This brewery is located in a warehouse just outside downtown Birmingham (though walkable). As a previous poster pointed out, they are doing construction around the area (it looks like they are building some sort of stadium), so driving right to the brewery is a little problematic. Inside, it is a wide open space with all the brewing equipment pretty much right in front of you. There is a bar and some tables as well. There were about 6 or 7 taps, mostly your typical styles (stout, pale ale, brown, etc) and there were a couple of higher gravity beers I remember. Pretty decent beers, nothing too standout. It is a nice place to relax with a beer and definitely a place for beer travelers in Birmingham. (My numbers may be a little lower than other raters, but I quite enjoyed this place)

Hard to get to right now - the street in front is closed for construction. But I made it, and I am glad I did. The bar/tasting room is just part of the warehouse, which gives you an unobstructed view of the brewery itself - tons of stainless on display. Running 7 taps with a taster flight of all seven for $15. Beers range from Meh to pretty darn good, and the bartender was friendly and knew his stuff. Once again I had a great time tasting and chatting. Good People is Good People.

Every time I have been in the service has been good, the beers are great, and they have a chalk board that specifies all their beers on tap.

Like other breweries in Alabama, the Good People Brewing Company is trying to separate from the food industry so it can distribute itís beer. The restaurant that sells Good People Brewing Companyís brew, 5 Points Grill, is having new management and beer line issues.
They had bad service the night I went, and the beer selection was down to two: Amber Ale, and Oatmeal Stout. The waiter said they were having "line mix up issues." The Oatmeal stout had an obvious infection, so it makes me think the "line mixup" is actually an infection in their beer lines. The Oatmeal Stout I was served was also very flat.
Hopefully the Good People at GPBC can help the people at 5 Points clean up their act.
I feel for the brewing industry in Alabama. While the rest of the country is having double digit growth in the beer industry, Alabama is not due to "distribute OR serve" and other brew laws.
