Today the Funky Buddha Brewery announced a partnership with Cigar City Brewing in Tampa to use their system to brew 1-2 beers. These beers will then be kegged at CCB and then distributed in South Florida to on premise accounts. This will help spread the name of Funky Buddha as they strive towards their goal of being a fully functional brewery in 2012. Here is the official press release from Funky Buddha.
We are excited to announce that 2012 will be a big year for the Funky Buddha Brewery. In just a few short months, March 2012, Funky Buddha Brewery will begin distribution of our beers. Many of you are shaking your heads and wondering how we are distributing on our modest 1.5 barrel system. Well, we’re not. One of the most amazing things that we have covet about this business is the generosity and overall feel of community in this industry. Cigar City Brewery has continued to strive to put Florida Beer on the map, and are allowing us to brew on their system. We are going to launch one, possibly two of our core brands as we plan for our full brewery expansion. Yes, that’s right…the Funky Buddha Brewery will be a full scale production brewery in South Florida in 2012! We would like to take this opportunity as 2011 comes to an end, to thank all of those who have supported and championed our growth and success. We really appreciate the support and encouragement! It’s because of our great customers, passionate bloggers, tweeters and friends that have helped spread the word and share the love. We truly thank you for your continued support. We are excited to have this opportunity to blog our experience and blog step by step of our growth with everyone. We will be updating this blog throughout this journey. We would like every one of you to share in the experience with us, because if it wasn’t for you, we wouldn’t be here. From the Funky Buddha Family to yours, have a Happy and Healthy New Year.
CHEERS to 2012!
