J. Clyde had a great line up of beers when we visited - 35 to 40 taps in all - and we were particularly pleased to find Alabama’s 56 or so breweries strongly represented. Trim Tab brewery had opened in Birmingham just a few days earlier and J. Clyde had been serving five Trim Tab beers but only one was left . It was Pillar to Post, billed as a brown ale although it tasted more like a stout to me, and very good it was too! The J. Clyde bar is in a low, cottage like building tucked away in Cobb Lane, off the main drag of Five Points. It has rough stone and brick walls and tiffany lamps - very cosy and quite an individual sort of place. I liked it. (Visited 3 February 2014).

A large selection of beers on tap and in bottles. Also have some casked beers. Food is good but a little overpriced. A nice pub atmosphere tucked away down a one way alley.

A nice English-style pub tucked off the main drag of downtown Birmingham. The exterior is rather unassuming and I missed the place the first time. There are a few tables outside, bar seating and tables inside. I arrived at opening on a Friday and was promptly served a set of four samples of my choosing. Since I had just eaten, I passed on anything here, though the menu certainly looked inviting. This was a good way to spend an hour sipping and contemplating brews.

Great ambiance, knowledgable bartenders, and the food was excellent. If you want a nice place to get a beer, this is the place.

This is a really cool place in a nice area of Birmingham. Their tap selection was top notch, and the food was very good. I would suggest this as a "must visit" for anyone in Birmingham interested in good beer.

A hodge podge sort of place with about 40 taps heavy on the locals. The bartenders seem to know their stuff, though the prices are a tad high. Great spot in Birmingham to grab a pint.

Located off of side street/back alley. It’s not a big place and even with a bigger room in the back seats fill up quickly. They have about 50 taps with 30 fixed and 20 or so that rotate. They had a nice mix of local and national craft. Crowd skews a little younger thanks typical for a craft beer Place skews younger because of its l proximity to UAB. Draft prices are high but that seems to be more to do with Alabama’s insanely high taxes on beer and liquor. Is this the best craft beer bar in Alabama? Probably.

Getting to this place is a pain, parking is always limited. If you are going to hang out in 5 points though, you should definitely stop by. Good selection and nice Ambiance. Gets crowded in the bar area very quickly.
