The Story

Good People grew out of a homebrewing hobby shared by Auburn University graduates Jason Malone and Mike Sellers.  They began operating professionally in September 2007 at the former Southside Cellar Brewing Company location in Pickwick Plaza on Magnolia Avenue.


Heavy grapefruit, ripe orange, pineapple, guava and a wisp of pine pervades the nose.  Tucked underneath is a slight bready malt component with a touch of caramel.  Bitter but not necessarily like a true West Coast IPA.


Characterized by floral, fruity, citrus-like, piney or resinous American-variety hop character, the IPA beer style is all about hop flavor, aroma, and bitterness.  This has been the most-entered category at the Great American Beer Festival for more than a decade, and is the top-selling craft beer style in supermarkets and liquor stores across the U.S.
