Lickinghole Creek Craft Brewery
Opened in 2013, Lickinghole Creek Craft Brewery is located on 290 acres of rolling hills, fields of barley, hops, wheat, corn, pumpkins, sunflowers, trees, and a whole lot more.
Our Farm Brewery location is out in Goochland County, about 35 miles west of Richmond, and about 35 miles east of Charlottesville. It’s kind of hard to find, but that’s okay, because once you arrive at the brewery you won’t see any trace of civilization.
Knolls Point Drive is a private shared gravel road. When visiting the brewery please drive slowly and responsibly in respect to our neighbors and rural area.
We are a water-conscious brewery, because the main ingredient to beer (and life) is… water. We source our water about 500 feet below the surface to tap into the purest, cleanest water around. Brewing also uses a ton of water to make beer, so we take the higher road and filter all of our wastewater before returning it to the Lickinghole Creek / James River watershed. It’s not easy, but it’s the right thing to do.
It all started on a teeny, tiny 1/2 BBL SABCO pilot brew system in Sean and Lisa’s house. Now, the brewery boasts just under 5,000 sq. ft., and a 20 BBL system — JVNM (American Made!) Brewhouse, x5 40 BBL fermentation vessels (FV) and x1 gigantic 80 BBL fermentation vessel.
We love sharing our workspace with customers. Stop by and schedule a behind the scenes tour of our shiny stainless steel vessels.
