Florida’s craft brewery, Funky Buddha Brewery, is in the midst of celebrating a decade of funkin’ things up in the craft brewing industry. 

To commemorate the past 10 years, Funky Buddha co-owners and brothers KC and Ryan Sentz have crafted three new specialty brews set to be released during their anniversary, along with 10 days of events leading up to the brewery's official anniversary celebration.

This week, the decade-old brewery is also hosting an epic 10-day celebration with special events leading up to an unforgettable brewery bash on June 10, with a specialty draft lineup, live music, bottle releases, and more.

Funky Buddha Lounge & Brewery was founded in 2010 in Boca Raton by husband-and-wife Ryan and Giani Sentz. Ryan’s brother KC and his wife Melissa joined the business as demand for their beers grew. Tired of the standard beer offerings, they took matters into their own brewhouse, whipping up unconventional-yet-exceptional ales. 

In 2013, the Funky Buddha Taproom and full-scale production brewery opened in Oakland Park, the first of its kind in Broward County. They are still Funkin’ up the industry a decade later, crafting unique libations from the confines of their Oakland Park, Florida headquarters. Funky Buddha products are currently available at bars, restaurants, and retailers across the state.

Although the festivities officially kicked off last week, there's still plenty going on leading up until the big bash taking place this coming weekend. The 10-Year Anniversary Party will take place on Saturday, June 10, at the Funky Buddha taproom located 1201 NE 38th St Oakland Park. The day-long event will offer live music hosted in the Barrel Room from 1 to 6 p.m. and will feature Tasty Vibrations, Live From 05, and Spider Cherry.

On Saturday, the anniversary bottle release will also feature three new beers. They include Confetti Cuddles, a rum barrel aged imperial cream ale meant to celebrate Funky Buddha’s ten-year milestone with the decadence and flare of a birthday cake with layered flavors of almond, coconut, and vanilla and a vanilla-scented wax, confetti, and a candle, so you can wish for another slice; Coconut Cream Pie IPA, a Hazy IPA with coconut, vanilla, and lactose sold in 12-ounce bottle four-packs; and Bob’s Backyard, a mango and habanero blonde ale sold in 12-ounce bottle four-packs.

This week's event lineup includes:
