If Virginia is for Craft Beer Lovers, then the Brew Ridge Trail is the cradle for this craft civilization. Since 1999, we’ve been a proud pioneer of the state’s craft beer scene, honored and humbled to play a key role in its growth and impact.

VA Craft Beer Month is a celebration of the passion, creativity and local values that make the craft beer scene in the Commonwealth so unique and exciting. We’re hosting several events throughout the month of August at the Crozet Tap Room with a unique combination of beer, music and community outreach.

Also, stay tuned for updates on our Pilot Brewery & Side Stage location in Roanoke, coming soon!

FEATURED EVENTS

Cheers for Charity: Women’s Initiative

Updates from #StarrCity

Things are chugging along at our highly anticipated Starr Hill Roanoke Pilot Brewery & Side Stage. “We’re in the very early stages of the build out process,” reports Allie Hochman, Manager of Retail Operations. “We’ve just cut into the concrete floors to put in the bar drainage and brewing system.”

The Roanoke brewery will feature a 5-barrel brewing system, just ordered from Deutsche Beverage. This system will support a new brew every week that will be featured exclusively at the Pilot Brewery in Roanoke. Like at neighboring Roanoke breweries, customers will be able to reach out and touch the brite tanks.

“It’s important for customers to see and get to know our process. We’re excited to share the journey every new beer goes through and how we do things — our methods, where we get our inspirations…”

Once the drainage system is set, other equipment will be embedded into the concrete floors that will support the brewhouse, such as the heating system and the chiller. Next on the build list is the walk-in keg cooler, and then finally the construction of the bar.

Asked about the vision for the Pilot Brewery & Side Stage, Hochman shared that the goal was to translate the look and feel of our current Tap Room in Crozet, with a twist.

“The design elements will have an industrial vibe: reclaimed wood and metal with a concrete bar, just like at our original brewery, but will also incorporate touches that nod at Roanoke’s rail-town feel.”

For those who have had a beer in our Crozet Tap Room, look out for design elements that are unique to the Roanoke Tap Room.

CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA – (May 31, 2017) Starr Hill Brewery has remastered their Grateful Pale Ale with an enhanced recipe, available just in time for the summer festival season. The update to one of Starr Hill’s flagship brands showcases a fruitier hop aroma, more citrus hop flavor and a smoother, fuller body.

“One of our goals was to make Grateful more of an American Pale Ale, moving away from the Session IPA characteristics that focused more on hop side of the beer,” says Robbie O’Cain, Brewmaster at Starr Hill Brewery. “This new recipe really brings everything into balance with more malt body to stand up to that large hop profile.”

To remaster Grateful Pale Ale, Carafoam and Torrefied wheat were added to the malt bill for a fuller mouthfeel. A revamped hop bill features Cascade, Mosaic, Centennial and Falconer’s Flight in the kettle and dry-hop, replacing Chinook, Topaz and Columbus.

The new hop varieties, in particular Mosaic and Centennial, bring out more fruit and citrus notes in the beer. The enhanced aroma and flavor are due in large part to the hop bursting technique utilized in other recent pale ale releases from Starr Hill, most notably Northern Lights IPA and Reviver Red IPA.

“Similar to when we refreshed the recipe for Northern Lights IPA, we didn’t want to throw out the soul of Grateful,” says O’Cain. “For Grateful fans out there, this is an enhanced, balanced version of this beer that’s perfect for the warm summer months ahead.”

Remastered Grateful Pale Ale is now available on draft, in 6-pack bottles, and cans throughout Starr Hill’s distribution area. To find where Grateful Pale Ale and other Starr Hill beers are in your area, visit www.StarrHill.com/Beer-Finder.

A great playlist is all about what’s new and what’s next. That’s why we created our Heavy Rotation Series: to keep fresh styles of beer coming your way.

Up next: Sublime Citrus Wit, with citrus, tangy wheat and spice melding in a classic Belgian-style brew, brightened by real lemon and lime zest in its refreshing finish. An instant classic — played on repeat all summer last year — Sublime is the first release to return to the Heavy Rotation Series for a replay!

Learn more about how Sublime is brewed from Lead Brewer, Trey McCoy, in our First Taste Series video:

With each new release in the Heavy Rotation Series, we share a playlist of hand-picked tracks to share some of our favorite new songs and some other deep cuts we’re currently jamming out to. This mix is a sunny playlist featuring a double six-pack of songs that combines flavors of ska, funk, R&B, rock and pop – combined to pair perfectly with a bottle of Sublime or with a rapturous, oceanside drive (windows way down).

Cheers and enjoy!

Introducing our 12th Release in our Debut Series…

Denali Double

A decent-sized sip, a swallow, and a sigh: the universally-known and evergreen salute of a good beer tasted. There’s no better endorsement.

It doesn’t hurt to be lauded by the production team as the best new beer brewed.
“The base IPA is perfect, in my opinion.” Brewmaster Robbie O’Cain exults the straightforward malt bill that provides the brew’s fantastically smooth body.
These classic malts (Pilsner, Vienna, and Carafoam) lean back and let the Denali hops really shine.

A new variety sold by Hopsteiner, Denali has characteristically high oil content — making late kettle additions a cinch. The more traditional Citra, Galaxy, and Falconer’s Flight hops support the distinct and delicate Pacific Northwest hop that lends its name. Hosting huge notes of strawberry, pineapple, and a hint of sweet wild onion, a pint of this debut exudes some striking aromas.

Debut #12 Denali Double is on tap in the Starr Hill Brewery Tap Room. Try it at the JamBEERee Pre-Party featuring an acoustic set by Lord Nelson, or at
IPA JamBEERee!
