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!

I don't really love the beer all that much but the brewpub itself is excellent

Just an awesome venue. Giant projector televisions, outdoor beer garden (dog friendly) and a ton of indoor space to sit in air conditioning with friends.
I flew in for a work trip and this was my first stop on a football Sunday. Man, am I glad I made that decision. industrial but friendly feel. I will be back every time I am with an hour of this place.

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.
