A classic taproom just outside of the brewing area in a warehouse amidst a bunch of others like it. Inside is a bit sparse in decor, though there was a place that looked like it could host some musicians. Outside was a nice little patio with 8-10 picnic tables, cornhole, and a food truck spot (which I assume is populated most days).

Selection included a handful of IPAs and a couple porters/stouts, with a couple lighter offerings and a couple Belgian style ales. The quality was pretty good across the board, with just a couple seeming a bit off and an equal number that were quite tasty.

Service was single-threaded, but wasn't too slow despite that fact. Their tap list was a bit old, so it did take some adjustments to our flight lists to fill out the 4-beer holder.

All in all, I place I'd stop by again, perhaps to check out the vibe at a more busy time of the week.

Hard to believe so many different styles of beer at such high quality from such a small place. Never had a bad beer, off beer or a bad experience. Good music on certain days and a nice rotation of food trucks.

This place had it all. Ihad a blast, good vibe, the beer selection was great. All beers Itasted were way above average. The Double D IPA, and the other IPA I had were excellent. Banana Pepper beer was awesome, and the 2 bartenders were excellent {I dont remember names too well, but both were from my area Allentown, Jersey}. Thanks.

The LauderAle Brewing is a neat place. Located in a difficult section of Ft. Lauderdale....surrounded by the port which is high security. This place is a warehousing type structure with picnic tables and neat bar. The quality of the beer was good. The service was friendly and happy to talk about their beers. There was plenty of beer options to choose from. Definitely worth a visit.....just be patient in trying to seek it out.

Garage shop nanobrew on the wrong side of the tracks, literally. Should get an award for finding the place. Sort of did by taking their survey and getting a free pour. 18 taps, all active. Had the cream ale (corny, Genesee-like) and the Brown on nitro (very good, see review). Nice mix of clientele. 15 seat bar, picnic tables. Friendly bar staff. No food truck during my visit.

A warehouse type open building with big industrial fans, no AC here so be ready. Great brews and a funky vibe. No food served there but you can bring in, and if you're lucky a food truck will be parked outside selling.

I visited last Saturday. Twelve taps, eleven in service, all their own brews. A Porter, a Brown, IPA, Wit, Imperial Stout, Mild, Red, Sour Cider, and more. I had a flight of four, then an IPA. The beer ranged from very good to excellent. The brewery/taproom is in an industrial building, in an industrial area. They've made it attractive inside. A decent crowd were sampling beer, there was a tv, a wooden bar. But it had a great energy. The owners were there, tending bar and brewing beer. The brewery is right behind the bar, you can watch and smell the process. It's very cool. A must for home-brewers and craft beer fans.

12 taps; 11 operational at the time of my visit. Two guest taps (DFH 60 min and Avery).
Good variety in styles including seasonal porters, a stout, APA, IPA, DIPA, Wit.
Very laid back casual atmosphere in this warehouse. Brewing operations going on immediately on the other side of the bar, complete with their aromas, ading some entertainment and atmosphere.

New nano brewery in Ft Lauderdale cool place and great people behind this joint. Beer is limited and they run out of stuff often but it's great to see new breweries opening up. No AC, no food so plan accordingly but they have a big ass fan cooling the place down.

Update 5.2018
Wow has this place really grown and the beer has gone from good to great with some being outstanding! The Berliners and IPAs are hitting it out of the park. I also love the connection to community and events that Lauderale does. anyway if you are local or just passing through pass on Funky Buddha and hit Lauderale and Invasive Species for a taste of what South Florida craft beer has to offer.
