There is a an elephant theme to Avondale Brewing Co. in downtown Birmingham, Alabama. The reason dates back over a hundred years. Local legend says a local circus owner lost a game of cards, and Avondale won “Miss Fancy” the elephant. The building that now holds the brewery has as much history as the city, once housing a bank, a post office, firehouse and saloon – with a purported brothel. Even more local legend states the the brewery is haunted by “Meredith,” a previous resident of said house of ill repute.
With all this rich and interesting history at Avondale’s fingertips, it made sense to honor it with beer. A-dale’s lineup is quite diverse, which includes Battlefield IPA, Spring Street Saison, and Miss Fancy’s Tripel, and even more fun seasonals like No Joka Mocha and Strawberry Kolsch. Many of these coming to bottles this year.

The Saison is brewed with our proprietary house yeast, a 4 malt blend and traditional Slovenian hops. Our special brewing process along with the combination of the finest ingredients creates a refreshing and satisfying brew with no equal. True to style this unfiltered ale has a coppery golden color with a slight red hue and a rich malty backbone that you’re sure to fall in love with
