Headed on down to the Devils Backbone from a house we were staying at the Wintergreen resort area. There is a lot of parking - probably far more parking than the actual brewpub could ever support, lots of space. Place was fairly crowded but we were able to sit in a nice fireplace and space heater heated covered outdoor area. Servers were very chipper, and easy to talk with.
Lots of beers available from them, so it was good to be able to try many of their brewpub only brews. Food came out pretty promptly. Burger was HUGE, so it made up for the slightly over-salted (at least for me) fries that came with them.
Went there a second time two days later and the place was busy, even for roughly 4:00pm, but still got seated immediately in the covered patio. Service was quick. One addendum to this that other reviewers have noted - no one in the group of 8 (both with Verizon and AT&T) had cell signals. Itís dead. There isnít any free wi-fi available, something that at least Wild Wolf provided just down the street. Not a deal breaker, but virtually impossible to check-in or write reviews on the fly when there.

Nice looking place. Hunting lodge feel. The service was fine, friendly and seemed knowledgeable. We didnít eat, but the food menu looked interesting, though a little pricey. Solid brewpub.

Beautiful building - post & beam construction and high ceiling gives it a mountain lodge feel, which I guess it is. Staff very friendly and knowledgable. Service was kinda slow - I thought the meal would arrive before my 1st beer. My wife tried the sampler and the beers were warm (this is a general problem with beer samplers). No problem with the food - pretty good pub fare. Overall nice place that I hope to return to.

Stopped in for lunch on a Sunday. Itís a BIG place. Really goes for the lodge theme (compete with tons of taxidermied animals on the walls.) Sat at the bar which is kind of hidden and a little hard to get to. They run a full restaurant on top of the beer but the food is really pretty expensive. A good selection beers, the regulars and some specialties. For the most part nothing aside from solidly done standards. Lagers, ales, wheats in multiples. But they did have a black beliner weiss which was awesome! Service was a bit slow and I watched as a few tables seemed to get ignored after getting their waters. But everyone was friendly and there was a good, diverse crowd. Nothing Iím dying to go back for unless Iím in the area already.

It started off well. Beautiful ski chalet type building, gorgeous scenery, very good hefe but it went downhill quickly mainly to a lack of air conditioning. Itís already the hottest summer in existence but by the time we left the thermostat was at 85 degrees. By the ends I just wanted to get the hell out of there which kind affects oneís ability to rate a place. That being said I also wasnít feeling the gas station chic the bartenders were forced to wear. Why dress your employees in something that no one but helroin addled hipsters could look good in? Also no cell service in the area So plan accordingly.

Ski chalet; reclaimed materials, large stuffed animals. No AC so in 90+ heat, it was sweltering in there. The bathrooms are about 15 degrees cooler, so you kind of wanted to take your beer to the bathroom and just stay there. Folks were crowding the bar which can be awkward. There is NO cell service in the area, so make note of RB entries before arriving. The wait staff was friendly despite the tragic 1950ís gas station attendant shirts that donít fit the rustic ski chalet theme.

Good, but not wonderful food, good and a couple of very good brews, al lserved in a comfortable setting. The surrounding scenery is enough to make a trip there worth the effort, even if you donít like beer.

Lodge theme- looked clean and well-kept. Kind of fun checking out the dead animals on the wall. Live music. Service was good, friendly and efficient. Decent selection of beer- we did a sampler. None of them rate as my favorite beer ever, but enjoyed our time nonetheless. Food was decent and tasty- not perfect but good. Prices average. Overall an enjoyable visit and a good kick-off to a fun vacation.

Stopped in this place with yourefragile on our way from DC down to Winstom-Salem for the Barrel-Aged Sexual Chocolate release. Kind of out in the middle of nowhere, though the area is beautiful. Also impressive that there are three breweries in close proximity to one another here.
First off, the parking lot is massive and consists of a gravel circle with more than enough room. Ahead is a nice amphitheater, which I assume is used for concerts. Once we got inside, there was a band playing off to the left. Nothing too loud, and fairly enjoyable. Nice hunting lodge theme throughout the place, though quite tastefully done. The brewing equipment is viewable behind the bar, where we sat down.
Good service from the start. The place was quite busy, but the bartender did a good job coming back to us. As would be expected, plenty of German-style lagers on the menu. No surprise, as Jason excels here. Food menu was pretty diverse. There were approximately 10 beers on tap, with 4 regulars and then 6 or so new beers.
The food was pretty good and at a reasonable price. I also loved the fact that they had multiple types of branded glassware -- pints, tulips, and weizen glasses.
Very cool vibe at this place. I will definitely return the next time Iím headed down that way.

Visited here when staying with friends on a relaxing trip. Tried several of the local favorites and was quite pleased. We sat on the patio area and the smell of garbage was swirling the air. This didnít bother me as much a some. The beer was pretty good, the food was average or slightly above and the bar inside was quite nice for such a rural nook of the eastern seaboard. All in all, I say the place was nice enough to revisit. Especially since, its the only damn thing in Roseland that resembles a decent beer joint.
