BIRMINGHAM'S HISTORIC BREWERY
There's nothing better than good stories told over great beer. That's why at Avondale Brewing Company we've named all of our beers after the folklore of Avondale, Alabama. We craft our brews with the same unique character and style as the stories they are named after. A collaboration between Coby and Hunter Lake, Avondale Brewery is a locally owned and operated brewery in the heart of the Deep South.
A LIVE PLACE FOR LIBATIONS
Avondale Brewing Company's historic building has a rich and infamous history, having been home to a plethora of businesses. Over the years the building has been home to a post office, a firehouse, a bank, and for several decades was also a popular local bar known as the Long Branch Saloon. The upper floor of the building was at one point a secret bordello, servicing the saloon's patrons below. Legend has it that the building is haunted by a former lady of the brothel, now known to the current occupants affectionately as Meredith.
"SPRING" STREET
Once upon a time, Avondale was inhabited by Native Americans who were drawn by the grear spring coming out of what would later be known as Avondale Cave. The spring gushed forth the purest water that could be found for miles around. Years later when the city of Avondale was formed, the main thoroughfare (now 41st Street) became known as Spring Street.
A UNIQUE STORY WITH EVERY BEER
Head down to 41st Street to hear the lively stories served up with every brew. It's sure to be a trunk raising good time.

An inviting taproom perfect for happy hour or a Saturday of football makes Avondale Brewing a solid pick for grabbing a local brew. But it's the spacious back patio, complete with its own bar, that makes it a frequent hotspot in Birmingham's most up-and-coming neighborhood.
