Details


Each year the Rocket City Brewfest is hosted by the Huntsville Chapter of Free the Hops as our fundraiser. For the past four years now, we have provided a weekend long event dedicated to our favorite adult beverage, Craft Beer! We gather the BEST craft beers available in the Alabama markets, pair it with great local food vendors, and entertain you with local and regional musical acts. Each year we host this event in the Historic Huntsville Depot and Roundhouse grounds found at 320 Church Street, in Huntsville Alabama!

Our two sessions, offer up the same great brews, but two different vibes to this outdoor festival. With an emphasis on local and regional breweries, we put you at the forefront of the “Alabama Beer Boom” that is getting so much national press right now in the beer communities! We are all part of history in the making by supporting the Rocket City Brewfest each year!

A lot has changed since we first introduced this event in 2009. After we were successful in our campaign to pass the Gourmet Beer Bill, Huntsville has become the beer capital of Alabama with 3 local production breweries and even more brewers contract brewing here in the state! Regional breweries and brewpubs are opening all across the state, due to the impact of the Gourmet Beer Bill and subsequent bills that FTHs has successfully lobbied and gained passage for.
