Florida Beer: Funky Buddha Brewery's Past Year In Beer

Categories: Beer Beer Beer

The Funky Buddha Brewery team at this year's Extreme Beer Fest in Boston. Special guest Sam Calagione.
It's #FloridaBeerFriday. Every Friday, we take a look at a beer brewed in the Sunshine State, giving analysis to the burgeoning craft beer movement of Florida.

The Funky Buddha Brewery opened its doors last year in Oakland Park with their massive 40,000 sq-ft and 30 barrel facility.

Since then, the beers have poured out into the marketplace, and there are many local establishments that carry Funky Buddha beers on tap.

Over the last year, we've been highlighting beers produced in Florida, with a majority of them locally-produced, and many of the spotlights shone on Buddha beers. In lieu of their upcoming first year anniversary party, happening this Saturday at the Oakland Park location, we're going to look back at some of the beverages we've covered that were produced in Broward County.

Without further ado, our last year with the Funky Buddha Brewery. Click on a header to get the full review.

Floridian Hefeweizen
This is a true summertime beer. Strong scents of lemon and a slight clove/herb character bring you into the beer. The taste is fairly similar, but with bananas and a bit of yeasty character added in to the lemony wallop, giving it an almost dry citrus banana bread taste - minus all that sugar. There's light body, and a carbonation to match. It finishes with a lingering and complementing acidify.
