HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) - As they approach their two-year anniversary, Salty Nut Brewery co-owner Jay Kissell says legislative changes have made room for the business to grow.
"It was very difficult for a brewery to get started because of limitations on alcohol percentage, container size, not being able to sell direct to the customer through a taproom," explained Kissell.
All factors now eliminated within the last decade. One thing that still remains is a block on growlers, Kissell says that restriction hurts with out-of-towners.
"Unfortunately we can't sell them anything they can take with them, they can only drink them on premise here with us."
With the former Stone Middle School becoming a brew hub, brewery owners has it on its radar.
"We're actively looking possibly at moving to a location that would get us closer tot that area because we think it will become a brewing district for this town," said Kissell.
But in the meantime, the brewery is bringing host of things for their regulars -- and visitors, too.
Local and touring bands will play at the brewery on a monthly basis, as well as game nights and coloring nights making appearances once a month as people enjoy their beer.
Salty Nut's upcoming band lineup is follows:
Friday, June 12 - The Dirty Heat
Saturday July 11 - Foot Pound Force
They are also the final location of Downtown Huntsville, Inc's Taproom Tours on July 25.
