Two-time Gold Medal Winner at the Virginia Craft Brewers Cup. 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. 9.3%
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!
