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. New beer never sounded so good.

Up next this June is Sublime Citrus Wit, with citrus, tangy wheat and spice melding in a classic Belgian-style brew while real lemon and lime zest brightens its refreshing finish. 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’ll be posting 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, folk, R&B, rock and pop – all mixed together to pair perfectly with a bottle of Sublime or your drink of choice the summer season.

(Note: The Bobby Midnight Band song from Rockfish in the video is not available on the playlist as it is yet-to-be released!)

Cheers and enjoy!

In honor of Dave Matthews Band’s 25th Anniversary and hometown show on May 7th in Charlottesville, we brewed Warehouse Pils to celebrate many more years of amazing music from this legendary local group. All net proceeds from the beer will benefit The Bama Works Fund of Dave Matthews Band, a Charlottesville Area Community Foundation.

Screen Shot 2016-05-03 at 8.29.03 AM

This German Pilsner is dry-hopped with German hops and golden in color, with a mildly floral hop flavor and clean malt finish. It’s perfect for those warm spring and summer days, as well as enjoying with your favorite DMB song!

Warehouse Pils is a limited release available on draft only in Virginia. You can find it on tap in the Starr Hill Brewery Tap Room starting Wednesday, May 4th, followed by the DMB 25 Pop-Up Retrospective on May 6th & 7th, the anniversary show at John Paul Jones Arena on May 7th, as well as the Pre-Party and After Party shows at The Jefferson Theater. Warehouse Pils will then be available on tap at select locations in Virginia in Mid-May for a limited time.

CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA – (March 23, 2016) Starr Hill Brewery is excited to announce the release of Four Kings IPA Pack, a very limited 12-pack featuring different variants of King of Hop Imperial IPA including Grapefruit King of Hop, Habanero King of Hop, and Lemon-Lime King of Hop alongside the original.

Four Kings IPA Pack will be released on March 24 in the Starr Hill Brewery & Tap Room before being shipped to retail April 1 on draft and in package at exclusive locations across Starr Hill’s distribution footprint.

“The hop bill in King of Hop pairs extremely well with a range of flavors, so our brewing team had a lot of fun experimenting with test batches past year,” said Starr Hill Brewmaster, Robbie O’Cain. “With Citra providing a strong citrus characteristic to the base of this beer, the fruit and spice variants bring a new level of complexity for King of Hop.”

First released in 2014 as part of the All Access Series, King of Hop Imperial IPA won the Gold Medal for the India Pale Ale Category at the Virginia Craft Brewers Festival the same year. The Four Kings and All Access release of King of Hop will also showcase new packaging artwork as part of Starr Hill’s brand refresh that rolled out in Summer 2015.

In a Starr Hill Brewery first, we partied with friends from around Charlottesville and beyond for an incredible St. Paddy’s event at the Tap Room – and man, what a great time!

The brewery transformed into an Irish pub, complete with cozy tables, belly bars and mugs brimming with some special release stouts, including our collaboration with O’Hara’s Irish Beers, Blackthorn Irish Export Stout, plus twists on favorites like Not-So-Irish Coffee Cream Stout and Peppermint Paddy’s Chocolate Stout, and finally, Dark Starr Dry Irish Stout‘s last hurrah.

In an epic St. Piggy’s Throwdown, a trio of local chefs competed for top Irish dish using locally sourced pork products from The Rock Barn, including Hamiltons’ at First & Main‘s Chef Curtis Shaver with a Corned Beef Banger and Kardinal Beer Hall‘s Chef Thomas Leroy with an Irish Banger. Congratulations to Chef Tommy Lasley of Ivy Provisions for winning with their delicious Corned Bone-In Pig Brisket and Turnip Colcannon!

The Albemarle Pipe and Drums, UVA Irish Dance Club, and Ken & Mike Farmer serenaded us with authentic Irish tunes and drinking songs, while Jon Spear Band brought some searing, funky blues tunes. Here’s our Spotify playlist of traditional and newer Irish music for you to keep the party going:

A big thanks to the restaurants, bands and everyone else for coming out! Here’s some photos below to remember a great day of crafting great times. We can’t wait until the next event–IPA JAMBEEREE!

CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA – (March 10, 2016) Starr Hill Brewery proudly presents their IPA JAMBEEREE, a one-of-a-kind new festival that celebrates crafting great times, India Pale Ales and live music in Virginia. The one-day event will be held on Saturday, June 25 at the Hangar Park, across the street from the Starr Hill Brewery & Tap Room at 5931 Three Notch’d Road in Crozet, Virginia. The Hangar Park is a unique event space combining the industrial grit of the area with scenic views of the Blue Ridge Mountains.

Craft beer fans will sample over 40 different IPAs from more than a dozen Virginia breweries, featuring the release of numerous rare and exclusive offerings from Starr Hill, as well as partake in educational sessions and interactive exhibits with local hop growers. A show-stopping lineup of live music performances round out the ultimate Starr Hill experience alongside local food trucks, fun recreational games, and proceeds to benefit a local non-profit organization.

“The brewing scene in Virginia is one of the most dynamic in the country, and we are proud to showcase some of the best beers in the state,” said Robbie O’Cain, Starr Hill’s Brewmaster. “For our first festival, we can’t wait to share some great beer and live music with good friends.”

Details on participating breweries, performers and tickets will be revealed later this month on JAMBEEREE.com. Follow updates via Starr Hill Brewery’s social media accounts at Facebook.com/StarrHillBrewery, Twitter @StarrHill, and Instagram @StarrHillBrewery.
