Ok place hit up during a layover at the airport. Have a lot of taps, but only a few of them rotate. The place has a nice patio, but inside is a little character-free. Service so-so but they will sometimes (grudgingly) give samples. Fries I had were pretty much fast food fries. Tasters flights are very expensive at 3 for $14, but I guess they are large sizes at 6 ounces. They wonít let you include the more expensive taps in the flights either. This place is really only worth enjoying if you have a big layover at the airport. Quick busride here and a $13 cab ride back.

The previous night at Funky Buddha, I had asked the guy next to me at the bar which other beer spots I should hit in Fort Lauderdale before my flight. He recommended Tap42, and it worked perfect. Tap42 is located 2 miles north of the Fort Lauderdale airport (FLL), and was convenient and easy to find. There is plenty of parking in their lot, or on the the street. The restaurant is about half large bar and half huge outdoor bar and patio. The bar has a great design, half inside and half outside. Friendly service, clear easy to read chalk beer board. There were quite a few local Florida drafts. I didnít eat, though the tacos and burgers coming out of the kitchen looked good. This fit the bill perfectly, great place to have a couple of beers before my flight. Thanks for the recommendation, random person at Funky Buddha.

76 = ★★★ (Worth the visit, must for locals, and visitors with time)

I only use the total score, not the component parts.

Spacious place with a huge patio area. The place gets packed and is really more of a happy hour spot that happens to have good beer on tap than a place that was designed with beer nerds in mind. I didnít try the food, but the sliders looked good. An impressive tap list for South Florida with many local breweries represented.

One Of my favorite places in SoFlo. The place is beautiful and it sets up a wonderful ambiance for friends and great beer to merge. The beer selection is great and the food selection is not large and a bit pricy but well worth it. Definitely my first choice. Cheers!

First time here yesterday and I have to say, this place impressed. Hopefully they can keep this place fresh and innovative and SE Florida can start losing that "beer dessert" moniker. Very good happy hour dealís including $3 off drafts. Service was very polite and they busted it out. Hostess was incredibly nice. Decor is sleek modern with enough wood to make it cool and comfortable. Food was very, very good. Had the meatloaf and it was rocking. Just wish I had more time to spend here. A very short trip from the airport in case you have a long stopover or a day to kill before/after a cruise.

If youíre looking for a craft beer bar in Fort Lauderdale this is pretty much it. Lots of south Florida Attitude with a long bar and an a big patio area. They have 50 on tap of mostly national craft. The prices are really high, but drinking in south Florida is never cheap. The place does get very loud very quickly and it gets packed at night. Still thereís enough beer geekery here thatís itís worth a visit.

Great place! So many amazing beers on tap that are rotated constantly and the bartenders usually will allow you to sample a beer before you buy it. The food is good, I would like to try a few more things on the menu.

Can get loud inside. Good selection, appropriate glassware. Only one visit, but great first impression. Happy hour (till 7) prices make beer prices reasonable. Good service with friendly waitress who was willing to share food recommendations and somewhat beer knowledgable. Had the salami breadstick appetizer which was delish. Get th Drunken Goat hamburger - best burger Iíve had Not cooked on my grill!! Rotating beer selection means this place will keep high traffic. Will definitely revisit!!

Tap 42 has a great selection of beers on draft and in bottles and good food. They have a big crowd any night of the week. You need to get there in the afternoon if you want a spot at the bar.
