Brewer Jason Oliver sent out this email today:
After six and a half years with Gordon Biersch Brewery Restaurant in Washington, Friday the 27th will be my last day at GB. I am moving to beautiful Nelson County Virginia and will be involved in the start-up of a new brew pub called Devil's Backbone Brewing Company which will sit in the shadow of the Blue Ridge mountains just down the road from Wintergreen ski resort.
When down in central Virginia, please make it a point to stop by. We plan to be open this fall, around October November.
