Cigar City Brewing — Living the Jai Life in Tampa, Florida

Fast becoming my favorite brew in the state. And a fantastic article about it.


Even though we’ve barely recovered from our most recent visit, it’s time to grab a bib and head back over to the Department of Outrageously Overindulgent Bloody Marys

Last week we posted about an amazingly over the top Bloody Mary created by Sarah Jayne Pickart at O’Davey’s Irish Pub in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin. Sarah works at O’Davey’s on the first Sunday of every month. The pub doesn’t open until 11am, but eager patrons start queueing outside as early as 8am in hopes of getting their eager hands on one of Sarah’s awesome creations.

“While there, she works up between 100 and 150 very insane Marys, each of which 1) gets loaded with more food than most people eat in a day, 2) follows a changing theme (next month’s is “Props to the Pig”), and 3) COSTS FIVE FRIGGIN’ DOLLARS. God bless you, Midwest.”

It seems that the folks over at Thrillist were so impressed with Sarah’s Milwaukee Brewer’s Bloody Mary that they challenged her to outdo herself, and boy did she ever succeed. Behold the glorious monstrosity that is the “”Wisconsinite Delight” Bloody Mary.

Here is a complete list of ingredients (It’s a doozy):

  • Ketel One
  • Homemade tomato mix
  • 1 blue-cheese-stuffed olive
  • 1 garlic olive
  • 1 pimento-stuffed olive
  • String beans
  • Sugar snap peas 
  • Broccoli
  • 1 stalk of celery 
  • Green onions
  • 1 green pepper
  • 1 cucumber slice 
  • 1 radish
  • 1 sprig of dill
  • Pickled baby corn
  • Pickled green beans 
  • Pickled asparagus
  • 1 pickled Brussels sprout 
  • 1 pickled carrot
  • 1 pickled mushroom
  • 1 pickled onion 
  • Pickled garlic
  • Pickled cauliflower
  • 1 pickled pickle 
  • Dill cheese curds 
  • 1 venison stick
  • Beer salami
  • Corn on the cob
  • Roasted asparagus
  • 1 BBQ rib
  • A skewer loaded with prime rib, baby potatoes, and mushrooms
  • A triple-decker fish sandwich
  • A homemade bacon-wrapped jalapeno popper
  • A miniature brat with all the trimmings 
  • A bison-and-bacon cheeseburger
  • 1 chicken wing 
  • More bacon
  • 1 slice of freshly buttered rye bread 
  • Pepper jack
  • Cranberry cheddar
  • Mozzarella cheese whip
  • Coleslaw
  • Potato salad 
  • A ham roll-up 
  • Pepperoncini

And remember, it only costs $5:

“…despite giving away a shopping cart for $5, thanks to the crowds, they make more money on the days Sarah’s making bloody magic than the days she’s not.”

Sarah Jayne Pickart, the Geyser of Awesome salutes you!

If there’s a bloody mary out there that doesn’t pale in comparison to this one, we’d love to see it.

This is how a man spends an afternoon.
