CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA - (August 22, 2016) Starr Hill Brewery is heading out on tour this fall with a fresh lineup of beers, featuring two new releases: Last Leaf Maple Brown Ale and Basketcase American Helles.

Last Leaf Maple Brown Ale replaces Boxcarr Pumpkin Porter in Starr Hill’s Seasonal series. A classic English Brown Ale, it is brewed with several different malts and real Virginia maple syrup. The maple aroma, with subtle vanilla notes, leads into a rich and smooth body with malty character.

“We always enjoy finding new styles & 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.”

Starr Hill’s other new release, Basketcase, is an American twist on a clean German Helles. Cascade hops pervade this full-bodied lager with bready malt flavor. As part of the Heavy Rotation Series, this release is paired with a custom playlist on Spotify, showcasing a history of punk rock songs from the past 50 years. Basketcase will also be featured alongside many other rare and award-winning German-style beers at Starr Hill’s Oktoberfest on October 1 at the brewery’s Tap Room.

Last Leaf and Basketcase will join Northern Lights IPA and Whiter Shade White IPA in Starr Hill’s Fall Tour Variety Pack, available now, as well as in six-packs and on draft. To find where Starr Hill beers are available, visit
