What a delight it was to spend the best part of an evening here! We came bearing greetings for Anne, who was in charge of the bar, from Brock who was in charge of the bar at Avondale when we were there and our suspicions were confirmed - this city is indeed full of good people and has a thriving new craft beer culture. The brewery is in a big new industrial building at the end of the Railroad Park and theyíve somehow made a very nice, cosy tap room in one corner. The horseshoe shaped bar has lampshades fashioned from small casks and the tables are giant cable reels set on their sides. The beers were very good indeed and we were well looked after. I donít think they serve food normally but there was a lot of still-wrapped and untouched food that had been brought in for an earlier event in the function room and customers in the bar were invited to polish it off, so we did our bit. Good people, good beer, good food and good company - highly recommended.

Good people was one of the first taprooms open in Birmingham and still remains one of the best in the city. They have ridiculously cheap beer at $5 for any beer of your choosing including the very high gravity beers. They used to have a nice side yard but that may have been taken over by a neighboring brewpub....A must see while in Bham.

These are fine people making and serving fine beverages. As luck would have it, a minor league baseball stadium was built directly across the street. Good People are handling their expansion by ensuring the home state is well supplied before venturing into other markets. That said, they have just begun distributing to Nashville and apparently cannot send enough. I look forward to more expansion and fine beverages from another of my home stateís breweries.

There are not enough points possible on the total score to really do these guys justice! We came in as out of towners and immediately felt like we helped open the place, even got 4 tickets to see the barons game across the street for free from the barkeep!. Bartender was great, your drinking beer IN the brewery, not at a bar! This is how a brewery should work.

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.
