Relaxed vibe, great view of stage- small enough to feel intimate for music. Good beer and hard seltzer, enough bars, decent number of loos, parking not too tough. Gets great bands!

Went to see Manchester Orchestra. This was an ideal venue. It was my favorite show of theirs and I think it's because of Avondale. Sound was perfect. There was plenty of space to move around. Just loved it.

Went in the mid-afternoon on a weekday so the place was only populated by a few folks. Bartender was quick, helpful, but not hovering. Very interesting building. Walked out behind the place where there is a small outdoor concert venue. Standing room only, although there...More

This brewery is located in a turning hip area of Birmingham - Avondale. They have great beers. My all time favorite from here is the Vanillaphant. It's a vanilla porter. Yummy! They have a great inside bar and outside bar and lots of outdoor seating...More

The food was good... the service was good and the beer was good. Would recommend this place for anyone, including families because there were places the little ones could play.

We went to the outdoor area at Avondale for the St. Patty's event, it was FANTASTIC. I really love the feel of the outdoor seating area and being able to get beers on tap. There were tons of people with dogs, which made it extra...More

On a dreary, wet, afternoon, I stopped by the brewery on the way to Atlanta. My intent was to have a pint and begin my trip. Being the only customer, I started a conversation with the bartender, Taylor and decided to stay for another round....More

We all got flights and nobody was disappointed. Had plenty of sours, IPAs, and “easy drinking” choices. Typical tap room atmosphere. Enjoyed it and would go again.

Not really a great deal to say, great Stout in your average brewpub hipster environment. Bartender at first seemed a little standoffish, but he definitely was not, and it turned into a nice visit. They need a KITCHEN, other than that, glad I went.

It’s not a huge area, but big enough for a decent crowd. I would estimate maybe 150-200 packed tightly.

I don’t think so. They are a brewery. It might be worth a call to see if they could make any recommendations for you. Or....give one of their milder ales a try. The servers are quite knowledgeable and could give you... More
