Fans of lemon meringue pie are going to be very happy with Funky Buddha Brewery’s newest bottle release.
The beer is Lemon Meringue Pie, a 5 percent ABV “quaffable blonde ale” that is brewed with pilsner malt, “a touch of wheat”, vanilla and lemon. The ale was released on draft buy the Oakland Park, Fla.-based brewery earlier this year.
This is not the first time that Funky Buddha has brewed a beer that incorporates flavors of lemon meringue pie, as it released Lemon Meringue Berliner (4.5 percent ABV) for the first time on draft in 2011.
According to a post on Funky Buddha’s website, Lemon Meringue Pie will be packaged in 22-ounce bottles ($7) and will have no purchase limit when they go on sale at the brewery on May 24. In addition, bottles of Lemon Meringue Pie will be shipped to retailers in Funky Buddha’s distribution footprint shortly after the brewery release.
