Cigar City Lactobacillus Guava Grove Available NOW

Cigar-City-Lacto-Guava-GroveSour guavas in your face! Cigar City Lactobacillus Guava Grove is officially available in their tasting room as of Thursday, December 5. Triple fermentation action on this one too – First Lacto, then saison yeast, finished with the intrepid guava fruit.

The details:

  • $9 per 750mL bottle
  • No bottle limit
  • Tasting room only for now, Cigar City “hopes” to get these out into distribution eventually

Commercial description:

Guava Grove is an American Sour Guava Ale that experiences three fermentations. Primary fermentation is conducted with lactobacillus, a bacteria that sours the wort. The secondary fermentation takes place when we add a saison yeast that is French in origin. The tertiary fermentation is spurred by the addition of one of Tampa’s favored fruits, guava. The acidity of this elegant ale cuts fatty foods and oily fish from the palate beautifully. Pairs well with mussels cooked in gueuze, ceviche, ferrines and rich, creamy cheese or cheesecake.

Cigar City Brewing Company is located at 3924 W Spruce Street in Tampa.
