Beer Week: Brewing up breakfast at Eggs and Kegs

The smell of pulled pork and bread pudding greeted the several dozen people who lined up for "Eggs and Kegs" at Cigar City Brewing on Sunday.

They piled plates full of ancho pulled pork with corn cakes and Cigar City's Hunahpu bourbon maple syrup, They sampled cheesy potatoes and eggs with Bell's Hopslam and tomato-chili sauce.

People raved about the cacao cafe con leche French toast with a drizzle of espresso chocolate ganache.

Inside the recently expanded tasting room, bartenders served up Bell's famous Hopslam Ale and Cigar City's sour Dos Años Kumquat Berliner Weisse, among other beers.

LOKO Cuisine made the food, and it was a hit. The flavors from the beer used in the recipes was subtle and the food solid.

The tasting room saw about 150 people Sunday, and it was crowded — but nothing like it will be Saturday, when hundreds descend for the release of Cigar City's Hunahpu Imperial Stout.

    Noel Cruz seemed remarkably chill. As did his partner Kerem Koca. All around them in the Station House building in St. Petersburg, workers pounded the last nails, bartenders unpacked boxes of glassware and jewel-toned bottles of Amari, and the kitchen rolled through a final round of karaage and izakaya small plates.
