Today (Saturday July 19th) is also the first time the National Beer Expo is being hosted in my hometown of Richmond, Virginia.  I am very proud to have LCCB be a part of this prestigious event.  We will be pouring the Batchelors Delight Rum Barrel Quad, Three Chopt Tripel and Magic Beaver all day.  Tickets can be purchased on their web page or at the door. Stop by, have a beer and say hi. Lisa and I will be there throughout the course of the day.

Oh What A Week and It’s Still Not Over

We have been on overdrive since the Pirate Party for the Release of Batchelors Delight Rum Barrel Aged Quad (BD).  The event went very well, the bands sounded great and everyone seemed to have a lot of fun.  We did sell a ton of BD at the event, but we still have some for sale in the Tasting Room.  It’s not very much, so if you missed the release make sure to stop by the brewery soon.  We will be open all weekend. Oh, and we do still have some Nuclear Nugget, but we’re down to our last 10 cases of that one.

We have just started selling our beer in other parts of Virginia.  This week we have been at four fantastic restaurants in the Charlottesville area.  Boylan HeightsMellow MushroomCitizen Burger Bar & Rapture were fantastic partners in LCCB Tap Takeovers.  We were blown away by the cool people and the great food.  We’re looking forward to being a large part of the Cville Craft Beer Scene.

In other news, we have an amazing Beer Dinner coming up with Mosaic on August 2nd.  Make sure you call to get reservations soon before it fills up.  Click HERE for more info.

Gotta run.

Name Origin:
Like all great legends the facts are in dispute. Batchlors Delight is named for one of the most notorious and important pirate ships in history. Captained by the infamous buccaneers Davis, Wafer and Hingson, who won the ship in a card game. After years of pirating in the Caribbean the trio were set on retiring in Virginia. They were arrested near Hampton Roads and spent nearly 3 years in prison. They were able to negotiate their freedom by giving up a large portion of their booty, which King William used for the “Charitable Purpose” of founding the College of William and Mary.

Pony Pasture Pilsner 5.7% ABV, 30 IBU

Perfect Rivah Beer

Pony Pasture Pilsner is a classic Bohemian Pilsner. Continental Pilsner Malt with a touch of Cara Malt comprise the structure of the beer. American Grown Sterling hops were utilized for bitter and aroma additions with that vintage Czech Saaz addition at 20 minutes for the noble aromatic blend of earth and spice that we love so much. Perfect for hot Virginia days down by the Rivah.

Bottles will be available for sale. One time brew. Just over 2,000 bottles available.

Live music from the “Human Juke Box” Ryan Hearn from 1-4.

Ryan Hearn is a singer/songwriter who has been playing music professionally in the Virginia area for about 15 years. In the past he’s been lucky enough to share the stage with many great musicians: Lynyrd Skynyrd, ZZ Top, Sammy Kershaw, The Four Tops, Gin Blossoms, Keith Sykes, John Frinzi, Jim Morris, Sunny Jim White, and many more. He plays a wide variety of music styles and specialize in Trop-Rock.

The The Illbillys will be playing from 5ish ‘Til Sunset.

Based in the Richmond Virginia area, the Illbillys are a four-piece, multi-genre band that puts their distinctive spin on good time rock-n-roll, classic country, pop oddities and old school standards. With strong harmonies and a knack for “B” side selections, they offer something for everybody.

Gourmet Food Vendors:

Slideways Mobile Bistro offers delicious sliders made from fresh gourmet ingredients, all natural fruit smoothies, and healthier side items such as fruit /cheese cups and kettle cooked chips.

Sunday Bluegrass at LCCB Starts Tomorrow (Sun June 29)

We are beginning a Sunday Bluegrass Concert Series at LCCB.

We’re kicking it off with the uber-talented quartet of Clay Spokes.

Clay Spokes Band

Sunday June 29th

Lickinghole Creek Craft Brewery.  4100 Knolls Point Dr. Goochland, VA 23063

Music starts at 4:00 and goes ’til 7:00.

Tasting Room Opens at Noon and Closes at Sunset.

We’ll also be pouring Bourbon Barrel Tripel all day. Beer Advocate has it currently rated as the The 6th Most Popular Tripel There is. We’re down to our last bottles and will stop sales of it after this Sunday.

Clay Spokes is an Americana band from Richmond, Virginia. Since its inception in August, 2013, the band has been performing its mix of original and traditional acoustic music throughout some of Virginia’s finest venues, like Cary Street Cafe, The Camel, and Fellini’s #9. The Spokes released their self-titled debut LP in February, 2014, and are now working on new material and expanding their touring radius. In their short time together, the band has already shared the stage with such regional stars as Larry Keel and Natural Bridge, Ben Shirley, and The Northerners.

The band’s music features songwriting and lead vocals from guitarists Son House the Second and Tyler Longest, Kent South on vocals, lap steel, slide guitar, and harmonica, David Adley on vocals and fiddle, Zach Hudgins on bass, and Rene Carrillo on vocals and percussion.

Throughout their time together, Clay Spokes have been garnering rave reviews, being called “a beautiful down-home answer to the call of the James River” (Furious George), praised for “embracing the subtle and simple” and compared to Richmond icon Matthew E. White for their use of “supple baritone, experimental melodies, and minimalist, disappearing vocals” (Sounds of RVA).

Cheers!
