Lunch at Devils Backbone

Summertime is the time to do a little exploring. My husband and I had opportunity to have lunch at Devil's Backbone in Roseland, VA. This is a brewpub in the finest sense of the word. They have an expansive menu, and everything we tried was delicious. The beer cheese spread, made with their Vienna Lager, was superb. And their summer beer selections are tasty and adventurous.
I was surprised to find out that I really enjoyed their BERLINER METRO WEISS German -style Sour Ale. Gold Medal 2012 Great American Beer Festival German-style Sour Ale Lactobacilli were added to this brew to provide a tart & snappy sourness. Straw in color and light bodied. Berliner Weiss is often served with a shot of syrup to sweeten it; traditionally woodruff or raspberry. 3.8 abv, 21IBUs I ordered it with blackberry syrup. And then opted for a growler to take home. If you are headed through Nelson County, make Devil's Backbone a stop on your travels. Here is a link to their website so you can peruse their menu of food and beer. Devils Backbone
