#673 Devils Backbone’s Vienna Lager

Before Blizzardageddon 2016 hit Vienna, Ryan and I went to Whole Foods Market (Vienna, Virginia, USA) to stock up on food and beer for during the blizzard. One of those beers, which I tried last night (1/30/2016), was Devils Backbone’s Vienna Lager, a 5.2% alcohol by volume (ABV) Vienna Style Lager from the Devils Backbone Brewing Company (Roseland, Virginia, USA). According to Devils Backbone’s website, their Vienna Lager was brewed using Vienna, Pilsner, Dark Munich, and Caramel malts; and Norther Brewer and Saaz hops.


Devils Backbone’s Vienna Lager exhibits 18 IBUs (International Bitterness Units) and an amber color. This beer is available year-round in kegs, 6-packs, and 12-packs. This beer has won many awards over the years including Gold at the 2015 Great American Beer Festival under the Vienna-Style Lager category. Below is the commercial description of Devils Backbone’s Vienna Lager:

“With its amber chestnut colored good looks and smooth malty finish, Vienna Lager was an obvious choice to put into bottles. It blends color and flavor without heaviness or bitterness. Just as Vienna Lagers historically inspired Munich’s Oktoberfest beers to evolve, this amber lager has evolved since we opened in 2008 into the award winning beer it is today. Experience the taste and tradition. Mild, Toasted, Caramel. Basecamp Favorites represent our core brewing principles: balance, approachability and trueness to style.” – Devils Backbone Brewing Company
