I am always ready to try a new place and one with a cereal flavored beer, I could not resist.
According to www.funkybuddhabrewery.com, Ryan Sentz is the owner and operator of the Funky Buddha. The original brewery opened in 2007 in Boca Raton, Florida. This massive brewery has become the darling of Fort Lauderdale for a number of reasons-food trucks, brewery tours, family friendly, big screens, and board games.
My visit there was fun and tasty, I will be back. I noshed on Palate Party , http://palateparty.com, truffle fries and crab cakes, and sipped on Lemongrass beer. There is no inside kitchen, but there are food trucks a plenty.

You can get a sampler, called a Flight, for $9.00 if you are not sure of what beer you want. The flight has four glasses of 4.5 oz. samples (you can choose the beers).
