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?
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.
