Good People Brewing Company

El Gordo – Their huge Russian Imperial Stout that if you haven’t tried (and their have only been 3 other kegs released of this beer before) then you are missing out. 

Brett IPA – A funky IPA brewed with Brettanomyces yeast. 

Coffee Oatmeal Stout - Big coffee flavors dominate early only to be wiped out by an enormous about of Willamette hop flavors.  Brewed with coffee from Primavera Coffee Roasters here in Birmingham, AL.

Snake Handler – A big, joyous celebration of all things hoppy.  Large flavors and aroma of pine, citrus, flowers, spice, pineapple, and grassiness complimented with a touch of biscuit and caramel backbone in this Double IPA.

Avondale Brewing Company

Belgian Pumpkin – A seasonal pumpkin beer brewed with Belgian yeast.  Just in time for Thanksgiving!

Vanillaphant Porter – Dark porter beer with a hint of vanilla sweetness to balance out the porter roastiness.

Belgian Brown – The classic brown ale with an Avondale Belgian yeast twist.

Battlefield IPA – India Pale Ale that is as aggressive as it’s name: well-hopped and packed with rich maltiness. A stellar balance of crisp bitterness and floral aromas, achieved by a god-like blend of English and American hops.

Spring Street Saison – Belgian Farmhouse Ale, brewed with a special 3 malt blend, European hops and a historic farmhouse yeast blend from the Wallonia region of Belgium.


Frankenhammer - A strong conglomeration Belgian ale aged on toasted cherry wood.

Saison de Chase – A Red Saison that is truly one of a kind in this state.

Altbier - German style amber ale, exceptionally smooth, this American version is a touch stronger than the Dusseldorf forerunner.  Alt, literally translated, is German for old, reflecting how far back this top-fermenting style goes.

Brown Bomber Uber Alt - A darker and stronger, seasonal variation on an Altbier.

Blue Pants Brewery

ESB – ESB means “Extra Special Bitter” but don’t be scared of this hoppy brew, unless you want to of course!  The classic style meets the flavor rich world of Blue Pants beers in their take on the ESB.  

Pinstripe Stout – 8.0% ABV American Imperial Stout with chocolate, coffee, and vanilla flavors.

Knickerbocker Red – Moderately hoppy, but balanced, agressive American Red Ale with a good Cascade taste and a strong malty backbone.

Back Forty

Kudzu Porter – Hoppy porter beer affectionately named after the unofficial Alabama state plant.

Truck Stop Honey Brown – Silver medal winner at the 2010 Great American Beer Festival, it’s a medium bodied English brown ale brewed with Alabama Wildflower Honey, roasted malts and fresh hops.

Straight to Ale

Montesano Maibock -  Lighter in color than other Bock beers and often has a significant hop character with a noticeable alcohol around the same as a traditional Bock.

Olde Towne Pumpkin – Pumpkin Ales are typically mild, with little to no bitterness, a malty backbone, with some spice often taking the lead.

Wernher Von Brown Ale – Named after the preeminent astronautics engineer, this luscious brown ale is sweet and malty up front with hints of toast and chocolate in the finish. East Kent Goldings provide a slight bitterness to this English-style ale.
