Every adventure begins with the question, “Where are we going?”

When you backpack into the hills, don’t you look to see where your destination is? We hope so! And, it’s highly likely, that a compass will get you to where ever your next adventure awaits.

One might say the spark for the idea behind the brewery happened in 1992 with a visit to Cortina, Italy. Founders, Steve and Heidi Crandall were on a ski trip and were introduced to a German beer called Weihenstephan. This first real “craft” beer experience started a trend in the Crandall household, planting the seed that slowly grew into an idea, and then bloomed to become Devils Backbone Brewing Company.
