Seriouly, am I still in South Florida, what? This place is a diamond in the rough, by far the best beer in south Florida. They get it here. You have to stop if you are anywhere near, and go out of your way if you are not.
So I tried this Maple Bacon Coffee Porter beer they had, and it was freakin awesome! Would be great for breakfast, right? The Vanilla Expresso Piiti Porter was right on, as well.
The staff was very friendly and accommodating, even to my not so BA uncle. Missionary (not too exotic) Ale for him.
It is a hookah bar, but don't expect to smoke anything else in here (cigar or cigarette go outside).
The space is really cool, but not over the top, or trying too hard, just right. I am very glad to have found this establishment, and look foward to many more visits.

Came here withthe wife on our way down to the Florida Keys.
Located in crappy strip mall setting, the exterior was underwhelming and definitely not what I expected. Open the door and you are magically taken to hipster town. Nice atmosphere with a stage for live music.
Service at the bar was good, one of the new brewers waited on us and shared much about the different beers and told us about other breweries in the area.
Beer was solid, we tried so of the berliner varieties which were our favorite, but sadly MBCS not here all the time like it should be.
Prices were fair, I think $8 for sampler and 5$ for pint.
Great experience, will stop by again. We missed wide awake by one day!

The best beers around, period. Seriously people, I will try anything the Buddha makes, including the Berliner Weiss that I am not a fan of, some of theirs I have enjoyed. Founders member for the new production brewery opening soon, its been amazing seeing them grow from the beginning to where they are now. MY FAVORITE BEERS AND MY FAVORITE BEER BAR!

Visited on a Monday during the tail end of Happy Hour. Should begin that I was very skeptical of this highly hyped place at the outset.
Located in a past-its-prime ugly strip mall off a busy road. Few tables outside - who the hell would ever sit there?
Neat looking hipster joint on the inside. Large stage to the right, collection of couches, tables, high back chairs, etc. Comfy. Friend & I sat down & waited for service...& waited...& waited...even though only a few other folks there. Finally took matters into my own hands & went to the bar myself to order some beers. More waiting while the barkeep tended to various duties
1st up was the Hefe - meh. On par with a Widmer Hefe...drinkable with no obvious flaws but forgettable. Ok maybe the next beer, a Porter, will cheer me up.
Porter was a 1 trick pony with just a roast flavor & no depth or character. Why do I hear about people in NYC & Philly lining up & geeking out over this brewery? Aha - they have an IPA on tap....that must be the star of the show.
As it turns oh the IPA was the biggest train wreck of all. Loaded with Diacetyl & virtually no hop presence whatsoever. I might say it was just an "off" batch but seeing how other basic styles weren't show stoppers, its probably par for the course. Perhaps FB can only brew beer with bacon & pineapple to mask brewing faults?
Split a hookah with my friend which was enjoyable, but wasn't willing to drink any other FB beers.
