The holidays may be over, but the festivities aren’t — especially at Funky Buddha Brewery in Oakland Park. The craft brewery is throwing its extremely popular Maple Bacon Coffee Porter Bottle Release Festival for the second year in a row on Saturday. The MBCP encompasses a perfect breakfast combination of sweet maple syrup, coffee, and salty-smoky bacon. This year, it will be packaged in 22-ounce bottles and sold exclusively at the festival, from noon to 10 p.m. Bottle sales begin at the same time and end at 3 p.m., or when all bottles are sold out. Bottle pickup begins at 4 p.m. and stops when all bottles are gone. Bottles cost $15, and sales will take place on the east side of the building next to the back parking lot. A limit of four bottles is allowed per person, and each buyer must be aged 21 and over. Cash or credit is accepted. There will also be a kick-ass tap list of other special Funky Buddha brews. And there will be a battery of food trucks to help you grub out, including Box of Chacos, Springin Rollout, Sidecar Kitchen, Da Burger Shack, Poblano’s Mexican Fusion, Frankie Dogs Gourmet Veggie Dogs, and Diablo Dog Hotdogs. The brewery is located at 1201 NE 38th St. in Oakland Park. Call 954-440-0046, or visit funkybuddhabrewery.com or the Facebook fan page dedicated solely to the event, which also contains a trusty FAQ section with questions ranging from bottle price to hotels for tourists to lay their heads when they come for the festival.
