American Craft Beer Week: Friday, Alabama's Beermuda Triangle
Each year, The J. Clyde has enjoyed being a part of the national celebration that is American Craft Beer Week (ACBW), and we are confident that this year will be the best yet. ACBW will be recognized May 13-19, 2013 and offers an exciting opportunity for small and independent craft brewers and the community of better beer retailers to celebrate the ever advancing beer culture here in the U.S. Plus, tens of thousands of today’s beer beginners, beer enthusiasts, and hard core beer geeks make time to toast the week. Make sure to keep an eye on our website and Facebook page for details on the events we have planned for each day of ACBW at the pub.
There just so happens to be an area at the heart of our beautiful state that makes a perfect triangle. At each point, you can find one of our state’s newest breweries: Patriot Joe’s Ale of Anniston, Railyard Brewing Company of Montgomery, and Druid City Brewing Company of Tuscaloosa. Since the offerings of these breweries do not leave their area too often, we will feature a handful of them at this event on Friday (taplist available below) in hopes of wetting your curiosity enough to maybe inspire an Alabama beer pilgrimage to visit them on their home turf. Also, each brewery will have representatives available to discuss with you their beers and what you can expect from them in the future.
This is the perfect opportunity for you to experience a few of our breweries that are tucked away a bit in our Beermuda Triangle. We hope that you all join us on Friday to spread some love to these great brewers and raise a glass with them at the pub!
