Craft beers aged in same wood used to make cigar boxes

Tobacco and beer: now there’s a classic combination. If you want to have a cigar with your favorite brew but you’re not so keen on the hazards of smoking, we’ve got just the thing for you. Straight out of the US cigar capital, Florida, comes the Humidor series of craft beers from Cigar City Brewing Company. Aged in Spanish cedar — the same wood that’s used to make cigar boxes — each of these funky beers is laced with the flavors of your favorite stogie like sandalwood and spices. Pop one open, toss it back, and relish the creative mingling flavors of two of the world’s cherished vices.
