The Keg on Sixth Is on Trend and Off the Beaten Path

Set off the main road, among warehouses, auto repair shops, and cheap motels just south of State Road 84 and west of Federal Highway, the Keg on Sixth isn't a place most Fort Lauderdale residents would just happen to stumble across.

It is, however, part of a quickly growing trend among those in the craft beer set of restaurateurs opening their doors far away from the busy tourist strips like Las Olas Boulevard, Himmarshee Street, and the large commercial streets that run through town.

"We didn't want to be downtown," says Eddie McNerney, who opened the place in March with co-owner Richard Carmichael. "We like that you don't have to fight through the crowd to get a beer, and there's plenty of parking. We wanted a relaxed vibe with lots of different kinds of people."

Keg on Sixth is in good company. With spots like Riverside Market (situated way back in residential Sailboat Bend), Laser Wolf (located in the industrial part of town between Broward and Sunrise boulevards), and Tap 42 (which fully converted the old dive Brownies into one of the busiest places in Fort Lauderdale), these new, beercentric bars and eateries are creating fresh destinations for locals looking to sample an array of craft brew among like-minded people.

Although more urban, Keg on Sixth's interior suits the neighborhood. Edison bulbs hang over the corrugated steel and wood bar. Graffiti covers the wall. Cool concrete lines the floor. The aesthetic is almost industrial yet still warm and inviting.

Servers un-hospitable, prices high for where you are, it's not Lincoln Rd. If that's all they have they better hire some T&A for servers..

......................well poor service is the NUMBER ONE complaint of visitors and guests (TOURISTS) in ZAGATs and on YELP in broward county

trouble is the compensation is LOW and trained knowledgable and educated people are NOT available here in FT LIQUORDALE at the retail BIZ level so this area doesn't ATTRACT the good people unless it's DURING SEASON

so that leaves LOCAL YOKELs who for the most part don't cut it (the places i frequent i know who is serving me and many if not most are long time dedicated people who offer good service through experience with me as a patron)
