One of the Richmond region’s westward-most breweries will continue its drive west, while also growing its farmland home base.

Lickinghole Creek Craft Brewery is planning a $14 million expansion of its Goochland operation, to be completed by 2020. Gov. Terry McAuliffe announced the plan Friday morning and approved a $250,000 state grant to help fund the expansion, which will add 50,000 square feet in production space to its facility at 4100 Knolls Point Drive.

The expansion plan also includes a new Lickinghole taproom in Lynchburg. The state will provide a $50,000 grant for the new location. The $300,000 in total grants will be matched by Goochland and Lynchburg.

Its efforts would create 59 new jobs by 2020, according to the governor’s office, and 90 percent of its brewing ingredients will be sourced from Virginia.

Lickinghole opened on its 200-acre farm about 30 miles west of the city in 2013.

As Lickinghole prepares to expand in Goochland, another Richmond brewer continues to build out a major facility in the county. Hardywood Park Craft Brewery has a $28 million, 60,000-square-foot Goochland facility going up in West Creek. That project, which hit construction delays due to soil issues, is set to open in spring 2018.

Also west of the city in the woods of Powhatan lies Fine Creek Brewing Co., a farm brewery set to open this spring.
