Head Brewer Tim Ogden has been brewing in the Tampa Bay Area for many years, most recently as the lead brewer at Cigar City Brewing’s original production facility. In addition to being on CCB’s award-winning brewing team, Tim developed the recipe for Tocobaga Red Ale for which he received a Grand Champion Award in the 2012 United States Beer Tasting Championship, as well as Moat Water, the anniversary beer for Skate Park of Tampa. For Cigar City Brewpub, Tim has designed a unique line of ales built around his favorite Belgian yeast strain, forbidden fruit.
Our food can best be described as Tampa-style Cuban cuisine, which differs in many respects from Cuban-influenced dishes from other regions like South Florida, coupled with Italian and German influences and of course Florida Cracker. A great example is the addition of salami on Tampa’s iconic Cuban sandwich and the unique palm frond split Cuban bread produced in bakeries like Tampa’s La Segunda. At Cigar City Brewpub we celebrate and pay homage to this unique heritage by making Tampa’s native dishes the cornerstone of our menu.
Chef Nicolay Adinaguev’s mission is to offer a handpicked selection of the farmers’ finest wares highlighting locally sourced and humanely raised meats free from adulteration such as hormones. This dedication to local purveyors and sustainable practices combined with small batch, house brewed ales, hand crafted cocktails and a celebration of Tampa’s one of a kind history, cuisine and culture inform all we do at Cigar City Brewpub.
We firmly believe that any one item is nothing more than a sum total of its details, from the obvious to the subtle. With that in mind it is our attempt to consider every detail as we craft your food and beverages alike. From house-made pickles and house-roasted local pork on our Cuban sandwich to the house-made soda selection, we strive to consider every detail. Our beer is made with food in mind and our food is made for beer. Our passion and dedication to our craft drives us in everything we do.
