Born in the Meadow. Destined for Greatness.
 
Secretariat’s Meadow
8.5 % ABV, 45 IBU
Imperial Red India Pale Ale
Double Dry Hopped
 
Inspired by one of the greatest race horses to ever live, Secretariat’s Meadow is a grand-champion in the making. As dark in color as the Triple Crown winner and with a heart twice the size of the competition, Secretariat’s Meadow explodes with the flavor and aroma of Mosaic hops. Mosaic hops feature complex flavors and aromas akin to tangerines, papaya, roses and fresh blossoms. To enhance these characteristics we double dry-hopped the beer for maximum effect. Born in The Meadow. Destined for Greatness.
 
Only 500 Bottles Available
Draft will go to distribution
 
From the Augusta Free Press:
 
“The Secretariat beer is not only an important addition to our offerings at the brewery, but it also brings my family’s horse racing legacy full circle,” said Lisa Pumphrey, co-founder of Lickinghole Creek. Her grandfather, David P. Reynolds, won the Preakness Stakes and Belmont Stakes in 1994 with Tabasco Cat, who was sired by Storm Cat, a grandson of Secretariat.
 
“Lickinghole’s modern-day tribute to Secretariat as a Virginia favorite son is an honor for my family and me,” said Penny Chenery, Secretariat’s owner. “The beer is a delightful way to celebrate The Meadow’s glory days but, more importantly, the area’s rich and storied agricultural heritage.”

Enlightened Despot – 2017
Bourbon Barrel Russian Imperial Stout
Aged in Kentucky Bourbon Barrels
11.3% ABV, 78 IBU
The Despot Doth Come
 
4 Bottle Limit
 
The Enlightened Despot is an amazingly rich, complex and surprisingly drinkable Bourbon Barrel Russian Imperial Stout. Notes of chocolate, vanilla, and of course the delicious hints of Bourbon round out this robust stout. The 2017 version was aged for 8 months in Kentucky Bourbon Barrels. Made with 10 specialty grains and containing over 78 IBU of American Hop flavor, this truly is a one of a kind beer.
 
Beer Advocate rates 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.”

Nasty Woman Release

Beer Info:

Nasty Woman
Tequila Barrel Tripel Ale
11.3% ABV, 39 IBU
Aged in Mexican Tequila Barrels

Nasty Woman - Tequila Barrel Aged Tripel
Nasty Woman – Tequila Barrel Aged Tripel

 

Dedicated to the Nasty Woman in all of us. We use American grown Sterling and New Zealand grown Motueka hops that help impart a lemon and lime characteristic with a hint of tropical fruit. Multiple hop additions throughout the boil create a textured, full flavor.

Aged for months in Mexican Tequila Barrels, notes of vanilla, oak and the choicest tequila compliment the honey and citrus notes Three Chopt Tripel is known for. Multi-layered, complex and deceptively smooth.

Bottle & Draft Quantities TBD
Available in 750 ml bottles and draft.
Nasty Woman may go to distribution in both formats.
