FAQ

Where can I find Back Forty beer?

Check out the Find Our Beer map for locations that carry our beer. We recommend calling before hauling to ensure they have it in stock. With our seasonal beers, availability might be low. But, the best way to grab your favorite brew is to visit us here at the brewery!

 

Do you host events?

Please contact the appropriate Taproom Manager for more information on catering options and booking dates. For Gadsden, email jessica@backfortybeer.com. For Birmingham, email doug@backfortybham.com.

 

Are children welcome at the brewery?

Yes. Both Gadsden and Birmingham taprooms are kid-friendly, however childish adults are forbidden.

Will you send me Back Forty beer labels, coasters or bottle caps for my collection?

That's kind of cheating isn't it? We had to drink all the beers when we decorated our college apartment back in the day. But sure… Send a self addressed and stamped envelope (SASE) to the Gadsden location with enough postage to get the items back to you and we will fill requests as excess packaging materials become available. Or visit our online store for more options.

Will you ship beer to me?

Unfortunately we cannot, that's prohibited. But, we like the way you think! Request it at your favorite store or bottle shop and they will contact our distributors. To speak with our sales representative, please email brad@backfortybeer.com for more information.

Will you sponsor my event?

That's a firm maybe! Please fill out this form and email it to brad@backfortybeer.com for consideration.

How to I get a job at Back Forty?

For the Gadsden location, check out our latest job postings HERE or send your resume to info@backfortybeer.com and we will forward it to the appropriate department.

Can I bring my dog to the brewery?

Yes! We’re a group of dog lovers, but unfortunately your pupper has to stay out on the front porch while you visit due to us serving food. We'll provide the H2O, collapsible water bowls for purchase and mini pools. Visit us in Gadsden on the first Wednesday of every month for Yappy Hour!

 

Can my band play in the taproom?

Sure! Only if we can pay you in beer and food (just kidding). But, let's chat. Send your demo or mixtape to the appropriate Taproom Manager and see if you’re ready to share the stage that hosted Bernie Worrell, Jason Isbell and David CARN! For Gadsden, email jessica@backfortybeer.com. For Birmingham, email doug@backfortybham.com.

 

Can we come take a tour of the brewery?

Yes. Tours are informal and at the discretion of the taproom or production staff when available. If you'd like to schedule a tour for a large group or reserve a time, contact jessica@backfortybeer.com for Gadsden, and doug@backfortybham.com for Birmingham.

 

Can I buy a keg? How much beer can I buy today?

Alabama state law allows up to one case of beer per person per day to be purchased directly from the brewery. That means you can buy 288 ounces of product in growlers, cans and bottles. Unfortunately because of the size limit, we cannot sell you kegs. But, we do have several local retailers that offer them; if you're in Gadsden, try Cash Saver.

Can I talk to somebody about this thing I am selling?

All solicitations are by appointment only. PLEASE do not just show up and ask to speak to someone about a sale, sponsorship or business opportunity. You can send an email to info@backfortybeer.com and the appropriate manager will reach out to you to set up an appointment.
