Alabama: Good People Brewing Company

Location: Birmingham, Ala.

What started out as a couple of home brewers in a garage turned into Alabama-based business — and a popular one, at that — in 2007. With eight year-round brews and another eight seasonals, what really gets people in the door is the tap room and constant music lineup.

Beer to Try: The locals’ favorite is the flagship American Pale Ale, the "bring your lunch pale to work" kind of beer made with Cascade hops and a balance of malts.
