Alabama Beer Flight 1: Birmingham

Over the past few years craft breweries have planted their stake on Alabama. This summer we will be hopping around the state sharing our favorite breweries with you. First up: Beermingham (aka Birmingham!).

 

 

 

Cahaba Brewing

You’ll know them by: Their Ode to Birmingham’s Cahaba River

A perfect spot for: Getting competitive with friends for their Trivia Tuesdays.

Bring your: A-game. This brewery is known for their multiple Skee Ball machines, as well as giant Jenga and multiple classic arcade games.

Try: OKA UBA IPA, an IPA named after the Cahaba River loaded with Columbus hops

 

Good People Brewing Company

You’ll know them by: A yellow truck and the disclaimer “legally brewed since 2008:” Good People was one of Alabama’s brewing pioneers.

A perfect spot for: A mini-lesson in craft brews from the knowledgeable bartenders.

Bring your: Baseball glove. Regions Field, an award-winning ballpark and home of the Birmingham Barons, is right across the street.

Try: The Snake Handler, a double IPA with notes of pine, citrus, flowers, spice, pineapple and caramel.

 

Red Hills Brewing Company 

You’ll know them by: Being the first brewery over the mountain.

A perfect spot for: Relaxing after a nice dinner + dessert combo from neighbors, Little Donkey and Steel City Pops.

Bring your: Appetite. Red Hills sits adjacent to two Birmingham originals, Little Donkey and Steel City Pops. So grabs your snacks to enjoy them while sipping on a cold brew. Kids welcome! While you’re sipping, they can enjoy the kids play area.

Try: Homewood Hefeweizen, a classic German Breakfast Ale that balances a cloudy but light feel with a low-hop.

 

Trim Tab Brewing

You’ll know them by: Their new-kid-on-the-block buzz.

A perfect spot for: An ice-cold pint after perusing nearby Pepper Place Saturday Market.

Bring your: Friends. This brewery stocks plenty of games, from Jenga to checkers, for groups of two to 12.

Try: Cucumber Saison, a light and refreshing warm-weather brew.

 

Avondale Brewing Co.

You’ll know them by: Miss Fancy the elephant, named after a real pachyderm from the early 1900s that lived at the Avondale Zoo after being won from the circus in a poker game.

A perfect spot for: Catching live music outdoors or chowing down on local flavor. Saw’s Soul Kitchen and Post Office Pies are nearby, and takeout is allowed in the brewery.

Bring your: Dog. Plenty of outside space and an outdoor bar make this an ideal spot for man and man’s best friend.

Try: Miss Fancy’s Tripel, a smooth, golden Belgian ale “brewed for humans but strong enough for elephants.”
