Starr Hill Brewery (Crozet, Virginia) has officially announced the release of its Winter Tour, a cold weather-themed mixed variety pack that contains 12 oz. bottles of Northern Lights IPA, Little Red RooStarr Coffee Cream Stout, 2 Tone Vanilla Porter and Snow Blind Doppelbock.
Recognizing that most of the Southeast has reached that point in the year when temperatures seem to free fall, Starr Hill Brewery has bundled up some comforting warmth in the form of its Winter Tour Variety Pack. Meant to act as “the perfect accompaniment to a cozy fireside session” or a go-to option for the many holiday parties in our futures, this Seasonal mixed pack includes three 12 oz. bottles of each of the following cold weather brews (beer descriptions sourced from the brewery’s website):
- Northern Lights IPA – A newly enhanced version of a classic American-style India Pale Ale, Northern Lights is characterized by its full-flavored bitterness and poignant citrus-floral aroma. A perfect blend of barley and hops makes this a very balanced IPA. ABV – 6.2% IBUs – 55
- Little Red RooStarr Coffee Cream Stout – 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. ABV – 6% IBUs – 19
- 2 Tone Vanilla Porter – Special dark roasted malts unite robust flavors of espresso and bittersweet chocolate with sweet vanilla bean for waves of rich smoothness. 2 Tone’s name is a nod to the British music genre that seamlessly combines brassy ska and punk rock. **Quick Note: the brewery made you a mix tape to chart a musical history of ska.

- Snow Blind Doppelbock – Snow Blind Doppelbock is a full-bodied winter beer with a massive caramel aroma and lightly toasted malt flavor. Sweetness dominates the front of the palate while the beer finishes clean and crisp. ABV – 7.7% IBUs – 13
The Winter Tour is hitting distribution now and will be available through January 2019. You can expect to find this Variety Pack of 12 oz. bottles at select craft beer retailers located in Alabama, Virginia and throughout the rest of Starr Hill’s distribution area. Prost!
