Starr Hill Red Roostar is back through the end of the year

Starr Hill’s Little Red Roostar Coffee Stout is back in action again as the weather turns colder.

The Charlottesville, Virginia based brewery combines freshly roasted coffee from Red Rooster into their creamy milk stout resulting in a smooth, roasty beer.

Starr Hill’s Little Red RooStarr Coffee Stout is a full-bodied milk stout brewed with coffee from our friends at Red Rooster Coffee Roasters in Floyd, VA. Malt sweetness, chocolate and caramel notes dominate the flavor, while roasted coffee notes add balance and round out the aroma.

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.

Starr Hill Daily Grind is a farmhouse style ale, brewed with peppercorns.

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.
