Beer fans are blessed with roughly a dozen brewery taprooms and brew pubs in the Huntsville-Madison area. But if you’re trying to put together a multi-stop brewery trail for a night out with friends, two areas in the Rocket City are your best bets.
Clinton Avenue West offers an easily walkable beer crawl. The area includes the Campus No. 805 multi-use venue that hosts both Straight to Ale and Yellowhammer breweries. A couple blocks away are InnerSpace Brewing Co. and Salty Nut Brewery.
The other area, the Twickenham neighborhood, requires sober transportation—a ride-share service or designated driver—to hit all the highlights. Three of the breweries—Green Bus, Chandlers Ford, and Below the Radar—are within walking distance. But Rocket Republic and Mad Malts are a little more than a mile away.
We’ve suggested both lighter and heavier brews (and alcohol levels in parenthesis) to sample at each. But specialty beers regularly rotate; availability varies.
Gather a thirsty group, arrange for transportation, and discover the diverse portfolios of Huntsville beer scene, with styles rooted in the United States, Great Britain, Germany, and Belgium. No passport is necessary.
