The largest city in Alabama is Birmingham, where steel, banking and insurance are among the top industries, and cultural and entertainment venues are plentiful for residents. The University of Alabama at Birmingham and Samford University are excellent education options, and nearly 10 microbreweries are experiencing success. They include Cahaba Brewing Co. and Avondale Brewing Co., which produces our selection for the city, Vanillaphant Porter, as well as other highly-rated tastes like Spring Street Saison.
