Brewery

LauderAle operates on a three vessel, electric fired, three barrel brewery. Currently we’re able to produce 40 barrels per month, which is fermented in one of ten SS conical fermenters. Our hops and grain are locally grown within the United States and imported from the ancient beer regions of Europe. We donate our used ingredients to Miranda Farms located on S. Andrews Avenue, as well as Little Legs Farm in Okeechobee.

About Us

Established in January 2013, LauderAle is a small batch, electric fired brewery located just outside of Port Everglades in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Founded by natives, LauderAle is the first and only Nano Brewery in Southeast Florida. We pride ourselves in cultivating authentic ales centered around local culture and influence. Our beers range in a wide variety of rotating styles from Blondes to Imperial Stouts, along with seasonals and special releases. We also serve several guest taps from local Florida breweries.

Our Story

Just like every other killer idea, LauderAle was conceived over a few beers. Owners Joey Farrell and Kyle Jones stumbled upon this idea one night at the local craft beer bar, Tap 42. Amongst bantering, possible inventions and other business ideas the one that stuck was to own a brewery. Only problem was they knew nothing about brewing beer, they knew how to drink it though and that’s all it took. Now that they had this awesome idea they had to come up with a name. LauderAle duh! That was easy. The hard part is remembering who came up with it. To this day they both still have the same answers. The next day they ordered a 5 gallon home brew kit and 2 weeks later they were waiting for FedEx like it was Christmas. The home brew kit didn’t arrive until almost 9 PM, and since they didn’t know anything about brewing, they fired up the burner on a stovetop oven in a small condo. Six months later, they moved into a garage and upped to a 15 gallon all grain system they built themselves.
The system included a digital control panel that allowed them to control temperatures and pumps from a smart device. Six months later they moved their system into a 3,200 SF warehouse in a small industrial district near Port Everglades and the FPL plant. Just one year after opening, they’ve upgraded the brew house to 3 barrels allowing them to produce roughly 500 barrels annually. Up to this point, you could only find LauderAle beers on tap in their tasting room, however, that’s going to change soon as LauderAle is currently planning on distributing to 5 local bars.

Funny thing is that Kyle was never supposed to pick them up from the airport. He filled in for a friend who wasn’t feeling well (probably hung over). It’s highly possible that had they not gotten together that night LauderAle’s existence may have never come to fruition. It’s neat the way things happen.
