Since first opening their doors in 2008, the folks behind Good People Brewing Company have endured “thousands of hours, hundreds of hiccups, [and] two abandoned day jobs” in order to turn a dream into reality. With a portfolio boasting beers such as Snake Handler Double IPA, Coffee Oatmeal Stout and El Gordo Una Stout Imperial, the hard work ultimately paid off as the brewery steadily grew to become what is now Alabama’s oldest and largest brewery. Although they have established themselves as a standard of excellence for craft beer in Alabama, Good People has earned the respect of the craft beer community by never forgetting their struggle and humble beginnings. Lately, their success has led to their beers becoming available in five states outside of Alabama, “with four of them happening in 2016 alone.” This trend will continue into the New Year as Georgia will become Good People’s sixth out-of-state expansion beginning the third week of January 2017.
“We’re finally headed to Georgia!” says Michael Sellers, co-owner and co-founder of Good People Brewing Company. “This has been a long time coming. After 9 years of business and honing our craft, we now have the opportunity to come to Georgia.”
On Monday, January 23, Good People Brewing Company will begin a steady roll-out in Georgia by initially entering Atlanta with a series of launch events and promotions. With United Distributors handling all distribution responsibilities, the brewery will enter the market with several of their craft beer offerings. For updates on events and what beers to expect at launch, “like” Good People Brewing Co. on Facebook or follow on Twitter or Instagram at @GPBrewing. Until then, Georgia beer fans just need to settle in and prepare for the awesome that Good People is about to send their way. Prost!
