Despot Day 2015 – Saturday, March 7th

Virginia’s Farm Brewery Proudly Presents:

Despot Day 2015

Enlightened Despot Bottle Release

Date: Saturday, March 7th
Time: 12 pm – 7 pm
Place: Lickinghole Creek Craft Brewery
Address: 4100 Knolls Point Dr. Goochland, VA 23063

The Despot Doth Come

Beer Information:
Enlightened Despot
Bourbon Barrel Russian Imperial Stout
11.3% ABV, 78 IBU
Just over 2,500 Bottles Produced
1 Case Limit Per Person

Enlightened Despot

The Enlightened Despot is an amazingly rich, complex and surprisingly drinkable Bourbon Barrel Russian Imperial Stout. Notes of chocolate, vanilla, and delicious Bourbon round out this robust stout. Aged for 8 months in the most premium Kentucky Bourbon Barrels available. The Enlightened Despot is made with 10 specialty grains and contains over 78 IBU of American Hop flavor. This truly is a one of a kind beer.

In the June 2014 edition of Beer Advocate, the Bros rated the Enlightened Despot a 94 saying, “The beer geeks love their Imperial Stouts, and a small handful garner enough hype to draw massive crowds around their release. This one is just as deserving as the next. A sweet malt bomb with roasted grain and alcohol is not all that is going on here; there’s also layers of chocolate and coffee met by alcohol warmth. Something to savor.”

Music:

Barrelhouse:  Performing Time: 12:30-3:30*

Barrelhouse emerged out of a shared obsession with the raw authenticity of blues in the summer of 2006. On the top floor of a vintage music store in downtown Richmond, VA, three of the six members exchanged numbers after a community jam session. A few short years later, Barrelhouse has shared stages with ZZ Top, Gregg Allman, Delbert McClinton, Jimmy Herring, and Jason Isbell.With two guitars, an overdriven harmonica, a notoriously tight rhythm section, and three vocalists, Barrelhouse strives to create something unique, all while giving a respectful nod to the celebrated blues tradition that brought them together.

   Vexine: Performing Time:  4-7*

Vexine is “Sexy, soulful, edgy rock”. 

Featuring Sarah Gleason’s incendiary vocals, Vexine delivers a powerful, high-energy show with Paul Pearce on guitar and vocals, Michael Skiffington on bass guitar and electric upright bass, and Jorge Santamaria on drums and percussion.
