Celebrating with Bicentennial Brews

The Alabama Brewers Guild, in cooperation with the Alabama Bicentennial Commission, has enlisted breweries from across Alabama to collaborate in concocting a series of beers, each honoring one of the state’s five capitals. St. Stephens Stout for St. Stephens (Good People Brewing Co., Birmingham), Badlun Brothers Imperial Porter for Huntsville (Straight to Ale, Huntsville), Mulberry Road Belgian Style Dubbel for Cahawba (Cahaba Brewing Co., Birmingham), Duffie's Tavern Strong Ale for Tuscaloosa (Cahaba Brewing Co., Birmingham), and Bitter Constituent for Montgomery (Common Bond Brewers, Montgomery) bring unique flavors inspired by the rich heritage of the once-capitals of Alabama.
