The J. Clyde offers more craft beer than any other place in Alabama. With Birmingham's largest covered patio, you can eat outside rain or shine! On Historic Cobb Lane, the newly renovated front bar is housed in one of the oldest buildings in Birmingham.
I travel the country for a living and have been on the road for 9 months trying to find the best burger in the country. The Gus Burger add cheddar and bacon is the single best burger I have ever eaten
Food is great, atmosphere is intimate, and the beer list is extraordinary! They have pages and pages of beer selections. One of, if not THE largest selection in the city! Interesting history too.
Each week 1-3 new cask beers arrive. They are rare and delicious. Ask what's new on the cask, then ask for "a half" of one which strike you. You'll receive a smaller serving at a cheaper price.
Grab the sauerkraut balls to start and a burger/steak and eggs. The beer selection is unbelievable. Rare stuff includes TransAtlantique Kriek, incredible local stuff, and great Trappist ales.
This is a Birmingham institution. I suggest going to J. Clyde and then Blue Monkey afterwards for a late night cocktail. Avondale Miss Fancy for beer. Try a pizza for dinner. Delicious.
One of the oldest bars in Birmingham. Walk down the quaint cobblestone road hidden by the overhanging oak branches, and look for the low brick building with an inviting patio out front.
This place has vegetarian options that are difficult to find in the south - they even had a vegetarian sausage sandwich option which was pretty good. Great atmosphere, friendly staff.
Atmosphere is great, food and beer selection are second to none. However... The service is hit and miss. Sometimes I feel like I need a smoke signal just to get noticed..
Monday: First two high gravity drafts are $5/ea.Tue/Thur: Half price on all draft beers under 6% abvAwesome beer selection. Very knowledgeable bartenders.
Excellent build-your-own pizzas! Really, try them all! The Gus Burger is also fantastic. Also, ask about the Tuesday/Thursday specials on half-price beers.
Good beer selection. Great BLT and chicken strips. Quinn was friendly and servers were attentive. Reasonable pricing.
Enjoyed the food and the craft beers.... until it became dark and the cockroaches started to come out and join us in the back patio. I won't go back after that.
Tuesday and Thursday's are half price on local draft beers. Sit inside for old pub feel or grab a spot on the patio.
I was totally drinking the coffee oatmeal stout before I read that tip and it is awesome! Btw the sweet potato fries are great too.
Amazing beer selection and the food is not bad either. Make sure to check out the specials on tap.
Hummos is always delicious.. so is the cheese plate. They are both always changing. My boyfriend loves the steak, too.
The Gus Burger with an egg is awesome! Wouldn't have thought it. The pizzas are also really incredible! Try both.
Drinks: he had the Cinnamon Toast Crunch. I had The Grinch...pretty good. The wings are pretty good too.
Garlic chicken fingers with blue cheese dressing and a Good People Pale will return your soul to your body.
Try a pint of Lazy Magnolia Southern Pecan with a fried green tomato BLT. For more local tips, follow us on 4sq or check out www.renhotels.com
Do any of tge burgers, but add the mustard or goat cheese from the cheese plate, you wont be sorry.
The oysters...a must have on the new winter menu. Superb mixture of flavors and textures.
Agree with Patrick, the Sauerkraut Balls are pretty tasty as is the Gus Burger - topped with a fried egg
Gus burger, hummus and chicken fingers are delicious!! Also watermelon long island tea is great!
This is one of my favorite places ! Great Beer, Great Food & Great Atmosphere ! Best Sweet Potato Fries ever !
Tuesdays and Thursdays are half off draft nights. Try the Good People Coffee Oatmeal Stout!
I highly recommend the pork tenderloin on the winter menu! Yum!! And of course amazing beers!
Great spot for game days because of 1/2 price local brews and duck fat popcorn!
Delicious hot sauce. And thanks to the tipper about the half off draughts. Just has to be under 6%. Needless to say, I am enjoying my 2nd beer!
Blackbean burger with goat cheese, bacon and fried egg. Weird? Perhaps...delicious? Without a doubt
One of the best places for beer in town. And best chicken fingers and burger I have found.
The burger is really one of the best in Bham when cooked properly. Great atmosphere
Most fantastic beer list in town! Great food and beer pairings as well!
Over 130 beers on tap and made 100 best bars in America. Also serves a great hamburger and cheese plate.
Burgers are off the chain. The BLT is crazy good and crazy cheap. Mmmmmmmm beer.
Nice little pub with a good choice of beers. Not fussed about the food though
Great food and the beer selection is amazing and quite overwhelming!
J Clyde burger with bacon and the terrapin so fresh and so green green beer. Delish!
Imbibe Magazine recognized J. Clyde for being one of the Best Places for beer in the South in their March/April 2011 Southern Issue
Great food and beer selection... Gus burger is outstanding!
Try the BLT with goat cheese! It will change your life! Promise! ;)
Great place to watch SEC football. Make sure you arrive early and get a spot on the back patio.
A prost: to finding redemption in good beer, despite poor execution on service.
Gus Burger with goat cheese and Mushrooms. :) try it
Try a new beer when you're here. Great selection of microbrews.
The waiters are dicks. Not nice people. Better off going to the bar
