The idea for Striped Bass Pale Ale was fittingly spawned on an island in the middle of the Chesapeake Bay while fishing for stripers in near gale force winds. Steve Crandall, founder of Devils Backbone Brewing Company (DBBC) and a fully committed outdoorsman, wanted to create a great beer that would satisfy your thirst but also help protect your local waters.

Devils Backbone Brewing Company helps support the conservation programs of the Chesapeake Bay Foundation.
