Good People Brewing Company of Birmingham is gearing up to hit the Huntsville market, with the help of our friends at Birmingham Beverage Company (distributor for Olde Towne, Sweetwater, and Orval among many other great beers).
The Nook had a keg of Good People Coffee Oatmeal Stout recently, and the Good People printed up a flyer describing how that beer affected the local economy. Here is a summary of the flyer:
Ever thought of the many persons / organizations affected by the simple act of ordering a GPBC Coffee Oatmeal Stout and the exponential power of supporting your local economy? While you are enjoying your pint, you are supporting the following organizations:
Good People Brewing Company and…
. their accounting, legal, advertising, etc. services
. local transportation companies
. utility companies providing energy / water used at brewery
. local / county / State taxes
Primavera Coffee Roasters located in Cahaba Heights.
J3 Organics uses spent grains (brewing by-product) donated by Good People as composting medium.
Continental Bakery uses donated spent grains in some of their products.
Birmingham Beverage distributes the beer: employing people, paying taxes, etc.
Free the Hops gets support from Good People to raise awareness of craft beer and lobby for better Alabama beer laws.
Pubs and restaurants sell the beer: employing people, paying taxes, etc.
… the power of supporting your local economy is pretty incredible, not to mention you get a pretty good beer out of the deal.
BTW the Nook has a keg of Good People’s Snake Handler American Double India Pale Ale set aside for a special occasion – I’m looking forward to getting snake bit.
The Nook Christmas Party is Monday, 14 December 2009, starting at 5PM. The featured beer is Left Hand Brewing Company’s Fade to Black Export Stout (from Colorado). One of the great things about The Nook is that it’s got a nice crowd, for example I got to say hi to State Representative Laura Hall (D – 19) last time I was there. She was enjoying a tasty Belgian Lambic, if you must know…
