Not One, But Two Starr Hill Events Here In Roanoke Tomorrow!

Starr Hill BrewingWhile Starr Hill continues to expand production and distribution into new markets along the East Coast, the nearby Crozet based brewery is certainly not forgetting its roots.  Following up events centered around the release of its coffee cream stout Red Roostarr back in March, Starr Hill continues to show plenty of Virginia love right here in Roanoke, as not one, but two different events will be held in the Star City showcasing Starr Hill beers tomorrow night.  The first of which is occurring at Jack Brown’s Burger and Beer Joint (5pm), followed closely by a second at Corned Beef & Company at 8pm.  The word is that founder and brewmaster Mark Thompson will be on hand at both events. 

Rumor also has itStarr Hill Smoke Out that a possible beer at one or both events will be the uncommonly found “Smoke Out”, Starr Hill’s Rauch Beer (a German style lager using smoked malt).  Also likely available will be their Northern Lights IPA, as well as their recently introduced seasonal pale ale “Grateful”, which I’ve been singing the praises of for a couple months now.  Grateful is about as tasty a pale as I’ve come across, featuring the same kind of citrus centered flavor that so many craft beer fans love in their IPAs, without the higher abv% and that style’s more bitter taste.  Also likely will be the Red Roostarr stout, which apparently, and appropriately, will be well featured at this year’s upcoming Floydfest music festival, being held a little over a week and a half away.  Of course, the coffee used in the Red Roostarr stout comes from none other than Red Rooster Coffee Roasters, based in Floyd Va.

Come out and support Virginia craft beer at two Starr Hill events tomorrow night!
