If you didn’t know already, you can get food delivered to your home, work and even Birmingham breweries by Waitr. Here’s everything you need to know including 4 Birmingham breweries that are food delivery friendly + what eats to order and new brews recently released. Oh, and Pro Tip: Make sure to use code “BHAMNOW” for free delivery when you order from Waitr. You’re welcome.
1. Trim Tab Brewing Co. in Lakeview
Recently Voted Birmingham’s Best Brewery for the 2nd year in a row for the Best of Bham Awards, Trim Tab is obviously doing a lot of things right. They offer inside + outside seating, the tap room is spacious and cozy, and they are pup friendly—a BIG plus for me, personally.
The only thing they’re not doing? Serving food. But they are in very close range to some of the best food options in Birmingham’s Lakeview District. Think about all the yum that can be brought right to your Trim Tab table: Sky Castle, BABALU, Slice and so many more.
What to Eat: Hattie B’s Hot Chicken
Must Try Menu Item: You can’t go wrong with chicken tenders, fries and mac n’ cheese from Hattie B’s. I’m a mild gal, myself, but you can order them at whatever temp your heart (or taste buds) desire. | Cost: $10.13
What to Drink:
Already making plans to stop by this weekend? Make sure to check out some of their new beers coming this month and early next month including:
- The Blueberry Breakfast Hero Imperial Doughnut Stout
- A new edition of their Beach Club Series: ZOMBIE—inspired by the “zombie” tiki cocktail
- And their Imperial Holiday Now in 16oz cans with higher ABV in early November
2. Slag Heap Brewing Co. in Trussville
Located in Trussville’s “Quad One” development, Slag Heap has been open now for a little over a year, and are already a favorite of locals for many reasons. They are family, pup and food delivery friendly—A+ all around. Oh, and their beer’s pretty good too.
Owner and brewer for 25+ years, Joe Meadows was winning awards for his brews even before Slag Heap opened in 2018. And they might not sell food, but they are in the vicinity of some drool-worthy eats like Mister Taco, Hot Spot, Gyros Cafe and more that you can order with Waitr.
What to Eat: Rock N’ Roll Sushi
Must Try Menu Item: The Michael Jackson Roll is *chef’s kiss* good. It consists of tempura shrimp and cream cheese, then the whole roll is fried and topped with crabmeat and crunchy flakes. | Cost: $13.20
What to Drink:
Their beers change seasonally, so don’t miss their new fall beers out now including:
- Their Marzen Lager
- Lil Weezy German Weizenboch
- And their newest beer, the Coco Loco Coconut Stout
3. Cahaba Brewing in Avondale/Woodlawn
Cahaba Brewing has been open in Continental Gin Industrial Park on 5th Ave S since 2016, and it’s become a hub for so many in the Avondale/Woodlawn area and beyond. They have a lot to offer: plenty of indoor and outdoor space, activities to keep ya entertained (board games, skee-ball, cornhole, etc.) and more. The only thing missing are the eats!
Of course, we have to give Tropicaleo, their next-door-neighbors, a shout out. They deliver their *delicious* Puerto Rican menu to the taproom. But if you’re craving something different, you still have options. Cahaba is right down the road from some of the best eats in Birmingham like Cookie Dough Magic, Post Office Pies (recently named as one of the 30 best pizzerias in the U.S. by USA Today) and more.
What to Eat: MELT
Must Try Menu Item: The Buffalo Chicken Sandwich, fries and Miss Fancy’s ranch. Name a better trio—I’ll wait. | Cost: $11.00
What to Drink:
Cahaba is known for their work in the community and their heart for giving back through their brews. A we love that their new beers are all attached to a good cause. Here’s what’s new this month:
- A new rendition of their DD’s Cherry Hibiscus Sour, where a portion of sales benefit the Breast Cancer Research Center of Alabama
- Lemon Drop In, a Belgian Pale Ale in collaboration with Faith Skate Supply, available in 6 packs and on draft at their release party on 10/13. You can also get a custom skate deck from artist John Lytle Wilson to celebrate the release. (!!!)
- And their newest available on draft, the L. Kay Double IPA, brewed in loving memory of Linda Kay Fife using the 2019 Ales for ALS blend. *A portion of sales will be donated to Ales for ALS to support their efforts to put an end to ALS.
4. Good People Brewing Co.
Good People, located in Birmingham’s Parkside district, is one of the best hangs in the Ham. They have indoor and outdoor seating options, are pup friendly and you can get food delivered to the tap room.
They usually have a food truck, but if it’s not your jam, you have A LOT to choose from. Think Mile End, Green Acres, The Craft Burger and more. And you never have to leave your beer behind.
What to Eat: Momma Goldberg’s
Must Try Menu Item: Momma’s Love Sandwich. No explanation needed. | Cost: $5.99
What to Drink:
No new beers this month, but don’t miss your chance to try the fall beers they already released:
- Their limited release Oktoberfest beer out now
- The Po’ Folks brew with @nappyroots and @beeredblackman from @hopcitybirmingham
- And make sure to ask about their “tap room” only beers exclusive to the brewery!
