UPDATE: This week’s contest is now closed
We sifted through countless entries this week, whittling them down to 8 finalists for our Smoke Night Live show. Master Sensei & Terence Reilly picked our two winners live on the show, including Drew D. & Haxxerd!
It’s been a solid 4 weeks since we announced our 1st ever craft beer night on Cigar Dojo, featuring a full night of craft beer and cigar pairings. Well the days are now creeping up on us, and if you haven’t secured your oddball craft beer and stogie pairings yet, now is the time to do so!
But of course we couldn’t have a good mega HERF without some epic prizes, it’s just not the Dojo style… The choice for the cigar giveaway was obvious, it’s the one brand that features multiple cigars blended to pair with craft beers – Quesada Cigars.
Quesada is perhaps most well-known for their annual Oktoberfest line of cigars, made to pair with the beer of the same name. And just this year, Quesada introduced the new Keg cigar, a St. Paddy’s Day-themed smoke that is blended to pair with your favorite Irish stout, the cigars are even packaged in miniature wooden kegs – these guys know a good beer and cigar pairing!
We’ve also partnered up with one of our favorite craft breweries, a local establishment in the Denver area – Dry Dock Brewing! (Now this contest is really starting to heat up!)
This week’s contest theme is: Craft Beer & Cigar Pairings
This week’s contest is just as easy as it is tasty! Yes the real festivities are going down on Friday night, but that doesn’t mean you can’t start early. Grab a craft beer and pair it with a tasty stogie, spice it up with a couple filters and you have yourself a solid entry!
Some examples of entries may be:
- Smoke a cigar at your favorite brewery (if they allow it)
- Show us the weirdest cigar and beer pairing you can find!
- Smoke the most rare cigar and beer pairing imaginable…

Entering the contest is as simple as:

Our contest this week will run from Tuesday, March 3rd at 6pm (MST) until Friday, March 6th at 6pm (MST). The winners will be announced on Friday night on this week’s episode of Smoke Night Live featuring Terence Reilly of Quesada Cigars.
And the PRIZES are….
Box of 20 Quesada 40th Anniversary cigars
There will be 2 grand prize winners this week, both receiving a full box of Quesada’s new 40th Anniversary cigars in the 5 x 52 robusto vitola! Made to honor Manuel Quesada’s 40th anniversary in the cigar industry, Quesada’s daughters have created this blend for the special occasion. You may know this cigar for the bizarre Salomon Press vitola, a first of its kind in the industry. Though this robusto format is the perfect size to experience what the cigar really has to offer – showcasing a Mexican San Andrés wrapper over Dominican and Nicaraguan binder and fillers.
There are also multiple prizes from Dry Dock Brewing, including a t-shirt, hats, and sticker. Our winners will have to duke it out over their selections from Dry Dock…
NOTE: This week’s winners will be picked by Master Sensei & Terence Reilly of Quesada Cigars. They will be judging the entries on artistic quality (best images), creativity, and originality. Entries and extra credit will add to your chances, giving you a better shot at being picked.
