“The party raged for seven days until it was complete…”
A perennial favorite among the Cigar City staff, Berkeley, California’s Samiam sees heavy rotation not only around Cigar City but around many other Tampa Bay area breweries. When the opportunity presented itself to brew a beer with Samiam for The Fest in Gainesville and Pre-Fest in Tampa, we knew a few other aging punk rockers (aged, actually) in the Tampa Bay brewing community who would want to be a part of the action.
Along with our friends at Coppertail Brewing Co., Tampa Bay Brewing Company and Slim Pickens Cider and Mead, we developed this recipe with the guys from Samiam in honor of one of our favorite hops and favorite Samiam songs, El Dorado. The hop’s characteristic apricot and pear flavors are supported by a simple malt bill that allow the uniqueness of El Dorado to shine.
Look for Samiam’s El Dorado around Gainesville and Tampa during The Fest and Pre-Fest beginning October 26th, 2016.
