About The Festival:
One of the premier craft beer events in the United States, Hunahpu’s Day® is an annual one-day celebration of Cigar City Brewing’s Hunahpu’s® Imperial Stout. Thousands of rabid beer fans descend on Tampa, Florida from all over the world to collect bottles of Hunahpu’s® Imperial Stout and celebrate its release with over 100 world class breweries while sampling their finest and rarest offerings in unlimited 2 ounce pours. Bottles of Hunahpu’s® Imperial Stout, a commemorative tasting glass, food, entertainment and camaraderie are all included in the cost of your ticket.
About The Beer:
In Mayan mythology, Hun Hunahpu was the father of the Mayan hero twins Hunahpu and Xbalanque. Hun Hunahpu, along with his brother Vucub Hunahpu, was tricked by the Dark Lords of the underworld and slain. Hun Hunahpu’s head was hung on a tree, which in typically awesome mythology fashion, spit upon the hand of a young maiden named Xquic who promptly became pregnant with the hero twins. The twins would ultimately grow up to avenge their father and uncle and defeat the Dark Lords and ascend the heavens to become the moon and sun. We brew Hunahpu’s® Imperial Stout once a year and release it only at the brewery on the second weekend in March. We will continue to do so until the end of the cycle.
