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.
