Cool little place in southside 5-points. Itís pretty small and gets crowded, so get there early. Best selection in town, food is above average bar food, and ambiance is fantastic, even when the service is horribly slow....

I grew up in Birmingham and discovered craft beer a couple of years before the archaic beer laws were changed to allow beer over 6% abv. J Clyde quickly became the epicenter of the movement and within literally days they had an amazing selection of craft brews on tap and in the bottle, and they continue to lead the charge with the Free The Hops movement. The food is also excellent. The bartenders are extremely knowledgable and the owner is often around getting to know the patrons on slower days. My only complaint would be sometimes the wait staff are woefully slow and not as knowledgable, but this may have changed since I moved away. Itís still my go to place when I am in town to visit family.

Being somewhat new to beer, in particular craft beers and high gravity, I found out about The J Clyde and thought this would be the perfect place to start learning. We eased in the door late one Sunday afternoon to find just a handful of friendly people sitting around chatting. The bartender took my inexperience and my brief description of what I thougt I liked, and he ran with. He hand-picked a flight of beers that he thought Iíd like. All 5 beers were different, some dark, some sweet, and even a high gravity thrown in. All 5 were excellent choices and fit my tastes well. We ordered their fried sour kraut balls to go along with the flight. The beer and the conversation started out good and only got better. Same goes for the bartender who kept coming back to slip me a sip of various other beers he thought Iíd like. One J Clyde burger and two hours later, I had sampled 8-10 different beers, had some excellent food, met some super nice people including the nicest most beer knowledgeable bartender in Bíham, and indeed met my goal of learning about a handful of good beers. Iíd recommend The J Clyde for every beer lover as they have one of the largest selections on tap in The Ham.

Tucked out of the way in downtown Birminham is this jewel. Laid back bar with very good food. Great local tap selection backed by an extensive bottle menu.

Extensive beer selection with lots of seasonals and special guests. Nice pub feel. They were out of brats and the "famous" burger I had was good but not exceptional. Build your own flight (pricing based on ABV) is very welcome. Will definitely return when in town.

Very cool bar. Great beer selection: bottles and on tap. Food was good enough for a bar. The bartender working when I was there was Amber (...I think): very cool, knew the beers very well, super nice, easy on the eyes.
If you want a good beer bar in Birmingham, this is the place to go.

Fantastic beer selection right here in Birmingham. Very small front room so get there early, no smoking. Back patio is large and enclosed, they do allow smoking back there. Food is great! Service can be a little lacking when they get really busy. Iím glad that I found this place. Would highly recommend.

Been here twice, always go when I am in town visiting my sister. Really nice to finally see a good beer pub in Birmingham! They have all of the local stuff on tap (good people etc) and many other great craft brews. They have a great import selection as well. Service is great even when they are really busy and the atmosphere is warm and cozy. The food is as you would expect from a pub, burgers, pizza etc. Just a great place to go if you are in Birmingham and are looking for a cool place to try some of the local and regional brews!!

Parking was sort of a pain with no clearly marked lots that were íokí. Rightfully listed as probably the best stop in Birmingham. A very nice tap list with sample flights available, an extensive bottle list, great help, knowledgable service, didnít eat but the menu looked pretty good. Maybe a touch pricy.
