Breweries Down the Byway
The Coastal Connection Scenic Byway takes you around the Mobile Bay area. Starting at the Mobile Welcome Center, take I-10 to State Route 193 south to Dauphin Island. Take the Mobile Bay Ferry to SR 180, then head north again on SR 59, turning west on U.S. 98 until reaching I-10 to head back to Mobile.
Along the way, stop at the Pelican Pub or Islanders Restaurant on Dauphin Island to grab a bite to eat while you wait for the ferry so you can enjoy a pint or two at one of many popular breweries later. Once you get off the ferry, you can visit:
- Big Beach Brewing on 24th Ave. in Gulf Shores
- BierShack Taproom on AL-59 in Foley
- Fairhope Brewing Company on Nichols Ave. in Fairhope

- Old Majestic Brewing on St. Louis St. in Mobile
- Braided River Brewing Company on St. Louis St. in Mobile
- Iron Hand Brewing, LLC, on State St. in Mobile

Some of these breweries offer a restaurant, while others have food trucks. Don’t miss out on the most popular Gulf Coast dishes while trying their custom brews.
