We’re proud to announce that our first bottle released here at the brewery will be Maple Bacon Coffee Porter! This highly-sought after beer was first brewed at the Funky Buddha Lounge & Brewery in Boca Raton, 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 11, 2014. 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.

Q: How many bottles of MBCP can I buy?
A: Each attendee may purchase up to 2 bottles of MBCP on a first come, first served basis. If any bottles are left unsold after 7pm, they will be released the following day and sold in the tap room.
Q: How much will MBCP cost?
A: $15 per bottle. Bottle sales will be cash only. There will be an ATM located adjacent to the bottle tent.
Q: Can I bring bottles to share?
A: Bottle sharing will be permitted outside the Tap Room within the designated festival grounds, which includes the plaza out front of our building (all along the building) and on the west side of the building facing the tracks. You may not open Funky Buddha growlers on the premises at all! Drinking any alcohol in the adjacent parking lots, neighborhoods, or in front of neighboring businesses will not be permitted.
Some people have asked about tailgating. The best spot for this will be in the east parking lot running “behind” our building. You may bring a tent, etc. but it cannot take up a parking spot – it must go behind your car. Please don’t impede traffic as well. No cooking devices (stoves, grills, etc.) will be permitted.
Q: Can I bring my kids?
A: Supervised minors are always welcome at Funky Buddha Brewery until 8 pm.
Q: Can I bring my dogs/monkeys/parakeets?
A: Well-behaved dogs are permitted on our grounds, but not inside the tap room. Please leave your pet pigs, alligators, and wildebeasts at home. Thanks!
Q: What beers will be on draft? Do we need tickets to purchase beers?
A: See the tap list above. Tickets will be required to purchase all beers. $5 = one ticket = one beer. Pour sizes may vary. We will take credit cards for ticket sales. Tickets are good for January 11, 2014 only. All sales are final.
Q: Will there be tours?
A: Tours have unfortunately been cancelled for January 11, but we will be conducting additional tours on January 12. If you’d like to take a tour, Sunday is the day to do it that week!
Q: Will food be available?
A: Yes. We will have multiple food trucks throughout the day with beer pairings and special dishes. See above for pairings so far.
Q: If I arrive early, can I get my bottle in advance?
A: You can arrive early, but we will not begin sales until 11am. Bottles will not be distributed until 3pm
Q: Will growlers be available for purchase?
A: Yes, you can purchase a limited selection of growlers inside at the merchandise booth. Please note that growlers are for to-go only, and cannot be consumed on premises! Anyone caught with an open Funky Buddha growler will be asked to leave.
Q: Is there a good place to stay if I’m coming from out of town?
A: Yes, the Westin Fort Lauderdale has a special rate available for Funky Buddha Brewery guests. Please visit our booking portal to take advantage of it. The hotel will also run a shuttle to the event for guests.
Q: Where can we park?
A: You may park in the following lots:
