Beer Tap List
Floridian Hefeweizen: Our unfiltered and refreshing German-style wheat beer is full on flavor yet light on the palate. Authentic hefeweizen yeast creates the compelling aromas of bananas, citrus, and cloves, while the all wheat and malt body perfectly captures the brilliance of a golden Florida sunset. 5.2% ABV
Buddhafest Marzen: We're celebrating Oktoberfest with a true German festbier! Our Oktoberfest Marzen is brewed with Munich malts for a deep amber color and a bready flavor that makes it the perfect compliment to German food. 6% ABV
Jaco Pilsner: Our Pilsner is a light, crisp lager brewed with pilsner malts and a healthy heaping of Northern Brewer hops adding a herbal, wood and peppery aroma. This beer was crafted in honor of Oakland Park's Oktoberfest at beautiful Jaco Pastorius Park. Prost! 5% ABV
Hop Gun IPA: If you’re looking for hops, we’ve got your tail. Hop Gun IPA delivers a payload of good ol’ American hops straight to your palate, bursting forth with the flavors of grapefruit and pineapple. A careful dose of smooth caramel malts swoop in to balance out the finish — just like any good wingman should. ABV 7%
Last Snow Coconut & Coffee Porter: Last Snow is an ode to that special time in Florida where the needle dips just south of 75 - even for the briefest of moments. This rich, creamy porter is layered with coconut and freshly-roasted coffee for a taste that recalls a winter wonderland - even if, in our state, that's just a state of mind. 6.3% ABV (only available in 12oz pour)
Funky Buddha Craft Food Counter and Kitchen Oktoberfest Food Menu
