It's birthday time! Funky Buddha Brewery is turning two years old on May 30th.

They're going to be celebrating their anniversary with a bang - and by bang, we mean an epic all-day street festival with bands, food trucks, and dozens of limited and special release beers!

Celebrate with them Saturday, May 30th from noon to 10pm. The entire street will be shut down in front of the brewery, and they'll be taking over the parking lot south of the main entrance to accommodate even more revelry. It's sure to be an amazing time as they tap limited beers from the brewery in addition to rare guest draughts from local and national brewery friends of theirs. Don't miss out on the fun!

Below is some information on the release.

Two Year Anniversary Festival and Block Party Schedule

Date: Saturday, May 30, 2015
Festival hours: 12pm to 10pm
Tap room hours: 12pm to midnight

Cost of entry is free all day long

Ticket Sales Format

To keep their lines moving quickly and efficiently they will be using beer tickets the entire day. Tickets are good day of event only and are non-refundable. Unlike previous events where they had multiple small ticket booths, this year they will be using two main booths to run ticket sales. If you've been to MBCP Day, the way they handled bottle sales is roughly how they will handle tickets - they think this will bring wait times down even further! It's their goal to have you having fun, not waiting in line.

  • Tickets cost $6 each and are good for any beer on site (pour sizes may vary)
  • Ticket booths are located in the South Lot and at the East end of the festival grounds (map to come)
  • You must be 21 or over to purchase tickets and redeem them for beers
  • Ticket sales are cash or credit. ATMs will be located near the ticket tents. Bringing cash will expedite the process for everyone!
  • All sales are final.
Parking

Parking options are as follows:

  • Main parking for the fest will be located at 4100 N Dixie Highway, three blocks north of the brewery along Dixie. Parking here will cost $5 and include a complimentary shuttle during peak hours. This lot will be lit, manned, and protected so it is your best place to park!
  • The public lot south of the main tap room entrance and the festival grounds
  • Either of the grass fields across Dixie Highway
  • The east lot that runs behind the brewery
  • Please do not park on their neighbor's lawns or in front of their driveways, or in front of businesses down the plaza along Dixie Highway. Their neighbors WILL tow! Also if you are caught parking in a swayle or in front of a residential building, you will be ticketed by BSO. They are being strict this year, but they do have ample parking available so don't do it!
