Devils Backbone Brewing Company is committed to living out our mission to enrich our community in all that we do at Basecamp Brewpub & Meadows and the Outpost Brewery & Taproom.
Devils Backbone Brewing Company is proud to have supported many philanthropic causes across our community since its founding in 2008. To continue that tradition, we’re pleased to introduce the Heartland Initiative, a comprehensive program that serves as an opportunity for Devils Backbone Brewing Company to further aid our diversifying and expanding community through philanthropy, partnerships, and sustainability efforts. This work also reflects our core values.
The Heartland Initiative focuses on five core pillars of work that represent a community group that is near and dear to Devils Backbone: Neighbors, Industry, Family, Environment, and Operations. It is our hope that by focusing our efforts, we increase our ability to make a greater and more sustainable impact across the Virginia Heartland. Check out highlights from our first year of the program in the 2017 Impact Report!
