Stories From The Trail
Devils Backbone Stories From The Trail
Devils Backbone Brewing Company opened our doors and began brewing beer in the Heartland of Virginia in 2008. We are honored to reach 10 years of brewing consistently award-winning lagers. To celebrate our 10 year anniversary, we collaborated on a few beers with some of our friends from other breweries.
We’ve known these brewers for a long time, many well over 10 years. This book is a collection of tales about how a couple of our founders came to become friends with some of the wonderful brewers represented in this collaboration variety pack. We hope you enjoy drinking these beers as much as we enjoyed brewing them with our friends from all over the world.

This is a collaboration with our friends at Sibling Revelry Brewing in West Lake, OH. It’s deep amber hue, full of both caramel malt and citrus hop character. A blend of two old school craft recipes.
