Wicked Weed Brewing (Asheville, NC) has made a sour name for themselves the first 18 months of being open. The brewery’s sour and wild ales are in high demand across Asheville.
Wicked Weed has come to a cross roads with the rising demand of their traditional ales, and the growing love of sours. The solution? The Wicked Weed Funkatorium.
Just a few blocks from Wicked Weed’s current location is a new warehouse that will house up to 1000 barrels of various wine and liquor barrels for the brewery’s expanding sour program.
The Funkatorium will have it’s own taproom featuring a special cellar bottle list, and 16 taps that are almost all sour offerings. Chef Cardiff Creasey will be creating a specialty small bites menu to compliment the Funkatorium sour lineup.
Beer Street Journal spent the afternoon with Wicked Weed’s Abby Dickinson in the Funkatorium for an exclusive first look.
Anchor Brewing Company (San Francisco, CA) has released the sixth edition in their Zymaster Series, Saaremaa Island Ale.
Each offering tells a story, and Saarremaa Island Ale is no different. This beer is inspired by brewmaster Mark Carpenter’s trip to Saaremaa Island in the Baltic Sea. The local beer had a really unique flavor, thanks to the local yeast. He returned from the trip with brewer’s yeast used to create #6.
Zymaster No. 6 is a medium-bitter pale ale with Old World hop flavor and aroma. Made with pale barley malt, it has a light body, clean finish, and overtones of freshly ground clove and allspice similar to a Belgian ale.
Anchor Saaremaa Island Pale Ale will be available in 22oz bottles and draft for a limited time.
Style: Pale Ale
Availability: 22oz Bottles, Draft. Limited one time release.
The series at glance:
No. 1: California Lager
