Fall in Alabama means Saturday tailgating, bonfires and good times with friends and family. Take it upon yourself to (responsibly) crack open a cold one made right here in our own state. For your convenience, here are eight of the best beers brewed in Alabama:

Kyleharrell
Hard work and proper diet help Kyle Harrell to add to his role on the UAB defense
