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.

Wow what a place. Tap room in the brewing facility gave a great vibe to being in Alabama to a tourist. Did a flight and liked the IPA immensely and considered buying a few sixers to take home but didn't because I was stupid. Their strong beers were also good, and the service could not have been better. If I find myself in Birmingham again, this is the first place I will go. Not only that, they had a great role in changing the beer scene in that part of the woods so give them a try, I'm sure I did.

Located, as many breweries are, in a somewhat run-down and industrial area, the brewery is in a large warehouse. There is a small front bar at the entrance, but we were directed to the right and into the main building area. There is a large semicircular bar in the corner, where we promptly sat down and ordered a sampler to share. Brewers were at work at the other end of the building, listening to loud music that made it somewhat difficult to hear...

They also had a small swag shop in the corner where I bought a tin tacker shaped like a licence plate for my basement bar. Large wooden cable spindles were placed on their sides for additional seating and a small stage took up another area. An open garage door led out of the building and to the side with additional seating, green space and even the old battered yellow truck that is their mascot.

A chalk line lay across the top of my sampler tray with the names of the beers scribbled in. The beers were all above average. I really enjoyed the brown ale and the Mumbai Rye (a very hoppy and spicy rye ale.) The pale ale and IPA were respectable but not quite as balanced as some of my favorites from Surly, Steel Toe, Odell, etc. The Bearded Lady wheat was fairly tasty as well. My bill was served to me in a Good People IPA can--very fun. I liked my visit to the brewery and would recommend trying them out as a shining example of a craft brewery carving a space in a difficult and traditionally non-craft market.

Best brewery in Birmingham in a prime location right across from Regions Field. They don't have a massive selection of beer, but what they have is good. Tap room is in the brewery, so it can be loud and hot/cold depending on season. Parking is not great in this area and can be a pain. Overall it is worth a trip but don't plan on eating there because local laws don't allow them to serve food. Sometimes the food trucks post up there.

Located right across the street from the Birmingham Barons baseball stadium. A really cool brewery. The taproom is located right in the middle of the brewery and then they have a lot of wooden rustic tables around the taproom and off to the side. They have a large projection screen on the wall that I assume they show games on. The also have some large doors on one side of the building that they open up. It was a nice day when I toured the brewery and people were outside playing cornole. The day I was there they had the IPA, Brown, Bearded Lady, Pale Ale, Coffee Stout, El Gordo were on tap the day I was there. I was told that the they ran out of the Snack Halder the night before which was a little disappointing but regardless I enjoyed the brewery. The service was great as well.

Visited on a Monday afternoon so it was pretty quiet. The taproom is right there in the brewery so you can see what is going on. They have all beers on tap...but no growlers or bottles. El Gordo was terrific and one of the best stouts I have ever had. The staff were very nice and helpful. This place is great for Birmingham and Alabama in general. It brings them closer to beer par!

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!
