Running 2-2-2-4 Wire to Shed

I am look to run a 2-2-2-4 Aluminum SER wire out to my shed. I wanted to put an electrical brewing system out there that runs off 50 amp plus I wanted plenty of extra power for various other tasks. With this wire I was hoping to get 80 or so amps. I have run wire before to sub panels but never over head and outside. The total run is about 125', about 75' is outdoors where I am going to run a stainless cable from my brick out to the hardy shed I built. I guess my basic question is am I on the right track.

You should not run SER for an overhead application. You should use aerial overhead service drop wire. Plus you need to meet height and clearance distances.
