BIRMINGHAM – On Sunday, April 27 from 2 to 6 p.m., four Birmingham area breweries are opening their doors to support efforts to reduce poverty in Alabama.
Organized by Alabama Possible (formerly the Alabama Poverty Project), the Birmingham Beer Trail Tour will make stops at Avondale Brewing Company, Cahaba Brewing Company, Good People Brewing Company, and Trim Tab Brewing Company. At each stop, participants will get a special, behind the scene look at the brewing process and enjoy curated tastings from the brewery staff. Along the way, participants will also explore the emerging neighborhoods each brewery is helping to revive.
“We realized that while lots of folks have heard about Birmingham’s craft breweries, they don’t know much about them. The Birmingham Beer Trail Tour is a chance to taste each of the four breweries’ beer and learn about their history. By the end of the day, we hope that everyone has a new favorite Birmingham-brewed beer,” said Alabama Possible Executive Director Kristina Scott.
Proceeds from the Beer Trail Tour will benefit Alabama Possible, a nonprofit organization dedicated to reducing systematic poverty and its root cause across the state. Its work includes disrupting misperceptions about poverty, raising public awareness about the public-private partnerships offered to combat poverty, and increasing access to college for students from low-income families.
The Birmingham Beer Trail Tour will begin and end at Avondale Brewing Company (201 41st Street, South). Between stops, participants will be shuttled to each brewery in an authentic yellow school bus. A silent auction and food will immediately follow the final tasting at Avondale. Early-bird tickets are available until April 19 for $45/each and $85/couple.
