A familiar name to Alabama beer lovers is looking to create a brand new experience with the opening of a Birmingham brewery, restaurant and entertainment venue.

Back Forty Beer Company is opening its first satellite location with Back Forty Beer Company-Birmingham. The offshoot of the established Gadsden-based brewery is investing $1.3 million to convert a former 6,230-square-foot warehouse into an attraction with up to 30 new jobs.

Doug Brown is the owner and CEO of the Birmingham satellite of Back Forty.
