Gadsden's Back Forty Beer Co. won the 2014 World Beer Championship Packaging Competition for its Naked Pig Pale Ale product.

Back Forty won the gold medal in the form category, as well as functional innovation. The company also took recognition in overall best case.

The competition was sponsored by the Beverage Testing Institute.

Back Forty Business Manager David Carn designed the packaging. CEO Jason Wilson said it took more than a year to complete the six pack case design, which is made of completely recyclable material.

"We set out with a goal of reducing the materials used in our packaging, while also providing a functional innovation for our customers," Wilson said. "The new six pack case accomplishes both of our objectives. It is easier to store in the refrigerator, and easier to transport."
