Funkwerks, Inc., is a small, saison-focused brewery in Fort Collins, Colorado. It was named Small Brewery of the Year at the 2012 Great American Beer Festival. Its signature Saison took gold at the same event after having won silver the year before. If you’re lucky enough to live in one of the few states in which Funkwerks’ beers are distributed, you already know just how good Tropic King imperial saison is. Cofounder and Co-owner Gordon Schuck was kind enough to provide us a homebrew-sized recipe.
