You can elevate your dining expectations.  You can customize your event at the base of the mountain to your exact specifications.  You can collaborate with chef, brewers, distillers, and mixologist to create an inspired menu uniquely your own.  Or you can leave it to us – entrusting decades worth of culinary expertise to curate the complete dining experience.

Whichever path you choose to the mountain, your party will experience DINING AT ELEVATION.

Arbor + Sheath

Dining at Elevation

ARBOR + SHEATH is dining at elevation – sourcing sustainable ingredients from pasture, fields, and streams as close to our mountain home as possible, including some ingredients grown on-site from our very own Hoop Houses.  We are purveyors of Southern food prepared in a storyteller’s tradition.  What elevates us is our dedication to the immersive nature of our guests’ experience.  ARBOR + SHEATH of course is a place to gather, revitalize, and to nourish.  Our passion, however, is to create more than a memory.  Our guests leave the mountain with stories.

Located at Devils Backbone Basecamp in Nelson County, Va.   ARBOR + SHEATH is a private indoor-outdoor dining experience offering award-winning craft beer, custom crafted cocktails, and thoughtfully curated food for parties from 2-12 people. 


A reservation at ARBOR + SHEATH includes private access to the Devils Backbone Distillery Lounge with a look straight into the Distillery, an indoor fireplace, and a private bar.  Access also includes the Lounge Patio with its spacious and covered outdoor seating, mountain views and a second fireplace.

Outdoor dining options to come this spring.


ARBOR + SHEATH features seasonal Southern cuisine prepared by Executive Chef Dale Ford and his Basecamp Brewpub team. The ingredients are grown on-site in Devils Backbone’s Hoop Houses and sourced by local vendors whenever possible, creating a true taste of the Virginia Heartland.


Inspired by tradition, but not bound by it, our beverage menu offers a mixture of your favorite Devils Backbone beer, plus rare small batch brews.  The cocktail list features custom crafted cocktails with a focus on spirits from Devils Backbone Distilling Co.  Wine, cider, and other spirits can also be incorporated to suit everyone’s taste and preferences.
