Every so often along my travels a brewery opens up during non-business hours just for me. During this trip, the brewer at Cahaba Brewing Company in Birmingham, Alabama opened up just for me so I could taste their beer. He also stopped his work for a while and spoke with me about the beers and the company and their plans. What a great time. Then I tried the beers. The Oka Uba IPA was great to drink, not too hoppy and easy to enjoy. I also tried the India Pale Lager. That’s the first of it’s kind I’ve ever had. It was full-bodied; heavier than ale. Very good. And finally I tried the Fraxinus Maximus Double IPA which was crisp, strong and rich. A big shout out to Cahaba Brewing Company for letting me stop by during non-business hours.
