Great shop. This place used to be mainly a liquor store, but they now have a great selection of interesting beers and 40 on tap. Their selection changes pretty regularly and I am always finding new beers there. Good selection of seasonal beers. Friendly staff that seems to know their stuff. They also sell kegs and have all the tap equipment you need. I noticed ericnixonís rating - this is a standalone building and there are no strip clubs nearby - I think he may have rated the wrong place.

So this place is a dive that is working to improve itself by bring in craft beer and 40 taps for plastic milk jug growlers. The beer is typical Belgian plus some new surprises. They have a nice selection of lambics and some harder to find local and regional brews. I got a great deal on some glassware to go with my newly purchased beer. Definitely improved from itís old days, but still a bit of a dive.

What they said below. It ainít pretty but itís the best thing going in Huntsville. The best selection of beer in town, with all the locals and a good selection of Belgians. Limited to 12oz bottles because of state laws. Best thing about this place is the ghetto growlers-superb selection of about 30 drafts on the wall-including most/all beers produced in Alabama. Available in 1/2 and 1 gallon plastic containers!!

Unassuming liquor store facade. The interior is well laid out and well lit. There isnít a lot of space, but it is efficiently filled. The employees are very helpful, although I didnít ask any difficult questions. The selection is large, especially for Huntsville. They have a great Belgian section and lots of local and regional brewers. Most of the beers are arranged by brewer, and they have a large spread from most. The donít have a very large selection of one-off beers or special releases. The prices are standard. Not the best place, but the best in the area.

BeerHawk  (52) Huntsville, Alabama | January 2, 2011| Updated August 3, 2012
Largest selection in town with lots of local and regionals. They just added about 40 taps and fill half-gallon and gallon ghetto growlers. All of the locals (Straight to Ale, Blue Pants, and Yellowhammer as well as Good People and other regionals) are on tap. Good sized single selection and they will bust up six packs if there is a single you want and not in the single area. The service is always friendly, helpful, and dedicated to bringing more great beer to the area. If you cannot find it here, you will not find it in Huntsville. Updated 3 Aug 12 - Up to 66 taps on the glrowler fill station. Now filling glass growlers. Large selection of bombers.

It looks a little seedy, but looks are deceiving. I was right impressed by their selection of beer, especially in Alabama with its tight liquor laws. I found quite a few beers that I have not seen in Georgia, and took home a couple mix-and-match six packs. The employees were a big help in guiding me towards the kind of beers I like, as well as towards local brews - and I enjoy supporting the locals! Some of the prices were a wee bit high, but none were outrageous. If ever you visit Huntsville, this place is worth finding.

Small place that covers the bases at a bare minimum. Selection is decent for the area I suppose. Singles and sixes, warm and cold. I found about half of what I was looking for, but they were nice enough to go in the back to look for what I wanted. They were surprised that they were out of so many; I guess they didnít know there was a beer festival bringing in all of us out-of-towners

Heh, all of the sin stuff is in one place. Liquor store, tattoo parlor, adult bookstore, and like 4 strip clubs in this plaza. They had some ok stuff, and some singles. I was able to get a single of Bud Select and some other stuff Iíd never buy in 6-packs since theyíre going to be drain pours. The guy behind the counter was super nice, but not knowledgeable about beer.

Decent place if you are in the area. Some seasonal micros, not many imports. Staff is not that knowledgeable.
