Thrillist: The Underrated Breweries List
We’re stoked to be recognized by Thrillist as the most underrated brewery in our home state of South Carolina!
Check out what Ale Sharpton & Co had to say about Birds Fly South and the places we’ll fly in 2019 and beyond:
“Greenville has steadily developed its craft beer scene over the last decade, and Birds Fly South has literally brought funk with their lauded portfolio of mostly wood-aged wild ales. The city’s legendary Thomas Creek helped get Birds’ feet wet as a contract brewer, but once the fall of 2016 hit, co-founders Shawn Johnson and his wife Lindsay established their own brick-and-mortar, mastered their craft, and never looked back. Within the next two years, thy hosted the answer to Wicked Weed’s infamous demise of the Funkatorium Invitation — a gangster bottle share called the inaugural Funk Collective Festival — expanded their brewery to 15,000 square feet, and broadened its fanbase by distributing to neighboring cities across state lines. Ultimately, get your shades on because Fly South’s future is only beginning to shine.”
