  • Being steeped in Asheville NC beer culture since 1994, I love finding breweries in other areas where brewing is more recent. Back 40 makes solid beer, relatively standard selections - IPA, pale, brown, and others, some with additions and others just straight up. No Belgians, Germans, sours or other styles that I saw (this visit), just typical ales of the type you'll likely find regionally and well done. The brown is actually an ESB - not quite brown enough to really be a brown and though the grain bill may have been, it really should be darker to be a brown. Still a solid, tasty beer for what it is and I"m an ESB fan so, no matter. I'm not much for jalapeno additions (or IPA) but theirs was just right - just a hint of aroma and not too hot...just right. I could never find out if B40 uses traditional strains for the type (ie the actual genetic strain for the type, or closest) - I'm spoiled by that in AVL and my own beer, so it may just be Cali or East Coast. I don't really expect great food at breweries - but the pimiento bacon burger is off the chain for burgers - but don't bother w/ the fries. They were so overcooked they were hollow, and apparently in rancid oil (they stunk) so I chucked 'em. B40 is a solid in a nowhere town and the staff is friendly and helpful - talked with several of them. Would be nice to see some branching out into other (non typical) styles, but I don't live in the area or I'd lobby for it. Would def'ly recommend it!
  • Cozy atmosphere and very friendly staff. Came work my travel group from Atlanta, Ga.
  • Great beer, great food, good friends. What more does one need in their life?
  • Good voodoo79th
  • My friend and I went there for the first time. I called before I went, asking if dogs were aloud and she said yes. I have visited several breweries in Birmingham, which you can bring your dog. Mind you, it's a 100 degrees, outside. We got there, my dog is on a leash, we order, and when she brings our order, she said that she was wrong and my dog could not be inside, had to go outside, it was way to hot! So I got really mad, and would never go back there again. They need a better area outside, shaded for people to go. I will stick with Birmingham, especially Good Peoples brewery!
