Tommy & BamaBrew,
Thanks. I am Navy so aside from my time at Auburn (War Eagle) I haven't spent much time in the state, and only a very little since 1996. Alabama (and a few other states) won't tax my military pension when I retire, one of the attractions of several states in the south. We are also tired of the cold. We have lived in Maine, Washington State, Hawaii, Guam, Florida, the Carolinas and Virginia. Stuck in DC now and way too crowded.
My son lives in Huntsville and likes the area. We have been down twice to visit and liked the space and friendliness of the people (they aren't that way in Boston or DC).
I get serious and drop my papers the first of the year.
We did get to try Yellowhammer last time we were down and liked the beer and the pizza. Thinking about Rocket Republic to try out this time.
There aren't any homebrew shops in the area, how do you get supplies?
