The beer will start flowing at 6:30 p.m., with live music from Bryan Lee, aka the Braille Blues Daddy, starting at 9 p.m. A cover charge will be in effect at 8 p.m.

In September, Lucky Town announced that it had agreed to terms with a contract brewery and purchased a 30-barrel fermenting tank as it continued to plan for its own brewing facility in Mississippi. Under the agreement, Alabama’s Back Forty Beer Co. will brew and package Lucky Town’s beers. Lucky Town, meanwhile, will be responsible for beer recipes, distribution, sales and marketing.

The Lucky Town team plans to eventually open a brewery in the Jackson area.

Lucky Town Brewing agrees to terms with contract brewer, buys 30-barrel fermenter

September 07, 2012 By: mike Category: Breweries, Craft beer

Lucky Town Brewing Company logoLucky Town Brewing Company announced this week that it’s agreed to terms with a contract brewery as Lucky Town continues to plan for its own brewing facility in Mississippi.

Lucky Town has selected Alabama’s Back Forty Beer Co., which will brew and package Lucky Town’s beers. Lucky Town, meanwhile, will be responsible for beer recipes, distribution, sales and marketing, according to a release.

We chose to go with contract brewing for several reasons. 1) Brewing can be expedited as there is no need to wait on our own facility to be designed, built, and approved. 2) Lucky Town’s beers can be tested in the market while we are working on our production facility. 3) Having our beer in the market will allow us to range sales and accurately size our production equipment to meet demand.

The Lucky Town team plans to open Mississippi’s second brewery in the Jackson area.

In March, through the Kickstarter fundraising website, Lucky Town raised $22,304 to open a microbrewery, exceeding its goal. With proceeds from Kickstarter supporters, Lucky Town recently purchased its first 30-barrel fermenting tank, a 12-foot tall stainless steel vessel that will be used to ferment Lucky Town’s first batches of beer. The tank (seen in the photo below) has already been installed at Back Forty’s brewery in Gadsden.

As distribution grows, we will begin adding additional tanks at Back Forty’s facility to accommodate the demand which will allow Lucky Town to brew more styles simultaneously. Once Lucky Town’s brewery is built, all of our fermenters will then be moved from Back Forty’s facility into our very own facility here in Mississippi.

Lucky Town has also signed distribution agreements with three in-state distributors — Capital City Beverages, F.E.B. Distributing, and Stokes Distributing — providing coverage from the Jackson Area to the Mississippi Gulf Coast.

Keep an eye on Facebook, Twitter and Lucky Town’s website for the latest news on the craft beer start-up.
