Straight to Ale
An American Strong Ale/Barleywine with a huge dose of wheat, Vern’s is sweet, potent, and full-bodied with a soft mouthfeel. Notes of caramel, molasses and dark cherries abound in this lightly spicy and complex beer. (Description provided by company)
The bigger, badder brother to our flagship Monkeynaut IPA, this beer definitely shoots for the moon. A supernova of citrusy hop aroma and flavor up front and a sweet malty backbone make this an aggressive yet well-balanced beer. It finishes with a smooth, lingering hop bitterness.

Unobtanium is a barrel-aged English-style Old Ale that ages for six months in a bourbon barrel, soaking up all sorts of amazing whiskey character as well as hints of oak and vanilla.
Illudium is a rich, complex English-style old ale that is aged for six months in a cognac barrel. Sweet, dark and potent with vinous notes and an alcohol warmth, Illudium is highly sought after as only a small quantity is released each January. (Description provided by company)
Formerly an English nut brown ale, we have reimagined it as a traditional English-style brown porter. Rich and lightly sweet with notes of caramel, toast, coffee, and semi-sweet chocolate. It is one of two fall/winter seasonals. (Description provided by company)
Named for Huntsville's "Mountain of Health," Monte Sano is a German golden bock. Pronounced "MY-BOCK," the style is traditionally a bridge between lighter summer beers and the bigger darker beers of winter. Our take on the style is sweet with a light, crisp hop finish.
Sometimes hours of deep thought go into a beer name; sometimes, a drunken pun is responsible. A riff on the 1969 hit by the Hollies "He Ain't Heavy, He's My Brother," this traditional German unfiltered wheat beer has a nose of banana and clove.
Winter has arrived again and Huntsville, Alabama's Straight to Ale has released a new batch of their Russian imperial stout - Laika. I fell in love with this RIS last year and have been eagerly awaiting its return. Despite Straight to Ale offering their Lily Flagg Milk Stout year-round, it lacks the complexity and punch that can be found in this seasonal brew.
