Lickinghole Creek Craft Brewery
Virginia’s Farm Brewery
Lickinghole Creek Craft Brewery is a water-conscious, biologically friendly farm brewery carefully crafting unique and innovative beers. Set on a 290 acre farm in the heart of Virginia. LCCB grows hops, barley, herbs and spices for use in our Estate Series of beers. Lickinghole Creek is a water-conscious brewery. We brew with well water drawn from the deep. Our wastewater is purified on site and returned to the Lickinghole Creek watershed.
Our name pays homage to Little Lickinghole Creek, which runs through the farm’s rolling hills. Since precolonial times the creek has been known as the Lickinghole where wildlife stopped to drink from the nourishing waters. May the tradition continue.
Lickinghole Creek Craft Brewery, Virginia’s Farm Brewery, proudly supports the local 501 C3 non-profits. LCCB donates $1 for every barrel sold wholesale and $10 for every barrel sold for on-premise retail to the non-profit of the month.
September, 2015: RVAgriculture Inc. RVAg, Inc. is the non-profit “wing” of ChiknEGG Productions, LLC. They are a 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to creating Farmer’s Market Venues and providing much-needed Agricultural Education for little cost.
October, 2015: Goochland Historical. Founded in 1968, the Goochland County Historical Society is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, tax exempt educational organization created and operated for the presentation, preservation, and protection of Goochland County heritage and tradition. To fulfill its mission, the Society has collected manuscripts, artifacts, genealogical, and architectural information pertaining to Goochland, and Virginia in general. These resources, some of them rare and unique, are made available to the public at the Society’s Historical Center.
November, 2015: J. Sargeant Reynold’s Sustainable Agriculture Program. With the rapid growth in planning, production, and marketing of organically produced foods, there is an increasing need for qualified personnel trained in sustainable agriculture and organic food production methods. The Career Studies Certificate in Sustainable Agriculture is designed for persons interested in producing food crops for personal consumption or for sale to the public through farmers’ markets and other direct-to-consumer marketing strategies.
December, 2015: Massey Cancer Center. The Massey Cancer Center’s mission is to serve as a comprehensive center of excellence in cancer research, prevention and control, patient care and education. Their guiding principles are to make important discoveries about cancer and to translate these discoveries rapidly into better prevention, detection, treatment and control of cancer to enhance the quality of life of all individuals affected by cancer.
The Farm Brewers at Lickinghole Creek Craft Brewery are excited to make some big expansions to the existing hop, barley, rosemary, hay and pumpkin farming. After receiving such a great response to our product and farm brewery, we have the resources to hire some educated farmers and let the brewers concentrate on the beer.
We work with Gary Hodges and Raymond Hawk on our farm. Through their guidance and hard work, Lickinghole Creek Craft Brewery was able to harvest 25,000 pounds of 6 Row Thoroughbred barely and recently sent 2,000 pounds of barley toWood’s Mill Malt House in Nelson County to locally malt our own farm grown barley.
This is really exciting. We are also planning on growing a Two Row Variety called Endeavor for next year’s harvest.
Two-row barley is not readily grown in this part of Virginia, so again, we’re breaking new ground.
