Getting Ready for the VA Black Bear to Return

Goings on at Virginia’s Farm Brewery

Today (Friday, January 2nd) we are bottling for tomorrow’s re-release of Virginia Black Bear.  Virginia Black Bear is going into distribution throughout Virginia.  The last time we sent it out to our distributors it sold out in three days, so get it quick.

We are also opening the Tasting Room from 12-6 today and we’ve even got a food truck for a change.  The talented chefs from Great White Buffalo will be at the farm most of the day serving their one-of-a-kind chicken wings.  We’ve got bottles of Bourbon Barrel Three Chopt Tripel left, but we’re almost out.

Back by popular demand, the Virginia Black Bear has once again escaped to wander where she wants.
We are re-releasing the Virginia Black Bear out into the wild. The weather has begun to turn and that’s just how the Virginia Black Bear likes it.

We never intended to release the Virginia Black Bear as a stand-alone brand. She was designed specifically for aging in the finest bourbon barrels available. But after multiple tastings and requests, we’ve decided to set to set the bear free.

Beware the Bear. Virginia Black Bear is the Base Beer for the Enlightened Despot.

Bourbon Barrel Tripel Label - Thanks Rob.

Beer Info & Description:

Bourbon Barrel Three Chopt Tripel is coming back just in time for the holidays. We were only able to find 5 of the choicest Bourbon Barrels around, so less than 1,000 bottles will be made available for sale. This batch will not go into distribution.

As of 11/24/14, Bourbon Barrel Tripel is the 17th Highest Rated beer produced in the Commonwealth of Virginia, according to Beer Advocate.

Bourbon Barrel Three Chopt Tripel is aged for over 12 weeks in the choicest Bourbon Barrels you can find. Bourbon Barrel ThIree Chopt Tripel is not overpowering. It’s sophisticated. Notes of citrus, lemon-lime, honey and coconut are rounded out with the smooth flavor of Kentucky Bourbon. Surprisingly easy to drink at 11.3% ABV and does not have a “hot” flavor.

Nonsuch DIPA

Beer Info & Description

Lickinghole Creek Craft Brewery Proudly Presents:
Nonesuch DIPA (Featuring Amarillo Hops)
8% ABV 70 IBU
One-Time Brew
Draft Only (We will fill growlers)

Nonesuch DIPA

There was “no place so strong, so pleasant, and delightful in Virginia for which we called it None-such”. So wrote Captain John Smith about the site he chose in 1609 when he established an English Settlement near the falls of the James River, a few miles south of what would later be known as Richmond, VA.

Nonesuch DIPA carries on many of the characteristics Captain Smith loved about Richmond. There are few DIPAs so “pleasant” and as “delightful” as Nonesuch. Amarillo hops impart an amazing floral bouquet of orange blossoms, which lead to the fantastic citrus flavor and aroma in this limited-release DIPA.

This is a one-time brew

Spices for 12th Night

Beer Description:
The twelfth night of the twelve days of Christmas is the official end of the winter holiday season and in Colonial Virginia many great raucous balls were held on this night. Twelfth Night Belgian Style Quad evokes the season with tasting notes of raisin, plum, prune & currents, which are beautifully combined with the additional spices of Orange Peel, Vanilla, Ginger, Cinnamon, Allspice, Whole Clove, Star Anise, Nutmeg & Black Peppercorn. Authentic Belgian Candy Syrup contributes to the depth and lightens the body of this unique, winter-inspired ale.

Coat Drive:
We are using this occasion as an opportunity to give back to the community that has given so much to us. Lickinghole Creek is a proud Goochland Company and we believe in helping those in need whenever possible. We are teaming up with the compassionate people at Goochland Free Clinic & Family Services. Their mission is to provide access to health care and basic human services to Goochland community residents who are in need of assistance.

Please Bring Gently-Used Coats

As part of the 12th Night Bottle Release, we will be hosting a Coat Drive for Goochland Free Clinic & Family Services. As the weather changes and the temperature drops, warm coats become a luxury that many in our community can not afford. Please bring as many gently-used coats as you can to help those in need.
