Downtown Huntsville Craft Beer Trail

Downtown Huntsville Craft Beer Trail

It’s been less than six years since Alabama’s Brewery Modernization Act legalized taprooms at craft breweries in this state, and 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 the 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.  Get your passport stamped at all 9 locations, and you get a free bottle opener!
