I visited Cahaba Brewing on a Saturday night in late May 2016. Earlier in the day I had met Andy, one of the partners, and his lovely wife. Andy invited me into the production section of the brewery a wonderful historical tour of the building. They are located in an old warehouse style building that housed a cotton gin manufacturing facility in the 1800s. When they leased the building, Andy's wife, who is an architect, designed the space for the current brewery. It's a very cool layout, with plenty of room for chatting and free skee ball!

On Saturday night, the large space was full with a mostly young crowd. What a great vibe. I was excited to see such a fun beer spot in Birmingham. They had about 10 beers on tap; I sampled most of them and felt the overall quality was decent. There was nothing real exciting, but nothing bad either. They are clearly catering to the masses, not so much to the beer geeks, which is probably a great business strategy in Alabama. Nevertheless, this is definitely a good place to visit if you are in town. It's just down the road from Hop City, which is a great stop in itself.

Cahaba was a cool little brewery in an industrial section of Birmingham. The staff was friendly and the owner took some time to tell us his story. We sampled the Blonde, Amber, Kiwi Kolsch, Single Hop IPA, Irish Stout, Rye Stout, Oka Uba IPA, Frax Double IPA, Flagship IPA, and the Belgian. I loved the IPA'a and the Belgian, my wife liked the Stouts. Definitely worth a stop and you can't beat the free Skee Ball!!

A very small brewery, perhaps a microbrewery. Not much parking spaces (but we were riding the hotel shuttle). Great prices on a flight (4 for $5) Some games over in a corner. Not many people were there at the time. The bartender was very knowledgeable and friendly. Not very exciting, but if you're looking for laid back, this is the place. Terrific beer. Glad we got to visit.
