Nice beer article in The Huntsville Times:

Quote:
Wish You Were Beer, the first craft-only beer store in north Alabama, is preparing to open June 15 on 7407 U.S. 72 in Madison. Owner Damon Eubanks said the "one-of-a-kind" business will have a bar and retail storefront so shoppers can either buy singles or create their own six pack. The 2,000-square-foot store, located between Knuckleheads Sports Bar and the Cigar Room, will have about 20 craft beers on tap.
The fledgling craft beer industry is growing (and Madison County is the beer capital of Alabama):

Quote:
Beer production statewide grew 118 percent to 19,301 taxable barrels of beer from 8,846 barrels in 2011, Executive Director Dan Roberts said Tuesday. Roberts said Madison County has the highest per capita volume of breweries than any other county in Alabama...

Roberts said a "strong hunger" developed locally for brewpubs and breweries after lawmakers passed the Free the Hops Gourmet Beer Bill in May 2009 to increase the alcohol by volume in beer from 6 to 13.9 percent. Two years later, the Brewery Modernization Act passed, allowing Alabama breweries to have on-site tap rooms. Last May, Free the Hops in Alabama worked to pass the Gourmet Bottle Bill, which allows brewers to sell up to 25.4 oz bottles of beer...

...Rocket Republic, Huntsville Brewery and Salty Nut join several other brew-making businesses in the Huntsville area, including Straight to Ale, Blue Pants, Yellowhammer Brewing, Brew Stooges, Below the Radar and Old Black Bear Brewing Company. Roberts projects 38,944 barrels of beer will be produced in Alabama this year, up 102 percent from 2012.

It's getting close to opening but I haven't heard a date. It'll be worth the wait.

I am simply amazed...it seems the micro brews have just sprung up over night in the area. Now that we are allowed to make our own home brew, I may just experiment with some flavors. Anyone have any experience with home brewing and would be willing to share some tips with a n00b?
