I don't drink, but my companions said the locally brewed beer was great. They also make cheese and honey that you can buy. The food was excellent

We were in the area celebrating our uncle's 80th Birthday. Our week long festivities included a tasting and lunch at your brewery. We were most impressed with your beer selections and our burgers were yummy! Your staff is so gracious. We are advertising in Colorado with your Liquid Folk Art t-shirt and on the app Untappd.

These guys do business right. I enjoy their beer, Truck Stop Honey is my favorite. The owner gave me a tour a while back. They are nice people there and glad they are experiencing so much success with their great brews.

The truck stop honey is our favorite brew coming from this awesome place! We found out about this brewery when a good friend recommended this gem. The people are so great and the beer will not disappoint! We had the privilege of actually attending a wedding reception here a few years ago and it was one of the funniest receptions... More

I went to Back Forty as I was visiting some family in Gadsden. I've been to quite a few microbreweries, having lived in Atlanta I am quite familiar with the set-up. I was impressed by the quality of the beer here. I thought it was a fantastic microbrew taste in the middle of Gadsden. If this place were set-up in... More

We got a tour of this business and it was awesome. We also got to meet the owner and he is such a personable man who is very humble. You can also tell that he is very passionate about this company. Well worth going to

If you're looking for an average hamburger , below average craft beer and atrocious service , this is your place. We visited late on a Saturday afternoon and waited 1 hour + to get an overcooked burger served all by itself and nothing but excuses from the wait staff as to why and how it could possibly take that long...

We arrived just after they opened. Staff was very friendly and helpful with beer recommendations. We enjoyed a flight with a burger and a BLT. This was well worth the drive over from Rome, GA! We will definitely be back with empty growlers next time.
