Dread River Distilling Co. is a new distillery in downtown Birmingham, AL that draws on the centuries-old craft of creating, curating, and distilling quality spirits. The distillery is attached to a 4,000 sq. ft. venue which functions as both a bar and event space, servicing cocktails, beer and food on a nightly basis. The name Dread River comes from a legend of a river flowing beneath downtown Birmingham. This myth encompasses the spirit behind Dread River. It symbolizes the journey it took to bring this business to life, the challenges we all face in our own lives and the chance to celebrate our accomplishments with a toast.
