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.

My favorite brewery in Bham by far. Blue Collar is its feel. Where some of the other taprooms are covered up with Gen Xer's and their registered pooches, I walked in GP one day and there was an old man who had two goats on a leash. I knew I had found the place I wanted to hang out and drink beer! Good beer and an even greater staff to take care of you!

Location was near the minor league ball park. Parking available. Nice open space which connects the inside to the outside. Nice looking modern place with a nice wooden bar. I particularly liked that this drinking establishment had an area for smoking. I couldn't get a feel for the people here as I probably came around 7 pm on a Saturday at which time there were very few people. The draft list was varied but I didn't remember drinking anything that outstanding.

Visited 8/6/15 at 1pm and I was one of the few people in there which I enjoyed. Joel running the tap was friendly and helpful. I had a few brews but my favorite was Snake Handler. Good atmosphere...not too foo foo, not too industrial. A nice place that is worth a visit.

Visited while seeing the in-laws over vacation. Good beers, very friendly, casual staff. Looked like they had just opened or in middle of renovations but still open. The beer is good, the "taproom" isn't very appealing to the eye-but still VERY MUCH worth the visit. As a bonus it's located directly next door to Birmingham's AA baseball team/stadium.

This is a great downtown Birmingham brewery with a cool vibe. Located next door to the double-A baseball stadium, it is a perfect spot for a fresh, pre-game beer during the season. Currently, Good People is renovating the facility and I expect it to be even better. It can be tough to find parking for your sober driver, so be prepared for the hunt.

Not only is the place great, the beer is consistently very good. Year-round offerings will not disappoint, but look for special releases throughout the year.

One of the coolest brewery/taprooms to visit. Everything evolves around the old truck logo. Country cool. The place was pretty busy, but bartenders got to you quickly. Our tour guide ( a young lady volunteer who was a teacher by trade) really knew her stuff and made the group feel very welcome. A decent selection (but no El Gordo). The Snake Handler was terrific. Lots of TV's with sports playing.
A must when you're in Birmingham doing the beer tour.

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!
