Huntsville brewery Straight To Ale will be hosting a Beer Tasting and Pint Night at The Local Standard in Cullman, at 116 4th Ave. Southwest, this Wednesday night, June 5. The event, which lasts from 6 p.m. until 10 p.m., will feature samples of four different Straight To Ale beers. For $5, participants will receive a logo pint glass and four tickets, each of which will entitle the bearer to a 4 oz. sample of beer. Ballots will be handed out so that patrons can help The Local Standard decide which of the featured STA beers they will put on tap beside the current STA favorite, Brother Joseph’s Belgian Dubbel, a beer named in honor of the Ave Maria Grotto’s builder Brother Joseph Zoettl. Additional sample tickets may be purchased for $1, and full pints of Brother Joseph and other beers on tap will be regular price.
