In town for work and the only chance I would have to get to the Buddha would be late on my final night. I show up a little after 1am on a Monday and am pleased to see about 20 other people and live funky little band, kick ass. I sit at bar and order a flight of brews the bartender is efficient but borderline mean but she’s sexy enough that I don’t care. Beers are decent and the vibe is cool. i would definitely hang here more often if i lived closer. You can also enjoy some hookah or a wide selections of teas, something for everyone.
This place is great. The atmosphere is laid back but inviting with entertainment on a nightly basis. The staff is knowledgeable and very friendly. I think we all know that the beers are awesome. Plus, they have a nice selection of interesting guest taps and bottles to chose from, as well as mixed drinks and wine if that’s your thing. The food is meh, but it beats the hell out of anywhere that doesn’t have food, right? Overall this place is great for anyone who enjoys beer and fun. A must visit in the area.
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.
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.
Stopped by Boca Raton for a night en route to Miami for a cruise. My hotel was directly across from the lounge. The lighting seemed very dreary when I entered, not conducive to rating. Its a hookah bar so the aroma was of tobacco and very mellowing. All the bar stools were full, so I sat at a table. After being ignored for 15 mins I decided to stand at the end of the bar to get a beer. However a couple a few minutes later sat at a far table and one of the servers went to them to take their order. A plus was their two for one happy hour beers. Their beers seemed pretty well done and solid, but the lounge really wasn’t what I expected from previous ratings.
I love almost every beer this brewery puts out. I try to make it up here at least once a month whenever they tap one of their limited release kegs. They also have a great guest tap list on top of their 8 or so FB taps. This place is really worth the trip.
Great food though limited in choices. It’s offerings taste great. The beer is unreal. I have to admit I love what they brew, and this trip has allowed me to enjoy many more of their great offerings. I wish I lived closer so I could constantly taste their offerings. They have such depth in respect to their creativity that the complexity of their product seems to constantly evolve in new ways.
A quick visit while ladies were shopping at Sawgrass Mills. Definately worth the drive. Very ambient, different, love the interior. Good music, not too loud. Beers I had were very nice, too bad they had only 6 house beers on draft, wanted to have a go to their other beers, too. Recommended place to visit.
Nice atmosphere, friendly staff and patrons. The beer brewed on premises is pretty good including the novelty ones, but one was either past it’s prime or the tap line was not cleaned well. The prices are a bit high and the selection of guest brews was kind of uninspiring. I have to say this, if you’re a brewpub and you have a fair bunch of beers that you rotate in and out, you should have at least one heavyweight available at any time. Piiti Porter doesn’t count as heavyweight.
Meh, won’t be back. Their average line is subpar. They’re beers worth growlering they dont sell as growlers. The gimmick beers are very well done however. Oh and the hipster scene blows. There was also a bad taste of dirty tap lines, probably the biggest mistake ever.

This place is super hyped among beer geeks in the last year. The Maple Bacon Smoked Porter was bad ass and deserves the props it has received. The happy hour is 5-7 and you will pretty much pay 2.50 a beer. Bad ass, but really, some of their beers are completely subpar, with a bigtime diacetyl off taste prevalent in a lot of their offerings. Super friendly owner poured me a few samples of newish stuff...bonus points!! A cool place to visit when in the area, but not really a world class destination.
