Situated in a former industrial area of Birmingham, this brewery and taproom is a must visit. They have a large indoor bar and an even larger outdoor area that’s dog-friendly. The brewery has at least 15 beers on tap, ranging in style from saisons to dark porters. The beers are delicious and the staff is very friendly. They have multiple TVs to watch sports and they have to host bands and other events. If you ever find yourself in downtown Birmingham, give this place a try. You’ll have fun.

Stop #424 on my world brewery tour.

Visited around 4:30 on a Friday in Spring. Family en route to the Florida panhandle and overnight-ed it Birmingham.

Wonderful outdoor courtyard with tables and people and dogs and kids and a bar and a stage and some games for kids to mess with (corn hole and hula hoops). I had all the beers and they were all very well done. Surprised to see a triple as the main house beer. Very well done and too easy to drink. Only downside to visit was when I joked with the indoor bartender that he was too busy to pour a flight he agreed so I had to settle with pints of each beer.

Carried in good BBQ/soul food from a place two doors down.

Met lots of friendly people.

Great brewery in a hip location. They cannot serve food by law, but always have food trucks and there are several options on the block to eat. I would recommend Saws and PO Pies, both are top notch. Overall the brewery has a huge selection the the venue is very spacious now that they finished outside. I like some of their beers, but the majority seem bland to me. I would recommend Vanillaphant Porter and Ms. Fancy's Trippel, both are solid. You can find their beer in lots of restaurants, growler, and in package around town, but I would recommend going directly to the source first.
