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 and Saisons, with a passion for unique sours, funky IPAs, barrel-aged brews, and range of wild and traditional styles. With each barrel, puncheon, and foudre, our beers develop their own sassiness – their own mind. We 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. Our family is a flock, always looking to make our way south. Once we landed in Greenville we knew we had found our home. This is where we as a family, and as a brewery, are supposed to be.
