Drew Estate Postpones Florida Barn Smoker 2020 Due to COVID-19


Drew Estate has announced that it has postponed its upcoming Florida Barn Smoker 2020 event due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The event, originally scheduled for May 16 in Clermont, Fla., has been rescheduled to Nov. 14, with the VIP Dinner Experience happening on Nov. 13.

The company says it made the decision “solely as an extreme precaution to ensure the safety of our staff, the staff of the Florida Sun Grown farm and most importantly the 700 Barn Smoker attendees who travel across the country for this extraordinary American Tobacco Experience.”


Tickets for the event will be honored for the new dates, and the company says that any ticket holder who can no longer attend will be eligible to receive a refund, either through Eventbrite or by emailing [email protected]

The company added that it is monitoring the progression of the COVID-19 pandemic, and will announce updates to its other Barn Smoker Events currently scheduled for Pennsylvania, Connecticut, Kentucky and Louisiana.

The Drew Estate Barn Smoker events are held on tobacco farms in one of five states that supply tobacco to Drew Estate. The events feature a tour of the tobacco facilities, exclusive cigars, lunch, and a raffle that benefits Cigars for Warriors.

About the author

I strive to capture the essence of a cigar and the people behind them in my work – every cigar you light up is the culmination of the work of countless people and often represents generations of struggle and stories. For me, it’s about so much more than the cigar – it’s about the story behind it, the experience of enjoying the work of artisans and the way that a good cigar can bring people together. In addition to my work with halfwheel, I’m the public address announcer for the Colorado Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks during spring training, as well as for the Salt River Rafters of the Arizona Fall League, the WNBA's Phoenix Mercury and the Arizona Rattlers of the Indoor Football League. I also work in a number of roles for MLB.com, plus I'm a voice over artist. I previously covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for Examiner.com, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
