ROANOKE, Va. - Starr Hill Brewery, which opens this week, gave WSLS 10 an exclusive sneak peak inside its facility where construction is down to the home stretch.

The brewery, located next to Starbucks near Jefferson Street, is the oldest craft brewery in Virginia.

Star Hill management says they're excited to have this smaller brewing system where there will be plenty of research and development to make many small batches of beers with special ingredients.

"It's down to the wire, but we are excited that we're going to make it! We have cool things going on here, we're going to have live music, and a bunch of different Starr Hill beers on tap, especially ones people in the area haven't had a chance to try yet,” said Allie Hichman, retail operations manager at Starr Hill Brewery.

If all goes as planned, Star Hill plans to open its doors to the public at noon on Saturday.
