    A brewer in Florida is harnessing the flavor of the hand-rolled cigars Tampa is famous for in his craft beer.

    Joey Redner, owner of Cigar City Brewing, is using ingredients such as Spanish cedar, guava, Cuban espresso and citrus woods to craft beers that taste of Tampa’s heritage. Tampa’s nickname is “The Big Guava,” so Redner made a Belgian-style saison using guava. Cuban heritage — and Cuban coffee — also is important to the city, so Redner made an ale that included Cuban roasted espresso.

    The Florida craft beer industry has typically been small, with only 3 breweries in 2007. But since then, at least nine breweries have opened, with a few more in the works.
