The latest entrant into Richmond’s growing craft beer scene hopes its name is one people will remember.
Lickinghole Creek Craft Brewery, a fledgling farm brewery about seven miles west of the Goochland County Courthouse, hopes to open early next year.
Founder Sean-Thomas Pumphrey is working to get the brewery up and running on his family’s 221-acre farm. After he gets through the county zoning process and all the other state and federal hoops and red tape, he plans to build a 4,100-square-foot building and model the brewery after a Virginia-style horse farm.
Pumphrey is busy planting a hops field at his farm. Eventually he'll have an acre of hops planted, which he'll be able to use in his beers in about three years.
