CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA – (August 22, 2016) Starr Hill Brewery is heading out on tour this fall with a fresh lineup of beers, featuring two new releases: Last Leaf Maple Brown Ale and Basketcase American Helles.

Last Leaf Syrup Pour

Last Leaf Maple Brown Ale replaces Boxcarr Pumpkin Porter in Starr Hill’s Seasonal series. A classic English Brown Ale, it is brewed with several different malts and real Virginia maple syrup. The maple aroma, with subtle vanilla notes, leads into a rich and smooth body with malty character.

“We always enjoy finding new styles and techniques to showcase local ingredients,” says Starr Hill’s Brewmaster, Robbie O’Cain. “Last year we brewed a similar recipe with our limited-release Debut Series that was very well-received, so we’re really excited to share Last Leaf with more beer lovers looking for a seasonal alternative to the many pumpkin-focused offerings of the fall.”

Starr Hill’s other new release, Basketcase, is an American twist on a clean German Helles. Cascade hops pervade this full-bodied lager with bready malt flavor. As part of the Heavy Rotation Series, this release is paired with a custom playlist on Spotify, showcasing a history of punk rock songs from the past 50 years. Basketcase will also be featured alongside many other rare and award-winning German-style beers at Starr Hill’s Oktoberfest on October 1 at the brewery’s Tap Room.

Last Leaf and Basketcase will join Northern Lights IPA and Whiter Shade White IPA in Starr Hill’s Fall Tour Variety Pack, available now, as well as in six-packs and on draft. To find where Starr Hill beers are available, 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. New beer never sounded so good.

Up next this September is Basketcase American Helles, an American twist on a clean German Helles featuring Cascade hops that pervade this full-bodied lager with bready malt flavor.

With each new release in the Heavy Rotation Series, we’ll be posting playlist of hand-picked tracks. In honor of Basketcase and back to school season, this playlist is a history lesson in punk rock. From proto-punk to the NYC & UK scenes, DC hardcore to Riot grrrl, pop-punk to emo, and everything in between then and now – this mix turns up the volume as you get down with your pairing of this refreshing new beer.

Cheers and enjoy! Don’t forget to check out some of our past Heavy Rotation playlists for Sublime Citrus Wit and Daily Grind Peppercorn Farmhouse Ale.

We LOVE to cook with beer and recently our Central/Western VA Sales Rep, Bryce, shared one of his favorite recipes on a local Roanoke TV station (yeah, he’s famous now). Check out Bryce in action on WXFR’s Good Day Cafe and then try this great summer recipe for Marinated Chicken and Salad Vinaigrette with The Love Wheat Beer.

Ingredients

2 bottles (12 oz each) of The Love Wheat Beer
2 cloves of minced garlic
1 tablespoon of honey
1/2 cup of white balsamic vinegar
1/2 of cup of olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste
2 bone-in chicken breasts
Mixed greens with salad fixings (tomatoes, cucumbers, onions, mandarin oranges, etc.)

Vinaigrette

Put 2 bottles of “The Love” in a pan and bring it to a boil over high heat. Cook for about 10 minutes or until the beer has reduced to about 1 cup. Then remove pan from stove. Once it is cool mix 1/4 of a cup of the beer with the white balsamic vinegar, honey, olive oil, and garlic. Whisk all of those ingredients together, then toss salad with vinaigrette.

Chicken

Season chicken with salt and pepper. Over medium heat cook chicken in pan for about 8 minutes, then flip chicken and cook other side for 8 minutes. Cover chicken with the left over “Love” and serve once chicken has rested for 10 minutes.

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!

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.
