Lisa and Sean-Thomas Pumphrey founded Lickinghole Creek Craft Brewery (LCCB) in rural Goochland County, Virginia, a rural 45-minute drive west of Richmond. The brewery with a Belgian flair sits sit on a 221-acre farm where the Pumphreys began growing hops years ago. Sean and Lisa both hail from the Richmond area, but Sean got interested in craft beer while attending the University of Montana, drinking Moose Drool and other northwestern brands. They began seriously contemplating their own brewery in 2009. In 2011 they convinced Goochland County to allow farm breweries on agriculturally zoned land. The local ordinance limits them to producing 15,000 bbl a year.

Sean uses his homebrew system to conduct test batches. Once they decide on a recipe, brewer David Achkio -who’s been brewing for 20 years, brewing at Pyramid, and a bunch of breweries out in Pennsylvania-scales it up for the larger system

Our name pays homage to Little Lickinghole Creek, which runs through the farm’s rolling hills. Since precolonial times the creek has been known as the Lickinghole where wildlife stopped to drink from the nourishing waters. May the tradition continue.
