Olde Towne's back, at least in its hometown

Looks like Huntsville's Olde Towne Brewing Co. is back in business. The brewery's Web site says they produced the first keg in their brand-new facility at the end of July. The company is in the midst of a series of Huntsville-area celebrations now. Here's a list from the site:
  • Olde Towne Tasting at 801 Franklin, Wednesday 6-8 p.m.
    801 Franklin, Huntsville, AL; $20 per person. For more details and reservations call 256-519-8019.
  • Olde Towne Brewing Company's Grand Re-Opening Party, Aug. 23 5-11 p.m.
    Lowe Mill, corner of Seminole & 9th Avenue, Huntsville, AL
    Live music & more. Admission is free, donations to be split between the Lowe Mill's Art Endeavors and Free the Hops.
  • Olde Towne Pint Night at the Brick, Aug. 29
    112 Moulton Street East, Decatur, AL
    The Brick Deli is proud to welcome back Olde Towne Brewing Company to Decatur! Join us at the Brick for great food, Rollin' in the Hay on stage and Olde Towne Beer.
Old Towne's original facility burned in a fire last July. They've spent the last year or so finding a site, desigining the new building, buying equipment and getting things rolling. Congrats to 'em, I say!

The Web site lists a number of Huntsville-area restaurants and bars where you can get Olde Towne's stuff. Looks like the retail selection is limited so far. Here's hoping they'll be available statewide soon.
