Kicking Back With Olde Towne

Karen and I are sitting here enjoying Huntsville's first microbrewery known as Olde Towne Brewing Co. Sadly, there web site is not working or someone hasn't paid the bill (just kidding). They are are listed in Wikipedia.

We first had this beer at the grand debuted on August 12th, 2004 which was held at Humphrey's

We have had all of their standard brews which are Amber, Pale Ale, and Extra Pale Ale. The Extra Pale Ale is brewed for the “Bud” crowd to make the jump to microbrew. The Amber and Pale Ale are typically for their styles. All three have well received in Huntsville, but the favors vary from batch to batch.

Presently, Olde Towne has a Hefeweizen out as their seasonal brew. It has been their best offering to date according to us and friends.

Southern Brewers Festival

Karen and I have booked travel to the Southern Brewers Festival in Chattanooga, TN on the riverfront. It will be September 10th, 2005 instead of the Saturday before Labor Day weekend. It is a great event for all. Typically, 10 to 15 brewers are represented and each brewer has at least two beers available to tasting. At only buck a tasting with everything going to charity, who can beat it!

We stay for the whole weekend, because their is so much to do in Chattanooga. The best place to stay is Courtyard which across the street from all the activities.

We hope to see you there. We will be right in the middle of it all sitting in our folding chairs with cold beer, of course.
