“The Virginia Brewers Collaboration was a great opportunity to work with our friends and neighbors in the Virginia craft brewing community to bring awareness to the quality beer that’s made in our state. It also allows us to share our distribution footprint with these breweries and gives beer drinkers in other areas a sneak peek of what Virginia has to offer,” said Brewmaster Jason Oliver. “This Adventure Pack was a great way for the breweries to foster the spirit of cooperation and fraternity.”
The Virginia Brewers Collaboration Adventure Pack is available now through June in bottled 12-packs and on draft throughout the Devils Backbone distribution footprint in Virginia, District of Columbia, Maryland, North Carolina, Tennessee, and West Virginia.
Devils Backbone beers are inspired by the great brewing traditions of Europe and the ingenuity of modern craft brewing. Devils Backbone has earned numerous accolades for its beers, exceling in the art of lager brewing in an ale dominated industry. The brewing team has received awards from the World Beer Cup, Australian International Beer Awards, Virginia Craft Brewers Fest, and the Great American Beer Festival® including national titles for GABF 2014 Mid-Sized Brewing Company and Brew Team of the Year, 2013 Small Brewing Company and Small Brewing Company Brewer of the Year and 2012 Small Brewpub and Small Brewpub Brewer of the Year.
Devils Backbone operates two breweries in central Virginia: Basecamp Brewpub & Meadows (200 Mosbys Run, Roseland, VA) the original brewery, restaurant and outdoor beer and dining area, located at the foot of the Blue Ridge Mountains in scenic Nelson County; and the Outpost Brewery & Tap Room, a state-of-the-art production brewery and tap room (50 North Wind Lane, Lexington, VA).
In 2008, founders Steve Crandall and his wife Heidi, inspired by a skiing trip where they had their first taste of German beer, opened the doors to Devils Backbone Brewing Company in the heartland of Virginia. Basecamp Brewpub was an instant regional success and with so many beer lovers asking where they could purchase the brews, they broke ground on the Outpost in 2011. Anticipated to produce 10,000 barrels of beer in the first ten years of operation, the Outpost reached 45,000 barrels in the first three years and recently completed an additional expansion to reach 250,000 barrels.
