Among the restaurants, bistros and bars of Gulf Shores and Orange Beach, a large selection of local and regional craft beer can be found. From hoppy to nutty to herb-infused, craft beer is flowing all around and becoming more and more of an attraction.
The island’s local brewery is Big Beach Brewing Company. There’s a laid-back atmosphere at this open-air, pet-friendly establishment, but they are serious about their beer. Big Beach features a 10-barrel system that is literally tank to tap; the barrel lines go straight to the taproom.
Big Beach’s brews can be found on tap at several local establishments, many of which also offer hosts of other local and regional beers as well as craft beers that have gained national recognition. Whether your choice is to test a flight of brews in search of an outstanding newcomer or grab a growler-to-go of your favorite standby, you won’t have to travel far to find it.
Enjoying the beach and the brews is a fun and tasty combination gaining popularity along Alabama’s Gulf Coast. Cheers to that!
