Finally I made a stop to the funky buddha, I have been meaning to stop here for quite some time. The moment I walked into the place I could not believe how small it was. We had a party of six and it felt like we were just cramped in the place. The atmosphere is pretty trippy with nice tones of red and is set up nice for as small as it is. The service was pretty good, the waitress knew somewhat about beer and suggested what we could try. Prior to this I knew what I wanted some Fat Dog on draft and I knew they had it there. The bottle section is pretty nice you won't find the big guys here which I thought is pretty amazing, nice draft selection and some nice rare items like rogue 05 imperial pilsner. Also I didn't get to sample the hooka goodness but I sure did smell the nice toasted and roasted flavors coming from them and man did they smell amazing. Overall this is a pretty nice stop with the great beer offerings and the live entertainment, you get over the crammped feeling after you look at the beer menu.

This is where it all started, if you love the brewery in Oakland Park a stop at the lounge should peak your interest. The lounge often has some common FB beers on tap as well as some that exclusive to the lounge, also they have a a lot of special guest taps as well. Some beers may taste a little different than the large brewery since everything is brewed in smaller batches here. Lately the lounge has gone down hill a little bit, not as much consistency with the beers and they occasionally have an off batch. This location often has performances and different events, it can be very loud and cover charges are common. If you are looking for a quieter experience at no charge they open their homebrew shop next door which has couches and tables, but you can still get all the same beer.

Bohemian stoner-den coffeehouse vibe in a strip mall. Great selection of their own beers, guest taps, and bottles. I had a flight of Funky Buddha beers. All of the beers seemed a bit soft in texture, less co2, but made up for this in flavor. Coffees, teas, and fancy sodas available too. Will definitely go back.

It took a very long time for us to get beers even though there was hardly anyone at the bar. Don't expect good service if you're sitting on the non-music side.
