At Devils Backbone, the health and safety of our customers, employees, and local community we call home is our top priority. We are excited to share that we will reopen Basecamp Brewpub & Meadows for outdoor seating on Friday, May 15 while following all guidelines set forth by Gov. Northam. To help us give you the best dining and beer drinking experience at our pub, we will open with limited outdoor seating ONLY and by reservation only. Basecamp Brewpub & Meadows will continue to offer Curbside Pickup and Regional Delivery. We will be requiring all guests to wear face coverings whenever not seated at their reserved table. Please visit our Reservations Page to see new safety precautions, guest requirements, and information on how to make your reservations before heading our way.
In accordance with Governor Northam’s Executive Order for Virginians to stay at home and practice social distancing in an effort to help slow the spread of COVID-19, all Devils Backbone weekly events will be cancelled temporarily. Stay tuned for Basecamp festival updates. We will continue to monitor the situation closely and look forward to hosting events in Nelson County again, as soon as we can do it safely.
PRETTY MUCH THE MUSIC, FOOD, CAMPING, & BEER WONDERLAND
of Nelson County.
Basecamp Brewpub & Meadows is our pilot brewery nestled at the base of the Blue Ridge Mountains where we craft our beer recipes on a traditional German designed 10 Hectoliter brewing system.
We’ll pour you a pint from one of the 48 taps on property served up alongside a delicious oak wood-fired dishes. Fast-casual fare is available outside at The Oak Grill along with beer and wine at The Outdoor Bar. Inside The Shanty, we pour rare Devils Backbone beers, and a wide selection of fine spirits with a focus on whiskey and cigars. And if you’re a morning person, made-to-order breakfast and craft specialty coffees are available from The Summit. Feel free to bring your dogs over, we don’t mind. Actually, we encourage it. Just remember to keep ‘em leashed and they’re not allowed in buildings or patios where food is served.
Adjacent to Basecamp you’ll find Devils Backbone Distilling Co. where we make meticulously crafted spirits. Enjoy a custom cocktail featuring recipes using our spirits in the Distillery Lounge. You can also grab a bottle to-go in the Devils Backbone Shop just one door down where you can check out all our DB gear.
Throughout the year we host bike races, trail runs, festivals, and lots of live music. We’ve got plenty of room for day trippers or overnighters. Devils Backbone Camp has 71 campsites including full hookup RV sites, dry RV sites, and primitive tent camping. Camping not your thing? We have 2 luxury homes on property available for your renting pleasure. Sleeping within walking distance to the Devils Backbone Basecamp Brewpub & Meadows — now that’s what we call a beer dream come true!
