Back Forty Beer Company
About The Brand
Back Forty Beer Company's name is inspired by an old agricultural term referring to the 40 acres of land situated furthest from the barn. The back 40 acres are historically the most challenging land to maintain and are often overlooked due to their remote location. Likewise, Alabama is widely seen as the wasteland for craft beer in America. With mass produced light beer being the drink of choice for many Southerners, the craft beer market here has been largely ignored. However, if you dig a little deeper into the story of the back 40 you will see that because the soil is rarely used, it's very fertile and is actually capable of producing a tremendous yield. And just like the farm, the Deep South's craft beer culture is fertile and primed for harvest. After ten years of countless challenges and the overwhelming support of the Gadsden community, Back Forty brewed its first production batch of beer at its new home in January of 2012. This also marked the release of two new Back Forty offerings, Freckle Belly IPA and Kudzu Porter. By March of 2012 Back Forty had received distribution offers from as far away as California & New York and demand was exceeding the ability to keep up.
