Visited 2.5.16, quite late at night. Located in a brick house and the tap selection was great, good curation of many southern brews on tap, food menu that includes a vegan option or two. Good service. Definitely worth stopping by.

Had dinner last night. On a small brick lined street. Had some tables outside and a decent sized bar. Gives off an old English castle/ cave feel to it. Tap list was extensive. Servers were knowledgeable and friendly but service seems a little on the slow side for being not overly busy. Food menu was adequate, I havd fish and chips which were pretty damn good. This place is awesome

Nice, cozy little place on a back alley in Birmingham. Good draft selection and long bottle list (although I couldn’t find anything truly special on it). Friendly staff and nice food.

Visited back in January 2012 to watch Alabama play in the National Championship Game. Great pub-style atmosphere and a great selection of local and regional drafts. Definitely worth visiting.

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.

Odd atmosphere as place is pieced together interesting the trees growing in it. Good selection. Pretty good food and not bad prices. But service was not to godd still one of the best in Bama.
