In less than five years, Good People Brewing Company has expanded sales across the state of Alabama, moved into the burgeoning foodie market of Nashville, Tennessee and now is opening a taproom in Birmingham’s brand new $200 million dollar airport terminal.

Good People founder and partner Michael Sellers says the new airport taproom is a continuation of a rapid growth curve. “Birmingham and our other markets have been really good to us. When we went from selling draft only through bars and restaurants to also selling cans in grocery stores it was big for us. Opening a tap room in this beautiful new airport is also going to be really big for us.”

“We really are proud to serve our beer here at the new airport. We like being ambassadors for our hometown Birmingham, but also ambassadors for craft beer. All our servers at the Good People pub will be Cicerone Certified Beer Servers, which means they’ve been trained and tested on different beer styles, flavors and how to suggest pairings putting the right beer with certain types of food.”

The Birmingham-Shuttlesworth International Airport has undergone several years of work that culminates today in opening two new passenger concourses with several new restaurants and the Good People Brewing taproom.
