Today is the Winter Solstice, the longest night of the year, and to commemorate the first day of winter I thought I’d select a dark beer that just seemed appropriate for the Advent calendar: Funky Buddha Brewery‘s Last Snow Porter.
Perhaps a brewery from Florida isn’t the first thing that would spring to mind when thinking of winter holiday beers, but Funky Buddha—located on Florida’s east coast between Fort Lauderdale and Pompano Beach—has a number of unique and flavorful beers perfect for the cold weather. Last Snow is brewed with coffee and coconut to 6.4% alcohol by volume, and they say:
Last Snow Coconut & Coffee Porter is an ode to that special time in Florida where the needle dips just south of 75 – even for the briefest of moments. This rich, creamy porter is layered with coconut and freshly-roasted coffee for a taste that recalls a winter wonderland – even if, in our state, that’s just a state of mind.
It’s part of their Little Buddha Small Batch series and while much of the country has been experiencing first snow recently, crack open a bottle of Last Snow on this longest night. Happy Solstice!
