The devil comes down to Richmond

A Nelson County brewery is now transporting its beers down Interstate 64 to Richmond.

Devils Backbone Brewing Co., which opened in 2008, kicked things off in Richmond with a Steal the Glass Night event Jan. 31 at Capital Ale House.  The brewery is also sponsoring a bar crawl Wednesday in the Fan.

The company is working with locally-based Brown Distributing and is  shipping five of its brews to Richmond, including its Eight Point IPA, Vienna Lager, Kilt Flasher, Ale of Fergus and Schwartz Bier.

Devils Backbone has a second location in Lexington that opened in December.

Also on the beer beat: California-based brewery Napa Smith recently started shipping a few of its beers to Richmond.

This is exciting news. I’ve been hoping for a while that some of the “brew ridge trails” breweries would come to Richmond.

Love that Vienna Lager!
