Lickinghole Creek Farmers’ Market Saison At The Camel For RVA Playlist 4th Birthday Party Tomorrow

RVA Playlist Bday LCCB Pin posterMy good friend RVA Playlist will celebrate 4 years of highlighting the Richmond music scene with a birthday party at The Camel Wednesday May 28 starting at 7pm.  The feature of the night will be a FREE show from Richmond bands Vexine, My Darling Fury, and The Trillions.  Before the music starts at 8pm, The Camel will tap my collaboration with Lickinghole Creek, Farmers Market Saison.

Created especially for  RVA Playlist’s 4th Birthday Party, Farmers Market Saison is cask conditioned version of Short Pump Saison with ingredients found on the first day of South of the James Market’s spring season.

On May 3rd, I found Agriberry strawberries,  Pleitez Produce’s pickling cucumbers, and Village Garden’s herb blend.  The strawberries were coated with turbinado sugar and some of the herb blend then grilled over charcoal.  The cucumbers were simply peeled and chopped.  Small additions of lemon peel, cracked white peppercorns, more herb blend and homegrown mint were added to the pin before allowing it to condition for three weeks.

The pin will be tapped when the doors open at 7pm.  So come out and enjoy a beer and stay for what will surely be a great night of live music.  Head over to the Facebook event for more information and updates.

Save the date for March 1st from 1 – 8PM when Lickinghole Creek will debut their Enlightened Despot at a castle!

Due to the overwhelming response we’ve gotten from people from around the country for our Bourbon Barrel Stout release on Saturday March 1st, we had to find a larger space to accommodate everyone. Since we wanted to keep Despot Day in Goochland we reached out to the only place as extravagant as the Enlightened Despot…Dover Hall. They graciously accepted our request and we are very proud to partner with Jennifer McBride and her awesome team to bring Virginia a one of a kind beer release event.

Dover Hall is a private estate located in the rolling hills of Manakin-Sabot, Virginia, conveniently situated in between Richmond and Charlottesville, and a two hour drive from Washington, DC. The estate’s 33,000 square feet command a majestic view of 55 acres of rolling hills and woodlands.

Known as Goochland’s Castle, this larger than life venue is the perfect setting for releasing a one of a kind beer.

Enlightened Despot is a Bourbon Barrel Russian Imperial Stout aged just over one hundred days in  15 year old Pappy Van Winkle Family Reserve barrels.  Brewed with ten specialty grains this beer racks in at 78 IBU and 11.3% ABV. There will only be just over 2000 bottles available at $15/bottle with no bottle limit.

There will be special cask versions of Enlightened Despot tapped at different times throughout Despot Day:

Vanilla Despot
Chocolate Despot
Coffee Despot

Head over to the Facebook event for more information.  Music will be provided by Barrelhouse and The Big Payback.
