Straight to Ale was founded by Dan Perry and Rick Tarvin in Huntsville, Alabama after the state legalized beers with an ABV higher than 6% in 2009. No, really, they filed paperwork for the business the Monday after the Gourmet Beer Bill passed. Recently, Straight to Ale announced plans to move their brewery and tap room for its current location to the site of the former Stone Middle School building in West Huntsville in the next couple of years.

As Straight to Ale works to complete their new brewery at Campus 805 in Huntsville, Alabama, I decided to do the tour at the current brewery. The tours are offered every Saturday at 2pm with a first-come, first served approach on the free tours. Usually they will take up to 30 people on the tour. A second tour is added if there is a large enough crowd to warrant it.
Working with Church Street Wine Shop, Straight to Ale put a tripel into chardonnay barrels for this delightful release.
