The 1972 Miami Dolphins are still the only team to go through an entire NFL season, Super Bowl and all, undefeated. Legend has it that every year the members of that 1972 team toast a glass of champagne when the last undefeated team of the current season loses to celebrate their continued reign as the only perfect team. And even though the myth has been debunked, it’s definitely the kind of folklore you don’t want to ruin with the truth.
In tribute to that team,[sic] Funky Buddha has started brewing a beer called “Undefeated Saison” – a saison brewed with Champagne yeast that, fittingly, the brewery decided it wouldn’t release this year until the final undefeated NFL team fell. Well, since the now 14-1 Carolina Panthers lost to the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday, Funky Buddha announced that Undefeated Saison will be available at the brewery starting tomorrow.
