Fairhope Brewing Company

Fairhope Brewing Company The Fairhope Brewing Company is a labor of love embarked upon by five people with two goals: brewing great beer and bringing it to the thirsty beer-drinkers of Lower Alabama. At FBC, we're just a bunch of beer geeks who have all pondered the same question: “With breweries popping up everywhere else in Alabama, why not in the southern part of the state?” Rather than sit around a bemoan the answer, we decided to do something about it, and the Fairhope Brewing Company was born. With more than 2,000 craft breweries operating in the United States, our team – Brian Kane, Michele Kane, Jim Foley, Gabe Harris, and Dan Murphy – has had no shortage of inspiration. All told, we've visited more than 50 craft breweries across the country, taking notes – and drinking a good bit of beer – along the way. Looking back, we all like to the think that each of those visits was research that would ultimately lead to us starting our own brewery. There's Brian and Michele's trip to the Kenai River Brewing Company in 2006. Or the time Gabe and his wife, Julie, took on a flight of more than 20 beers at the renowned Russian River Brewing Company in Northern California. Or when Jim stumbled upon the Dry Dock Brewery in a strip mall in Denver, and Dan and his wife Amy drove through a snowstorm to visit the bucolic Ommegang Brewery in upstate New York.
