Calvert El Coquito

Stout – American / 8.7% ABV / 261 CAL / Upper Marlboro, MD /

El Coquito is a 8.7% blonde stout that pours golden and has a full body to resemble the Puerto Rican holiday drink. From the aroma and the initial taste, El Coquito is bursting with coconut and pairs well with the cinnamon, nutmeg, and vanilla. The milk sugar helps with the body to leave just the right amount of residual sugar and a mouthfeel of the creamy coconut drink.

This beer is sold in USA as Famosa. A clear golden lager beer with a characteristic body, fine bitternes and delicate aroma. Because of its full-bodied and balanced flavor it has become the preferred choice for those who enjoy a premium quality beer.

Cigar City Brewing® Florida ManTM

IPA – Imperial / 9% ABV / 50 IBU / 270 CAL / Tampa, FL /

The world needs heroes, and in our home state of Florida only a very special hero will do. A hero with a shark tooth around his neck, a Grim Reaper tattoo on his arm, and a rap sheet longer than his mama’s mustache. A hero who’s forgotten more about amateur taxidermy and alligator rasslin’ than you’ll ever know. What better way to pay tribute to our beloved Florida Man than with a big ol’ Double India Pale Ale brewed with a nearly-criminal amount of hops and a moderate bitterness that just about matches Florida Man’s general disposition. This hopped-up whopper of a beer is big in character and guaranteed to sear itself into your memory, just like “the world’s worst superhero,” Florida Man.

Cigar City Brewing® Maduro Brown Ale

Brown Ale – English / 5.5% ABV / 25 IBU / 200 CAL / Tampa, FL /

Maduro is a Northern English-style brown ale with some American affectations. Maduro is higher in alcohol than the common English brown ale and features flaked oats in the malt bill which imparts a silky body and works to mesh the roasted, toasted and chocolate components together in Maduro’s complex malt profile. The end result is a remarkably full-flavored yet approachable and sessionable brown ale that pairs well with mild to medium cigars.

Compañía Cervecera de Nicaragua Toña

Lager – Pale / 4.6% ABV / 138 CAL / Managua, Managua /

Toña is a 4.6% lager introduced in 1977 by ICSA as a direct competitor of the Victoria brand. After the 1996 merge, CNN relaunched the Toña brand as a traditional Nicaraguan beer, often associated with the local culture and customs.
