Starr HIll to expand in Crozet

If you missed this story in yesterday’s DP, take a look – Starr Hill Brewery seeks to expand its Crozet offerings besides slightly cheaper six-packs at the Great Valu.

The brewery, located in a 15,000-square-foot warehouse that was once home to ConAgra Frozen Foods, is seeking a permit from the state Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control to begin allowing tours.

If approved, beer enthusiasts will be able to watch Starr Hill’s brewing process starting in mid-summer or early fall.

“We hope to incorporate ourselves into the wine-tasting traffic that comes through here all the time,” Thompson said.

As part of its upcoming tours, the company is refurbishing a 3,000-square-foot rooftop deck and outdoor walkway where visitors can sip a beer and listen to bands perform.

They join Blue Mountain Brewery in their desire to offer tasting of quality beer.

Starr Hill does have a nifty “Starr Hill sightings” photo blog.
