Just two days after the Atlanta Falcons ended the Carolina Panthers’ unbeaten streak, Funky Buddha Brewery is rereleasing a beer to honor the only perfect team in National Football League history.
The beer is Undefeated Saison, a 7.7 percent ABV sasion brewed with grape must and champagne yeast. Although the same beer was first released in October 2014 after the last two teams with a perfect record lost their first games, that version came in at a slightly lower 6.2 percent ABV.
“This beer is our ode to greatness: In the summer of 1972, Miami’s own pro football team began a campaign of perfection that no other organization had ever achieved – or has ever matched,” says a press release. “The story goes that each year, after the last of the undefeated pro football teams falls, members of the 1972 squad all raise a glass of bubbly in unison to toast their still-unmatched achievement. We sought to create a beer suitable for that legendary and oft-discussed toast.”
According to the press release, Undefeated Saison will be packaged in 750ml bottles ($14) and will be limited to two bottles per person when it goes on sale tonight at the Oakland Park, Fla.-based brewery.
