Cigar and Microbrew Pairing Episode III

banner-1The powers of these cigar pairings have doubled since the last time we met… On Saturday August 31st at 7pm, we will be hosting another cigar and microbrew pairing in Fishers (click here for the address). It appears we have fallen into several West Coast brews that the the Separatist Droid Army has stolen from the Republic. What better way to enjoy these valuable brews, than to pair them with a blend of Nicaraguan/Honduran longfillers with Honduran binders and Ecuadorian Connecticut shade wrappers. Alec Bradley Connecticut cigars are mild to medium in strength, with a little more spice and complexity than you would expect from a Connecticut cigar. It produces plumes of creamy and cool smoke that coat the palate with notes of cedar, nuts, and toast before a slightly sweet finish. These are perfect for those who appreciate a flavorful milder cigar, or for someone struggling between light and dark forces. Remember each beer picked for this event IS NOT distributed in Indiana. I am selecting hard to find brews from the up and down the West Coast and shipping them back specifically for this tasting. These tickets are sure to go fast, so please purchase them as soon as possible! Hope to see you there. 1st 15 people to sign up are guaranteed a spot at the tasting. You can also see who’s coming by visiting the Facebook Event Page. May the force be with you 🙂


Cigar and Beer Tasting Revisited

Our first Cigar and Beer Pairing was one of our smoothest tastings to date. Many thanks to Ryan and Jenny Kraner for taking this idea and running with it. I’m sure there were countless hours of research going into this :). I’d also like to thank Eric Cole for hosting the event. Such a great time! CAO Gold Corona Gordo cigars were paired with Saison Dupont, Franziskaner Weissbier Dunkel, Triton Magnificent Amber, and John Henry Colonial Cream & Brown Ale (one of my favorites). Some homebrew also made an appearance including BIMP’s Wheat Wine, Super Duper Cuker (Wheat Wine w/ Cucumber), and FIC Bier (Dunkel Weisse). Each beer was sampled before lighting the cigar, and then again while smoking it. You’d be amazed at how the flavor characteristics of each beer morphed throughout the process. Lighter beers were sampled first, and moved towards darker/heavier/stronger beers towards the end. All around great event!

Microbrew and Cigar Pairing

anticipationHello Hello! I’d like to invite you to a microbrew and cigar tasting! On June 29th, we will be pairing a CAO Gold cigar with four carefully picked beers to match this wonderful cigar’s flavor profile. Made by hand in Nicaragua, the soothing CAO Gold cigar is blended from aged long leaves, including an exquisite wrapper made with leaves from Connecticut-seed grown in Ecuadorian soil, and Cuban-seed Nicaraguan filler and binder. Silky, medium-bodied flavor that’s deep and complex which delivers flavors of vanilla, cream, nutmeg, and toasted nuts. Please join us on June 29th for this awesome event. Admission is $15, cigars and beer provided. 1st 15 to sign up reserve a spot in the tasting. Visit the Facebook Event page here to see who’s coming. Cheers!
