You’ve heard of the Craft Coffee Trail. You’ve heard of the Craft Beer Trail. And now is your time to try Downtown Huntsville’s Craft Cocktail Trail! The Huntsville cocktail scene has been booming within the last couple of years. With spring here, now may be the best time to try all the various drinkable delicacies around Downtown Huntsville! We've broken down the stops to give you an idea of which one may best suits your needs.
How does the Downtown Huntsville Craft Cocktail Trail Work? You pick up a card at one of the seven stops or our Visitor Center at 500 Church Street NW in Huntsville, Alabama. You collect stamps at each stop, and when you have collected each stamp, you get a free cocktail strainer.
Please note that this trail is not meant to be done in one night, and you should always drink responsibly.
