Backwater Brewing Co 13


Backwater began in 2017 as Backwater Cider Company at Lucky Town Brewing Company in Jackson MS, bringing craft hard cider to the great state of Mississippi and becoming the first and only cidery in the state. After the unfortunate closing of Lucky Town in 2019, Backwater Cider Company's future was unclear. Then in October 2020, Backwater was reborn in Old Towne Olive Branch MS. This new chapter of Backwater includes more than just hard cider; you can expect a diverse rotation of beer, cider, cyser, and session mead.

Grain + Water + Hops + Yeast

You can expect a constant rotation of beer, including seasonal, traditional, modern, experimental, and sometimes extreme styles.

Hard Cider

apple juice + yeast

We produce modern/new world style ciders using dessert/table apples (rather than traditional cider apple varieties). We also use other non-traditional ingredients in some of our cider, such as hops, other fruit juices, spices, lactose, herbs, etc.


Mississippi honey + apple juice + water + yeast

Our cysers feature local Mississippi honey and are lower in ABV than most other cysers you can find around the country. Like our ciders, some of our cysers feature non-traditional ingredients.


Mississippi honey + water + yeast

Unlike most traditional meads, our meads are very sessionable around 4-6% ABV and are carbonated. Featuring local Mississippi honey!
