One of the things that is great about this area is all the wineries and breweries that are based in the Blue Ridge Mountains! When my husband and I first moved here, I remember it was one of the first things that Buddy shared with us! He was so excited to tell us about all the great places in the area to get a cold brew or a nice glass of wine! We quickly fell in love with that aspect of our town too! One of our favorite breweries is located right here in Rockbridge county only four short miles from town.
Devil's Backbone Outpost is the bottling location for the Devil's Backbone brand. Most people are familiar with Devil's Backbone Base camp, located in Nelson County, but few know of the brewery location that lies 60 miles west. Devil's Backbone is home to more than 15 draft beers, with brewery tours, flights, and growlers, it's the perfect place to share a drink with your buddies. They have everything from food truckts o trivia, to live music on their agenda. It truly is the place to be on any given night. You can find locals hanging out after work, or getting together for a meeting in the taproom.
We feel like one rule of thumb when it comes to trying new places, is that you can't go wrong when you head out to where the locals go! And that's definitely true for the taproom! Devil's Backbone is the perfect place for a groom and his men to spend the day before their wedding! You can start your afternoon with lunch in town, or check out the schedule for food truck times at the brewery. Then, head on in for a tour and a flight! For earlier weddings, head on out before the rehearsal the day before for the same great experience! Check out some photos from our latest visit and don't forget to drop by on your next day in town!
