Some of you may remember the statement about a month ago referencing the fact that the ABC was not approving Founders Backwoods Bastard or Dirty Bastard labels for sale in Alabama.

Free the Hops received word earlier this afternoon from Birmingham Beverage Company that the “ABC has reconsidered and has sent a letter to Founders requesting they resubmit for the ‘bastard’ series label approval”.

This is great news for craft beer drinkers in Alabama and these beers should be hitting shelves in the state soon.  Thank you for all of your support in helping to make this happen.
