The massive facility along the railroad tracks on Oakland Park Boulevard is South Florida’s landmark destination brewery. On weekends, you’ll find people packing the indoor space, lounging on their oversized chairs for daylong football marathons. Outside, it’s all fun, games, and families, and everyone of age generally appreciates Funky Buddha’s lineup of creative combinations and mildly hoppy options. The brewery also launched a brand new seltzer line this year, and it’s shaping up to be just as big a hit as its maltier cousin.
Beers to try: The Floridian citrus hefeweizen and the Hop Gun IPA are the cornerstones of Funky Buddha’s business, but the one that gets people lining up is the Maple Bacon Coffee Porter, whose release date is basically treated like a civic holiday.
