Before today, the only way to balance your body's alcohol levels at The Funky Buddha was by grabbing a bite at one of the food trucks parked outside. The brewery recognized the room for innovation here and partnered with chef Jeff Vincent to create Craft Food Counter & Kitchen, Funky Buddha's first ever restaurant outpost (located inside).
The huge bocce court room behind the taproom was completely renovated to make room for the kitchen, which was built inside a real shipping container looking into the brewery. Despite renovations, there will still be everyone's favorite drinking games like giant Jenga and cornhole.
As for the menu, everything on it is "beer friendly," including options like the Tap Room Pretzel, made with spent grain from the brewhouse, Funky Wings and Beer Cheese. Larger dishes showcase a more traditional Local Burrata Salad and a Southern Fried Chicken served on a Big Ass Beer Cheddar Biscuit, because a regular Cheddar Biscuit is boring.
Craft Food Counter & Kitchen will be open daily from noon to midnight. Check out the full menu and the suggested beer pairing for each meal here.
