Cigar City Brewing Hunahpu’s Day: Bad news, good news and better news (Updated)

The Bad News

The previously announced bottle limit of three at Cigar City Brewery’s Hunhapu’s Day has been reduced to two to accommodate the expected demand.

Owner Joey Redner said he doesn’t want anyone not to be able to get their hands on the limited release of the coveted imperial stout on Saturday, March 10. All other factors remain the same. Wristbands will be given out at 11 a.m. to allow the purchase of the two bottles when they go on sale at 3:30 p.m. There will be a half-dozen sites set up on the property where bottles can be purchased.

The Good News

This means there likely will be more bottles available at 7:30 p.m., when the two-bottle limit is lifted. Each person can buy up to 12 bottles (one case), if there are any remaining. According to an announcement on the Cigar City Facebook page, “We didn’t brew any more beer than last year, which was a mistake on our behalf and is something we’ll fix for next year’s release.”

The Best News

Not only will there be about 30 Cigar City taps flowing with rare, old and one-off creations, as well as some standards, the brewery announced a stellar guest tap list. Hardcore beer geeks may want to sit down before reading through it.
