Project Summary: Devil’s Backbone Brewery was expanding their products due to the great increase in the demand for the craft brewery market.  Their new demand requirements are nearly triple their current capabilities, reaching their 10 year goals in less than 5 years.  With Riddleberger’s invite, we met with Devils Backbone and Rolec (brewery package specialist), to size the equipment.  This is the first phase to their expansion with plans to add another equal boiler in the next year.
