Funky Buddha Brewery Continues Mixology Series with Summer Release of Margarita Gose

margaritawebmockupdatedFunky Buddha Brewery (Oakland Park, Florida) has officially announced that Margarita Gose will launch in late April as the next release in the brewery’s newly-established Mixology Series.

Just as its incredibly straight-forward name suggests, Margarita Gose is “a traditional, tart wheat ale” that has been brewed real agave nectar, lime juice, and sea salt . . . to capture the essence of a classic margarita recipe and achieve a heightened ABV.”  The beer was then aged “inside Casa Noble Anejo Tequila barrels for notes of charred oak and a smooth booze finish.”  Despite coming in at a sizeable 11% ABV, Margarita Gose remains a slow-sipping refresher that can be enjoyed all summer long.

Margarita Gose will officially debut in Funky Buddha’s Tap Room on April 27 and will enter distribution shortly after the on-site release.  You can expect to find this Limited Release offering available in 4-packs of 12 oz. bottles and on draft at select craft beer-friendly establishments located throughout the state of Florida.  Prost!
