I’ve heard a couple of reports from folks, including Asheville’s Beer Guy, Tony Kiss, that the guys from Wicked Weed were a big hit at Saturday’s Brewgrass event. That judging from the long line for their beer and drinkers’ reaction to said beer.
Wicked Weed is building its brewpub on Biltmore Avenue next to the Orange Peel. They hope to be open by the end of the year.
Here’s a blurb from Wicked Weed’s page on FB:
Yesterday Wicked Weed Brewing officially entered the craft beer scene pouring beer at Brewgrass Craft beer festival. We felt extremely honored to have the opportunity to pour our beer along side the breweries that inspire us and that we look up to. Wicked Weed had a crazy long line all day and that at one point had over 175 people in it. As far as the beer went we brought 11 different beers the
most popular being; Freak double IPA, Transgressor West Coast Imperial Red Ale and Coolcumber our basil, juniper berry and cucumber American Golden. Our sour release at 3:00 of 4 Wicked Wild beers was one of the more crazy moments for us during the day. People seemed to be really fired up about the beers we were pouring. Overall we were completely blow away by the experience, it was truly incredible.
