About Folklore Brewing

Born out of a love of brews, Folklore Brewing and Meadery resembles a kind of rural speakeasy. In fact, the meadery became the first craft beer packager in Dothan since Prohibition!

Folklore Brewing was founded in 2013, but its roots trace back much further than that. The land the meadery now sits on was bought in 1962. Jeremy Pate, the mastermind behind the meadery, spent the years leading up to Folklore Brewing’s launch crafting home brews and brainstorming with other micro-breweries. These formative years set up the foundation for Folklore Brewing’s tasting room and home-made meads.

At the Meadery

Due to the recent COVID-19 outbreak, Folklore Brewing & Meadery is offering beer/mead to-go with the following hours:

Mon. through Wed., Closed;

Thurs.-Sun., 3 p.m. to 6 p.m.;

Fly By Night Grill, Closed until further notice.

 You can help support Folklore during this period by purchasing gift cards, buying merchandise like t-shirts and glasses, picking up a growler or six-pack at Folklore, or grabbing a six-pack while on a grocery run.

During normal operating hours, you can taste 14 different kinds of beer and more than eight home-brewed meads. But that’s far from all.

The meadery boasts a camp-like feel, with cornhole, life-sized Jenga, and other board games aplenty for entertainment. Or, if you’d prefer, you can simply hang out and shoot the breeze with buddies while enjoying a couple brews. Bluegrass, folk, and American music may just be in the background too.

Later in the week, the craft beers and brews are joined by handheld grub fitting for the location and occasion. You can bite into a burger, chow down on some nachos, gobble up a pretzel, or wipe out a pizza with friends! Fly by Night Grill normally serves up these fan favorites on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays.

Catch up with old classmates. Hang with friends. Spend a fun time together. The brewery’s typical hours are as follows:

Mon. through Wed., 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.;

Thurs., 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.;
