Located in a nondescript shopping center this place doesn’t look like much on the outside. Inside is another matter. It’s part hookah house, part tea room, part local dive bar. They had 8 of theirs on tap which usually range from good to best in style plus some good guest taps including a couple of a cigar City. The bartender seemed to know their beer though they spend just as much time preparing hookah pipes which are really popular here. It’s good to see a place with ambition beyond the typical chain-style brewpub.

Hookah bar. Chilled out. Hip. Relaxed. Fun. Low-key. Comfortable. Friendly. Good beers. Homemade humus. An oasis in the middle of the suburban Hell that is Boca Raton. Near Case and Keg. What’s not to like?

Funky is about right, a lush, urban, hip hookah bar with quite a few brews on tap, knowledgable service and some light food options. They had some interesting choices, but were also out of a few. I’ll be back.

Forgot to rate this, it seems! Was here in early January and found a surprisingly cozy atmosphere hidden behind the depressing façade of an upscale strip mall. People smoking shisha, eating sushi, sitting on cushions here and there with artwork featuring Buddha on every wall. Refreshingly different! The house beers we had were decent but nothing to write home about and the guest brews were fun too. I would definitely consider coming back here if I were to visit the area again, just because of the ambiance which makes you forget where you are exactly...

Located in a ratty strip mall in the crap part of Boca Raton. Visited soon after opening time (5pm) on a Monday. Despite the rough exterior, the interior is really nice, well designed with a large stage to the right, tables spread throughout the room, a couch and a couple of comfy chairs. The large bar is located at the end of the space, and the brewery and home brew shop are located next door. Overall, nice clean design. On draft they have 10-12 well chosen guest drafts, and 7 of their own brews on. A couple of the locals I drank with mentioned they generally have quite a few more of their own beers on, which is impressive. Solid music, though perhaps a touch loud at 5:15 for this old dude. The food was small pizzas and snacks. Hookah seemed like a real focus here, which detracted slightly when someone nearby was smoking. Service was great, beer quality was high. I really enjoyed my visit.

A cool bohemian 1980s haunt with home art, lots of buddhas, rock theme and bric a brac. Friendly service, good beers, but limited menu though. Great spot in Florida.

I hired a car from Miami airport on a stop-over and made the pilgrimage to Funky Buddha (about 1 hour drive). Inside it’s dark, laid-back and atmospheric. I pretty much stayed there from open to close! The bar staff were all brewers, so were particularly knowledgeable. They had 6 house-beers on tap (including Peach Berliner) and a well-chosen selection of guests (the Westbrook Gose was delicious). They do a sampler tray of all their beers for a reasonable price. They also have a comprehensive bottle selection, which includes things like BA Rasputin and Hopslam. Only minor disappointment is that they no longer fill growlers….. Still it was well worth the journey. A great brewpub.

Nice low key brewery with bar in the back. Nice low light and cool vibe. Had a stage and a bunch small tables. Sat at the bar and had the sampler a couple of special releases and all were great. Ordered the veggie quesadila and received the chicken one instead which was not very good. The beer more than made up for the food and that is what I came for anyway. Will definitely be back.

OK, be warned, this place is first and foremost a venue for events (entertainment) as it opened some 5 yrs ago as a small beer lounge with entertainment. It has only recently begun exploring brewing beer. So I was a bit shocked when we showed up and were told we needed to shell out $20ea for the entertainment (loud comedy acts) just to have the opportunity to buy and try to enjoy their beer. Well, I was shocked and pissed to tell you the truth. We were left with the option to sample the beer outside at table adjacent to the parking lot where we just walked by a throng of “too cool for school” types smokin’ it up like there’s no tomorrow or give up and go back to the hotel. So we gave it a try outside after being inside for a grand total of about 45 seconds. Once we finished our first round it took 45min to get another beer due to the ticketing and seating of the entertainment go-ers. So that kind of sucked. So clearly on nights where there is entertainment be prepared and keep in mind beer enjoyment is not a priority here. It is kind of sad really because their beer was down right amazing! Keep brewin’ and get some space for us beer geeks so we can enjoy your wares. Thx.
