Back Forty Beer Company – Huntsville, AL

In the heart of Alabama’s craft beer revival, Back Forty Beer Company stands as a testament to resilience and innovation. Named after the challenging but fertile “back 40 acres” of agricultural land, Back Forty emerged in 2008, overcoming legal obstacles to bring craft beer culture to the Deep South. Founder Jason Wilson, with the support of Brewmaster Jamie Ray, navigated restrictive beer laws, secured funding creatively, and released acclaimed brews like Naked Pig Pale Ale and Truck Stop Honey Brown Ale.

Fast forward to 2018, and Back Forty expanded to Birmingham, joining its thriving craft beer scene. Today, with locations in Gadsden, Birmingham, and now Huntsville, Back Forty continues to grow, offering a diverse range of beers and a vibrant community space.

A Head for Profits had the privilege of working with Back Forty Beer Company on their Huntsville venture, installing a state-of-the-art craft beer system. The Huntsville location, like the back 40 acres, presented a unique challenge and opportunity for growth.

The A Head for Profits team installed four towers across three different bar locations within the facility. Inside the walk-in cooler, 4-way manifolds were placed to ensure a smooth flow to all tower locations. Four signature beers, sourced from brite tanks outside the cooler, required the installation of over 700 feet of trunk line. To maintain optimal beer temperature, three glycol chillers were installed.

The result? A visually stunning and efficient beer system that mirrors the artistry of Back Forty’s craft. The collaboration between Back Forty Beer Company and A Head for Profits reflects a shared commitment to quality and innovation in the craft beer landscape, and we are extremely proud of how well this project turned out. As the back 40 acres yield a bountiful harvest, our collaborative efforts on this project will yield a remarkable craft beer experience for Back Forty’s customers. Cheers to the success of Back Forty Beer Company and for this incredible opportunity to partner with them!
