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.
Talk about a rush of hop flavor. This beer is as hoppy and dank as the 6% to 7% IPAs that folks are standing in line for. The “session IPA” season hits full swing when the temperature rises. Great news for your liver. There have been some really good ones, but we haven’t been floored until this beer. Don’t look for a thin or watery beer in this can. JUCO is that bold hop flavor you need in an IPA that won’t leave you floating facedown in the pool after an afternoon of drinking. Think of it as adding a little “class” to your summer.
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.

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.

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 Urban Farmer cans debut this week. The brewery purchased a new can labeler, while allows the brewery to expand the can lineup more easily.
