An international beer-rating website has named Huntsville’s Straight to Ale Alabama’s best brewery and its Monkeynaut IPA the state’s best beer. RateBrew tallies reviews submitted by beer drinkers around the world.
Straight to Ale was founded in 2009 and has grown to become one of Alabama’s largest breweries. In 2016, it opened a new 45,000-square-foot facility at the Huntsville entertainment and food site Campus 805 and expanded to include cider and mead production.
“It takes a lot of hard work from our entire team here at Straight to Ale, along with great support from our community to get us here, along with a little monkeying around.” Straight to Ale Brewery Manager Bob Gile said.
“2019 was our most competitive year to date, seeing continued growth in the number of brewers, beers and ratings added to the site. We couldn’t be to be prouder to recognize these breweries for this hard-earned honor,” RateBeer founder Joe Tucker said.
