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."
