This small place has some of the best craft beers I have ever found in a bar. They get some rare, great cigar city beers every once in a while and the rotating taps are pretty damn good too

This place brings in the occasional rare keg every once in a while, and thank you for that. Most of the time, very good tap handles are available. I specially like that they bring some local breweries aboard, some that have no other output, but that are pretty good. There really wouldn't be any other way to try out the nanobreweries if it wasn't for The Laser Wolf.

Super relaxed atmosphere and nice bottle menu as well.

This place is awesome. Stumbled upon it when our server at a local restaurant recommended this place for craft beer. Turns out the owners both work there as well and are very knowledgeable about beer. VERY cool tap tower and the art all around the bar is amazing and done by a local artist. They serve great beer in clean glassware and also use appropriate glassware for the style of beer served. The selection is on point and they have a lot of locally brewed beer here (cigar city, funky Buddha). I would book a flight to Fort Lauderdale just to go back to this establishment!

Great place, I went on a Monday while visiting FLL area based on finding this place on BA. Bottle selection very good, draft selection as bars should supported local. Bartender and one of the Owners were cool to talk to and share beer stories and recommend. Seems like they have small bands on w/e's but as I said was there on a Monday. Sign I liked the place - I bought a tshirt!

Cool bar near downtown Fort Lauderdale, but not in downtown. Kind of in the shady neighborhood near Sunrise Blvd & Andrews Avenue, around the corner from Maguire's Hill Irish Pub. But hey, they have free parking and an awesome selection of craft beers, microbrews etc at great prices, like $5-$6 a beer.

Usually they have a DJ spinning inside later in the evening when more people show up. They'll even put a 2nd DJ out in the courtyard if it gets real packed. They usually spin good stuff to get people dancing. It's definitely a hipster hangout, but all types hang out there and you will see some hot women come in there when they are busy. The Bartenders/owners seemed really cool. Definitely a solid alternative to dealing with the crowds and paying $10 to park in downtown.

I have been here several times and always received good service from the bartenders, the draft prices are a dollar or two cheaper than other bars in Fort Lauderdale, they usually have several Florida beers on tap, and you gotta love the interesting decor and classic B-movies playing on the TV. Not a place where you can watch sports, and sometimes the crowd is weak, or too many hipster kids, but it's a great spot to chill with friends. I highly recommend this place if you are a craft beer drinker and in Fort Lauderdale.

cool place very close to my house, the business owner has the coolest business card ever. If in fort lauderdale you should go it's worth it. Most beers are between 5 & 6 dollars for a 12 oz bottle or pint from their ever changing draft, bombers obviously are more expensive and vary. Living in lauderdale i don't have that many options on good bars with great beers, this is one of 3 places i go too on a regular basis. The name alone sold me, the miami bass thumping in the speakers and ruination on tap i'm sold!

Ok first the good, The guys behind the bar are really nice, know their beer and provide great service. The beer selection is very good for Florida (which has been steadily improving since 2005). The set up is small but a nice atmosphere and they play great movies on the screen behind the bar.

You can usually find a few Florida local brews, CCB, Due South and Tequesta to name a few along with well selected out of state brews. The bottle selection is also pretty solid and they try to get rarer stuff when they can.

If you hit them when a food truck is there you're in for a treat as they seem to get the cream of the crop of the Ft Lauderdale food trucks. I had an outstanding burger there last night with some of the best fries ever.

All and all a must for either the beer geek visiting South Florida or the resident beer lover.

I'm a local Ft. Lauderdale beer nut / hop head. We really don't have too many phenomenal beer joints. Came across this place a few weeks ago. Its small, selection isn't wonderful, but its got everything else. The owners are great, knowledgeable, and love beer. Friday and Saturday nights get busy with a good crowd. Food truck pulls right up to the front door. Yes, selection isn't great, but the taps are all quarter kegs and go fast, so its kind of exciting seeing what comes next. I guess the bottle selection could be better, lots of victory and stone stuff, all run of the craft brew mill. I would like to see them get more Cigar city stuff, which they are having a CCB event next month, so thats great news. I think in time this place will become great. Oh and their motto is awesome, No jerks, yes beers.

Stopped into this little spot on a weekend in which I had to attend a wedding in the area. Wife had to hit a bachlorette party on a Thursday night, figured I'd check it out. Not like there's too many craft bars in the area to begin with!

It's located in a somewhat barren part of the city, down the block from a McDonalds and across from some RR tracks. A car definitely helps due to the location and lack of decent sidewalk coverage....I did a combination of taxi and shoe leather express.

Once you get there though, it's a cozy, rock n'roll leaning, joint. The lone flat screen was used to screen grade Z horror films, and the soundtrack was an appealing mix of Queens of the Stone Age, At the Drive In, Beastie Boys and Joy Division among others. Nice wooden bar, double glazed glass windows, and lots of rock-themed artwork amongst red walls. Guessing it gets packed on the weekends.

Nine rotating taps, most of which happened to be IPAs on this given evening. Not too special....Stone IPA and Ruination, DFH 60, Avery IPA, Shipyard XXXX, and a few others. Bottle selection was mostly limited to readily available craft brewers....lots of Rogue, Victory, Terrapin, Cigar City, and a handful of Belgians. Not mind-blowing, but still solid.

Bartender was a nice, pleasant fellow with knowledge of both the beer, and the music. At one point he cracked open a bomber of Cigar City Guava Grove and shared samples with us barflies. Nice touch.

Good vibe, good beer, fine addition to a town that could seriously use more places like this.

The Laser Wolf is a new bar that opened up pretty close to downtown Fort Lauderdale. Located in a neat historic building near the train tracks off of Andrews, it is certainly a destination reached best by car (though there is ample street parking). Although currently living in Buffalo, NY, I am a native Floridian and so anytime I see a new spot for beer pop up while I am visiting home, I get very hopeful (because for the most part, the 'beer scene' in the Fort Lauderdale area sucks).

The Laser Wolf has a welcoming yet still cool feeling atmosphere dominated by their nice wood bar and these old looking doors behind it. The bar is decorated with a diverse range of art which I am guessing is primarily from local artists. They also bring in local music in the form of DJs and bands fairly regularly.

We were pretty fortunate to go on a slow night, so we ended up talking a good deal with one of the owners/founders of the bar, who very willing to talk about beer, the bar, or anything really that came up. The service was great and it was clear they appreciated the business.

The selection of beer consists of 9 rotating taps and a bottle/can list. I think they may have also had wine. The tap selection when we went wasn't great but it also wasn't horrible. According to the owner and by following their facebook page, they get new and different things in all the time. We actually tried a bottle of the Stone Green Tea IPA as was suggested, and it was fun/good.

They don't sell food but some nights there is a food truck right outside selling wood-fired pizza which is pretty cool.

Overall, thank god for this bar. Fort Lauderdale desperately needed it.
