“Great Microbrewery!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 July 2014

My husband and I visited Straight to Ale earlier this week and had a great time. I ordered a beer flight and loved them all. The pale ale was my favorite. It's a neat location and also offers reasonably priced merchandise. Worth a stop in!

“Mystery solved!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 July 2014

Straight to Ale is an excellent microbrewery destination, but Alabama State Laws apparently make it a bit of a treasure hunt to roll on in. There is no obvious signage in their business park, and a GPS will find some challenge to get you there. Persist though, and at this point, look out for Matrix Gym and its not too far from there.

Once you arrive, there is ample parking and an awesome experience awaits inside!

“Good place to visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 May 2014

Recently went to the Homebrew Fest 2014 event held at Straight to Ale with almost 30 beers to taste. Great idea to showcase local folks handiwork. Beer stations were set up in the warehouse with some tables to sit and sip. The fenced in area outside also had tables and a stage for the bands that played.Very nice and fun atmosphere.
This place is evolving from simply a brewery/taproom to a place for events of all kinds. Of course their brews are excellent, providing options that will satisfy almost everyone's tastes. Well worth a visit and keeping up with the upcoming special activities.

“Great Brewery”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 April 2014

A pleasant surprise to find this establishment in Huntsville. I was missing good craft beer from San Diego. We took the brewery tour. Good explanation of the brewing process and the beers they brew. The tasting room has a welcoming atmosphere and the beer is tasty. Loved the Lily Flagg Milk Stout and Brother Joseph's Belgian Dubbel.

“Great place for Beer and Tunes”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 September 2013

I've been to the Straight to Ale Taproom a few times now.

It's a "bare bones" kind of place...they don't serve food, but there is usually a food truck or some kind of food vendor parked outside. The beer is awesome...I've had a couple of their flights or samplers and enjoyed many of their brews. I particularly enjoy the Wheat Beer, but I am a beer wimp and don't care for IPAs.

The large "back room" is excellent for music...I've seen a solo act, a band and went to a "CD Release" event there...each time I really enjoyed myself.

The bar tenders are very knowledgeable about their beers and will give you recommendations and samples to help the novice, like me, decide what to drink.

It's a little hard to find the first time, but well worth searching for.
