The Bearded Lady is a bit of a departure from the Good People norm. While most of our beers are robust, bold, and hoppy, the Bearded Lady is smooth and drinkable. Never fear, it still has the quality craftsmanship you expect from Good People. Our take on the Wheat Beer, a perennial favorite, we hope to have made a beer that is both flavorful and refreshing. The light body is complemented with just a hint of hops and just a twinge of tartness that give the Bearded Lady a subtle citrus flavor that leaves you wanting more. While we were not trying to reinvent the wheel or change the history of beer, we wanted to make a beer that was refreshing and highly drinkable for the warm Alabama summer, yet not sacrifice the integrity of anything with the Good People label. This is a beer we would be proud to hoist over our lawnmowers and say, “Today grass…you are mine!” With the Bearded Lady, we hope we have done just that. We hope you think so too.

Can: Pours hazy, light yellow with a frothy white head. Lemon, grapefruit aroma. Taste is weak...orange,grapefruit-peel, wheat malt....very watery. Comes across more like a weak APA than a wheat. Pretty disappointing.

Hazy yellow, with a lumpy white head. Lots of banana and bubblegum in the aroma. Taste is more or less typical wheat beer, with a extra whiff of vanilla. Seems to be a bit stale, as well.
