About

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.

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”.

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.
