WOMAN OWNED. VETERAN BREWED.
We celebrate our service and the service of others.
We come together regardless of our race, gender, sexual preference, or political beliefs. Why you ask? Because when you walk through our doors, you're home. We treat everyone here with respect and we will always ask that you do the same.
After 13 years in the Army Torie Fisher decided to take a hobby and make into a way of life. After learning to brew from a friend in her unit, Torie developed a passion for craft beer and began home brewing. When the time was right, she decided to open a brewery in Forked River, NJ and so with that, Backward Flag Brewing Company was born.
In September of 2015 we offically opened our doors, and began serving the beer you all know and love. We started on a small 2BBL (62 gallons) system and as we grew, so did the demand for our beer. After countless weekends of being closed because we ran our of beer, we made the upgrade in 2018 to a 10BBL (310 gallon) system so we could continue to brew all for you-our customers, the beer you have all grown to love.
why backward flag?
Cheers to us, and those like us!
An ode to the Army uniform, the Backward Flag is a symbol of always moving forward and never retreating. Worn on the right shoulder of the military uniform, the flag is worn facing the opposite direction than what we traditionally see. As soldiers, we are trained to always place the mission first, and continue moving forward towards success and accomplishment.
