Craft beer started out small. But South Florida's Ryan Sentz helped put it on the national map. Ryan, who now lives in Parkland, FL, is the co-founder of Funky Buddha, and the creative taste genius behind the craft beer named "Maple Bacon Coffee Porter."
"Maple Bacon Coffee Porter?"
You've got to be kidding
That flavor was so popular it earned Funky Buddha a presence at the nation's top beer festivals--even when the company was housed in a small lounge of that name in Delray Beach. Today the Ryan runs a major brewery and lounge under the Funky Buddha name in Oakland, Park. FL, although the brand was acquired by Constellation Brands a few years ago.

Every writer has a number of favorite topics or subjects. For me, that original focus as a freelance writer has been on business and industry because these fields are linked to economic development. I embraced these subjects after living abroad because of my belief that economic development is the key to a more peaceful world.
