Starr Hill opening Roanoke location in the fall
Crozet-based Starr Hill Brewery is opening a second location in Roanoke in the fall.
The company says the brewery will showcase new beers and live music. It will be housed within a historic building on 6 Old Whitmore Ave. in The Bridges neighborhood.
“With flagship brands taking precedence at our production facility in Crozet, this pilot system presents us with the opportunity to really show off our brewing talents and new ideas to fans in Roanoke and beyond,” Robbie O’Cain, Star Hill’s brewmaster, said in a statement.
The Roanoke brewery will house a custom five-barrel brewing system, allowing it to produce upwards of 50 limited release batches of beer each year.
Founded in Charlottesville in 1999, Starr Hill is the largest independent brewery in Virginia. It distributes throughout the mid-Atlantic and Southeastern United States.
