The Ten Best Beer Selections in South Florida

Thumbnail image for funky-buddha-lounge-best_beer_selection.jpeg
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.

3. Riverside Market Nothing but love for Total Wine & More, but sometimes, you just want to buy where everybody knows your name. Throw your beer budget to the local guy and you might just find widen your social circle even as you stock your fridge with an exceptional array of beers. This beloved neighborhood institution -- which also serves beer-friendly fare like sandwiches and pizza -- aims to make its band of loyal customers feel right at home. If, after browsing through the coolers holding no fewer than 500 beers, you still can't find what you're looking for, ask if they'll order it for you for future reference. Then, settle in and prepare to make friends with the other beer-loving locals.

How can you call this the ten best in South Florida and not include Miami-Dade County?

Coffee District is awesome. Definitely worthy of a top 2 position. Tell chong what type of beer you like and he will lead you right to some quality  beers that fit your taste..

I like the list, and I'm a Broward resident, but the title is a little misleading. "Best Beer Selections in South Florida?" I think you mean, "Best in Broward/Palm Beach", since you are not counting Miami-Dade County...

 @knmille7 Wasn't an easy task to narrow the list down to ten -- Mellow Mushroom, American Social, Original Fat Cats, Yardhouse, etc. all also have great selections.  Rest assured, Clean Plate Charlie has love for Tequesta Brewing Co.!
