About Plasencia Cigars
Plasencia Cigars is one of the world’s leading growers of first-class tobacco. The Plasencia family have been pioneering the industry since 1865 when Don Eduardo Plasencia began growing tobacco in Cuba, and five generations of the Plasencia family have continued the legacy. Today, Plasencia Cigars produces more than 35 million handmade cigars per year, and harvests tobacco on more than 3,000 acres across several countries in Central America, including Nicaragua, Honduras, Costa Rica and Panama.
About The Tank Brewing Company
Founded by Carlos Padron with brewers Matt Weintraub and Moh Saade, Miami-based The Tank Brewing Company embodies a homegrown passion for brewing honest, expertly-crafted artisanal beer using only the finest ingredients from mash to tap; from the purity of the water to the extensive care that is taken in curating ingredients. Every drop, every step of the process, and every detail are tended to with pure love of beer in mind —which can be tasted in every sip. The Tank’s popular core beers La Finca Miami, Freedom Tower Amber and El Farito IPA were all inspired by the brewers’ love for their hometown, Miami.
About Cigar City Brewing
Cigar City Brewing, makers of Jai Alai and Hunahpu’s Imperial Stout, was founded in 2009 by Joey Redner with the goal of creating quality beer that reflected the flavors and history of the Tampa region. This unique perspective resonated with the local and national markets alike, and the brewery has quickly grown from 1,000 barrels of beer in 2009 to over 65,000 barrels produced in 2016. The 2016 partnership with Oskar Blues of Lyons, Colorado ushered in a new era of growth for this Florida-based organization with new markets and technologies on the horizon.
