Funky Buddha Now Available at Select Publix Locations

Just in time for watching all the playoff excitement in the privacy of your own home, Funky Buddha beer has announced their beer is available at select Publix locations throughout South Florida.

According to Funky Buddha's John Linn, the Funky Buddha team pitched their craft beers to Publix headquarters in Lakeland, Florida where they received a warm reception and an "OK" to be placed on their approved vendor list.

Linn said Funky Buddha, "targeted 25 Publix stores that sell a lot of craft beers". Publix will sell the Oakland Park brewery's Hop Gun IPA ($10.99) and Floridian Hefeweizen ($9.99) in six packs, with, hopefully, a larger assortment available in the coming months.

Here's a list of stores currently carrying Funky Buddha. If you don't see your favorite Publix on the list, Linn says to ask for it. "Any Publix store that wants to order it, can. Just let your Publix store manager know you'd like to buy it."
