Funky Buddha Lounge Turns 5; Break Out Kegs of No Crusts, Maple Bacon Coffee Porter, and More

Perennial craft-beer favorites Funky Buddha Lounge & Brewery in Boca Raton is celebrating its fifth anniversary on Saturday, September 26, starting at 3 p.m.

The brewery will be releasing more than 40 different beers, including world-famous favorite Maple Bacon Coffee Porter, the coconut/white-chocolate-inspired Last Snow, pie-in-a-glass Blueberry Cobbler, "Is this real life?" Fluffer Nutter, and French Toast, among others.

All of that beer needs to be soaked up, so the Buddha will bring in two food trucks to the event, Outside the Box and It’s a Cubano B. That means a Tower of Pork Power. It's delicious. You eat it.

For those seeking to bring some of the brewery home with them, there will be a raffle for Buddha swag and some hard-to-find bottles. No need to be present for when the raffle is drawn, so there's really no reason not to enter. Prizes will be held for at least a week after. Live music is scheduled to play out during the night, and as with previous anniversary parties, there will be no cover charge.

David Finch, assistant general manager of the lounge, shared some of the surprises that are in store.

"We have some specials... Rye Barrel Snowed In, Rye Morning Wood, Rum BA Cream with Blackberry." In addition, an array of Berliners will take the field: Strawberry-Kiwi, Cucumber-Lemongrass, Strawberry Basil, Berry Patch, and Mango Ginger. "Just to name a few," he said.

In previous years, the anniversary party has been a phenomenal experience to try the most coveted beers that the brewery produces and sample them all in one place. Here's hoping to see the Baklava Braggot make an appearance. A boy can dream.
