We had no idea the amount of craziness that was coming our way at our One-Year Anniversary Festival. Throughout the day we experienced nearly 6000 ravenous beer lovers, coming to each get their paws on some limited release beers, soak in the sun and good tunes, and nosh on some of the best food truck grub South Florida has to offer. And we’ll say that pretty much everyone did it with a big smile on their faces, happy to be celebrating the occasion with us.
We debuted some dozen new beers and tapped way more – we sampled rare kegs from other local Florida breweries and danced on the roof top, firing off T-shirts from a cannon at the crowd below. We had epic tapping count downs, watched live art being made, and partied with thousands of our best buds. And we did it together.
One thing we’ve learned quickly in our short tenure here at the brewery is that the beer scene down here is a community – a passionate, excited, and dedicated one, at that. And nowhere else was that more evident than on Saturday.
Take a look through the many pictures and videos below and relive the party. This is just the beginning, Buddha fans! If we — or you — have any say in it, we’ve got many more years ahead of us.

So much! We’ve seen a ton of videos circulating of this mysterious figure up on the bar, counting down each timed tapping with a showman’s enthusiasm. Wonder who that is?
Finally, we held a raffle for anyone that bought one of our live screen printed T-shirts or commemorative anniversary posters. The winner has been announced, and it’s Brett Duker! Congrats, Brett!
