Ultimate Guide to Birmingham Breweries :: In & Around Birmingham

0

Going to a brewery doesn’t necessarily mean going out to drink these days. Several breweries in our area are family-friendly and some even offer live entertainment regularly!

As far as trying these local brews, I would certainly look into Untappd. In some cases, this site tracks the list of brews in a facility (such as a brewery, bar or restaurant) in real-time. It is also good for tracking down a specific drink on draft or even in a store. Consumers also can rate and describe the drinks so you know in most cases what to expect.

Without further ado, here is a list of breweries in the Birmingham metro area!

Kristina is an Alabama native who came to Birmingham in 2005 for college (has it really been 15 years?!). She had lived in Muscle Shoals her whole life up until that point. After graduating from UAB in 2009 with a degree in journalism and a minor in music, she married Paul in 2011. Paul has worked in the tech industry since 2009. Kristina has had several jobs in the area - everything from banking, veterinary medicine and receptionist. She most recently worked from home as low-level tech support. Kristina and Paul had the biggest surprise of their lives when they went in for the first 8-week ultrasound and found out that they were expecting "spontaneous" twins! Everything was going to change already, but they had to multiply it by two! Two girls, Elle and June, were born in July 2019 and nothing has been the same since. Kristina is now a stay-at-home mom to Elle and June and it has been the most rewarding job of all! Kristina, Paul, Elle and June make home in Alabaster, where you can usually find them on the weekends. They like going around to the things in the area, such as shopping and going on walks in the park. The babies are famous - neither Kristina or Paul can go anywhere alone without people asking about the twins!
