Two local favorites to perform at the Starr Hill 11th anniversary celebration!

Virginia Eagle Distributing Company (VED) The local beverage wholesaler, with locations in Verona, Winchester, and Charlottesville, is proud to announce that Virginia’s very own microbrewery, Starr Hill, is celebrating their 11th anniversary of supplying “The Gift of Great Beer” to loyal customers throughout the state, as well as the entire East Coast.

To celebrate the occasion, Starr Hill has decided to host a private “invitation only” event to be held at The Jefferson Theater in Charlottesville on Nov. 11th. The night will feature a walk down memory lane, as guests will be treated to a nostalgic photo gallery, featuring the climb to prominence of the local brand.  Guest will also enjoy sampling of present-day Starr Hill brews and a selection of past favorites brought out of retirement for this special night, as well as a gift bag filled with commemorative apparel, a limited-edition Anniversary Ale produced especially for the lucky few guests in attendance, and a chance to win the “Starr Hill Experience.”  The final piece of the puzzle is musical entertainment, and Starr Hill’s selections will not disappoint.

Opening up the festivities will be William Walter & Tucker Rogers playing an acoustic set.  Scheduled to begin around 7:30pm, they will bring a special selection of music that is best described as well-written rock and roll mixed with improvised solos, handcrafted in a jam style.

Headlining the evening will be one of Charlottesville’s favorite bands, Love Canon.  What do you get when you cross conservatory-trained musicians with raucous bluegrass and the mega-hits of the 80s? LOVE CANON. Think Rocky IV, Cyndi Lauper, Whitesnake and Dire Straits played with banjo, mandolin and high lonesome vocals.

“Our team at Starr Hill put a lot of time and thought into which musicians we should invite to participate in this event.  Ultimately, it was a unanimous decision to keep the choices local and select a band with a strong Charlottesville base and following,” stated Mark Thompson, Founder and Brewmaster. “When we found out that both William Walter and Love Canon were available, we wasted no time signing them.  These are two of our favorite bands and their styles match this event perfectly.  We couldn’t be happier with the selection.”
