Starr Hill Brewery (Charlottesville, Virginia) recently announced that they will be rolling out their newly created Heavy Rotation Series in March with the release of Daily Grind Peppercorn Farmhouse Ale.
The brewers at Starr Hill Brewery have established the Heavy Rotation Series as a means to create “an ongoing playlist of new beer styles” that utilize fresh, new and unique ingredients. These craft beer offerings will be non-IPA focused to allow Starr Hill brewers and fans to expand their horizons by getting to know a variety of different styles. As an added bonus, each release in the series will be paired with a “handpicked mixtape” that can be accessed through the brewery’s Spotify account. This union of brew and tunes continues and furthers Starr Hill’s dedication to their roots in Virginia’s music scene. The first beer in this series will be next month’s release of Daily Grind Peppercorn Farmhouse Ale, a rustic Saison boasting “traditional aromas of spice and citrus, while crushed peppercorns bring earthy, bright flavors.” The following three offerings will join the series as the year goes on: Sublime Citrus Wit in June, a yet to be determined Helles Bock in September, and a yet to be determined Stout or Dark Ale in December.
“One of the coolest parts about the Heavy Rotation Series is the opportunity to focus our brewing efforts on new and interesting styles that are not IPA-focused,” said Starr Hill’s Brewmaster, Robbie O’Cain. “We have some really interesting new yeast strains, additives and processes to feature in this lineup.”
Daily Grind Peppercorn Farmhouse Ale will be available on draft and in six-packs of 12 oz. bottles beginning in March and will be hanging out through the month of May. You will be able to find this offering at craft beer-friendly establishments in Alabama and throughout the brewery’s distribution footprint.
The good news that Starr Hill Brewery has added the Heavy Rotation Series along with six more new offerings in 2016 is accompanied by a bit of sad news that they will be retiring Dark Starr Stout and Starr Pils in order to open up a bit of room in their brewing schedule. All in all, change is inevitable in our constantly evolving craft beer landscape these days and Starr Hill is sure to impress with all of their new additions. Keep an eye out for Daily Grind Peppercorn Farmhouse Ale next month and for more information that is soon to come about the plethora of new brews on the way from Starr Hill Brewery. Prost!
