Get Funky, Jacksonville and North Florida!
Funky Buddha is launching in the greater Jacksonville area on August 18th, as well as Gainesville, Tallahassee and the rest of North Florida on September 1. Funky Buddha draft and bottles will be available starting on those dates in retailers, restaurants, and bars throughout the area. Brown Distributing will be handling all sales and distribution, which will see Funky Buddha distributed statewide throughout Florida for the first time.
Brands available at launch will include Funky Buddha’s best-selling flagships Hop Gun IPA and Floridian Hefeweizen, as well as seasonal and limited releases such as Blueberry Cobbler and Last Snow (the later debuts on August 18th throughout the distribution footprint).
Funky Buddha will celebrate the launch with special events at partnering retailers. Please check out the Jacksonville launch lineup below for more information.
