Devils Backbone Releases Four Seasonal Beers

imageFrom Devils Backbone:

LEXINGTON, VA – Devils Backbone Brewing Company has released three seasonal

brews in August: Pumpkin Hunter, Bravo Four Point, and O’Fest. An enticing variety of styles

and flavors are represented with these releases that are now available. Pumpkin Hunter is an ale

brewed with pumpkin and spices, Bravo Four Point is a session IPA, and O’Fest, is an old school

inspired Oktoberfest beer.

“Each of our new releases brings a different component and approach; you have hoppy and

sessionable, traditional and malty, and seasonally spiced. This mix really speaks to the vibrancy of

craft beer,” says Brewmaster Jason Oliver.

Each of these beers offers a different opportunity to craft an adventure as summer

transitions into fall.

Pumpkin Hunter (5.1% ABV, 14 IBU)

Pumpkin Hunter is the fourth release in the Trail Blazer Series. Named for the huntsman

who roams the forests of Nelson County, Pumpkin Hunter brings Devils Backbone’s typical balance

to a pumpkin ale. Brewmaster Jason Oliver designed the flavors to layer like liquid pumpkin pie. The

malts impart a graham cracker pie crust character around a rich, subtly sweet pumpkin and spice

body. It’s the ultimate comfort beer! Fall, amber, spice.

Our Trail Blazers stray from the beaten path into a world of robust and daring beers

featuring bigger, bolder flavors for fueling your spirit of adventure.

Availability: Six-pack bottles and on draft August through October

Bravo Four Point (4.4% ABV, 50 IBU)

The fourth release in our Daypack series is Bravo Four Point. Golden copper in color, light

to medium in body with an intense hop character that comes exclusively from kettle and dry

hopping with Bravo hops. Orange, blossom, hop.

Easy! Quick! Mobile! Our Daypack Series features sessionable beers to put in your day pack

and head out to craft your adventure.

Availability: Six-pack cans and on draft August through October

O’Fest (5.9% ABV, 20 IBU)

O’Fest is Devils Backbone’s old school inspired Oktoberfest beer. It is reddish amber in

color, medium in body, with rich malty notes of caramel and toasted dark bread. Brewed with

imported malts & hops and a traditional decoction mash for authentic depth of flavor that

exemplifies this traditional beer. Hoist a stein of O’Fest at your local beer hall. Smooth, malty,


Availability: Draft only August through October

These releases are available throughout the Devils Backbone distribution footprint of

Virginia, District of Columbia, Maryland, North Carolina, Tennessee, and West Virginia.

LEXINGTON, VA – Devils Backbone Brewing Company has a very special release for

August and Virginia Craft Beer Month! The Virginia Farmhouse Ale (7.4% ABV, 20 IBU) is

inspired by the great farmhouse brewing tradition of Belgium. All Virginia grown ingredients are

used for this rustic golden ale. Malt from Woods Mill Malting Company in Nelson County, hops

from Whipple Creek Farms in Rockbridge County, and honey from both Nelson and Rockbridge

counties go into this homage to Virginia agriculture. It is exclusively available on draft throughout

the Commonwealth.

“Using only brewing ingredients from Virginia farms, a Saison Farmhouse-style ale was a

natural fit. Virginia Farmhouse Ale is really a showcase of what local Virginia ingredients have to

offer through inspiration from the great rustic farmhouse brewing tradition of Belgium,” said

Brewmaster Jason Oliver.

Devils Backbone is proud to support local agriculture with this brew and work to create a

market in the craft beer industry for Virginia farmers. There’s a great economic benefit to marrying

craft brewing with local farming, especially in a state rich with natural resources like Virginia.

Brewing the Virginia Farmhouse Ale is Devils Backbone’s next step in strengthening the relationship

between the two industries.

Virginia Farmhouse Ale will be poured at the 5

August 20 at Devils Backbone Basecamp Brewpub & Meadows in Nelson County. The event will

feature more than 80 Virginia breweries, and there will also be on-site camping so visitors can enjoy

the Annual Virginia Craft Brewers Fest on

the entire day. Designated driver ticket options are also available. Full details and ticketing options

for Virginia Craft Brewers Fest can be found here.
