Royal Pig Pub & Kitchen is a nice addition to Las Olas Blvd in Fort Lauderdale (opened in 2012). Before American Social opened down the street (also in 2012), there were basically no bars with a decent selection of craft beer on this long strip of restaurants of bars. "The Pig" as people call it, doesn't have the selection that American Social does, but they are in a much nicer space and while they still get very crowded - especially on the weekends - there is enough room to walk around freely and it's more of a mix of a young and older crowd than at American Social which is primarily a young crowd. The food is also pretty good at the Pig - the menu seems New Orleans-inspired and of course features lots of pork, but they have a good kitchen with very good bar food. You could definitely go here for dinner. They also have a nice outdoor patio and TVs everywhere. The bar is nicely decorated. Service is so-so.

Now for the beer. As someone mentioned, they have some good beers but not the selection of a craft beer bar. On tap they have Widmer Hefe, Firerock Pale Ale, Woodchuck, MH #9, Tequesta der Chancellor, Sam Adams seasonal, Bell's Amber, Breckenridge Vanilla, Dale's PA, Brooklyn Lager, GF West Coast IPA, Palm Amber, LH Milk Stout, Shipyard Seasonal, Panick Attack and GI Honkers. The higher end ones run $5.50 for a pub glass or $7 for a schooner glass - decent prices. Green Flash West Coast IPA is not something you see on tap many places in Florida. All in all, it's a nice looking place with good food and you can get some quality beer here.

overall ok but not really a beer bar more like a downtown Lauderdale place that happens to serve pretty good beer.

I sat at the bar and had a Shipyard Smashed Pumpkin pint, ok selection but not craft beer bar good. The service was good but not outstanding and the crowd was a youngish couple night on the town crowd. I'd stop by here again to give it another shot and too see if they update their selection.

Nice atmosphere beautiful decor and very large bar with tall stools and a raised area that has normal chairs. I sat on the normal chair set up at the bar spot and it felt weird at first but a nice touch none the less.

Not a destination but a good place to grab a decent beer if you are in the neighborhood.
