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.

(The Base Beer for Illuminatos & Hug the Despot)

Vanilla Virginia Black Bear is the yang to Virginia Black Bear’s yin. Ten Specialty Grains comprise the backbone of the bear and high alpha American hops give the bear his teeth. Notes of dark chocolate and coffee abound and fresh vanilla rounds out the flavor. Used as the base beer for Illuminatos, the Vanilla Virginia Black Bear has casually drifted to meander where he wants. Watch out, he hugs.

This is a great opportunity for everyone to come out and enjoy fresh, local beer in a bucolic, family friendly, farm setting.

Sneak Peek Into LCCB’s Beers:

Estate Series:

Gentleman Farmer Estate Hop Ale: 7.5% ABV, ??? IBU The concept for this beer is the reason LCCB exists. We wanted to create a beer with ingredients that we grew on our family farm. Gentleman Farmer was made with hops grown on the farm the brewery is housed on. One of the only of its kind in the Commonwealth, Gentleman Farmer is LCCB’s foray into adding terroir into the world of Craft Beer. Very limited release.

We will also be debuting our flagship beer:

Magic Beaver Belgian Style Pale Ale: 5.5% ABV, 35 IBU LCCB’s flagship is named after the nearby Magic Beaver pond on the farm’s property. Premium Belgian Pilsner Malt and Authentic Belgian Yeast are combined with American Grown Galena, Columbus and New Zealand Pacific Jade hops. Magic Beaver is a hop-forward beer that mixes the mystery of Belgium with the flavors of North American and New Zealand hops.

2 Special Release Beers: Descriptions and types to be released later.

Our entire lineup will be available on draft, in growlers, and some will be available in bottles beginning at 2pm. Special Release Beers will be dispersed in different variations throughout the day.
