Starr Hill Brewery (Charlottesville, Virginia) has officially announced that Say It Ain’t Sour will launch in April as the brewery’s newest Limited Release mixed 12-pack.
Here to introduce fans to Starr Hill’s newly-released Sour Series of offerings “inspired by the sweet songs that celebrate women with attitude”, the Say It Ain’t Sour Variety Pack contains the following four brews that are “just as juicy with fruit punch flavors as they are tart and funky” (descriptions sourced directly from the brewery’s website):
Lizzy | Lime Gose – A brew boasting citric acidity from the juice and peel of limes. Crisp and thirst-quenching, but with mild saltiness, Lizzy will make you dizzy in her riptide and leave you wanting another sip. ABV – 4.7% **Also available in 6-packs of 12 oz. bottles & on draft**
Lola | Guava Gose – A bubbly, light wheat beer, perfect for dancing all night under electric candlelight. A mix of flowery Guava and modest salinity in a refreshment that looks like champagne and talks like a beer. ABV – 4.7% **Also available on draft**
Mariah | Passion Fruit Gose – Funky, tart, and tropically sweet from passionfruit puree. Silky with plenty of high notes. ABV – 4.7% **Also available in 6-packs of 12 oz. bottles & on draft**
Roxanne | Raspberry American Sour – An extremely low-hopped, kettle-soured wheat ale. Sweet and tart with raspberry puree and carbonation turned up, this is an effervescent and refreshing brew. ABV – 4.7% **Also available in 6-packs of 12 oz. bottles & on draft**
The Say It Ain’t Sour Variety Pack officially released on April 1 and will hang around as long as supplies last. You can expect to find this Limited Release mixed 12-pack of 12 oz. bottles at craft beer-friendly retailers located in Alabama, Virginia and throughout the rest of Starr Hill’s distribution footprint. Prost!
Eager to jump into their 20th year of craft brewing,Starr Hill Brewery (Charlottesville, Virginia) sent out a 2019 Product Calendar this week that outlines all the surprises they have planned for their fans in the coming year.
Just as we do with all posts on brewery calendars, we have published Starr Hill’s full 2019 Product Calendar below for you to fully absorb on your own. With that said, there are quite a few details that we feel we should pass along before we turn you over to that document. Brevity is our goal, so let’s knock it out:
Starr Hill will establish a rotating Sour Series in 2019. This series will feature the following kettle-soured brews: Raspberry American Sour (April), Lime Gose (July), and Passion Fruit Gose (October). A “bubbly” Guava Gose will also appear later in the winter. All Sour Series offerings will be available on draft, in rotating seasonal 6-packs of 12 oz. bottles, and in the “Say It Ain’t Sour” 12-pack of 12 oz. bottles that will also debut in April.
Hoppy Blonde Ale will launch in May as the brewery’s new Summer Seasonal, replacing The Hook Grapefruit Session IPA. This easy-drinking Blonde Ale boasts an “emphatic hop aroma and flavor (and never-before-used hops).” A new, yet to be named Winter Seasonal will also turn up in November.
The All Access Series returns in 2019 with the following lineup of limited release brews: Kelis Milkshake IPA (January), New England IPA (April), Deep Fuzz Double IPA (July), and Little Red Roostarr Coffee Cream Stout (October). All Access brews will have availability on draft and in 16 oz. cans in 2019.
The “Hopped As Hell” Variety 12-pack of 12 oz. bottles will surface in August to supply hopheads with the following four lupulin-laced brews: Shade, a hopped ale with the shadow of a Belgian Wit; Swim, a hazy, juicy wave of refreshment; AC, a breeze of an Amarillo Citra IPA; and Mountain Air, a West-Coast style, pinnacle of an imperial IPA.
To make room for the upcoming additions to the Starr Hill lineup, two year-round brands will be phased out in January 2019: Double Platinum Imperial IPA and Jomo Vienna Lager. These beers, beloved as they are by retail visitors, will still appear on rotation at Starr Hill’s Crozet and Roanoke tap rooms.
Okey dokey . . . that should wrap up everything that we wanted to cover, but there are still plenty of juicy little tidbits for you to find on the calendar below. Give it a good look and get ready to celebrate two decades craft brewing with Starr Hill Brewery in 2019. Prost!
