Notes:
Druid City Brewing company is a shining example of the power of the proverbial bar napkin sketch, and the success that can come out of it. Brewery co-owners Bo Hicks and Elliott Roberts started getting involved with brewing craft beer about 5 years ago. After so long, the friends discussed how cool it would be for Tuscaloosa, Ala. to have its own brewery. “Eventually we just called each other’s bluff, and we made a business plan, found some investors, and we got the brewery goin,” said Hicks. Druid City’s first legal beer was brewed on November 23, 2012, which was sold at Egans. That same night Grammy nominated four-piece “Alabama Shakes” played under an alias name for the night.

After about a year and a half of brewing and completing the necessary background checks from the FBI, the Druid City Taproom opened for business on July 11. Now, Druid City can be found all across the state, and our taproom is open 7 days a week! Now that you know our story, come on down to Druid City and tell us yours. We’d love to have you.

Cool hole in the wall. Snacks available. Great beers. Live music at night. Outside patio. Funky vibe. Real vinyl on the turntable.

They brew the best beers in Tuscaloosa by a mile. My personal favorite is the Lamplighter IPA. I can't get enough of it. Bo and Elliott are some of the nicest guys you will meet. The place is small so it can get crowded sometimes, but if you are in Tuscaloosa I would definitely recommend a stop here.

Great beers brewed by great people. Bo and Elliott are very welcoming, easy-going, and fun guys to be around. The tap room is hard to find - which makes it more unique in my opinion. They usually have vinyl playing and everyone is in a terrific mood.
