Straight to Ale
This brewery is one of the stops on the Huntsville Craft Beer and Ale Trail, a path of the different breweries that Huntsville has to offer. Straight to Ale not only has beer but wine and liquor as well. A fun feature of this spot is the secret speakeasy that comes with its own hidden bar.
The next stop on the Craft Beer Trail is Yellowhammer Brewing. The brewery is known for its German-style lagers, ales, sours, and hazys and features live music and pizza. Co-owner Ethan Conch points out that the craft brew scene in Huntsville is a team effort.
