From Beer Advocate, I tried J. Clyde's this evening. I met a former colleage their and we had a couple pints and burgers. The place is located on a neat little lane near UAB campus and is in a old building that from the outside does not look like a beer haven. Inside there are walls of stone and ornate ceiling which makes the place feel old and nostalgic. The quality of beer was good...I thought a couple beers from the tap were a little to warm, but all the beeter to taste...right. The service was very slow...mostly due to the crowd that patronizes the place. The beer selection was amazing....20+ on tap, and big bottle menu. The burger was AMAZING....really enjoyed it. Great Sweet potato fries. Over all....had 5 pints, one beer flight, two burgers, all for $50...I thought it was reasonable.
