There are some places you visit that surprise you in ways you didn’t think were possible. They leave you wanting more. Greater Fort Lauderdale is one of those places. This Southern Florida area – made up of cities including Fort Lauderdale, Hollywood, and Wilton Manors, among others – is the next big travel destination.
After cleaning up from a morning at sea, head to Funky Buddha Brewery to have lunch and a tour. Obviously I’m going to be a fan of anything that has the name “Funky” in it! This spot is known for producing bold craft beers that marry culinary-inspired ingredients. It is the largest craft brewery in South Florida.
When you’re there make sure you try their famous Maple Bacon Coffee Porter. It is breakfast in a glass. You’ll taste smoky/salty bacon, rich and sweet maple syrup, and roasted coffee. This beer put Funky Buddha Brewery on the map and almost overnight it was traded across the world becoming the number one rated porter on Beer Advocate. This launched the brewery to #27 on the list of the best in the world!
