Each brewery will come together for a collaboration beer that combines local ingredients, most particularly salt harvested from area beaches.
They will brew Nano-Nano, a double porter made with Tanzanian chocolate, oak-fired habanero, and "salt-salt," a combination of sea salts -- one salt locally harvested from South Florida beaches and one from Rehoboth Beach, Delaware where the Dogfish Head brewpub is located and 15 miles away from its headquarters in Milton.
The collaboration celebrates both breweries humble origins. There won't be long to wait, since Nano-Nano will be available on draft at the Rehoboth Beach brewpub in about a month, as well as at the Extreme Beer Fest in March.
The beer will most likely be on tap. Whether or not it will be canned or bottled, or if it will be available in South Florida, remains to be seen.
Either way, zythophiles will most certainly flock to the scene of a collaboration between two highly-regarded craft breweries. Funky Buddha had its first Maple Bacon Coffee Porter bottle release and Dogfish Head is known for its highly sought-after 120 Minute IPA
This is not Funky Buddha's first collaboration, but first one since its production brewery opened last June. Previously, Funky Buddha collaborated with Cigar City Brewing in Tampa, Saint Somewhere Brewing in Tarpon Springs and Tequesta Brewing in Jupiter.
