Yes, the Oakland Park brewery has devoted itself to the Sport of Kings by taking over a shiny metal-clad Airstream trailer and making it into a beer-serving outdoor mecca. No longer will polo fans be stuck with French Champagne; now they'll be able to enjoy this outdoor pastime with a locally crafted beer.
While the converted Airstream provides core favorites like Hop Gun IPA and Floridian Hefeweizen, Funky Buddha has pulled out the stops to brew a beer that you can get only at the polo grounds: Polo Ale.

This is a light and refreshing American pale ale. It pours a sun-gold color, bright and full of biscuity goodness, with subdued grassy hop character. It's a great outdoor beer, one that, in a perfect world, would be available at more venues. However, it is not, so it adds another reason to check out polo at the International Polo Club in Wellington
You can find the Funky Buddha Biergarten open Sundays from noon to 8 p.m. the International Polo Club (3667 120th Ave. S., Wellington) when a polo match is going on. Get the schedule at internationalpoloclub.com. Play cornhole and giant jenga, and even get growlers filled (for those who participate in the ultimate polo tailgating experience).
