At a time of year when every brewery in North America is releasing their version of pumpkin ale, Funky Buddha is bucking the trend and releasing a beverage brewed with the other Thanksgiving season staple; sweet potatoes. Four-packs of the brewery’s Sweet Potato Casserole Strong Ale will be dropping into retail outlets the week of September 1.
John Linn, Funky Buddha’s Brand Director, says of the brew, “Funky Buddha’s September through November seasonal is fresh out of the oven and ready to party.”
Linn describes the beer as presenting flavors of marshmallow, fall spices and sweet potato like any respectable mom would put into the iconic casserole. And, at 7.9% ABV, the brew packs a wallop mom’s creation does not.
SPC will go on sale at Funky Buddha Brewery in South Florida at noon on September 1 for $11.99 per 4-pack. It will also see full state distribution through Brown Distributing starting that week. Expect SPC to arrive in all major retailers including Total Wine, Whole Foods Market, ABC Fine Wine & Spirits, The Fresh Market, Trader Joe’s, and select Publix locations.
