"IF YOU BREW IT,
THEY WILL COME"
When you visit the brewery, you really have to step off the beaten path...literally. We built our brewery on our old family farm that was purchased in the 1960s
Since then, houses sprang up all around us and it became a neighborhood! Since we are a family owned brewery, we wanted to bring something unique to Dothan, AL that speaks to our Southern hospitality.
Pub fare is available from Fly By Night Grill adjacent to the brewery.
You must be 21 or older to visit, so, for now, kids and babies should stay at home.
Belly up to the bar and chances are you will taste something you like!

Mom, Dad and Sis would never have believed they would be in the beer business, but here we are years later doing just that! Along with countless friends that support Folklore and other local businesses, we exist because of you. We do our best to create a local, unique, quality product and are doing our best to help support local community and charity events as we grow. Thanks for helping us represent Dothan, Alabama as a Exporter of Products and contributor to local commerce!
Our brewery is built on the old family farm on the outskirts of Dothan, AL where we have room to grow and expand for future production needs. We are hopeful to complete our Meadery this year and fulfill all Federal Licensing requirements in order to be allowed to produce Mead, which is Honey wine! You are welcome to come out on Tasting/Tour days for a fresh sample of what's brewing. Join our mailing list to get a monthly beer schedule of the up and coming beers!

FROM THE BREWMASTER
My name is Jeremy Pate and I'm the head brewer and part owner of Folklore Brewing & Meadery in Dothan, AL. Living in South Alabama in the 90's and 2000's was pretty tough for a beer lover and homebrewer. My familiy and I decided to open Folklore Brewing & Meadery with very little capital. It was a combination of over a decade of brewing experience and desperation to get to the point where we would actually be able to brew. Without a wealthy benefactor, we had to work 10 times harder than everyone else to make it happen. Some colleagues questioned why we would consider opening a brewery in Dothan and the answer was simple..."Why not here, now, with our friends and family!" We have become the first 'packaging brewery' in Dothan since Prohibition. It's our hope to bring something unique to Dothan where our friends and family live and we can find creative ways to revive old-timey Southern sayings and old wise tales we grew up hearing in the South. Folklore is not limited to the South, it's about remembering some of the great stories and fairy tales we grew up hearing. Some of those stories are funny, spooky, silly and otherwise fantastic! We haven't forgotten our Southern Heritage as we create new unique flavors. Every beer we make reflects our traditions, quality and dedication to creating the best beers we can for our friends and loved ones right here at home!
