Paw Paw's Peach Wheat brewed by the Back Forty Beer Company in Gadsden Alabama
Spring is here, which means Back Forty Beer Co.’s Paw Paw’s Peach Wheat is
back. As one of Back Forty’s most popular seasonal beers, this unique peach
wheat ale celebrates the return of warm weather by bringing together two
Southern staples for spring: peaches and craft beer.
With the goal of brewing a more enhanced and flavorful beer, Back Forty did
extensive research and testing to create an improved recipe for this year’s
brew. This American-style wheat ale boasts a new, all-natural recipe, is
fermented on 100 percent peaches and contains no artificial flavors.
“We wanted to find a natural way to highlight the peach flavors already present
in the beer so we tested and researched several varieties of hops and yeast
strains that added natural fruit esters and really brought out the peach aroma,”
said Back Forty CEO Jason Wilson. “Couple that with the creaminess from the
Golden Naked Oats, and you have a smooth, approachable beer that highlights the
tangy and refreshing flavor people expect from an Alabama peach.”
The new recipe is also the first widely released and packaged beer by Back Forty
that is unfiltered. The unfiltered process naturally retains more body of the
beer allowing for a more flavorful experience.
The light, crisp quality of Paw Paw’s Peach Wheat makes this beer perfect for
pairing with a variety of dishes including Alabama Gulf Seafood, pork and even
desserts. Check out “The Barn” on Back Forty’s website to learn more about food
and beer pairings and recipes that incorporate craft beer.
Paw Paw’s Peach Wheat is available for a limited time throughout spring and
summer in 12-ounce glass bottles and on draft in Alabama, Georgia, Florida,
Mississippi and Tennessee markets.
