Good People and great beer! See what I did there…(Bham Now)

Now it’s getting serious..

The second most-commented brewery is Good People Brewing Company!

I totally agree with Good People being in the top 2, it is one of my favorite breweries in town, too! It is such a comfortable environment with a ton of outside seating and yard games.

If you go to the Baron’s game it is basically right at the ticket booth!
