As students sip sudsy mugs, The Funky Buddha Lounge & Brewery’s expert beermeisters dole out instruction in the finer points of fermentation during three-hour brewing classes. With palates honed sampling the 110 craft beers stocked by the lounge, skilled brewers dispense fundamental techniques and helpful tips for combining malt, barley, hops, water, and fresh, handpicked bubbles into flavorful, sudsy beverages.
During the course, students sip two of the brewery’s regular draft selections—including the Hop Gun IPA or the Floridian hefeweizen—or rotating specialties such as the Maple Bacon Coffee porter or the No Crusts PB&J brown ale. To put newfound skills to use, students can peruse Funky Buddha’s homebrew supply shop for essential ingredients and equipment for crafting their own beer or beer-flavored shampoo.
