The Beer Scene

The local-brew revolution took off after the repeal in 2009 of antiquated beer laws. Leading the way in town are Avondale Brewery and Good People Brewing Company, each offering decidedly different sipping environments. Good People, located downtown next to Railroad Park, has a laid-back, Saturday afternoon vibe; try their Snake Handler, a superhoppy double IPA. Avondale is more of a Friday night hot spot; their Spring Street Saison is a delicious Belgian.
