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.


FTH is still looking to the future of specialty beer in Alabama. While many decisions remain to be made, it is certain that FTH will play a continuing role in beer culture and beer education in Alabama. As such, we invite you to view our beer education section which contains an introduction to beer styles, beer and food pairing ideas, and other helpful information. FTH is also working with the Alabama Brewers' Guild to promote more brewer- and beer-friendly legislation.
