Starr Hill Brewery was founded in 1999 in the town of Charlottesville, Virginia, by Mark Thompson and Kristin Dolan. The brewery takes its name from the neighborhood where it was originally located. In 2005, the brewery moved to nearby Crozet, Virginia.[1]

Starr Hill's beers can be found throughout the mid-Atlantic and southeast United States. The brewery has won several awards for its beer, in particular the Dark Starr Stout, which is the most decorated Dry Irish stout in the American craft brewing scene.[2]

In 2007, Starr Hill signed a distribution deal with Anheuser Busch[3] but was released from this agreement in 2011.

Along with South Street Brewery, Blue Mountain Brewery, Wild Wolf Brewing Company and Devils Backbone Brewing Company, Starr Hill forms the Brew Ridge Trail.[4]
