Help Us Free The Hops

Free The Hops | Alabamians For Specialty Beer (FTH) is a grassroots, non-profit organization whose mission is to help bring the highest quality beers in the world to Alabama. These beers are commonly referred to as craft beers due to the skill and artistry required to brew them, but they are also appropriately classified as specialty or gourmet.


It's Brewfest Season!

We have 3 brewfests coming up in the next 2 months, and each one will feature over 150 different craft beers including many rare, specially-brewed and cask ales. You may also find some ciders, and even meads.
