Local Roots Restaurant Beer Dinner Featuring Devils Backbone Adds To The Brewery’s Week Of Meet and Greet (and taste) Events!

The question begins to stir in your head, I know – should I just go ahead and take vacation the first week of February?  In what has become nearly a week’s worth of events to celebrate the anticipated mid February distribution of Devils Backbone beer from the brewery’s new location near Lexington, Local Roots Restaurant will get things rolling with a beer dinner featuring the brewery on February 8th.  The Grandin Road area restaurant is known for dedicating its entire draft line-up to craft beer, often with a nod towards regionally or Virginia based breweries.  Events begin with a sneak preview event at Blue 5 on the 19th of January, then heat back up with the Local Roots dinner, and continue through the end of the week, including stops the Salem Macados location, the Market Building downtown, and Buffalo Wild Wings in Roanoke County.

Tickets for the beer dinner with Devils Backbone are not yet available to the public, yet the restaurant is tying the event to the planned introduction of its Local Roots Beer Club on January 4th.  Club members will be able to purchase tickets to this and other future events before they are made public, and will also be able to take advantage of a $5 sampling of all eight of the restaurants’ tap selections during any visit to the restaurant.  Previously, the specially priced sampling was only available once a month.  Membership will be $5 and will also include food specials as well.

Details for the Local Roots beer dinner with DBB will follow.  The only thing to focus on is how your week at the beach is still months – chilly, blustery months may I add – away.  So put this and the other dates in your calendar, the winter is about to become a good bit more bearable.  From the beautiful brewpub just up the road near Charlottesville to the impressive production brewery in Rockbridge County, one of Virginia’s own craft breweries is readying for its appearance in stores and on taps around Virginia.  So come out and support Devils Backbone during its rollout week of events!  Suddenly, there’s a reason for time off during the winter.
