Trying Cigar City's Tony Jannus Pale Ale

Posted by on Wed, Aug 29, 2012 at 3:50 PM

Fresh from the brewery, the Tony Jannus pale ale.
This Cigar City beer was named for the infamous local pilot who made the first commercial landing at Albert Whitted Airport in St. Pete. The beer is only being poured at the Tampa International Airport and Cigar City's tasting room, so before I embarked on a tour of Cigar City Brewing's expansion, I made sure to get a nice pour of the specialty brew.

At first, it's a light honey color with strong hops, but it mellows out toward the end. I'm a big Sierra Nevada fan and this reminded me a bit of SN's pale ale, but with less of a bite. It's not overly bitter, with citrus notes and a crisp finish. Overall, the Tony Jannus Pale Ale is damn delicious, and a great summer beer. Who doesn't love a drink named after a historical figure?

You can pick up a pint in the Southwest Airlines terminal at TIA, or visit the brewery's tasting room.
