Lickinghole Creek Craft Brewery – Seasonal Portfolio of Beers:
All LCCB Seasonal Beers Receive Full Virginia Distribution
Heir Apparent: Available January – March
Mexican-Spiced Imperial Stout
Base Beer for Supreme Leader, Great Commander & Eternal President
“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
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
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)
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.
