On June 1, the City of Oakland Park and Funky Buddha will celebrate the official opening of the brewery and the completion of 38th Street Plaza. The event will feature plenty of beer, live music, and food trucks, including Bite Gastrotruck, Ms. Cheezious, Taco Fresh, and Frankie Dogs.

The event will include a ribbon-cutting with Mayor John Adornato III, Oakland Park City commissioners, and county, state, and federal representatives of the city.

"This opening will be the culmination of over a year's worth of work," said Funky Buddha brand director John Linn. "Words can't express how excited we are to finally be opening and to share our creation with the community."

The celebration is scheduled to take place both inside and outside the new brewery, from 4 p.m. to midnight. About time to raise a glass.

The Funky Buddha Brewery will be located at 1201 NE 38th St. in Oakland Park. Until the second location opens, you'll have to get your Funky fill by visiting the mothership, their original location, at 2621 N. Federal Highway in Boca Raton. Call 561-368-4643, or visit thefunkybuddha.com.
