Back Forty Beer Vinegar

Dec 03, 2014

Several years ago, Jamie Ray, our very first brewmaster and now head distiller at High Ridge Spirits, sent a batch of beer down to Jim Eddins and crew at Perdido Vineyards to convert to vinegar.  Jim has been making award-winning vinegars in Perdido for over ten years.  That first batch got passed around the brewery and was gone…quick! 

Last year we started selling beer vinegar to select accounts in our markets as well as in our tap room and online.  Back Forty Beer Vinegar is now available for purchase in Whole Foods Birmingham and at select restaurants in our footprint.  Of course, you can still get it in the tap room or online here, for $8 a bottle.  Read more about beer vinegar here.
