Good People Muchacho Mexican Style Lager is set to debut year-round

Good People Muchacho Mexican Style Lager officially debuts year-round.

Lagers aren’t limited to the big breweries anymore. The demand for craft lagers grew in 2017, and we doubt 2018 will be any different. Tack on a new Vienna lager (aka Mexican-style lager) out of Birmingham, Alabama courtesy of Good People Brewing. ‘Muchacho‘ has begun hitting shelves.

According to the brewery, the initial taproom release of Muchacho as a small/test batch was tremendous, prompting not only the upgrade to cans but year-round status.

“We are really excited to be offering this beer year round, Muchacho was a hit in the taproom when we first released it, and we thought it would be a nice style to add to our growing profile.” – Adam Klein, Head Brewer

Malts: Pilsner, Vienna, Dextrin, Flaked Corn

Good People Juco Southern IPA is big on hops & low on ABV

Good People Juco Southern IPA cans

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.

Style: IPA
Hops: Columbus, Mosaic, Simcoe, Equinox
Malts: 2-Row, Vienna, and Crystal 40
Yeast: California Ale

Availability: 12oz Cans, Draft.
Debut: May, 2017

4.2% ABV

Good People Snake Handler

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.

Hops: Columbus, Warrior, Cascade, Simcoe, Chinook
Malts: 2-Row, Specialty Malts

Good People Funk Farm Sour Blonde

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 Urban Farmer ships this week

Good People Urban Farmer

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.

Style: Saison
Availability: 12oz Cans, Draft.
Debut: September, 2016
