The newest incarnation of Funky Buddha Brewery’s popular barrel-aged “breakfast-inspired” porter is returning this weekend.
That beer is Morning Wood 2018, an 11.2 percent ABV imperial porter brewed with coffee, maple syrup and smoked salt before being aged in barrels that previously held High West whiskey.
Morning Wood is the barrel-aged version of Funky Buddha’s Wide Awake It’s Morning, which in turn is the imperial version of the brewery’s Maple Bacon Coffee Porter.
According to a post on Funky Buddha’s Instagram page, Morning Wood 2019 will be packaged in 22-ounce bottles and is scheduled to go on sale at the brewery on Oct. 12. In addition, the barrel-aged porter will begin shipping to retailers in “select Florida markets“ following the release at the brewery.
