Still Brewing Strong

Straight to Ale uses bold flavors and innovative brewing techniques to enrich our community, build long-lasting friendships, and of course, make great beer.

Founded by local home brewers in 2009, Straight to Ale has quickly grown to become one of Alabama’s largest production breweries.

Straight To Ale has gained regional and national attention within the craft beer community. In the summer of 2016 we opened our new 45,000 square foot facility at Campus 805. At this location, we expanded to include cider and mead production along with Shelta Cavern Spirits, and Ale's Kitchen, a scratch made kitchen.

We are Southern Born, Southern Brewed!

Straight to Ale was named RateBeer's 2019 best brewer in the state!

Mayor Tommy Battle proclaimed February 14th Straight to Ale Day in Huntsville in honor of our RateBeer awards!
