Alabama Loses One to Fire

There are already painfully few craft brewers in Alabama and yesterday another one — Olde Towne Brewing — was lost, destroyed by fire. It had been Huntsville, Alabama’s only brewery since Prohibition ended, opening in 2004. According to the Huntsville Times, the fire began in the middle of the night — around 2:30 a.m. — and by morning was gone. Owner Don Alan Hankins had returned to his native Hunstville to open the brewery after having worked at and founded several more throughout the Southeast. So far, no one’s sure what started the fire.
