Haint Blue | Mobile's Brewery

Haint Blue Brewing is proud to call Mobile, Alabama its home. The uniquely southern culture of our port city establishes the foundation for our passion of creating great beer.

Taproom Crowdfunding Project

Our vision for Haint Blue Brewing Company is to create a microbrewery that not only distributes fine craft beer, but a sanctuary for Mobilians to gather and share a cold beer, tell stories and revel in the rich history of Mobile. To create this vision, we are building out a one-of-a-kind taproom and we want to invite Mobilians to invest in this endeavor. We opened up our doors to Mobilians and craft beer fans through our WeFunder crowdfunding campaign to raise the funds to create our vision.

About Haint Blue

In the South, many people painted their porch ceilings a specific shade of Haint Blue, a soft blue-green, to ward off evil spirits called “haints.”

Haint Blue Brewing is positioned in a unique location in historic downtown Mobile. Housed in the old Crystal Ice warehouse, the brewery property is separated from the burial place of Joe Cain only by a 19th century brick wall. The downtown Mobile skyline sets the perfect backdrop to stop in, relax and enjoy a beer.

While stationed in Washington, the brewery’s founder, Keith Sherrill, enjoyed the culture of the brew houses nestled at the base of Mount Ranier—one of the most fertile hop growing regions in the world. When moving back to his home state of Alabama, he wanted to bring that culture he enjoyed so much with him. That began the pursuit to create great beer in an even greater city.

His pursuit led him to work as a student in a commercial brewery based in Colorado, validate his business plan and product through a rigorous post-graduate business program at Stanford University, and travel internationally to the Westvleteren Brewery at the Trappist Abbey of Saint Sixtus.
