Our New Beer Menu!

21 June 2009 No Comment

Ya’ll may have seen our new menus lately that incorporate ALL the NEW beer that’s been coming to Alabama over the past 3 weeks.  Well, I’ve recently added ALL the draught beers to that menu format including such favorites as Rogue Brutal Bitter and Good People Brown Ale.  In the future, look for a description for each beer to be included on the menu along with an “Index of Beers” up front for those of you who know what you might be looking for and don’t need a Good People Snake Handler or Terrapin Rye Pale Ale or Yeti Imperial Stout or Bigfoot Barleywine explained to you.

My goal is to educate folks who are “new” to beer..well craft beer.  This menu is a step in that direction.  In the coming days, we will include all the OLD bottle beers in the database that populates this menu.  This format should be a benefit to our customers and I will include this information on our website as well.

It will continue to be the responsibility of our servers to explain the beers to ya’ll.  It will be my responsibility to strive to find folks to work at The J. Clyde who love beer as much as I want you – our customers – to love beer.

I’ve also added a bit of descriptive language at the front of the menu.  It is noted below and is also available permanently here on our website.  A list of beers is available by clicking here or by selecting New Beers from the Bar menu.


Menu of Beer
Cask Conditioned Ales – $8 for 20-ounce Imperial Pint and $5 for 10-ounce Half Imperial Pint
The J. Clyde is (was) the only place in Alabama to currently serve cask-conditioned ales. This is beer as it would have been served before modern technologies of refrigeration and forced carbonation! Served at cellar temperature (50 – 55 F) with a beer engine in a traditional British Nonic Glass.
A new cask is tapped each Friday and is served until the last pint is pumped. Ask your server which cask conditioned ales are available now.

Flights of Beer
We also have flights of 5 beers. You choose the beers from our draught list; and
we serve you 5 four-ounce steins.
Each >6% ABV selection is an additional $2.

Weekly Beer Specials
Monday: All Draught Beers Greater than 6% ABV Are $5 (Limit two per customer)
Tuesday and Thursday: All Draught Beers Less than 6% ABV Are Half Price

We take extra efforts to keep the correct glassware for each beer that we serve.
Please help us by returning glassware to servers. Without the glassware, we can’t serve the beer!

We will sell you a glass from your favorite brewery though! Glasses start at $5 each.
