Back Forty Beer Company and Ruffner Mountain Nature Preserve are proud to present Beer on the Back Porch.

Join us on Friday, September 19th from 6pm to 10pm as we celebrate the weekend with delicious food, great music, and cold beer. Food will be provided by Downstairs Diner, Back Forty will be pouring cold ones, and you can enjoy it all to the musical stylings of The Bill Ledbetter Project and Andy Spain & Lost Astronaut.

You’ll also have a chance to meet our newest Animal Ambassador, the Speckled Kingsnake. We’ll be having a raffle for chances to name him, too.

$25 gets you dinner, three drink tokens, music, and fun. Register online or pay at the door.
