All LCCB Seasonal Beers Receive Full Virginia Distribution


Heir Apparent:   Available January  – March 

Heir Apparent
Mexican-Spiced Imperial Stout
11.5% ABV
Base Beer for Supreme Leader, Great Commander & Eternal President
“His Time Will Come”

His Time Will Come
His Time Will Come

Heir Apparent is an Imperial Stout with a complex caramel soul tempered by chocolate and roasty undertones.  Sweeter than our  Russian Imperial Stouts at only 60 IBUs but balanced by the heat of fresh Mexican peppers, Vanilla, Cinnamon and Cocoa Nibs. The Heir Apparent is ambitiously biding his time until he comes to power.  His time will come.

Nuclear Nugget:   Available April – June

Nuclear Nugget Imperial Honey IPA
10.5% ABV 105 IBU
Made with Virginia honey from Bubba’s Sweet Nectar
Hops: Magnum, Centennial and Nugget
Yeast: House American Strain
Unfiltered well water

Nuclear Nugget

The Nugget is about to drop. Nuclear Nugget Imperial Honey IPA is a delicious hop libation. It’s not delicate or subtle. What it is, is a hop head’s dream fulfilled. Nuclear Nugget explodes with flavor. Notes of citrus flowers from Centennial Hops and strong herbal and spice notes are added from Nugget hops. The fallout is somewhat subdued through the generous additions of local Virginia honey. Proceed with Caution. The Hour Draws Nigh.

Coconut Quad:  Available July – September

Coconut Quad
Coconut Belgian-Style Quadrupel Ale
11.2% ABV, 27 IBU
1.101 Original Gravity
“More Coconut!”
More Coconut!
More Coconut!
Coconut Quad is the base beer for our highest rated beer, Coconut Delight.
Coconut Quad is a Belgian- Style Quadrupel Ale that tastes like fresh coconut. We used our house Belgian yeast strain, which adds to the complexity of the quad and Belgian Candy Syrup called D180. D-180 is a very dark, award winning premium Candi Syrup, which contributes to the depth and lightens the body of the most authentic Belgian-Style Quads. Tasting notes of raisin, plum, prune & currants & coconut. More Coconut!

Virginia Black Bear:  Available October – December

Virginia Black Bear – Russian Imperial Stout
9.3% ABV, 78 IBU
2 time Gold Medal Winner – 2015 & 2016 VA Craft Brewers Cup
(The Base Beer for the Enlightened Despot & Illuminatos)

Beware the Bear

Bold and aggressive best describe the Virginia Black Bear. Ten Specialty Grains comprise the backbone of the beer and high alpha American hops give the bear her teeth. Notes of dark chocolate and coffee abound. Used as the base beer for the Enlightened Despot, the Virginia Black Bear has escaped to wander where she wants. Beware the bear.
