Rock Brothers Brewing, Cigar City Brewing Beers To Be Featured at Hard Rock Cafe Tampa’s January ‘Tap Takeover’

TAMPA, Fla. (January 5, 2016) – Hard Rock Cafe in Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tampa will be hosting a “Tap Takeover” on Thursday, January 21, from 5 p.m. to midnight, featuring a selection of Rock Brothers Brewing and Cigar City Brewing beers on draft.

The Rock Brothers beers that will be available include High Road Ale, Nare Sugar Brown and Nothing Too Fancy Pale Ale, while the Cigar City beers offered will include Jai Alai, Cigar City Lager and Peach InCider.

Twelve-ounce beers will be on sale for just $5 each and those who attend will have the opportunity to meet the brewery representatives and collect “swag.”

Music will begin at 5 p.m., followed by a free performance by the group Melodime at 9 p.m.

Rock Brothers Brewing began as an idea in Atlanta and took full form in the founders’ hometown of Tampa just as the craft beer boom was exploding.

Uniting craft beer and music, an opportunity presented itself to ignite the brand in 2012 and by the spring of 2014 it came to life with the local band “Have Gun Will Travel.” Before the product ever hit the tap lines, it received a National Championship win at the United States Beer Tasting Championship. This was due in great part to Rock Brothers recipe collaborator and brand partner Cigar City Brewing.
