Vanilla Virginia Black Bear is the yang to Virginia Black Bear’s yin. Ten Vanilla 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 wherever he wants...And watch out, he hugs. Russian Imperial Stout 9.3% ABV, 78 IBU
Lickinghole Creek Craft Brewery is Virginia's award-winning Farm Brewery, located on 290 pristine acres in Goochland County, Virginia, USA, Earth. We love to make innovative, premium beers for beer lovers. Small batch flavor and hard-to-come-by ingredients are just by-products of the craftsmanship and care that goes into each brew.
We grow many of our own ingredients such as: wheat, barley, hops, berries, pumpkin, watermelon. What we don’t grow, we source from local farmers, and from global farming communities. We strive to be global stewards of clean water, and, unlike most breweries around the world, we sustainably source our own water onsite. Many of our signature beers are aged in ultra-rare Kentucky Bourbon barrels (so rare, we can't name our source) for up to 12 months and we utizlize some of the finest hops in the world in our brews.
We look forward to enjoying our award winning beers!
