The elephant in the corner

Ahhh, Miss Fancy can once again quench her very large thirst

Thanks to our friends blogging over at Birmingham Terminal, we are sharing this great new logo that’s just been announced for Avondale Brewing Company, the new business opening soon on 41st Street South a few blocks north of Avondale Park.

Avondale Park used to be the site of the original Birmingham Zoo, whose most famous occupant was Miss Fancy, an elephant who appreciated bootleg whiskey during Prohibition (and why not?). So this logo, an homage to the swilling former neighbor up the street, seems very a propos.

Miss Fancy says "more beer please!"

Kudos to the owners for this exciting new development in Avondale!
