The areas on the main floor include the pub, brew house, bottling area, fermentation and conditioning rooms, and the warehouse. The pub, brew house and bottling areas are open to the public. There is a mezzanine level on which our business office, lab, and grain mill are located. The mezzanine level also contains a customer seating area. The pub is located in the front of the brewery. There is seating for 7 at the bar, 22 at the tables on the main floor and 20 at tables on the mezzanine. The brewery, BOP (the acronym for brew-on-premises), and pub are open the same hours, so beer and food is always available during our open hours and while you are brewing.

In the mid-90’s, Master Brewer Mark Thompson returned to his native Virginia from Portland, OR, having learned two things: First, that the craft of artisanal brewing was one part science and one part art; and second, that making delicious beer was a lot cooler than anything he had ever done as a biology student. After several years of apprenticing with other master brewers, Mark was ready to begin crafting beer using his own recipes.

He found the perfect spot in Charlottesville, VA – a historic storefront on Main Street that was once home to the state of Virginia’s first craft brewing operation. In September 1999, Mark re-opened the doors and introduced the “Starr Hill” Brewery. Named after the local neighborhood, the brewery shared its historic building with the legendary Starr Hill Music Hall, and it was there that Mark's delicious craft beers became a favorite to visiting beer lovers, musicians, and music fans from around the world. Fourteen prestigious awards later, Mark’s brews continue to be a hit at beer and music festivals nationwide.
