Eric Meyer and Andy Gwaltney, friends with more than a common interest for craft beer and home brewing, came together to found a brewery to celebrate life’s passions and provide Birmingham with a broad selection of flavorful craft beers. With a love of the outdoors they named the brewery after Alabama’s iconic Cahaba River. In the summer of 2011 they devised a plan to build a brewery and thus Cahaba Brewing Company was born.
Crafting excellent beer is their passion. Like the river itself, it is the source of the journey. They didn’t know what was around the bend, but this they did know—sitting on the bank was not an option. Now Eric and Andy are supplying Birmingham bars and restaurants with craft beers such as White IPA, Liquidambar, American Blonde, Ryezome Stout, Oka Uba IPA and rotating seasonals.
