Funky Buddha Brewery Maple Bacon Coffee Porter Bottle Release and Festival
(Oakland Park, FL) – Funky Buddha Maple Bacon Coffee Porter is back with a festival to accompany it! Read on for all the details, Cheers!
Maple Bacon Coffee Porter is back, baby! Our annual bottle release and festival returns on January 10, 2015, so save the date! This epic street party will take place all day and include a swarm of food trucks, special release beers, debut tastings, and bottles of MBCP itself.
This highly-sought after beer was initially released last January and has since earned acclaim for its combination of sticky-sweet maple syrup, fresh roasted coffee, and salty-smokey bacon.
This beer will be packaged in 22 ounce bottles and sold exclusively at the brewery on January 10, 2015. This bottle release will be part of a day’s worth of festivities that will include food trucks with breakfast-themed pairings, live music, and multiple bars both indoor and outdoors.
