Community,  Culture  and Commitment

The Cigar Community is a close knit community of diverse individuals that share a love for cigars. It is a community where ALL are welcome.

Our community is part of a growing culture that prides itself on learning about cigars, their origins, tastes, shapes and fillers. We also enjoy our cigars, our conversations, events and good times.

PhatAsh is committed to providing opportunities for community and culture to come together. Our products and offerings are of premium quality and are sure to
never disappoint.

The Phat Ash culture focuses on those in the community who hold their Ash while enjoying their cigar. Holding the Ash requires a special skill set and technique.

Question: Why do people hold their Ash while smoking a cigar?

Answer: The Ash itself and the technique used to ash a cigar can influence the quality of a smoke, including the flavor and scent. A well-maintained, inch-long cigar Ash will optimize the cigar smoking experience.

The Phat Ash brand has been created to pay tribute to those who hold their Ash and those who can appreciate a nice Ash. However, the brand is fun, sleek and can be enjoyed by all.

Here’s what attendees like best about Brew City Cigar Festival:

One of the best events I have attended in my life. I attend a lot of things like this and I was completely blown away.

The variety of cigars and liquor – along with the friendly staff! It’s a terrific venue.

One word: AWESOME! If you are someone that enjoys cigars, even just occasionally, this is an event that will help to enjoy those cigars tremendously.

Everything was top notch! The overall value of the event; I felt you definitely got your money’s worth. Also the seminars were very informative.

Extremely well managed and accommodating. Basically, a Chicago style event in Milwaukee.

Overall I loved it. It’s great to have a rare opportunity like this. I will very likely return next year.. with more friends.

I LOVED the food, large selections of alcohol to sample, Steak dinner, early VIP access, the choice of cigars. The swag bag was outstanding! I loved the cigar tube and whiskey glass. I could go on and on, but it was one of the best nights of my life.

An evening of indulgence – great cigars, booze, food, music and camaraderie in a relaxed environment!

Loved the girls that came by to help light cigars, etc – they were fun. Loved the music before hand – and having a meal in the VIP area.

This is a total package of fun – Cigars, Drinks, Friendly Helpers and good food. The environment is chill and the quality is high.

It’s a fun time where you can get some great cigars and try out some different drinks while enjoying your favorite or new stick and drink with friendly people and cigar vendors.

A great opportunity to schmooze with and learn from cigar folks and attendees.

Relaxed, upscale cigar, libations and epicurean extravaganza

Nirvana for cigar smokers.

Great event to learn about cigars; whether you are a newbie or experienced smoker.

It is every cigar and whiskey aficionados dream event

Cancel everything else that you are doing that night and attend this event. Nothing compares to this. Nothing.
