GABF Recap, Stone, Cans, Virginia Black Bear Release and a Beer Dinner

Virginia’s Farm Brewery has a Busy Week Coming Up.

It’s been a whirlwind over the past couple of weeks.  First, we had a fantastic time in Denver participating in the Great American Beer Festival.  We were very humbled to learn that Estate Series Rosemary Saison had been rated the Best Beer at the 2014 GABF by nj.com.

Estate Series Rosemary Saison

Then, shortly after returning, our new friends at Stone Brewing announced they were opening their East Coast Brewery in our hometown of Richmond, VA.

Guess Who's Coming to Town?

Guess Who’s Coming to Town?

Next, we canned Magic Beaver Belgian Style Pale Ale for the very first time.  I’m personally excited to have this beer in a can.  It’s such a unique beer and the format is going to bring it to a wider audience.  We even got a great slogan for it from one of our awesome Instagram followers @chuck_r.  Be on the lookout for this throughout Virginia.

"It's Dam Good"

Now, we’re currently labeling, numbering and carbonating the Virginia Black Bear in preparation for its release this Saturday, October 18th at the farm.

(Tasting Room opens at 4:00)
Place: Virginia’s Farm Brewery, Lickinghole Creek Craft Brewery

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.
