I paid a visit today to Back Forty Beer's brewery in downtown Gadsden, for an magazine story I'm working on. Brad Wilson showed me around, and I spoke at length with him, with founder Jason Wilson and with brewmaster Jamie Ray. Brad let me rummage around in this bag of Citra hops, which give Freckle Belly IPA much of its flavor.

Back Forty's working on getting the equipment and supplies to produce 22-ounce bottles at the Gadsden plant. It'll be a while yet,but Freckly Belly will be one of the first things to go in the bigger containers, Brad Wilson told me. (Containers bigger than 16 ounces became legal Aug. 1 under the Gourmet Bottle Act, approved by the Alabama Legislature this spring.)
