LCCB is proud to have Mo DeBree come out to the farm and perform. Mo DeBree originated with Kevin and Kelli Moss in the Spring of 1998. Their idea was to draw together a crew of seasoned musicians acclaimed for their sound quality, not their volume level, to play standards, deep in the mix and original arrangements of blues and R&B music. Once the players were assembled, rehearsals began in May of that year.

Mo DeBree currently includes some of the finest musical talent in the region with Johnny Morris on drums and vocals, Kevin Moss on bass guitar and vocals, John Holmes on keyboards and vocals, Velpo Robertson on guitar and vocals, and Kelli Moss, lead vocals.

Gentleman Farmer

Bottles of Gentleman Farmer Fresh Hop Ale are now available. Gentleman Farmer is a one-of-a-kind American Style Pale Ale. It is one of a handful of beers in the world made with hops grown at the same place the beer is brewed. This year’s batch is incredibly citrusy and very hop forward.

Fresh IPA in a Can.  Oh yes.

Fresh IPA in a Can. Oh yes.

Also, we just canned ‘Til Sunset Session IPA this past Friday. Awesome opportunity to get fresh IPA. Oh, and it’s the best batch of it we’ve brewed yet.

See y’all at the farm.

Getting Ready for a Busy Couple of Weeks

We’ve got a lot going on at the brewery these days.  First off we’re all getting ready for our Anniversary Weekend Celebration.  Believe it or not, but we’ve almost been open one full year.

As part of our one year anniversary we will be releasing Estate Series Gentleman Farmer Fresh Hop Ale.  Gentleman Farmer is made with hops grown on our farm.  We release it once a year on our anniversary and it’s different each year based on that year’s harvest.  This year’s harvest featured more Cascade and Centennial than in previous years and the flavor is pronounced.  Very drinkable at 7.5% with notes of grapefruit and pine.

Gentleman Farmer

 

We are also preparing for our fist canning run of ‘Til Sunset Session IPA.  As part of our one year anniversary we will be releasing the freshest cans possible.  We are going to can ‘Til Sunset on Friday September 26th and release it hours later at the farm.  ‘Til Sunset Session IPA cans will be available all weekend (9/26-9/28) before it hits the shelves around VA the following week.

Thank you to everyone who has taken this awesome journey with us this year.  I’ll be posting some cool updates for the anniversary in the coming days.

Cheers!

Gentleman Farmer Mentioned in Yahoo! Food

Yahoo! Features LCCB

Every now and then, Virginia’s Farm Brewery gets a little national attention.  Today we had the great fortune of being included in a Yahoo! Food article titled How the South Does Beer.

From the article by Rachel Tepper, “In Goochland, Virginia, Sean-Thomas Pumphrey of Lickinghole Creek Craft Brewery grows three types of hops selected for their ability to thrive in the Mid-Atlantic climate. “Lucky that they’re some of my favorite,” he said. Cascade hops lend notes of grapefruit and pine, while nugget hops offer herbaceous flavors. The third, a variety called “chinook,” rounds out the trio with its robust hoppy character.

In late September, Lickinghole Creek will unveil this year’s Gentleman Farmer Estate Hop Ale, a limited release made with a combination of the three hops. ”What we’re tying to do is create terroir in beer—it refers to a sense of place,” Pumphrey told us. “We’re trying to create a flavor based on our unique climate. We believe our hops do not taste like hops anywhere else.”
