The craft brew business in Huntsville has been booming. With dozens of unique beers only available in Huntsville or the region, fans of malt fermentation have a lot to taste in Huntsville.
The Downtown Huntsville Craft Beer Trail, organized by Downtown Huntsville, Inc., is your guide to finding those flavors. Your first stop should be the Huntsville/Madison County Visitor Center to pick up a passport with a list and map of all the locations on the trail. The card is separated into two sections: Craft Breweries and Local Beer Stores. Get your “Trail Card” stamped at the locations, and you get a free bottle opener!
