Funky Buddha Brewery (Oakland Park, Florida) has officially announced that it will release No Crusts Peanut Butter & Jelly Brown Ale for the first time ever in 4-packs of 12 oz. bottles on National Peanut Butter & Jelly Day – Monday, April 2.
Inspired by a lunchtime meal shared between Funky Buddha’s head brewer and founder, Ryan Sentz, and his daughter, No Crusts captures the youthful delight that is a PB&J in “a bready brown ale that sandwiches the aroma of creamy peanut butter with a fruity finish reminiscent of mixed berry jam.” Clocking in at 6.4% ABV, this adult take on the PB&J guarantees that “one taste will envelop you in waves of nostalgic flavor.”
No Crusts will officially begin its release in Funky Buddha’s Tap Room on April 2 at 11:30 a.m. Distribution will follow shortly after the brewery launch. Once fully released, you can expect to find this Core offering available for a limited time in 4-packs of 12 oz. bottles and on draft at select craft beer establishments located in Florida and throughout the rest of Funky Buddha’s steadily expanding distribution footprint.

Fun Fact – Concerning the recipe development for No Crusts: “Funky Buddha’s head brewer and founder, Ryan Sentz, was inspired by lunchtime with his daughter to brew a pb&j beer that tastes just like the real thing. Ryan tried 30 or 40 different recipes, using different methods before he found the perfect combination. After nailing the recipe, he brought the brew across the country to many different beer festivals. People were blown away by the redolent flavor and were instantly hooked on the juice. This year Funky Buddha took home a silver medal at the Great American Beer Festival for this mind-blowing beer.”
