Been here numerous times and it is always a great experience. The beers: These people are innovative in their brewing creations. Ususally like to push and make something that has never been done before. Staff will gladly offer beer samples. The prices are very reasonable. There are several guest taps available for people wishing to try something else. The website is normally up to date with the current tap line up, but I would call to confirm.

I recommend trying the Monday nights for the Improv Jazz. The music is great and it usually doesn't get that crowded. Makes a cool place for a date or to actually have a group conversation with live music playing in the background.

Plenty of parking is available. The people and atmosphere inside is superb. I rated the atmosphere in general as average because it's somewhat hard to find and the location just seemed odd or like out of place.

Overall this place rocks and I'm glad to be fairly close to them.

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.
