It's Maple Bacon Coffee Porter time again. The Broward-based Funky Buddha Brewery has set the date for its most sought-after annual release and street festival for January 9.

But before you mark your calendars, there are a few changes to the 2016 event you should know about. And record another date: November 23, the day Maple Bacon Coffee Porter fest tickets go on sale.

Due to its overwhelming popularity, Maple Bacon Coffee Porter Day is now a ticketed event, says Funky Buddha Brand Manager John Linn. While that might sound less appealing than free access, it's actually good news: Paying attendees are now guaranteed to receive a bottle of the one-time annual Maple Bacon Coffee porter release — and no one will feel the need to camp out in the parking lot at 5 a.m. to snag a spot in line for tickets.
