The motto of this Birmingham brewhouse is "What do you have to lose? Come on by and have a few," and we couldn't agree more. Avondale is housed in a historic building that at once used to be a saloon, a pharmacy, and a brothel. This brewery's roots in Prohibition and the industrial brewing during the early 1920s' and 1930s' informs their beer making process today. They make bold, hoppy concoctions named after and inspired by local history of Birmingham and the Avondale neighborhood.
