They may have only opened their doors in 2007, but thanks to a long tenure of strict beer laws in Alabama, Good People Brewing Company is the oldest brewery in the state. The very first batches were brewed in the garage as a labor of love, but now ten different styles can be found in more than forty Birmingham bars. And if you re really thirsty, go straight to the source have a drink at their taproom or take a weekend tour of the brewery. It s hard for me to think about what Birmingham was like before
Good People. I just can t imagine a world without this beer. Lauren M. Innisfree 710 29th St S 205-252-4255 BIRMINGHAM
Large booths line one side of this Irish-style pub, flanked on either side by a dance floor and a dart wall. Polaroid photos of patrons line the walls, giving it a neighborhood feel. Try the back patio on a crowded night, where they often set up an addi- tional bar. Live music Thursday through Saturday. It s a great Irish pub. My friends and I love to grab a Guinness and see a band here. Tyler W.

Birmingham s newest rock n roll venue is a much-needed addition to an already vibrant music scene. This 1300-capac- ity space brings in some of the best touring bands on the planet to grace the main stage, and two smaller stages provide the perfect setting for local bands, receptions and other events. Stop by the full-service restaurant for a bite to eat before your next concert. This venue is exactly what was missing from Birmingham. Not too big, but big enough to see some fantastic bands at a great price. Johnny S.
