Funky Buddha and Due South Did Florida Proud At Boston's Extreme Beer Fest
The 11th annual Extreme Beer Fest was held this past weekend in the beer hub of the universe; Boston.
Funky Buddha Brewery / Twitter The Buddha crew with Sam Calagione of Dogfish Head Brewery.
In that vein, two of our favorite South Florida beer producers were invited to join in the pouring: Due South Brewing Company and Funky Buddha Brewery. What these two local businesses found was an audience who couldn't get enough.
Users on BeerAdvocate commented that lines for pours weren't bad at all. Member aea1156 said, "Even during the peak Funky Buddha & Toppling Goliath which had the longest lines moved nicely," while user hikeeba wrote, "Funky Buddha's line doubled back on itself today. I timed 15 min for my wait (but it was well worth it!)"
As for the beers that were brought in, Funky Buddha Brewery came out strong with Veruca Snozzberry Gose, Last Snow (Coconut White Chocolate), Maple Bacon Coffee Porter, Nano-Nano Porter Porter (a collaboration with Dogfish Head), Randy's Old Fashioned Whiskey Barrel-Aged Ale, French Toast Double Brown Ale, and No Crusts (Peanut Butter and Jelly) Brown Ale.
Due South was getting some Boston love as well.
