Honestly, one of my favorite places in the world and probably the main reason why I was absorbed into the craft scene. These guys really do make some great stuff. Great atmosphere, I love hanging out here.

I have tasted much epicness, far and wide now and I just cant seem to understand why they seem to be so underrated. I have no idea why people do not mention something like Last Buffalo or Morning Wood in the same sentence as Hunahpu.

Lots to chose from style wise, and FB always has several new beers on tap. Flights available and 32 and 64 oz crow let's and growlers to go. Large indoor seating area, large bar too. Plenty of parking in public (free) lot across the street. The vibe is cool with lots of friendly people at the bar. Very good pub grub style food. Sometimes the service is great, and sometimes the bartenders disappear/wait on their friends and/or co/workers...nevertheless a great place to chill and drink some mighty fine beer.

Awesome brewery!. Great vibe and fun people. The service was good, the bartenders were friendly and knowledgable and let you try any beer sample. The food was excellent and cheap....2 large tacos and a beer for $10.
They have outdoor seating, lots of indoor seating and bean bag Todd on the back. We had a blast. Can't wait to go back!

True to its names, strong hints of toasted tice with marshmallow frangrance.

They've done a great job with their expansion at Funky Buddha to make this spot friendly for anything from a quick pop in to an all day affair. A cavernous taproom with eclectic seating options ranging from cozy library couches to traditional wooden benches. Service, at times, can be a little slow. They have all sorts of giant jenga, cornhole, and arcade games in the second room to keep you entertained as you sip your beers. They usually have something special on tap and their beer releases are extremely efficient and well-organized.

This place just keeps getting better and better. A lot of there beers are very similar; sweet adjunct porters, but they are generally very good to world class. I wish their IPAs were on the level of their porters, but you know what you're in for with FB. The food counter was a great addition, and everything I've had was delicious.

what an amazing place, it almost feels like the epicenter of florida craft beer that it is, a huge expansive taproom, but made very comfortable with little congregating areas, comfy furniture in small groups, a mix of tables of all sizes, a nice patio out front, a game room in the back, full view of the brew house, and a massive bar with one of the largest selections i have ever seen at a brewery. we picked a long table and hunkered down for an entire afternoon. i was impressed on so many levels! the beer list is enormous, two sided beer menu is needed to list all the offerings, and a lot of them are intriguing and strong! i got a little snookered in here to be honest, drinking beer after beer over 10% abv, but thats half the fun of it right? world class beers included the im so excited, im so scared coffee stout, the neapolitan porter, a barrel aged wild barleywine, and a passion fruit gose. just amazing. the service was fine, a team effort it seems like at the tap room, all were prompt and competent, but we didnt get a lot of personality from anyone, which was odd in a place so otherwise full of it. the food here is great too, apparently a new addition to the experience there. we had an amazing meat and cheese board and some great wings and sandwiches too, all of it was excellent. they have bottles to go as well, and more beers than you can possibly drink in a single visit. we had a fantastic time trying though. this will absolutely be on my list to visit again when i make it back to this part of florida. amazing overall experience!

I went for the bottle release for Last Buffalo In The Park.The line was long,but that is to be expected.The employees where very friendly,and very helpful.I had a Last Snow from the tap,and it was AMAZING!!!And I usually HATE coconut.Unfortunately I didn't get a chance to try any of their food,but the dishes on the menu sounded delicious.The only complaint I would have against the vibe is alot of sketchy patrons...But that is no fault of the brewery...Overall it was a great experience,nice setup,lots of cool decor,and most of all....GREAT BEER!!!.

This place is surprisingly huge! There's a massive bar area, a games area, a separate kitchen (ordering at the kitchen is a little strange), outside seating, and then the brewery itself.

The menu is very small, but the food I had was very, very good. The tap list includes one guest tap and a great lineup of Funky Buddha beers, from mainstays to more limited releases. Some, but not all, of the beers are available as growler fills. Flights are available. There is a merch shop that also sells bottles, as well, including special releases.

Many of Funky Buddha's beers are very sweet, and lean toward the gimmicky side. However, they are expertly executed. When they aim to take on a specific profile, they nail it.
