Hunahpu's Day 2023
Tampa Bay Beer Week is on the horizon which means here at CCB we’re celebrating another rotation around the sun and the annual release of our beloved Hunahpu’s Imperial Stout. This year we’re celebrating 14 years as a brewery with our 13th annual Hunahpu’s release and we’ve got a ton of excitement planned along the way. Join us bright and early on March 11th, starting at 8 a.m., for this year’s release and accompanying action. Those who pre-purchased through Oznr can begin picking up allotments at 8 a.m. and will receive pick-up instructions soon. If you missed the pre-sale, don’t fret, we will have a VERY limited amount of Hunahpu’s 2023 on-sale at Spruce Street on a first-come, first-served basis out of the Taproom cooler. Be sure to stay tuned because next year we will be back in a BIG way with the festival you all know and love!
This year, we’ve partnered with Tampa’s favorite local coffee roaster, Buddy Brew Coffee, to brew the 2023 variant, Ek Chuah’s Imperial Stout, and can’t wait to share it with beer and coffee lovers alike. Brewed to honor Ek Chuah, the Mayan patron of cacao, this Imperial Stout showcases the harmony of cacao nibs and beer, just as Buddy Brew Coffee illustrates the spirit of our Tampa Bay community. Buddy Brew will even be on hand pouring Huna-inspired cold brews in our pop-up beer garden starting at 8 a.m.
For our 2023 beer release, we’ve gone back to basics with a 500mL bottle format along with an anniversary celebration on our home turf, where it all started. We have some fantastic community partners and excitement in store this year including Buddy Brew Coffee, the Cravings Donut Truck, the Humane Society of Tampa Bay, as well as Wove Print Screen Printing, and CapCo Live Art. The CCB Taproom will feature a special Brewer’s Breakfast Menu from 8 – 11 a.m., as well as a pop-up beer garden outside. Attendees can expect to find rare, vintage, and specialty treated Hunahpu’s at the event, live art, adoptable pups and giveaways from our charity partners at the Humane Society, plus much more.
The 11.6% Imperial Stout brewed with a decadent blend of cacao nibs, vanilla beans, cinnamon, ancho, pasilla, and guajillo chile peppers was pre-sold through the Oznr Craft Beverage Marketplace with sales closing last week. We have reserved a VERY limited amount of this year’s Hunahpu’s for walk-up guests at an increased price. Be sure to join us bright and early if you did not hop on the pre-sale as these won’t last long.
Stay tuned to our social media channels to learn more. We can’t wait to celebrate another Hunahpu’s Day with you all!
