Funky Buddha and Tap 42 Release of 42 Truths Florida Pale Ale 
When a brewery comes out with a beer release, it’s great. When two breweries collaborate and come out with a release, it’s magical. 42 Truths Florida Pale Ale is a hybrid beer created by Funky Buddha Brewery and Tap 42. The beer is an American pale ale that’s key features include Northwestern hops, caramel malts, and an orange peel. The Tap 42 Fort Lauderdale location (1411 S. Andrews Ave., Fort Lauderdale) will feature this beer, and on Thursday, the Boca Raton location (Town Center Circle, Boca Raton) will. Visit Tap42.com or FunkyBuddhaBrewery.com.

Hump Days at Tamarac Park
