Carnival Legend for the Cigar City / Carnival partnership announcement. This ship was amazing and I hope to visit the Carnival Legend again before she leaves Tampa and heads to Sydney. Once on board, we headed to the Red Frog Pub for some live music, appetizers and of course Cigar City Beer. This partnership makes perfect sense with the increasing popularity of craft beer. Last year, Florida's 66 small breweries produced 130,000 barrels (4.03 million gallons) of craft-brewed beer for an economic impact of $875.8 million, ranking the state 12th in the nation.
