Cask Garden
Some of The J. Clyde’s favorite local and Alabama brewers will be creating special casks & firkins for their tasting station including so far – Cahaba Brewing Company, Ghost Train Brewing Company, Rocket Republic Brewing Company, Straight to Ale, and Tallulah Brewing Company

Wine Station
Whole Foods Market Birmingham will be joining us again with wines to taste along with your brews.

“Penny a pour”
What is this? State law and ABC regulations do not allow Beer Garden to give “unlimited free samples.” The ticket price gets you admission to the tasting event. Once inside you will be charged $0.01 for each beer sample. We utilize the honor system so you can leave a quarter in one bucket and enjoy 25 samples.

Mr. Mancave’s football game broadcast!
We’re featuring the important football games of the day thanks to our returning partner, Mr. Mancave, and their killer TV set up! So, don’t let football keep you away. Instead, toast touchdowns with us and a tasty craft beer.

Bring rain gear if the weather looks scattered.
