The Best South Florida Brewpubs

Cheers to craft beers.
South Florida came late to the microbrewery trend, but we've got a fine array of local brewpubs. Skip the commercial brew and hit one of these local restaurants that feature taps of house-made beers.

Brewzzi

With two locations in West Palm Beach County, Brewzzi is the spot to watch sports, dish on Italian-American grub, and sip homebrews. The restaurants' Boca Blonde and City Fest are among the most popular and have snagged national beer awards. Lunch and dinner feature huge portions, and happy hour offers discounted drinks.

Big Bear Brewing Co.

Not all bars offer native brews on tap. At this locally owned restaurant and brewpub, patrons can find seven house-brewed beers on draft, such as the Grizzly Red Ale and the Kodiac Belgian Dubbel. The award-winning brewmasters change the rotation frequently, keeping the microbatches fresh and intense with flavor. Opened in 1997 and known for its generous portions of comfort food, Big Bear offers tours of the brewery by reservation.

Funky Buddha Lounge

It's hard to find a more eclectic and exciting joint with its own homebrew. On any given night, you might find a comedy show, a touring band onstage, or a tap takeover by another brewery. The Buddha sells 110 different beers from everywhere. But there's little reason to order those shipped-in beers when the place brews up the likes of the Floridian Hefeweizen, Passionfruit Wheat, and the Don't Tell Reese chocolate/peanut butter brown ale.

Organic Brewery

Last year, the Hollywood Broadwalk became home to this German-inspired eatery, which boasts organic beer brewing on-site. The recipes follow the traditional German and Austrian way of stouts, pale ales, lagers, and bocks. For optimal taste, the microbrews are served in serious glassware that's associated with each beer style. Aside from the crafted seasonal brews and German fare, there's also ample people-watching on the beachside terrace.
