I'm visiting the brewery from out of town. Can you recommend a hotel?

Yes! We have a corporate rate with the Courtyard by Marriott Fort Lauderdale East. In addition to a great price, this newly renovated hotel features a heated pool, free shuttle for travel to and from the brewery, complimentary breakfast and wi-fi, and Funky Buddha bottles available for purchase in the lobby bar! Book your room here.

Tickets will go onsale November 21st at 10am via IMG Tickets. For information on past releases, check out this page.

Where can I find your beers?

We currently distribute draft and bottled beer throughout the State of Florida. Check out our Beer Finder to see where our beers are sold.

Can I bring my kids or dogs to the brewery?

We believe a brewery -- and specifically our tap room -- is not just a bar, but a community hub. A place for people to congregate, meet, and enjoy the community atmosphere. As such, we are a family friendly establishment.

*Supervised children are permitted in the tap room from Noon to 8pm every day. After 8pm, you must be 21 or over to enter. Children are never permitted on tours or in the brewery itself

*Well-behaved dogs are welcome in the outside patio areas, including by the tracks, near our front planters, or under the clock tower. Please do not bring your dogs in the tap room. We reserve the right to ask poorly behaved animals to leave!

So the Funky Buddha Lounge still brews right?

Of course! Now that we’re brewing our flagship beers like Hop Gun and Floridian at Funky Buddha Brewery, the Lounge operates as a test kitchen of sorts. Our brewers use it to create experimental batches and new recipes, each served only on site! Check out the Lounge here.

What’s the difference between Funky Buddha Brewery and The Funky Buddha Lounge & Brewery?

We got our start at The Funky Buddha Lounge & Brewery. That’s our brewpub, where we also serve hookahs and craft beers from all over the world, and host live music. The Brewery is our manufacturing facility and tap room, located in Oakland Park, Florida. We distribute beers made at the Brewery all across Florida, but beers brewed at the Lounge are only served at the Lounge.

Do you guys bottle your beers for distribution?

Yes we do! We sell six-pack, 12oz bottles of our year-round beers as well as four-pack, 12oz bottles of our seasonal line of beers and 22oz bottles of our Little Buddha Small Batch series (with a new release each month). Bottles are available to go from the brewery, and at nearly ever major Florida retailer including Publix Supermarkets, Total Wine & More, Whole Foods Market, Fresh Market, ABC Fine Wine & Spirits, Trader Joe's, and much more. We are only available in the state of Florida this time - sorry, but due to Florida law we cannot ship beer directly to consumers!

You can also find Fuhgeddaboudit Red Ale - our collaborative brew with Anthony's Coal Fired Pizza - in New York and New Jersey ACFP locations.

I have a lot of growlers at home from other breweries. Will you guys fill them?

We’re proud to say that we fill only Funky Buddha Brewery growlers for two reasons. 

First, sanitation and cleanliness is important to us, especially with a glass bottle we’re going to put our beer in. Many people trade our growlers across the country, and an unsanitized growler that’s being shipped in the mail while not refrigerated is a recipe for spoilage. So, instead of cleaning and sanitizing growlers to order, we choose to swap your growler with an already cleaned and sanitized one when you come in. By doing this, we can ensure the quality of our beer in growlers will remain consistent. We think it’s worth the effort, and we hope our customers do to.
 
Second, our growler machine is calibrated to fill our glass, which is a certain height and size. Other size or shape bottles have not worked well on our filler in the past, and we really try to use this machine whenever possible since it provides an oxygen free fill of the best quality. 
 
We understand most people have a plethora of growlers so buying more is not always a great option. We are talking about how best to fill non-Funky Buddha growlers such as stainless steel and insulated ones that do preserve carbonation and temperature longer. Thank you for your understanding!
