Progressively Old School

We make craft beer with a throwback approach. Through a combination of time-tested brewing/blending methods and modern practices we create beer that is complex, thought-provoking, and above all delicious.

An Ale Project

We focus on Farmhouse Saisons and Sour beers. With each barrel, puncheon, and foudre, our beers develop their own sassiness - their own mind. I like to say “we don’t make beer, we wait for the beer to tell us what it wants to be”.

Rooted in Family

The name “Birds Fly South” is a Johnson family inside joke. For the last 22 years we lived the Coast Guard life, migrating across the country – A flock of birds always trying to head back down south.

The Tasting Room

Our beer is best experienced with other people. The tasting room is designed to inspire conversation, exploration, and sharing.

Our “urban farmhouse”, located in Greenville’s West End Water Tower District, hosts a stand up bar, live music, outdoor patio, and rotating food trucks.

We invite you to come by, try something new, and spend a relaxed afternoon among friends.
