Some breweries are starting to release their beer lineup schedules for the new year, so even though it’s earlier than I was posting these at the beginning of this year, I’ll start publishing them now. First up is Florida’s Cigar City Brewing, who not only shared their 2018 beer lineup but also their refreshed logo design.
Here is the full press release:
After months of collaboration with North Carolina agency The Brandit, Cigar City Brewing begins the rollout of their refreshed identity system today beginning with their social media and ecommerce platforms.
Crafted to celebrate and modernize their previous mark, the new logo will begin being seen in the marketplace in coming weeks and can be found on their latest 22 oz. release, Café con Leche. The full identity system can be viewed at BrandFolder.com/
The new identity system launch is one of multiple exciting developments slated for Cigar City Brewing in the coming months. Other exciting changes can be seen on their 2018 Distribution Calendar, which includes the addition of a new year-round beer, Guayabera Citra Pale Ale.
The calendar includes Cores, Special Releases, and a Nitro Series, poised to hit CCB’s entire distribution footprint.

Not much to comment on here, other than to say that it would be nice if 2018 was the year that Cigar City entered Oregon distribution.
And, here is their refreshed logo:
