From Devils Backbone:
LEXINGTON, VA – Devils Backbone Brewing Company introduces Ginger Brau,
a honey-hued lager infused with three types of ginger during the brewing process. Ginger Brau (4.8% ABV, 16 IBU) is light to medium on body with a snappy, lively ginger finish.
“What I love about Ginger Brau is the refreshing crisp body with the subtle ginger zing in the finish. It is so crushable,” said Brewmaster Jason Oliver. “The flavors in Ginger Brau will spice up any holiday meal, but the beer pairs exceedingly well with pumpkin or apple-pie.”
Ginger Brau is the final release in the 2016 Daypack Series and it’s the first time the beer has been available in package. The quick, easy, and mobile beers of the Daypack Series are made to complement your passion, wherever it may take you. Daypack beers are all sessionable, under 5% ABV. The approachable styles are canned for maximum mobility to throw into your daypack any time of year and head out to craft an adventure.
Ginger Brau is available now through January in cans and on draft throughout the Devils Backbone distribution footprint in Virginia, District of Columbia, Maryland, North Carolina, Tennessee, and West Virginia.
Devils Backbone beers are inspired by the great brewing traditions of Europe and the ingenuity of modern craft brewing. Devils Backbone has earned numerous accolades for its beers, exceling in the art of lager brewing in an ale dominated industry. The brewing team has received medals from the World Beer Cup, Australian International Beer Awards, Virginia Craft Brewers Fest and the Great American Beer Festival® including national titles for GABF 2014 Mid-Sized Brewing Company and Brew Team of the Year, 2013 Small Brewing Company and Small Brewing Company Brewer of the Year and 2012 Small Brewpub and Small Brewpub Brewer of the Year.
Devils Backbone operates two breweries in central Virginia: Basecamp Brewpub & Meadows (200 Mosbys Run, Roseland, VA) the original brewery, restaurant and outdoor beer and dining area, located at the foot of the Blue Ridge Mountains in scenic Nelson County; and the Outpost Brewery & Tap Room, a state-of-the-art production brewery and tap room (50 North Wind Lane, Lexington, VA).
In 2008, founders Steve Crandall and his wife Heidi, inspired by a skiing trip where they had their first taste of German beer, opened the doors to Devils Backbone Brewing Company in the heartland of Virginia. Basecamp Brewpub was an instant regional success and with so many beer lovers asking where they could purchase the brews, they broke ground on the Outpost in 2011. Anticipated to produce 10,000 barrels of beer in the first ten years of operation, the Outpost reached 45,000 barrels in the first three years and recently completed an additional expansion to reach 250,000 barrels.
