Hidden in Fort Lauderdale's Port Everglades complex, LauderAle is a dog-friendly, kid-friendly and (yes) monkey-friendly brewery with a small-town feel. The beers made here carry Florida-fresh notes of lemon, orange, and pineapple. That's not to say LauderAle only brews fruited sours; here you'll also find porters, IPAs, even a Belgian tripel whose 9.2 percent ABV will make your toes curl. The brewery hosts food trucks nightly on a rotating basis, and on weekends there's live music. Dogs are welcomed with fresh water and cookies. And the monkeys? Well, you can't bring your own, but there's a colony of vervets that hang out in the trees right behind the brewery. LauderAle even hosts fundraisers to make sure the primates are taken care of.
