The brewery is across the street from the AA Birmingham Barons stadium. I have been here multiple times and it is a good atmosphere to grab a beer and something from a food truck before a game. The entrance room is air conditioned, however, the taproom is not. It is a pleasant place in the spring and fall but gets awfully hot in the summer. Parking is a bit of an issue sometimes and you may have to walk a ways to get to the brewery. Overall a good place to go for a beer. Bring your dog!

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.

Stop #425 on my world brewery tour.

Visited around 7 on a Friday in Spring. Family en route to the Florida panhandle and overnight-ed it Birmingham. First stop was at Avondale and wanted to hit GP on the way back as it was close to the hotel.

A person at Avondale raved about the DIPA at good people so I had to check it out. I suppose it was good for Alabama standards, but I prefer my DIPA's dryer with less crystal/roasted malt.

Good People had a bunch of stuff for our kids to mess with in the smallish courtyard (compared to Avondale). It was also nice that you could drink indoors in the shadow of the stainless steel.

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!
