Cigar City has made its way to NC and we get to try their award-winning brews on this show. I don’t know how this will be but I’m glad it’s here. I hear about Cigar City a lot on my drinking circles but because they’re new to here we’ve not had a chance to have many. Yes, this is an IPA but it is new and I’m wanting to try it. It’s 7.5% ABV and its IBUs are 70. Bring it on!
BeerAdvocate has it at 94 (Outstanding) and a Bros Score of 100 (World-Class)!! Wow! Untappd has it at 4.04 caps out of 5. RateBeer has it at 99 in style and overall. Those are all unbelievable numbers. I hope I like it. Have you tried it? What did you think? If you haven’t or just have a hankering for more, head to City Beverage and grab your sixer. Tell them it’s the TLD beer of the week and get 5% off your order.
If you’re wondering what Jai Alai is, first it’s pronounced Hi-ah-Lie but when you say it right it just comes out Hi Lie. Second, it’s like lacrosse and squash had a baby, kind of. You have these crazy hooked cups on your hand and you sling and catch it with that device. It looks fun but I wouldn’t want to try it. That’s too much running.
Tune in later tonight or tomorrow and see what Caitlin, Danielle, Bill, Shana and I thought about it.
Until tomorrow, same blog channel…
“Jai Alai, a game native to the Basque region of Spain, is played on a court called a fronton. Jai Alai players attempt to catch a ball using a curved mitt whilst the ball travels at speeds up to 188mph! Proving they have a sense of humor the Spanish dubbed this game, with its ball traveling at racecar speeds, ‘the merry game.'” – Cigar City website
