10:00am,Ybor Cuban Cultural Tour

The day starts out with a brief cultural tour of Ybor City (historically also known as “Cigar City”). We will start the tour at El Parque de los Amigos (Friends Park) where we will talk about the historical significance of José Martí (and Antonio Maceo) as it pertains to the Cuban War of Independence as well as his visit to Tampa and other parts of the U.S. We will then do a short walkabout through Ybor to look at some of the 19th century architecture and buildings that once served as cigar rolling factories. Understanding the history of Cuba and Ybor City will serve to give you a better sense of the deep roots in our old cigar factories and our new breweries and restaurants.

10:30 a.m.,Tabanero Cigars

In the heritage of the once named Cigar Capital of the World, Ybor City (in Tampa, Fl), Tabaner Cigars brings back the cigar industry with respect for the history of the Cuban cigar and its craft in rolling. We will take a 45 minute tour where we walk you through: How Tampa was made with the cigar industry; The process of manufacturing the hand-made cigars with the cigar rollers at work; The quality control process of Tabanero’s factory; Tabanero Cigars will take you in their walk-in humidor and explain the aging process; In the humidor you will experience the different aromas by inspecting our tobacco leafs; Then there's a brief power point presentation on how to cut, punch, light and set off the hand-made cigars the correct way; You will also have the opportunity to purchase cigars and we will stop at places where you can enjoy them with your beer.

11:30 a.m.,Hidden Springs Ale Works (1 Drink Included)

Despite the minimalist look, Hidden Springs' tasting room is quite welcoming. Hidden Springs is well-positioned to be the local watering hole, is within walking distance to Ulele, where we will have lunch, and an analog to Seminole Heights' Angry Chair. It's the spot where residents of the soon-to-be condos will grab a pint after work.

12:45 p.m.,Lunch at Ulele (1 Drink Included)

Ulele – (pronounced You-lay-lee) celebrates the vibrant fusion of ingredients from Florida waters and land once home to many Native Americans, including the young princess Ulele. Expect intricately flavored, visually appealing dishes prepared on the 10' diameter barbacoa grill. Ulele also brews their own beers and boasts of an extensive wine and spirits collection. We will have lunch at this restaurant, which is on the scenic Hillsborough river. Lunch and 1 drink are included in this trip.

2:30 p.m.,Coppertail Brewing Co. (1 Drink Included)

Coppertail Brewing is an independently owned production brewery and tasting room in the Ybor neighborhood of Tampa, FL. It was founded on the desire to bring more quality, Florida-brewed beer to the thirsty masses. We will take a tour of Coppertail, which will include a souvenir pint glass and the opportunity to taste some beers during the tour. There is 1 additional drink as part of the Tour. Take your time and taste some of the amazing beers at this location.

Angry Chair Brewery (1 Drink Included),4:00 p.m.

Everybody has an angry chair, be it work, a traffic jam, or where else. Angry Chair Brewing is about the realization that you have one and the celebration that you can get away from it. Angry Chair founders come from a corporate background where they associated these places as their “angry chair”. This brewery is a great place to relax in a smaller environment and enjoy some great creative beers. Although there is no brewery tour at Angry Chair (yet), there is 1 drink included at this stop.

5:00 p.m.,Cigar City Brewery (1 Drink Included)

Capitalizing on the Latin culture and tobacco-manufacturing history of Tampa Bay, Cigar City highlights those strengths on its labels and in its beer names and recipes. Many of the beers it produces – Jai Alai IPA, Improv Oatmeal Rye India, Style Brown Ale, and Cubano-Style Espresso Brown Ale – reflect the sensibilities and ingredients of Florida. We will take a tour at this Brewery and enjoy 1 additional drink at the end. During the tour, you will: Receive a one of a kind glass that only the tour offers; Beer sampling along the tour; In-depth knowledge of the brewing processes and history of Cigar City Brewing.

6:45 p.m.,The Columbia Restaurant (1 Drink Included)

The Columbia Restaurant was founded in 1905 and is Florida’s oldest restaurant. Locations include the flagship restaurant in Tampa’s Historic Ybor City. This unique award-winning restaurant blends Spanish and Cuban food, music, and culture for a truly unforgettable experience. We will also enjoy a traditional flamenco show with dinner. The flamenco show consists of rhythmic dance steps performed on a hard wood floor. It originated with the Spanish Gypsies and has evolved through the years to the more structured form familiar today. The classical Spanish dances consist of ballet moves in colorful Spanish costumes accompanied by the distinctive sound of castanets. The Colombia restaurant has received many accolades, some of which are: Named One of America’s Most Historic Restaurants by USA Today; Named an All-American Icon by Nation’s Restaurant News, one of only fifty restaurants in the U.S. chosen for this honor; The Largest Spanish Restaurant in the World (House Resolution 9013); Winner of Wine Spectator’s Best of Award of Excellence, in 2004 and every year since for an outstanding collection of Spanish wines, with more than 1,056 different wines, inventory exceeds 50,000 bottles); Honored with a Five Forks rating by the government of Spain as Outstanding Spanish Restaurant In North America; The Columbia’s Original "1905" Salad® selected as “One of America’s Top 10 Best Salads” by USA Today; Named one of Southern Living Magazine’s “Favorite Regional Tastes” for Spanish and Cuban cuisine in the April 2005 “Our Favorites” issue.

9:30 p.m.,Rock Brothers (1 Drink Included)

Rock Brothers unites craft beer and music to support great artists, great beer and even greater fans. In the ever-changing climate of the music industry, artists are looking for new revenue streams, while fans are looking for new ways to connect with their favorite musicians… We believe this authentic partnership of music and beer brings that home in a new and innovative way. From recipe inception, brand creation, artwork design and even the name of the product itself, the band is involved every step of the way.
