Beer lovers throughout the state of Florida have no doubt heard of Funky Buddha Brewing Company located in the southern region on the state near Fort Lauderdale. The brewery specializes in creating outlandish brews with names like No Crusts Brown Ale, Tripel Lindy Belgian Tripel and Fuhgeddaboudit Red Ale. And, if the names sound crazy, the flavors are just as over-the-top. No Crusts Brown Ale, for example, is a peanut butter and jelly flavored beer that is truly amazing in its ability to differentiate and highlight each flavor. One truly tastes the peanut butter, raspberry jelly and bread in the brew.
But, in the month of January, aficionados of the brewery eagerly await the new release of what some have called one of the best porters on the face of the planet: Maple Bacon Coffee Porter. The beer will be packaged in 22 ounce bottles and sold exclusively at the brewery on January 10, 2015. The bottle release will be part of a day’s worth of festivities that will include food trucks with breakfast-themed pairings, live music, and multiple bars both indoor and outdoors.
The brew has the distinction of garnering some of the highest scores on two of craft beer’s most popular rating websites; 100 out of 100 RateBeer.com and 99 out of 100 on BeerAdvocate.com. One reviewer from Denmark said of the beer, “I just love how the maple syrup, coffee and chocolate notes blend together into something that reminds me of great chocolate confectionary or perhaps an American breakfast.”
Bottles of the sought-after brew will be available at the brewery only and are limited to four per person. Each bottle will sell for $15 and sales will commence at 12:00 p.m. on the day of the festival. When you make your purchase you will be given a ticket for each bottle you purchase and a wristband. Bottles may be picked up from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. and you must present your wristband and tickets at that time.
