Across from the Birmingham Barons baseball stadium, this place is in a cool part of downtown. Parking will be along the curb because of the limited parking lot. As you enter the front, you are directed to the right for beer. The bar is actually in the brewery so you feel like you are part of the environment. Lots of gigantic cable spools for tables and some christmas lights hanging everywhere.

There is a stage setup in the corner for live music on the weekends and also an outdoor area off the loading dock for friendly games of Cornhole. The beer is priced at a flat rate of $5 per pint, regardless of what you want. They had 6 beers on tap when I was there so $30 bucks to try them all. Seems a little pricey for a tasting room, however, you receive full pints and not samplers.

The coffee oatmeal stout was excellent and the best out of the group in my opinion.

What a great experience! Tasting bar right inside the brewery. The staff is a hippy-like cast of easy going but knowledgable advocates for their brewery. Service at the bar was great. The Snakehandler IPA was so good I couldn't drink anything else. Next time I will start light and work my way up so that my review is a little more complete. The brewery is equipped with a big garage door that is typically open (according to a local there). People were playing corn-hole outside. A couple of people had their dogs outside as well. Definitely a community atmosphere. The only minus I coud see is that this may get a little warm on a hot summer day. Also, make sure you grab a bite before you get there because they do not serve any food. I highly recommend going to Good People Brewing Company if you find yourself in Birmingham, AL!

Best brewery in Alabama. Period.

My favorite is their brown ale but also their pale ale is great as well. They also have a good selection of IPAs and double IPAs.

The brewery is directly across the street from the Barons minor league stadium. Great place to grab a brew before a game.

Atmosphere is great. There is a half oval shaped bar with their 5 year round offerings and 1 or 2 seasonals. All beer is $5, which is cheap for the good beer they serve. Taproom is in the main fermenting room and has high ceilings with a rustic feel to it as all the tables are made out of dark, asymmetrical wood. There's also a cool little back porch area. It's a cool place. I'll be going there regularly.

Neat place - large production warehouse with a bar in the corner. Place for bands, small outdoor area. These guys are big enough to have their own canning line.
Was there early afternoon, just a few people there. Tried snake, brown and the stout. Snake with a bit more sweetness would be close to Sucks - the 10% abv is tough to drink many though. The brown was good but needs a bit more mouth feel and to be a touch sweeter also. Tried a sample of something with a black cherry flavor - would be good barrel aged as a sour.

No food, very limited parking (I may not have known where to park) but overall a very neat place and looks very production oriented.

Don't miss this one when in town.

Stopped by yesterday for a brewery tour, as soon as we walked in we were asked if we needed anything, great service with a smile. There were 6 brews on tap, I had the Belgian Amber and the Pale Ale, both great beers, my husband had a Belgian Amber and the Coffee Oatmeal stout.
I really enjoyed my time there, this might sound weird but this is the first place I've been since my last trip home to Belgium that poured me a beer with a decent head, on purpose!
The short tour was real pleasant, the guide took his time to answer questions, being able to sip on my brew during the tour was nice too.

I wish these guys all the best, I will be back, and as always, on every trip into AL, we look for Good People!
