Thrillist names The J. Clyde as one of the 33 Best Beer Bars in the Country
That’s right! 33 bars in the entire country were named, and your local pub is one of them. To make this list, Thrillist says they were looking for “quality over quantity” and the type of places “where home brewers flock for inspiration and where the beer world’s best artisans roll out their experimental and hard-to-find suds.” These are just a few of the things that we strive for day in and day out, and it is incredibly rewarding to be recognized for it. Here is what Thrillist had to say about The J. Clyde:
70+ beers dominate a draught menu divided up unpretentiously by simple flavor profiles – “Tart and Funky”, “Crisp”, “Fruit and Spice” — at one of the South’s finest drinkeries… a place that, between the cobblestone streets outside and stone/brick walls inside, kind of looks like it should be full of slurring Hobbits. Luckily, the staff knows their stuff (in regard to beer, not Orcs or obscure Led Zeppelin songs). Give them a clue of what you like, then order up a flight. They’ll work their magic. They also showcase a good number of local breweries — Cahaba, Avondale, Trim Tab — and feature the city’s biggest covered patio. In a region known for its back porches, that really says something.
We would like to extend a hearty thank you to Thrillist for the recognition and kind words. We are incredibly proud to have been named alongside these amazing pubs and bars, and we highly recommend that you check out the full list.
As if our cup was not already full, it has also come to our attention that Movoto mentioned us in their “27 Things you Learn While Living in Birmingham”. There are lots of great establishments and area attractions on this list getting the recognition that they deserve, and we are proud to call them all our neighbors in this beautiful city. We owe another big thank you to Movoto for their list and the nice things they had to say about us.
Finally, we have to give a thank you to all of our patrons, friends and fans. We know that one major factor as to why we make lists such as these is because of you guys constantly spreading the word about the Clyde. We cannot thank you enough for your love and support. You guys rock!
