A very nice large new brewery that is built to serve. Huge bar, lots of seating and bright and airy. Service was great, even offering palate cleansing soda crackers. Beer is out of this world good. A great stop, definitely go out of you way for this place.

Have been happy to see FB evolve from a cool little hookah/craft beer bar in Boca to a nanobrewery and now to this production brewery in Broward, which is actually in a pretty central location all things considered. Also impressed with the way their beers have evolved and continue to evolve. Yes they do have some gimmicky flavored beers, but they are proving their merit with some solidly made straightforward beers too. The selection included beers from multiple styles, and with 21 on tap, there is bound to be something you’re in the mood for whether that’s a strong nightcap or an afternoon session beer like a Berliner or session IPA. Most of the beers are pretty good, some are better than good, and others are not to my taste, but that is to be expected with a lineup this large. The place itself has a lot to offer, it’s super laid back, has some outdoor seating on a front and side patio along the train tracks, which I think is cool. They even have some games to play out back like bocce. They show games on TV without creating a sports bar atmosphere, it’s kind of a bare bones college bar on the inside but that’s what makes it feel relaxed. Service tends to be attentive and friendly.There is usually a food truck out front but probably best not to count on eating here. Overall I really like this place and look forward to visiting again and again.

Came here a lot during my recent visit to FLL. They put a lot of beer on tap in this place, though special beers are usually held back for special events. They run those often enough, though, and I tracked down their top 50 impy stuff by following their Twitter. I like a lot of the Buddha beers and the session IPA hit the spot quite a bit during happy hour. They have outdoor seating, a food truck, and parking around the side. Somebody is opening a craft beer arcade across the stop. All in all, a top South Florida destination.

The taproom is located in what looks like a brand new brewery that still has plenty of room to expand capacity. Located a block from the city hall building, there’s a free parking lot across the street. The taproom is much larger than I expected with a patio area in front. They had 12 of theirs on tap with 5-6 guest taps. I got there later than I wanted which sucked because the last snow and the Floridian hefe were both fucking fantastic! The only caveat was the service which wasn’t terribly responsive or warm and fuzzy. But the place is new and they’re not yet used to be being really busy. If they keep making beer of the quality they’re going to be busy for a long time.

Visited early evening on a Thursday. Easy to find with a larger public parking big lot directly across the street. There was a food truck offering burgers out front. Upon entering, there is a large modern space featuring a huge bar, along with a handful of high top tables and few other tables and spots to sit and have a beer. Looks as though this is designed to handle large crowds. Larger patios spot out front. Beyond the bar is a view into the big new sparkly Brewery. On draft were 8 Funky Buddha beers and 7 guests. Sizes were pints, 12 oz, and 4 beer taster. Service was friendly, though a touch on the slow side. Definitely a varied crowd everyone chilling out digging the beers. Similar to the original Boca location, great spot to relax and have great beers.

88 = ★★★★ (best in area, a must for locals and visitors)

I only use the total score, not the component parts.

Visited for the MBCP release, which could have been a shitshow, but actually worked out pretty well. Hard to give a "regular review of the place, but the staff were working their asses off at the release, the beer was great, and the space was pretty solid as well. I hope to make it back for a more normal occasion sometime.

Visited during the evening on Wednesday January 21, 2015.
Got there by car, quite the drive up from Hollywood Beach (Ft Lauderdale), seemed to be some parking outside. Had great food from a food truck outside, but not rating it since I guess it is not part of the brewery. Had some 14 of their own beers on, plus some from CCB and Tequesta, total of 21 taps I think it was.
Their standard beers were good, but the others were more gimmicky than anything else.
Pretty big place with plenty of seating, also a long bar with plenty of servers working it. Nice fast service, no problem getting a tab running using your card. No problem getting 4 beer flights served with some small nuts (?) to clense your palate. Nice bathroom. Tried getting some bottles my the singles to bring back to Sweden, but only sold on premise in 6-packs.

Very enjoyable brewery just north of Ft. Lauderdale. Stopped there straight from the airport after escaping a snowstorm in NJ. This place was a nice respite from that travel adventure. Funky Buddha has a nice vibe with tables outside in addition to a very large tasting room with a very long bar. Eats are mostly via food trucks. The beers are the star here though. They generally seem to have a fairly large selection for a brewery tasting room where all the beers were made in house. It took about 2 1/2 flights to get thru all of them...a trip well worth taking with a wide variety of styles and flavor versions. Overall I would say the beers are quite good with a couple of exceptional ones. I highly recommend a visit here (note that the Boca location has a "totally" different vibe...try this location first if you are going for the craftbeer).

Visited here in late January ’14. High ceilings, big windows, - modern, slightly industrial feel to it, Plenty of space - love the "cartoon’ on the wall of the brewing process - the place just had a great vibe to it. Have about 8 or so of their normal rotation and about a dozen or so of specials and seasonals, plus a few guest taps. Servers are friendly, attentive and knowledgeable, The beer, of course was superb. If I lived in South Florida - this would be a regular stop. Highly recommended if anywhere near. Food trucks outside if interested,
