The Oakland Park-based brewery recently announced this year's specialty release schedule with big changes that include new product and series launches as well as packaging changes for some of the brewery's most popular limited releases, says Funky Buddha marketing director John Linn.
Keep an eye out for the new Box of Buddhas, a 12-ounce-can variety 12-pack that will highlight exclusive beers. In February, the brewery will also launch an all-new mixology series that will offer a line of barrel-aged, cocktail-inspired beers such as a margarita
In addition, the Goodness Series will revamp the lineup with six-packs of 12-ounce cans in place of glass bottles. These canned beers will include Last Snow, the brewery's coconut and coffee porter; the Key Lime Pie tart ale; and two new beers never before released in cans, including the Cosmic Journey hazy IPA and Bonita Applebum brown ale.
Other new beers include the Mocha Smuggler, a barrel-aged imperial porter that takes another past favorite and adds coffee to it, Linn says. There's also S'More to Love, a smoked porter that tastes like — you guessed it — s'mores, and Juicy Smalls, an East Coast-style, hazy double IPA.
