My wife and I just got back home from spending the 4th in Huntsville with our son.  Didn't get the chance to try all the different brewpubs / tap rooms but I did bring a selection home to try. 
We did make it to Yellowhammer.  Pizza was good at the attached brick oven place, but we were there for the beer.  By far the 1819 was my favorite.
Looking forward to our next trip and trying some of the other local places.

One thing I could not find in Huntsville was a homebrew shop, is there one and I missed it or is it missing in the market?
thanks,
Ron
There is not really a homebrew shop. We have a health food store that has a selection of homebrew items. But, it’s not a full service homebrewing store.

Glad you liked Huntsville.

One place I like is the Biergarten at the US Space and Rocket Center on Thursday nights. It’s unfortunately closed this year due to Covid related staffing issues. It’s German food and German beer in a museum with the Saturn V rocket hanging from the ceiling.

fwiw the best beers in Huntsville right now are probably at Chandler's Ford (aka Beezr -- it's a little confusing). He is brewing some very good lagers, horizontal lagering tanks, decoction capable brewhouse, spunding for natural carbonation. And it is a compact and well thought out suystem. Pub sized. A homebrewer's dream system, for sure maybe on 1/4th scale.

That said, I had a isovaleric-cheesy-hop bomb hazy terrible beer there a week ago so, not saying it is perfect. (I didn't order the hazy -- someone at the table did. And it was undrinkable).

Thanks.  I also enjoyed the weissen on tap.  We will have to try the Biergarten next trip. 
I retire from the Navy in about 14 months and Huntsville is one the short list of places to move to, and only a 3 hour drive to Auburn Games - Warm Eagle!

Huntsville is a great place for vets. Lots of great jobs that leverage that experience.

Wow, totally missed my typo - War Eagle!!!

Thanks for the article.  Good read, now just need the housing prices to not explode too much before we get there.

Too late. Real Estate is off the charts here. I know several agents who say even before they list they get offers. Good news is sub divisions are going up all over. (If you’re a sub division kinda guy)

Neighborhood is likely where we will end up but I would have preferred 5-10 acres and some space for a barn to develop ideas, build and brew.

+1. I only own 2 but am surrounded by those with 50, 25, 14, 17, etc. My neighbors are great. Sight unseen.

I live in a neighborhood close to downtown. My neighbors are also great. Sight unseen ;) I can see their houses but, I don’t see much them.
