Seven years ago Devils Backbone Brewing joined the Nelson County craft brewing industry. In those days there were only two, and no distilleries, just wineries. Today that number has grown tremendously!

    Very cool! Love the Striped Bass Ale. I’m from Lexington, lived and worked in RVA for 30 years and relocated to Nelson this year. Great wings, Burger and bring back the oysters!
