To reiterate what the previous posts had to say, I was impressed with what The J Clyde has to offer. Very cool setting, especially if wanting to enjoy a game.
The server was very knowledgeable as to the selection that is offered and turned me on to the Heavy Seas Small Craft Warning. Ended up stocking my fridge with it after having tasted it.
The only food we ordered was the fried dill pickles which are a great appetizer to enjoy while partaking in some beverages. Much better than some freaking Butterfish, which is a terrible mixture with a fine brew!
Given the selection, setting, staff, and service I will be visiting this place again. The location is neat given the fact that there are other bars in the vicinity.

Great selection of beers on tap and in bottles. Bartenders are knowledgeable. They do flights if you want to try a wide variety, just let them know what you like and they'll make you an interesting selection to try. Food is great, but a little on the pricy side. Try the humus it's fantastic!

This is not the type of place I would expect to find in Birmingham, Alabama.
Met a friend here for a late lunch in route to New Orleans and I was very pleasantly surprised. Very good selection of beer (I say that after coming back from a summer in Brussels) and not terribly expensive (aside from a few things, namely the Belgian beers). I had a flight that was pretty reasonably priced in relation to the selection and a very good burger. Had a recommendation for something from a bartender at the Mellow Mushroom around the corner, but I forgot the name. Regardless, I'd stick with the sandwiches or burgers. And add goat cheese to whatever you get. Pleasant atmosphere, nice waitstaff and bartender, cool interior. Wasn't too packed at 2-4 PM when I was there, but there were a few regulars, all of whom seemed nice enough.
If you're in the area, you definitely have to try it out.

Great place for great beer selection and quality. Food was average, but everything else about this place was amazing. Definitely try one of the cask beers if you go here - a unique experience that you don't find many places. Had my first World-Class beer here when traveling for work.

Great place to hang out and enjoy some beer and food with some friends. This is the first place I ever tried a cask style beer. I definitely recommend trying a cask beer as it is a unique beer experience. I love the pub feel of the place. Our server was knowledgeable of the beer selection. Ask for the beer list as the selection is extensive.
