Good People Juco Southern IPA is the latest summer seasonal from the Birmingham, Alabama brewery.
If you aren’t familiar with the term, “Juco” is short for junior college. The hop-forward offering is a quite sessionable 4.2% alcohol by volume. (Translation: Good for all-day drinking.) This beer rocks flavors of pine and lemon zest, thanks to generous doses of Columbus, Mosaic, Simcoe, and Equinox.
Scoring high grades in flavor and hoppy taste, JUCO isn’t worried about achieving a lower ABV than our flagship IPA. In fact that’s what a chill summer class is all about. This may be the best 6 beers of your life.
Good People Juco Southern IPA debuts on May 1st on draft, and 12 ounce cans in mid-May.
Hops: Columbus, Mosaic, Simcoe, Equinox
Malts: 2-Row, Vienna, and Crystal 40
Yeast: California Ale
Availability: 12oz Cans, Draft.
Debut: May, 2017
Good People Snake Handler, one of Alabama’s most well-known beers, available in cans once again.
The imperial IPA is actually a year-round offering on draft. Once a year, the Birmingham brewery cans this offering. The most common compliment by the brewery’s fans – this beer is dangerously drinkable.
Dangerously drinkable, this Double IPA brew is a spirited celebration of all things hoppy. Aromas of pine, citrus, flowers, spice, pineapple, and grassiness complement a biscuit and caramel backbone. Hands down, our most requested beer.

Good People Funk Farm Sour Blonde, the first sour/wild ale release by the Birmingham, Alabama brewery, debuts September 24th.
What you see above is the the first beer in the series – Funk Farm Sour Blonde Ale with Blackberries and Raspberries. The color is absolutely striking. Thank the hefty helping of blackberries and raspberries that this sour blonde has been spending 8 months with in French oak red wine barrels. The beer is juicy with a touch of lactic tartness – all that good that has gotten you addicted to sour beer in the first place. In short, wine, barrels, funky, sour.
Despite not distributing very far from their home, the Good People lineup is known quite well across the southeast. Having been addicted to beers from Good People like Snake Handler and Brown Ale, the Funk Farm Series has given us a new series from the deep south brewery to dream about. A fantastic first release in what is sure to be a successful, wild lineup.
Good People Funk Farm Sour Blonde Ale (Blackberries and Raspberries) debuts Saturday at the brewery in Birmingham, Alabama.
Good People Urban Farmer cans debut this week. The brewery purchased a new can labeler, while allows the brewery to expand the can lineup more easily.
Before this week, Good People Brewing had to order printed cans and wait for them to arrive. The downside of that – with so many breweries going to cans, the wait list for a new printed can is getting quite long. The line at the printer for labels? Much shorter.
Good People Urban Farmer is a traditional farmhouse ale, brewed with pale malt and a blend of saison yeasts.
…a unique blend of saison yeast strains, which lend flavor and aroma characteristics of grapefruit, pineapple, orange zest, earthiness and spiciness.
Starting the first week of September, Good People Urban Farmer starting shipping in 12 ounce cans.

This light bodied brew marries a hint of hops with a whisker of tartness for a subtle citrus flavor. Silky smooth and refreshing, it’s the perfect beer.

“We’ve been interested in sour beers and developing new beers for a couple years now. The Funk Farm series showcases the creativity and innovation of our brewers. Through experimentation, we want to explore the art of aged, mixed-fermentation sour beers,” – Jason Malone, Co-Founder and Brewmaster
The first release is a sour blonde ale aged in French oak red wine barrels for 8 months with raspberries and blackberries. This release, and future releases, will be available in the 750 milliliter bottle format.
