I love this place. I have seen the place from the street and heard people talking about it so I went in. I was suprised to see that they had Great White on tap, among other DFHs, and also they had the 120 minute. Ideally, people grab a hookah and a nice beer and listen to the live music, standup comedy, or anyone on the mic. Ira, the owner is friendly and all of the waitstaff is too. They have a pretty nice beer menu and they are always willing to shoot you recommendations. If you are ever in Boca, check this place out

this is hands down one of the coolest breweries i have ever visited. the original home of funky buddha, a one barrel brewery, quite the contrast to the temple they built down south. this is a really great place to visit though, the vibe is incredible, lots of buddhist figures and other eastern art, dim lighting, comfortable seating areas all over the place, benches with throw pillows, red velvet feel everywhere, a small stage in the middle. its also a hookah cafe, so they have that whole vibe going on too, its just so small and different from what everyone else is doing with their taprooms, i loved it here, and could have stayed forever. they make some cool one off batches in here, we had a series of fruited berliners that were all very good, and a neat vanilla cream ale. they also have some notable guest taps and a fine bottle list. they have nowhere near the funky buddha beers that the big brewery does, but their selection overall is still very impressive. they do tea here too, and we even had a peach tea berliner that was wonderful. this is one of the most intimate breweries i have been in too, quiet, mellow as can be, small, and with some really friendly service. you would be a fool to not stop here if you like beer and are anywhere near here at all! a highlight of my recent florida trip for sure!

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.
