Beer: Funky Buddha Vanilla OP Porter

Style: Porter with vanilla

Alcohol: 6.3 percent by volume

Price: About $6 for a draft pour at Funky Buddha Brewery

Story: Available for a limited time starting Thursday at the brewery’s Oakland Park taproom, Vanilla OP Porter is a twist on Funky Buddha’s roasty, malty year-round porter that’s brewed with lactose for a smooth, creamy feel in the mouth. An addition of vanilla gives it a Little Debbie’s Swiss Roll flavor.

Pairing: While a vanilla porter is an easy pairing with sweets, savory foods also benefit from the brew’s bitter sweetness. Vanilla OP Porter is an ideal match for a brie and ham mini cupcake from the Batter Co. Cupcake food truck, parked outside Funky Buddha most Friday evenings.
