RICHMOND, Va. — Just in time for a respite from Black Friday shopping, Shockoe Bottom’s newest watering hole is open for business.

Lickinghole Goodwater, a satellite taproom from Goochland-based Lickinghole Creek Craft Brewery, opened Friday in its new space at 1717 E. Franklin St., reported

The three-barrel brewpub will have three new beers on tap, including a blonde ale and honey red ale, and also will serve beers from Lickinghole’s main brewery at 4100 Knolls Point Drive in Goochland.

The 6,000-square-foot space includes an upstairs loft and can seat roughly 100. A modified food truck is built into the back wall, with a full kitchen behind it.

“We’ll have guest chefs, just like a food truck park,” co-owner Adam Stockton said. “You’ll show up and see who’s there serving food.”

Lickinghole Goodwater will be open on weekends through the new year while it awaits a full ABC license. Once granted, Stockton said, it likely will be open Tuesday through Sunday.

“The plan is to eventually be a brunch spot,” Stockton said. “No one in town really does breakfast beers – radlers, breakfast stouts, mimosa-type beers.”
