Broward, you big beautiful beer-bloated lush, what would the rest of South Florida do without you? Of all the beer joints, gin saloons, watering holes and dives across the lower portion of the state, you probably have the finest. I think I can confidently say that. It's science.

Last month, New Times conducted a very serious shoe-leather investigation. Everywhere we looked around in the 305 and 954, prices were creeping up: rent, real estate, gas, and especially, the price of beer. The latter trend shouldn't surprise anyone. In drinking culture, haughty is the new trend, with expensive-ass craft beers and cocktails that cost more than feeding a family of four at McDonald's. The old days of cheap beer-and-a-shot seem to be circling the drain.

So, we decided to do the seemingly impossible. Can you still get cheap beer in South Florida? Can you still get the cheapest beer deal out there, $1 draft? We went looking.


It was surprisingly tough. Most places that do dollar drafts only do them one night of the week. We were looking for a place that did it on the regular, every happy hour. No chains.

Our search took us first all over Miami. Zip. Then we hit Broward. There too, we had trouble finding the dollar draft. But in Broward, we did discover some of the best neighborhood dives in all the region - from Walsh's Irish Sports Bar on Federal Highway to the Tropic Cay on Fort Lauderdale Beach. And in the end, we did find a dollar draft beer in this fine county.
