In 2018, Devils Backbone Brewing Company will celebrate 10 years of crafting award-winning lagers! Staying true to those roots, their 2018 lineup is led by quality, authentic lagers and other beers inspired by the great brewing traditions of Europe. All of their beers represent their core brewing principles: balance, approachability, and trueness to style. If its been awhile since you have tried some DB beer, come out tonight from 5-7p and try them again!

The Beers:

  • Vienna Lager: “With its amber chestnut colored good looks and smooth malty finish, Vienna Lager was an obvious choice to put into package. It blends color and flavor without heaviness or bitterness. Just as Vienna Lagers historically inspired Munich’s Oktoberfest beers to evolve, this amber lager has evolved since we opened in 2008 into the award winning beer it is today. Experience the taste and tradition. Mild, Toasted, Caramel.” 5.2% ABV, 18 IBU
  • Black Lager: “Derived from the recipes of medieval Germanic brewers, our Black Lager embodies a millennium of refinement. Schwarzbier (literally: black beer) originates from eastern Germany and is a window into pre-modern brewing. Medieval brewers browned barley over open flames; today we get the characteristically subtle roasted flavor by using the finest toasted malts. This sophisticated little gem is fermented with lager yeast, and finishes quick and dry. Take this modern treasure home to your castle today! Subtle, Smooth, Coffee.” 5.1% ABV, 22 IBU
  • Cran-Gose: “Based on the traditional Gose brewing style, we added heaps of pureed cranberry to brew our refreshing Cran-Gose. Light and Fruity, Cran-Gose is pink hued with a cranberry aroma and a naturally tart finish. Light, Tart, Fruity.” 4% ABV, 4 IBU
  • Danzig: “A Baltic-style porter that blends a strong English porter with a Germanic lager approach. This fairly robust, strong black lager has notes of chocolate and coffee with hints of caramelized sugar. Black, Roast, Chocolate.” 8% ABV, 28 IBUdevils backbone
