Funky Buddha Brewery (Oakland Park, Florida) has officially announced that The Love Below, a Valentine’s Day-themed Double Barrel-aged Imperial Stout, will make a limited-time return beginning on Wednesday, February 6.
Brewed each February with inspiration sourced from “a great hip hop, double album”, The Love Below starts out as a batch of Funky Buddha’s Nikolai Vorlauf Imperial Stout that is split and “aged in luscious Cabernet barrels and bold Bourbon barrels for months.” Once its rest is complete, both barrel treatments are “then blended together along with real cherries and 100% chocolate” to produce a “thick and sultry” treat. Coming in at 12% ABV, The Love Below is at its best when ” consumed with a very special friend.”
The Love Below will officially release in Funky Buddha’s Tap Room on February 6 and is scheduled to enter distribution shortly after that date. You can expect to find this Limited Release available in 22 oz. bottles and on draft at select craft beer establishments located in Florida. Prost!
