El Gordo Day 2017

What: Beer Release / Tasting

When: Saturday - December 09, 2017 @ 12:00AM to Saturday - December 09, 2017 @ Midnight

Where: Good People Brewing Company, Birmingham, Alabama
El Gordo is a Russian Imperial Stout clocking in at 13.9% ABV, the legal limit in the state of Alabama. Notes of roasted malts, vanilla, bitter chocolate, and bourbon give this full-bodied stout its muscle and richness. In 2015 and 2017, Paste Magazine named it one of the top Best Non-Barrel Aged Imperial Stout in a blind taste test.

The Dia Del Gordo Festival will take place on Saturday, December 9th at Good People Brewing Co (114 14th Street South, Birmingham, AL 35233). The brewery plans to have food trucks, music, rare drafts, and other entertainment throughout the day. More details will be announced closer to date.

A limited number of 750mL bottles will be available for sale ONLY at the brewery starting on December 9th. All bottle purchases will be first come first serve. The Good People Taproom will also be offering a variety of different beers on draft for full pours and samples.

We will be announcing the full line-up of releases in the coming months.

Good People Brewing will not be able to pre-sell or ship bottles to anyone interested in acquiring one. All purchases must be made at the brewery in person with a valid ID.

For up-to-date information about Good People and more El Gordo Day information, “like” Good People Brewing Co. on Facebook or follow on Twitter or Instagram at @GPBrewing.
