Birds Fly South Ale Project | Greenville, SC

Birds Fly South Ale Project was born out of a passion project by husband & wife duo Shawn & Lindsay Johnson in 2016, and has grown to become a renowned craft beer force in the southeast. Gaining notoriety with our Brettanomyces focused saisons, hoppy farmhouse beers & sours, we’ve since grown a larger “flock” through our delicious lagers, IPAs, and barrel aging program.

Craft Beer with Methodology & Funk.

Our brewery focuses first and foremost on creating farmhouse/saisons/wild beer. However, we offer a wide range of styles and truly have something for everyone. We’re constantly exploring recreating classic style beers with our own innovative techniques, resulting in complex, thought-provoking, delicious beers unlike anywhere else. Set in an urban farmhouse (just down the street from downtown Greenville), makes for the perfect setting to enjoy our multi medal-winning ales.

Funk First.

Although we continue to evolve our brewing with the latest trends and styles, we will always be funk at our core. This means laboring and perfecting the innerworkings of wild beer methods while and working with materials such as brett, open fermentation, wine barrels, just to give you a taste. What else does “funk first” mean?
