This is a place I wish I had a lot more time to hang out at. I was in Boca for a day but didnít have lots of free time at night. I did drop by for a beer. Unique vibe, dim lighting, and plenty of seating, whether that be sofas, chairs, or a bar stool. I did not go when there was a comedy or musician act going so the place was pretty tame... a few groups of people relaxing around and 3 or 4 people at the bar. Iíd love to try more of their beer. They had probably 6 or 7 of their own on tap with some nice guest taps, including Cigar City, as well as some pretty good bottle choices. Bought one of their cool snifters too. I did not try any food so canít comment on that. Next time Iím in Boca (whenever that is) I will definitely go back here.

Nice dive bar feel. Too much hookah though. Good selection at fair prices with friendly service.

Located in a nondescript shopping center this place doesnít look like much on the outside. Inside is another matter. Itís 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. Itís good to see a place with ambition beyond the typical chain-style brewpub.

This is a fun place to visit... and great place to see a show. Beer selection is hit or miss on variety. They do have guest beers I appreciate that. Food is average... cool place beer brewed in small batch.

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.

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

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

The Funky Buddha has been my local watering hole for three years now. They make tremendous beers and sell a number of guest taps and bottles. They have very little turnover of bartenders so it is nice to walk in and see familiar, friendly faces. The crowd tends to also be younger and craft beer lovers. Ambiance is...well....Funky! It is dark with lots of artwork, tapestries, etc. They do live music/performance so there is a stage in the middle. Food...not so much. It is mostly frozen stuff and light snacks. I love the Buddha.

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.

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 sheís sexy enough that I donít 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 thatís your thing. The food is meh, but it beats the hell out of anywhere that doesnít 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 itís 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 growlersÖ.. Still it was well worth the journey. A great brewpub.
