The craft beer boom in the United States is spreading like wildfire throughout all communities and the great city of Tuscaloosa is not immune to the flames!

Statistics from state,

Breweries are opening at a rate of 1.5 per day.

Today 75% of all Americans live within 10 miles of a craft brewery.

Tuscaloosa is now home to two established breweries and a third on the way. Druid City Brewing Company was the first to set up shop in our champion city and have become somewhat of a "big brother" to the others.

We recently sat down with Bo Hicks, co-owner and Brew Master to discuss their production, love of Tuscaloosa, buying local, and plans for the future. Also, stick around after the video to find out what happened to Bo's "beerd."
