Must visit craft bar in Birmingham with the added distinction of having some really, really good food. They have a very large number of taps in two different locations...thereís a great bar...a back room thatís semi outdoors and a really nice open front patio. They also have a bottle list thatís pretty decent...probably the best in the area I would guess. The place is constructed of a combination of stone and brick and wood and the effect is of a really cool old historic type of place. We really enjoyed our visit here on a recent warm night...fantastic food and great beer outside on the front patio. As we visited on a weeknight I would expect the place to be a lot more crowded on a weekend. J Clyde is a good time waiting to happen when in Birmingham.

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 couldnít 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 Alabamaís 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.
