I first visited the Funky Buddah in late 2009 before they moved into their current location which now services as a lounge, brewery and homebrew supply shop. I've been back many times since and it has grown to be my very favorite local spot for good beer and good times. Ryan, Kevin, Giani and all the supporting staff are wonderful, friendly, inviting and accomodating people who always make sure you have a full glass and full smile. They always have several of their own brews on tap along with a few guest taps, which have ranged anywhere from the standards (Magic Hat #9, Naragansett Lager) to full-blown tap takeover events, such as the one held by Cigar City Brewing recently. Funky Buddah's own brews are always phenomenal, and some of their specialty ones have found them nationwide notoriety, such as Maple Bacon Coffee Porter and No Crusts PB&J ale. The atmosphere is the most comfortable I've found as far as beer bars go. There are plenty of tables, both inside and outside, and even a few couches and large, comfy chairs. Things can get a little crowded during some of their bigger beer events or concerts, but you can usually grab a seat in the equally comfortable homebrew shop next door and avoid paying a cover for a show if you're just there for the beer. The only complaint I would have is that whenever there is a musical act on stage, it seems like the speaker volume is WAY too high. I find myself unable to hear the person talking right in front of me, and we usually adjourn our drinking to the outside tables or homebrew shop if it's open. Other than that, I absolutely love the Funky Buddha. I'm a proud member of their Snifter Club and they always come up with new and exciting beers, like the Bonita Applebum apple pie ale. I have also attended one of their homebrew classes and plan to buy all my homebrew equipment and ingredients there. Prices are always fair, especially for club members who get specials on Buddha brews and extended happy hour. To be honest, this place makes me wish I were single so I could spend more time there and not feel guilty!

The Funky Buddha creates quality craft brews with an awesome laid back atmosphere. I have lived behind the Brewery and Lounge every since it opened when it was just a hookah lounge. Funky Buddha has made a name for themselves and it has clearly made a lasting impression on the beer world. Funky Buddha makes amazing crafts beers that are truly one of a kind. The beers like their Last Snow White Chocolate Coconut Coffee Porter are some of the most unique crafts i have ever come across and they leave you always wanting more. The atmosphere is that of a coffee shop in Amsterdam. If you live in South Florida and are into the craft beer scene then i am sure you are aware of the product Funky Buddha puts out. If you are a lucky enough to be a local then you can become a member of their 18oz Snifter club and enjoy larger pours for the same price. Funky Buddha happy hour is great with discounted Funky Buddha Drafts from 5-7pm or 8pm if you are a Snifter Member.
