Funky Monky

Mead with Cherry and Hops

What began as a happy little accident back in 2011, we figured we would give this another try and really attempt to capture the inspiration from the Belgian Cherry Lambic beers that we love. So we began the journey, we tasted, we tweaked, and we found that with the help of Shannon from Pure Brews America the final link had been found to make Imperial Funky Monky return for YOU. Next time, and yes, there will be a next time, we will be bringing it into the Funk Lab.
