Funky Buddha Muy Bonita is back in action in March.
A big sister to the Oakland Park, Florida based brewery’s Bonita Applebum Apple Pie Brown (note the allusion to A Tribe Called Quest), Funky Buddha Muy Bonita is anything but small. The imperial brown ale is brewed with apple, cinnamon, and vanilla. Definitely, the bigger, badder “bum”.
The big sister to our Bonita Applebum Apple Pie Brown, Muy Bonita is a bigger, badder ‘bum. This double brown ale flaunts a bodacious body and a stunning combination of real cinnamon, vanilla, and apples. So thick, she’s like a hip hop song.
Funky Buddha Muy Bonita is a part of the brewery’s Small Batch Series, with likes of Lemon Meringue Pie, and Maple Bacon Coffee Porter. Available in 22 ounce bottles for a limited time starting March 19th.
8.8% ABV, 35 IBUs

Funky Buddha Moro Moro Blood Orange IPA pours once again on February 19th.
This beer is all about the Citrus × sinensis fruit, aka blood orange. Specifically the ‘Moro’ cultivar. The blood red juice gives this India pale ale a different juice complexity, when compared to oranges.
More Moro Blood Orange IPA is back! We ceremoniously slaughtered heaps of crimson-fleshed “Moro” fruit to retrieve its delicious ichor, and then blended it with caramel malts and grapefruity hops to produce the sticky, citrus blast that we crave. Oranges: you’re on notice.
Funky Buddha Moro Moro Blood Orange IPA is seasonally available in 12 ounce bottles and draft.
7% ABV, 50 IBUs
Funky Buddha The Love Below goes on sale at the brewery again on February 15th.
The base beer is Funky’s Nikolai Vorlauf Imperial Russian Stout, that has been aged in both Cabernet barrels and bourbon barrels. The barrels were then blended together with real cherries and 100% chocolate.
Thick and sultry, this is a beer best consumed with a very special friend.
Funky Buddha The Love Below will be available at the brewery again on February 15th, 2017.
12% ABV, 40 IBUs
A bit of bottled tropical for the colder months, that will be around for the warmer months as well. Funky Buddha Pineapple Beach is headed to shelves.
As the name suggests, pineapple is the star of Pineapple Beach. The blonde ale base features pilsner malt, a touch of wheat and citrus hops that compliment the tropical fruit headliner.
Funky Buddha Pineapple Beach fills a demand that we’re seeing for sessionable beers that appeal to a broad range of craft consumers. It’s easy-drinking but flavorful, which is exactly what our customers have been asking for.” – KC Sentz, co-owner and general manager of Funky Buddha Brewery

Next time you make a beer treat Oakland Park, Florida’s Funky Buddha Brewery, you’ll have a option to take home a crowler or two. The 32 ounce can-on-demand made popular like Oskar Blues is coming to the taproom soon.
The addition of crowlers will be a big benefit to visitors, judging by the amount of experimental draft only options that the brewery makes available.

Funky Buddha Butta’ Cup
Funky Buddha Undefeated Saison returns for a third year starting today, November 1st.
This beer is a tribute to the 1972 Miami Dolphins, who won their fourteen regular season games, three postseason games, Super Bowl VII, finishing 17-0. The Dolphins are still the only NFL team to accomplish this feat. (Every team has a loss in the 2016-2017 season as well.)
Funky Buddha Undefeated Saison is a bit like a biere de brut. The saison is brewed with Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grape must, and bottle-conditioned with champagne yeast. Inspired not only by the team’s record, but an urban legend that the members of the 1972 team raise a glass of champagne raise a glass in unison after the last undefeated team falls each season.
The result is a bubbly brew fit for celebration — as in toasting the still unmatched reign of our 1972 champs.
Funky Buddha Undefeated Saison is available in 750 milliliter, foil top bottles. $14/retail.
Fun Fact: It wasn’t until 2013 that the 1972 Dolphins got their trip to the White House.
