English-style Pub Ale

Did you know?

Opened in 1891 across the Hillsborough River from downtown Tampa, the Tampa Bay Hotel, with its resplendent Moorish Revival design and crescent moon-topped minarets, quickly became one of the most recognizable and iconic features of Tampa’s nascent skyline. Henry Plant’s grandiose hotel boasted Florida’s first elevator and is now the home to the University of Tampa and the Henry B. Plant Museum.

Cigar City Brewing celebrates Henry Plant and his historic hotel with Minaret English-style Pub Ale, a malt-forward yet easy-drinking ale that brings to mind the nuanced and quaffable beers of the UK. Brewed with Maris Otter malt and traditional English hops, Minaret English-style Pub Ale boasts complex malt flavors, woody hop notes, and a perfect balance between these two qualities. Nitro dispense rounds out the beer and emulates traditional cask conditioning, making it a beer to revisit again and again while contemplating the man and the hotel that made Tampa famous.

Tasting Notes

Rich bready and bread-crust aromas meet red apple and stonefruit esters on the nose, while a malt-forward palate of toffee, fresh-baked bread and woody hop flavors are rounded out by a soft carbonation and light body by way of nitrogen dispense. Balanced and complex yet infinitely drinkable.
