Did you make it out to the Funky Buddha Brewery bottle release festival this past weekend? Did you get a chance to score a bottle or two of their highly rated and nationally sought after Maple Bacon Coffee Porter? No??
Then be thankful for happy accidents.
The Funky Buddha Brewery in Oakland Park let it be known that they may have 'uncovered' some 'forgotten' bottles of MBCP.
The Funky Buddha Brewery in Oakland Park let it be known that they may have 'uncovered' some 'forgotten' bottles of MBCP. This secret stash of nearly 200 bottles will be sold to the public, so hold your outrage!
"Great news, everyone: we wisely socked away a stash of our #maplebacon coffee porter to save for family and friends," the brewery declared via social media. "And after setting some aside, we discovered that we have an additional cache of 200 bottles to sell! We'll be releasing these next Tuesday at 6pm. There will be a one bottle limit per person, any bottles left unsold from there will be opened back up at 8pm. Cheers!"
Head down to the Oakland Park facility on January 21st at 6pm to try to claim and purchase a bottle if you have not done so already. The 22 ounce 'bombers' will be retailing for $15 a piece.
The beer is a hotly traded commodity in the beer trading world, securing trade values in the same range as Founders Bolt Cutter, Bruery Black Tuesday, and Goose Island Bourbon County Stout - Backyard Rye Barrel, as well as joining most big format Cigar City Brewing beers in craft beer aficionados' want lists. It's an interesting phenomenon to see for Florida beers, considering how young we are in the game.
