Funky Buddha Craft Food Counter and Kitchen Food Menu

Great beer calls for great food. Not to worry, the Craft Food Counter and Kitchen has got you covered. The kitchen is helmed by Chef Jeff Vincent, a South Carolina native and veteran head chef. The craft food recipes were designed to be made from scratch and incoporate Funky Buddha’s award winning beers in many of the dishes including the spent grain pretzel, beer cheese soup, and much more. For this years festival, Chef Jeff was inspired to create authentic German dishes to pair with the Funky Buddha’s German-style beers. After a long week of brainstorming over a couple of beers, this is the outcome. Enjoy!
