A new barrel-aged creation coming next month from Funky Buddha Brewery is inspired by a popular type of ice cream.
Bourbon Barrel-Aged Neapolitan Milk Porter is a 12.6 percent ABV imperial porter aged in bourbon barrels with cocoa nibs, strawberry juice and vanilla. A non-barrel-aged milk porter brewed with the same ingredients debuted as a draft-only option in 2014, but this is the first time either incarnation has been packaged in bottles.
Bourbon Barrel-Aged Neapolitan Porter will be the latest edition in Funky Buddha’s Living Barrel Series, which is made up of beers aged in various types of barrels and packaged in 22-ounce bottles and includes other other beers like Rum Barrel-Aged Tiramisu, Barrel-Aged Muy Bonita and The Love Below 2018.
In an email, Mitchell Wilkison, spokesperson for Funky Buddha, told Tenemu that Bourbon Barrel-Aged Neapolitan Porter will be packaged in 22-ounce bottles ($20) that are scheduled to be released exclusively at the brewery on Dec. 15 with a four bottle per person purchase limit.
