A: Home sweet home. Stopped in here a while back after visiting some family in Madison. My second visit here and things have drastically changed since "Free the Hops". Kudos to the owner of The Nook and those BA's who have this.

Q: Never had a dirty beer here.

S: Good, no major issues but the lack of beer knowledge is troubling

S: The selection is great. Actually better than many beer bars. For the location it has a GREAT selection.

It was nice to here chatter about craft beer. Talked beer with a fellow BA. They have really come along way over the years and my wife and I enjoyed this place alot..coming from California this was a great experience. I will be back next time I am in there area and will def recommend this place.

A: Not much has changed since the previous visit on the atmosphere side. It seems like people want to "outbeer each other" and it's rather beer newb talk more than anything.

Q: Very good. The beers are tasty, no qulity issues

S: Not bad, sometimes slow but never rude to me

S: Excellent and getting better with every visit

A: Really no change.

Q: I had a feeling my Founders Old Curmudgeon went to the distribution warehouse, sat there, then someone decided...lets send this to Bama. It was of poor quailty. Oxidized and thin. They seem to have alot of IPAs in the coolers which makes me question the freshness on all of their bottles.

S: Not to bad, friendly and prompt

S: Great, I can not complain

The cost on bombers is absolutely ridiculous!

Hundreds of bottled beers. Many beers on tap. Supportive of local breweries by hosting release parties.

Food selection is not your average bar food. Personal favorite is the Chicago Dog. Also enjoy the red-beans-n-rice and jambalaya.

Many of the staff are able to discuss your beer selection with you to find something you'll enjoy. They will provide samples of beers on tap. I've personally gone through two or three samples in a row on several occasions without getting any negative attitude from the bartender.

It was a tough choice choosing between $$ - reasonable and $$$ - a bit pricey... One doesn't go here to drink cheap beer!

Stopped by the Nook while visiting our daughter and son-in-law. Easy to miss because it sits back off the road but has large sign. Visited
twice during our time in Hunstville and the owner and wait staff were all friendly and courteous.

Excellent selection of beers (48 on draught ? in bottle) served at the right temperature. Tried Aventinus Weizendopplebock, Belgian Style Yeti, Rogue John John Dead Guy, Rogue Imperial Stout all on draught(it was my birthday after all).

The capper on the evening of my birthday was that one of the Rogue Brewery Reps happened to be there. He was a great guy, was very knowledgeable, didn't badmouth any other breweries, and a good time was had by all.


I would highly reccomend to any traveling near Huntsville.
