The Lodge

We will call it a review, but if you want a solid, positive opinion of The Lodge, just know that I have returned 6 times in two months since I first discovered the place. Well, discovered is generous. Ian of Brother Tuckers told me about it.

I’d rank it as the best beer bar in Palm Beach County.

I don’t have to point at the menu when I order -  which is a pet peeve of mine that I frequently encounter. The bartender knows my beers by nickname. I say “I’ll have a 90″ or ” give me a 13th Anniversary” and the staff at The Lodge know what I’m talking about without having to ask twice.

They have some wasted space on the taps, but not much. Killian’s and Yuengling – Sea Dog, which I can’t stand, but I guess it doesn’t count as wasted space. PBR gets a pass for nostalgia and straight up Americana.  I need this place to make money so it sticks around so if they need to sell a few beers to appease the masses, then so be it.

Make no mistake however, this is a beer lovers bar.

Case in point – on the afternoon I decided to write this, Don from Fat Cats in Ft Lauderdale barrels in. Beer is still a pretty small world in South Florida, and it’s great to see that a local bar owner and beer lover that I respect, patronizes a bar that I like.

A bit later in the afternoon, I let the bartender pick a beer for my wife, Alexis. This is pretty much the ultimate sign of my respect, as I have a high opinion of my opinion. The only other person in South Florida I have ever deferred to is Ian of Brother Tuckers.

Anyway, Shenendoah nailed it. Sprecher Black Bavarian. A beer I would have been hesitant to try, though I am fond of the black lagers. Its smokey and malty, alcohol just less than 6%… Right up her alley.

I hope the folks at The Lodge keep up the good work.  If you haven’t been, I highly recommend you check it out.
