Hardywood's Christmas Morning lends a cheerfully heightened decadence to their Gingerbread Stout through deep conditioning on locally roasted Mexican Chiapas coffee beans from Black Hand Coffee Co. Hints of sweet honey and oven baked gingerbread greet the comforting nuances of freshly brewed morning coffee in this imperial milk stout. Skip the leftover cookies and milk and awaken your senses with this delightful holiday tradition.
Bold, resinous and bursting with bright grapefruit aroma, this IPA is a tribute to the decades of hard work by conservationists to restore the James River as a bounty of vibrant aquatic life, eco-friendly recreational activity, and in our case, fresh brewing water. These efforts have culminated recently with the symbolic return of the endangered Atlantic sturgeon, a prehistoric, yet majestic behemoth of a fish, spotted as far up the James River as the fall line in Richmond. Your purchase of this beer supports the James River Association. Thank you for being a part of the Great Return.
9 Mile is a smooth, hoppy-go-lucky drinkable IPA will a conscience. There is classic IPA bitterness perfectly balanced with a citrus-like sourness which gives 9 Mile IPA it’s sessionable drinkability and fruity characteristics.

With every can sold, a portion of the proceeds will go to creating access to clean water for this village.

12 Month Apple Brandy & Bourbon Barrel-Aged Blended Imperial Stout
A word from the Virginia Beer Company: "We brew beers for all and we share cheers with all. As such, we have joined numerous brewers around the world to participate in the Black is Beautiful initiative. Launched by our friends at Weathered Souls Brewing Co., Black is Beautiful is a collaborative effort amongst the brewing community and its customers, in an attempt to bring awareness to the injustices that many people of color face daily and to show that the brewing community is an inclusive place for everyone. For our version of Black is Beautiful, VBC will take the original open source Imperial Stout recipe developed by Weathered Souls, and blend Waypost Imperial Stout vintages aged for 12 months in Apple Brandy barrels and Willett Bourbon barrels to showcase flavors coming together from across the country. We stand with our colleagues, our friends, and our neighbors; and we will do what we can to lead by example."

American Brown Ale with Vanilla, Cinnamon and Maple Syrup
French Toast Brown Ale is Lickinghole Creek's hop-forward American Brown Ale conditioned on fresh vanilla and cinnamon, with noticeable maple syrup flavor. Nuanced and delectably quaffable, you’ll be wondering why they didn’t make this sooner. They seek inspiration in all that they do, why not find it from the most important meal of the day? Let them drink French Toast!
We pulled out our finest pair of Zircon Encrusted Tweezers and dry-hopped this explosively juicy IPA with the freshest crop of Zappa hops that we could get our hands on. Look forward to flavors of mango, peaches (En Regalia), grapefruit pith, a touch of spice, and pine to round out this decadently hoppy ale.
Key Lime Pi is a pastry sour inspired by the ratio of the circumference of the best dessert (key lime pie, obviously) to the diameter of that same pie. To create this delectable dessert delight we started with our base sour beer and employed an extremely advanced, complex brewing technique called “buying a bunch of key lime pies and putting them into the beer.”
Lickinghole Creek's 305-acre farm brewery sits on the Little Lickinghole Creek, part of the Maidens Landing James River watershed. Their water is drawn at the purest point, 500 ft. deep, filtered, then put back where it came from. A portion of Maidens Blonde proceeds go to clean-up efforts for the James River in Richmond, VA so you can feel good about doing good when drinking this refreshing blonde ale.
We brewed this traditional German Hefeweizen with the freshest local ingredients that we could source. Hundreds of pounds of wheat were grown and harvested from right here on our farm. We said bye-bye to the Reinheitsgebot and loaded this yeast-forward wheat beer with fresh strawberries; there is plenty of banana on the nose from the hefeweizen yeast used.
Nuclear Nugget is a hop bomb. It’s not delicate or subtle. What it is is a hop-head’s dream fulfilled. Nugget explodes with flavor notes of citrus, flowers (Centennial) and strong herbal and spice notes (Nugget). Local honey attempts to contain the Nugget fallout, only to be radiated with with dry hop Nugget additions. Not intended for the faint of heart or the uninitiated.
Hardywood Peach Tripel is bright and effervescent, showcasing a delightful balance of fruity esters and spicy phenols that harmonize with subtle notes of white pepper and honeysuckle.
