Starr Hill Daily Grind kicks off Heavy Rotation Series

Starr Hill Daily Grind

Starr Hill Daily Grind will kick off the brewery’s new Heavy Rotation Series in March.

Enhancing traditional aromas of spice and citrus, crushed peppercorns bring earthy, bright flavors to the rustic saison farmhouse ale.

Starr Hill Daily Grind will be available in 12 ounce bottles and draft from March through May, 2016.

Style: Farmhouse Ale (w/ Peppercorns)
Availability: 12oz Bottles, Draft. March-May.
