For anyone interested in seeing more locally brewed beer options in Pensacola, the wait may soon be over. We have just learned that Funky Skunk Brewing, a new nano-brewery based in Pensacola, is in early stages of development.
From the Funky Skunk's Facebook page:
Our mission is to brew beers that are uniquely different, great tasting and Funky in their own ways. Our beers are brewed so that everyone from a beer novice, all the way to a seasoned aficionado will enjoy.
They have already announced their planned brew lineup for 2013:
- Red Dawn Amber Ale
- Liberty APA
- Aztec Cerveza
- Port O'Call
If you're curious about Funky Skunk beers, a tasting is tentatively scheduled for late March / early April. We look forward to hearing more about this welcome addition to the Pensacola craft beer community. You can follow their progress on both Facebook and Twitter.
