I usually don't really care for micro breweries because I often find their beer bitter, after-tastey, etc. But the beer here was great. I tried them all, and they were all wonderfully balanced and flavorful without being bitter.

Great light beers. Strong Man Ale is really good. Pumpkin Beer was horrible. Staff was fun and friendly.

I visited Starr Hill Brewery after hiking in nearby Shenandoah National Park. The tour was entertaining and informative. The tasting area was even better. For $5, in addition to the tour, you sample 6 of their brews in a logical order, all of which were good. The woman who served us ours provided background information about each brew as we tasted.
Be sure to check that a tour is offered on the day you expect to visit since it appears they may only be given on the weekend. They also sell beer and merchandise directly in the tasting room. It's difficult to leave without purchasing something.
If you're in the Shenandoah NP area, I recommend that you stop in to Starr Hill. Be sure to bring your growler!

The tasting room is right in the middle of all the magic! There are cases of bottles and cans, ready to be distributed to beer lovers. The tasting included 7 beers on tap. My favorite by far is the Love, a wheat beer with bananas and clove. They have a lot of "swag," too -- koozies, tshirts, hats, bottle openers, posters, taps, etc.
