Over 40 beers on draft, hundreds in bottles and an additional one to three cask-conditioned ales with traditional British Beer Engines – the only Alabama bar to boast such devotion to suds. It sits on charming Cobb Lane in Five Points and there's plenty of good late-night pub grub to wash down the beer.
You'll need to ask a local for directions to this tin-roof makeshift backyard shack in a dicey neighborhood in Bessemer, one of the only truly authentic juke joints left outside Mississippi. Gip, a gravedigger by day, opens the doors on Saturday only, when the place is shoulder-to-shoulder with blues fans come one come all. It's BYOB but there's no need – free moonshine is passed around in Mason jars, permitted by a legal loophole in Alabama that says it must be given away, not sold.
