About Us

The story about Devils Backbone Brewing Company goes like this. Years ago, our founders, Steve and Heidi Crandall, were on a ski trip in the Alps when they tried their first craft beer, a German Weisse at a brewpub.

So to satisfy their thirst for a local haunt that served craft European-style beers, they started a whole brewery complete with a full-on brewpub for locals and visitors. It became a place where folks could drink and tell stories about their time on the trail or ski slope, or all of the above.

They named it Devils Backbone, the same name some brave surveyors, including Thomas Jefferson’s dad, Peter, called this hard-to-summit mountain region almost 300 years ago. Kinda poetic, right?

In 2016 Devils Backbone Brewing Company was acquired by Anheuser-Busch. Since then, we’ve continued to brew award-winning beers that we’re proud of, as well as share our beers with more beer friends than ever before!

Well there’s your history, and here’s a bit of our philosophy: we think being slow by nature is of mighty importance. It’s why we take our time brewing our lagers and it’s why we’re smack dab in the middle of the Blue Ridge Mountains. If you’re ever in Virginia, we’d love for you to stop by the brewery and have a beer with us.
