Devils Backbone Tap Takeover Beer Menu (Tasting Menu to follow soon!):

Bright Tangerine Sparkling Ale

Dry. Tangerine. Effervescent. These words don’t really pop in your head when you think of beer, but then again, there’s nothing quite like Bright Tangerine Sparkling Ale. This brew is low calorie, gluten removed, with a dry and bubbly finish. The kicker is we load it up with heaps of natural tangerine flavor, making it a little brighter than your average ale!

Malts: Pilsner, Pale Wheat, Acidulated Malt
Hops: Amarillo
Additions: Tangerine Crystals, Tangerine Extract, Tangerine Peel

ABV: 4.8% I IBU: 3

Eight Point IPA

Eight Point IPA is the first beer ever brewed at Devils Backbone! It’s got a nice hoppy presence but is approachable. It’s gold, medium-bodied, and made with four malts, plus brash American hop varieties like Simcoe, Centennial, Comet, Amarillo, and Citrus. 

Malts: Pilsner, Vienna, CaraStan, Torrified Wheat, Black Malt, Dextrose
Hops: Simcoe, Centennial, Comet, Amarillo, Citra

ABV: 6.2% I IBU: 45

Trail Angel Weiss

Trail angels are folks who offer Appalachian Trail hikers trail magic, or unexpected acts of kindness, like sharing food or giving them a lift. Well, Trail Angel Weiss is that in beer form. We partnered with the Appalachian Trail Conservancy and donate $1 per case sold of Trail Angel Weiss to help preserve and protect the trail. The beer itself is honey colored with a light to medium body, soft palette from malted wheat, plus hints of banana and clove. It’s the style of beer that inspired us to open this very place.


Pilsner, Pale, Wheat, Acidulated, Dark Munich, CaraFoam, CaraAmber



ABV: 4.9% I IBU: 12

Vienna Lager

This is the Devil's Backbone Ol' Faithful! It’s the beer everybody, including professional beer judges, just seems to dig. Maybe they like how it’s smooth, medium-bodied, and semi-sweet, while not too heavy or bitter. Maybe it’s the amber color, or the blend of four imported malts balanced by two Germanic hops, or the fact that it takes five weeks to get right. Or maybe it’s all the above.

Malts: Vienna, Pilsner, Dark Munich, CaraAmber
Hops: Northern Brewer, Saaz

ABV: 5.2% I IBU: 18
