DEVILS BACKBONE TO HOST 75-MILE BREWERY 2 BREWERY BIKE RIDE
LEXINGTON, VA – On Saturday, September 10, Devils Backbone Brewing Company will welcome cyclists in its first Brewery 2 Brewery ride to benefit the National Ovarian Cancer Coalition. This 75-mile recreational ride will start at the Devils Backbone Outpost Brewery & Tap Room (50 North Wind Lane, Lexington) and wind through the Virginia heartland on paved state and county maintained roads, including the scenic Blue Ridge Parkway. Cyclists will finish at Basecamp Brewpub & Meadows (200 Mosbys Run, Roseland) where they will be greeted with live music by Mississippi Leg Hound and cold Devils Backbone Daypack beers.
“I’m excited to see people push themselves on this ride,” says Coey Jenkins, Quality Manager at Devils Backbone and an avid biker. “It’s a hard course, but riding up and over is a major accomplishment – fun and high fives is what it’s all about.”
The ride will begin with a rolling start at 8:30 a.m. and all riders must depart by 9 a.m. Registration is $65 and cyclists can register online now. The online route cue sheet is also available. Registered cyclists will receive a $10 voucher for food and drinks, which can also be used to purchase beer for those 21 and older. Three Kroger sponsored rest stops will also be available to riders along the course. Exclusive Devils Backbone club cut jerseys, which feature the Devils Backbone logo, as well as detailed topography maps of Lexington and Roseland regions, are available online for purchase in both men’s and women’s sizes.
Riders can make reservations for a post-ride shuttle that will bring cyclists back to the Outpost Brewery to retrieve their vehicles. Bicycles are not allowed on the shuttle, but a secure bike corral will be set up at Basecamp.

Devils Backbone Brewing Company
Devils Backbone operates two breweries in central Virginia: Basecamp Brewpub & Meadows the original brewery, restaurant and the Meadows, the new 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.
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.
