Funky Buddha Brewery (Oakland Park, Florida) has officially announced that Morning Wood, a breakfast-themed, barrel-aged Imperial Porter, will reappear for a limited time beginning on Saturday, October 12.
Created to prove that there is nothing “better than beer for breakfast,” Morning Wood is an imperialized version of Funky Buddha’s fan-favorite Maple Bacon Coffee Porter that has spent some time aging in High West Whiskey barrels. This treatment lends a “smoothness to [this Imperial Porter’s] smokey, salty, rich combo of maple syrup, fresh roasted coffee, and bacon-like flavor.” Coming in at an eye-opening 11.2% ABV, Morning Wood is “a true breakfast of champs.”
Morning Wood will officially release in the Tap Room at Funky Buddha Brewery on October 12 and is scheduled to enter distribution shortly after the on-site release. You can expect to find this Limited Release offering available in 22 oz. bottles and on draft at select craft beer-friendly establishments located in Florida and throughout the rest of the brewery’s distribution footprint. Prost!
