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.
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 1,500 square foot tasting room and lounge is open Monday 3:00 PM – 12:00 AM, Tuesday 3:00 PM – 12:00 AM (Taco Tuesday with Nacho Bizness), Wednesday 3:00 PM – 12:00 AM (Trivia Night), Thursday 3:00 PM – 12:00 AM (Thursday Night Bike Rides), Friday 3:00 PM – 1:00 AM, Saturday 12:00 PM – 1:00 AM, Sunday 12:00 PM – 9:00 PM. Our Happy Hour is Monday – Friday 3 PM – 6 PM. $1 off House Beers. We also offer complimentary brewery tours on Saturdays at 3:00 PM., 4:00 PM., and 5:00 PM.
Whether you jump on the Brew Bus or ride your bicycle, stop by and fill a growler, snag a keg, take a tour or hang out and enjoy some fresh handcrafted beer while the brewery operates at full capacity. If you’re hungry, don’t worry, we’ve got that covered. Food trucks are nearby Thursday – Saturday, and we recommend using Delivery Dudes. Also, LauderAle is now open on Tuesdays from 4 PM – 11 PM for Taco Tuesdays with Nacho Bizness.
Most of the materials utilized in constructing the tasting room are either natural or recycled. From repurposed pallets to defective railroad rails and ties, we’ve tried our best to utilize previously manufactured goods to reduce waste while providing a unique setting for our customers.
A complete line of exclusive merchandise is available for purchase on site including kegs, growlers, pint glasses, t-shirts, hats and stickers. Ask us about special events, tours, classes and private parties too.

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.
