010: Jason Wilson – Back Forty Beer Company

Episode 010:

  • Jason Wilson is the founder and president of Back Forty which he started in 2009, though the planning and preparation for opening the brewery started many years before.

Worst Business Moment:

  • Two businesses basically being run out of one bank account……contract brewing in the southern part of the state while building out your production facility in the northern region and then you have an accidental contamination issue with about 1200 cases of beer….that almost drove Jason to say “I surrender!”

“Light Bulb” Moment:

  • So what do you do with 1200 cases of beer with a lactobacillus contamination??……….you make malt vinegar of course!!

Best Advice Ever Received:

  • “If no one seems to measure up to your standards, then maybe its time to check your yard stick”
