Proud to see Huntsville, al on this list ... And the quote "Huntsville is considered the epicenter of craft brewing in the southeast"... Made me pretty happy.

That's pretty awesome. I haven't been to Huntsville in 20 years. I'm sure I wouldn't recognize it.

I've been here for 20 years and it has changed a lot.

I think I'm going to make a stop there on my way across the country in february. Keith, are you still going to be in your current place or will the new facility be up and running by then?

Hey! Bluffton made the list!

(they forgot to mention the famous garage brewery located there)

Should have had a picture of the Hayward house rather than the Garvey cottage (Freed slave shack house)

We will still be in current location. Let me know when and I'll be sure to be available to give you a beer sampling!

I've been here 10 and I really like the area. The beer scene has grown exponentially.

I'd like to be invited to that gathering. Don't want to intrude but I'd like to tip a glass with you guys.

I'd settle for you just popping in some weekend regardless of visitors. Support your local brewery. ;)

Got some great beers on tap right now. You should try the doppelstickealt before it is all gone. And the wine bbl aged Frankenhammer.  But of course you are invited if Jonathan shows up as well. (Let me know if you don't feel sufficiently guilty.) ;D

Maybe in 10 years. Huntspatch is too small to bring a crowd like that in. Nashville though...

You had me at Sticke Alt.  I'm in!!

I've been supporting the Big Deck BBQ and Brew (aka by basement fridge) lately but you're right it's been far too long. Cold weather and/or early sunset drives me home.
