Alabama is nicknamed the Yellowhammer State, after the state bird. Alabama is also known as the "Heart of Dixie" and the Cotton State. Following World War II, Alabama experienced growth as the economy of the state changed from one primarily based on agriculture to one with diversified interests. The power of the Solid South in Congress gained the establishment or expansion of multiple United States Armed Forces installations, which helped to bridge the gap between an agricultural and industrial economy during the mid-20th century. The state economy in the 21st century is based on management, automotive, finance, manufacturing, aerospace, mineral extraction, healthcare, education, retail, and technology. While Alabama has numerous commercial agricultural crops there are only 5 apple orchards registered in the state, and now two commercial cider makers.
Red Clay Brewing- has its roots firmly entrenched in the South. The founders of the Company were all born and raised here. The “red clay” that is native to this region of the south and what we all knew so well growing up became a natural moniker for our business. Red Clay Brewing simply represents us: our history and the South we love and call home. Opelika is a Muskogee word meaning Big Swamp, and this became the inspiration for one of our first beers: Big Swamp Stout. Another one of our beers, Hop Jubilee, is inspired by the late night “jubilee’s” we attended of the eastern shore of Mobile Bay.
Dixie Southern Cidery at Singin’ River Brewing Company- started flowing out of two passions: a love of craft beer and an expertise in manufacturing. Rob and Michelle Jones opened the doors of the Singin’ River Brewing Company, in 2014, with a shared passion for craft beers. Rob began his interest in making beer in the 90’s—experimenting with brewing his own beers out of his apartment in Knoxville. After he and Michelle started dating, she also started enjoying the craft beer community when she would visit Denver. Together they started touring craft breweries across the US as a shared hobby. Once they were married, Rob moved to Florence, Alabama so he and Michelle (a Florence native) could start their new life together, but his job still required a lot of travel. After missing their son crawling for the first time, Rob realized the traveling had to stop. That’s when they both decided to combine their two passions to create the first craft brewery in Florence. Combining Rob’s knowledge of craft brewing and Michelle’s expertise in manufacturing, they created a business plan to put Florence, AL on the map for craft beer. Now they are bringing a hometown, quality beer to The Shoals.
