Last year there was a collaborative effort between four Virginia breweries which created Brew Ridge Trail Black IPA. The limited batch beer was available at the participating breweries and some bars in the Charlottesville area. Well, they're at it again! Jacque Landry of South Street Brewery, Matt Nucci of Blue Mountain Brewery, Mark Thompson from Starr Hill, Aaron Reilly and Jason Oliver from Devils Backbone were joined this year by newcomer Danny Wolf, of Wild Wolf Brewing Company.
Last year the group brewed at Star Hill Brewery. The same Black IPA recipe was used this year, however the group worked their magic at Devils Backbone Brewing Company. Since the brewhouse at Devils Backbone is smaller than that at Starr Hill, there will be less of the beer produced this year. Last year's batch sold out in about a week, so fans will have to be on the ball when this second, smaller batch is ready in about a month.
