The Lighter Side Of: Cigar City Brewing Tour

The third-best brewery tour in the nation
- Bob Lorber

I toured Cigar City Brewing the other day, the first time I’ve been led by head tour guide Bob Lorber.

I brought him a funny hat to wear, and if anyone else is taking the tour and wants to bring one along, feel free, he says.

Anyway, here’s a little photo gallery with some possibly inappropriate captions, most of them total fiction.

In all seriousness, Bob is an excellent tour guide and a friend of mine. He’ll have you snorting beer through your nose with his banter during the tour.

Tours are held Wednesday through Saturday on the hour from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. It’s advisable to sign up in advance on the website because they are limited to 20 persons per tour. Cost is $5, but that includes a brew to sip on the tour and a pint glass to take home. More information here.

Oh, and tips are accepted.

    Yes. One day I to must tour the brewery and converse with this “Bob Lorber”. He seems to be a right jovial character.

  3. I toured the brewery with him during Tampa Bay Beer Week. He was a hoot. Definitely a good guy.

    Ive been looking for Mr Lorber for some time now. I have a box of Table Talk I must return to him!

    Bob:
    The “Cop” from Pasco County might just have to come and do a tour with you so I can see for myself what a jovial guy you are. I expect you to wear the funny red hat!!!
