Funky Buddha Brewery (Oakland Park, Florida) has officially announced that it will host a bottle release event for Bourbon Barrel-Aged Save Some Room For Later on Saturday, September 15.
Arriving as the latest selection to come out of Funky Buddha’s Living Barrel Series, Bourbon Barrel-Aged Save Some Room For Later starts its journey as a German chocolate cake-inspired Double Brown Ale that boasts “layers of creamy chocolate, sweet coconut, and fragrant vanilla” (a.k.a. the same Save Some Room For Later that saw a wide release earlier this month). That decadent base beer is then transferred from the brewery’s “chocolate cake room to a bold Bourbon barrel” so that it can pick up “subtle oak undertones for a smooth and boozy finish.” The completed Bourbon Barrel-Aged Save Some Room For Later weighs in at a hefty 10.5% ABV and 40 IBUs.
A bottle release for Bourbon Barrel-Aged Save Some Room For Later will be held in Funky Buddha’s Tap Room on Saturday, September 15. This Limited Release will be available in 22 oz. bottles with bottle limits set at six (6) per person during the release event. Bourbon Barrel-Aged Save Some Room For Later will be available exclusively in the brewery’s tap room and distribution is not expected (aside from special events). Prost!
