Starr Hill Brewery (Crozet, Virginia) announced this week that their Fall Tour Variety Pack has officially hit shelves.
Autumn is fast approaching and Starr Hill Brewery is doing its part to welcome the season with the release of the Fall Tour Variety Pack. Not only does this mixed 12-pack contain the long-standing brewery standouts of Northern Lights India Pale Ale and Whiter Shade White India Pale Ale, but it is also rocking the following two new releases:
- Basketcase American Helles Lager – This “American twist on a clean German Helles” Lager comes to us by way of the brewery’s Heavy Rotation Series, a series that provides a fresh look at non-IPA styles by utilizing “really interesting new yeast strains, additives and processes.” This offering comes together as a 5.4% ABV, full-bodied lager boasting bready malts and a punch of Cascade hops. In addition to the Fall Tour Variety Pack, Basketcase is also available now in 6-packs of 12 oz. bottles and on draft. Like all Heavy Rotation offerings, you can pair Basketcase “with a custom playlist on Spotify, showcasing a history of punk rock songs from the past 50 years” (click here to give it a listen).
- Last Leaf Maple Brown Ale – Stepping in as the replacement for Boxcarr Pumpkin Porter, Last Leaf is Starr Hill Brewery’s latest Seasonal brew. This English-style Brown Ale is brewed with four malts (2-Row, Crystal, Munich & Golden Oats), English East Kent Golding hops, and Virginia maple syrup. This dose of syrupy goodness lends Last Leaf rich maple aromas and vanilla notes that lead “into a rich and smooth body with malty character.” At 6.1% ABV, this brew has both the drinkability and comforting warmth you seek out when the temperatures begin to dip. Like Basketcase American Helles, Last Leaf Maple Brown Ale is also available now in 6-packs of 12 oz. bottles and on draft.
“We always enjoy finding new styles and techniques to showcase local ingredients,” says Starr Hill’s Brewmaster, Robbie O’Cain. “Last year we brewed a similar recipe with our limited-release Debut Series that was very well-received, so we’re really excited to share Last Leaf with more beer lovers looking for a seasonal alternative to the many pumpkin-focused offerings of the fall.”
The Fall Tour Variety Pack is a mixed 12-pack that contains three bottles of each offering mentioned above. Look for this mixed pack in Alabama and throughout Starr Hill Brewery’s distribution area now to get a jump on fall with these tasty brews. Prost!
