4. Funky Buddha Lounge
Like the faces of some of the city's residents, the beer menu at this Boca bar is in a constant state of flux. Beers are rotated in and out with the seasons, but there's a consistency in the overall quality that comes from having a crew of bona fide beer lovers behind every decision. The bottle selection skews American craft but also boasts a strong showing from the Belgians and Trappists, in addition to rare imports. For those who prefer hyperlocal, try one of Funky Buddha's own microbrews, like the always-popular Hop Gun IPA and Red Dawn Red Ale. Or get adventurous with a fruit-, coffee-, or herb-infused brew.
