2nd Annual Piggly Wiggly Craftly Beerly Beer Bash on Sunday, August 25
Visitors to our fine city may find it strange to hear that Piggly Wiggly and craft beer in Birmingham go hand in hand, but locals have long known this awesome truth. Where most supermarket beer sections are dominated by our country’s largest, lager producing breweries, Birmingham-area Piggly Wigglys have gone against the grain to carry fresh, quality craft beer as the majority of their beer selection. On top of that, knowledgeable staff members educate and suggest beers to customers, hold regular craft beer tastings, and even carry rare and limited offerings that you would be hard pressed to find anywhere else in the city. The Piggly Wiggly approach to craft beer is no longer an oddity; it is now one of the standards of how to promote craft beer in Birmingham.
In an effort to continue to expand their stellar service to the local craft beer scene and those that enjoy it, Piggly Wiggly’s dedicated craft beer staff will be at the pub on August 25th to hold their 2nd Annual Craftly Beerly Beer Bash! This intimate tasting on our patio will give beer lovers the rare opportunity to weed through and sample a good portion of the ever growing craft beer selection we enjoy today in Birmingham. Almost 100 hundred of the finest specialty/craft beer offerings available locally will be pouring at this event. To chat with you about all of this beer, each and every one of our local distributors will have representatives available on-site to answer any questions you may have about their featured offerings. To round it all off, there will also be giveaways and raffles throughout the event to give you the chance to go home with some pretty sweet schwag.
Tickets for this event are $18 each, and they are available at the Homewood (3000 Montgomery Highway, Homewood), Crestline (93 Euclid Ave, Birmingham), McCalla (4750 Eastern Valley Road, McCalla) and River Run (3800 River Run Dr., Mountain Brook) Piggly Wiggly locations. Your ticket gets you admission and unlimited beer samples during the event. Ticket sales end at Pig locations on Saturday, August 24. If tickets do not sell out in advance, any remaining tickets will be offered at the door day of the event. Tickets are incredibly limited and this event did sell out last year, so make sure to arrange your tickets as soon as possible. All proceeds from ticket sales go to benefit Free the Hops and their mission for better beer in Alabama.
We at The J. Clyde love our local Pigs and everything they do for craft beer in our great city. You will not be able to find a more affordable or convenient way to try this many beers in Birmingham, and we all have the great folks from Piggly Wiggly to thank. We hope that you all join us on Sunday to support their efforts and drink some really great beer in the process! See you all then!
