About Dog River Brewing Company


Dog River Brewing is a woman and veteran owned brewing company and meadery located in Mobile Alabama.  We're right by Dog River, on the scenic route of Mobile Bay, on the way to Mobile, Dauphin Island, Fairhope, Orange Beach, Fort Morgan and Daphne Alabama.


Our handcrafted beer is hand-mashed in small batches with the best Craft Beer ingredients from Brewliterate.com: Throughout the US and South America we get Hops, Alabama caramelized beet sugar, Alabama Honey Farm's Honey, pure H20 and more. Click on the BREW tab for complete brew descriptions.
We condition our water from a shallow well and do not use city water for any reason. We reverse osmosis our water and then create the perfect blend of minerals to begin our brews.


We started with a love of beer and a want for a craft brewery in Mobile Alabama. We have been brewing since college back in 1994 in Mobile Alabama. When we formed the company in 2015, we didn’t even realize we were the first craft brewery in Mobile since Prohibition. Fairhope Brewery beat us to the first in Lower Alabama…


We were inspired by the many breweries and tap rooms we have encountered in our travels. By day, I am a Marine Biologist and my husband is a retired Storm Chaser now Union Carpenter. In his travels he has collected over a hundred pint glasses from the various breweries and tap rooms he visited. So many, that a lot of them are packed up and not on display. He always drinks a beer from the pint glass he collects.


Our brew methods are very unique. We naturally brew our beers and meads using techniques to bring out the robust flavor of all key ingredients. Our beer is brewed to allow the ingredients to blend together forming a full, rich flavor, naturally brewed beer with no artificial ingredients or persevatives. We designed and created a fully automated brew controller and we use wood as our source of heat, not coal or electricity or natural gas. We try to minimize our carbon footprint using already fallen trees and branches.
We return our grains to our farm animals and nothing is wasted.


We are building a small scale Tap room with four year round brews & mead, four seasonal and numerous small batch experimental brews. We don’t seek to get too big too fast and we enjoy the small-scale capacity we are doing. We leave room for growth but at scalable level without debt. We add a wide range of flavors to hit a variety of your taste buds needs. If you like Lagers, Mead, IPAs, stouts, ports, ales and experimentALES, then you'll love Dog River Brewing!
