This place is a hidden gem, took my friend and I by surprise. We went at a school night at 6 30, the place was packed. They have a ton of beer selections, cool people (even the customers seemed to be super friendly), and yummy pizza. It's a homey place where you and your friends can hang out without feeling any pressure to finish your meal quick then go.

This place really sums up the great part of Fort Lauderdale. No loud bad music, no overpriced drinks, just courteous staff and great food (don't even try to decide, just get BOTH pizzas). Love the beer selection here as well. They beat out World of Beer, and any other place in Broward County, and priced cheaper. Where else can you get 6 different types of Sam Adams for $3 each? Oh, they have 33 types of cider as well!! Great place, lots of personality, and an awesome place to hang out. Oh yeah, it's dog friendly!

Was very impressed with how different and homey it felt. Was like walking into someone's home with the largest stand up coolers one could imagine. Can spend one hour just looking through different beers.

I had some sort of banana beer. Would definitely go back. Had a chicken pizza that was good too!

Very Unique- One must go

Heard about it on NPR - had never even heard about it before, but wow, the question isn't "Would we go back?" it's "WHEN can we go back!?" What a GREAT spot - hard to find, that whole area is a maze and you can drive around for ages without figuring our where you are - but it's warm, welcoming, the beer coolers are a sight for sore eyes for those of us (read: husband) who LOVE and appreciate beer from all over the world - his eyes nearly popped out when he saw how many there were, so many he'd never heard of before - it's just fabulous. Casual service, beer is on the honor system (which we really like), great atmosphere - the pizza was thin crust, not oily, and very delicious (on NPR the caller recommended the bbq chicken pizza, so we tried it and it was phenomenal) - just a fantastic place. When we paid and left, the owner asked us if we'd like to sign up on the emailing list. Normally we don't do that, but we both squealed "YES! SIGN US UP!" He said sometimes they do tastings etc. but whatever it is, if they are doing it, we are going there. Good atmosphere, warm and welcoming, and a true find. We WILL be back. Soon and often. Just so you know, it was $21 plus tip for a pizza (half margarita, half bbq chicken), plus two boutique beers/IPA - you can't beat that value!

This locals spot is a true gem. Tucked in a small residential area just west of downtown, this beer place has great food. You will be shocked by the 10 full coolers of beer, probably 300 different beers in total. Julian, the owner l, was kind enough to show off his garden behind the place the first time we visited. He uses his own veggies when possible, or gets the most local goods, to garnish and supply their delectable food choices. If you're willing to go off te beaten path but still stay close to downtown and the beach check out Riverside Market. Cheers.
