KC and Ryan Sentz’s brewery, hugging the FEC tracks in Oakland Park since 2013, has borrowed from the Willy Wonka handbook of craft-beer wizardry. The Maple Bacon Coffee Porter (the brewery throws a festival in its name every January) is a glass of breakfast, with its syrupy blend of malt, toffee, maple syrup and salted chocolate. Not all Funky beers are sugary — their Hop Gun IPA is bitter and hoppy, for example — but most taste like dessert. Butta Cup, a newly bottled release, tastes like a liquid chocolate peanut-butter cup, while another winter beer, Last Snow, tastes like a liquid Mounds bar. Even sweeter? The recent arrival of Craft Beer Counter and Kitchen, the brewery’s Southern pub grub spot, and the usual brewery diversions of cornhole and giant Jenga.
