Wicked Weed Bombadile, available once in the past, will soon return to the Canvas Series.
The base farmhouse ale has been fermented with Brettanomyces yeast, and fresh Florida grown strawberries in a French oak foeder.
The Florida forest is a fight for life from undergrowth to treetop. The woodland encircles itself, squelching sections as others grab hold and flourish. The live oak observes this scramble from its perch of power and permanence. Amidst the hurricanes and heat waves, the alligators and oranges, emerges the true crimson crown of our southern peninsula. Ripened and radiant from the Florida sunshine, the strawberry is king of this bountiful land. Bombadile is a Brettanomyces farmhouse ale fermented with a half pound per gallon of ripe Florida strawberries and delicately aged in a French oak foeder.
Wicked Weed Bombadile has beautiful artwork update in time for this return. Available in 500 milliliter bottles.

The base golden sour was was aged in neutral wine barrels, locally grown North Carolina blueberries. (Neutral wine barrels are typically older barrels that impart very little if any oak barrel flavor to the liquid inside.)
Wicked Weed Myrtle is a golden sour ale aged in neutral wine barrels. Two pounds per gallon of fresh, whole North Carolina grown blueberries contribute an earthy and tannic backbone to this uniquely southern sour. When the time is right, the barrels are blended to achieve the perfect balance of berry and house Brett culture.

Wicked Weed Bramble Barrel has joined the Asheville, North Carolina brewery’s Canvas Series. Inspired by the the Gin Bramble cocktail.
The base beer for Wicked Weed Bramble Barrel is an American sour ale, brewed with local blackberries, and aged in Cardinal gin barrels. Those barrels give the beer a touch of spearmint. The finishing touch is lemon zest, to properly mimic the cocktail.
The bramble cocktail hails from 1880’s London, England. Dry gin and lemon juice are the stars of the cocktail, along with red fruits like blackberries and cranberries. (No cranberries in this beer.)
Wicked Weed Bramble Barrel is available in the usual 500 milliliter bottles. Distribution started this week.

Once the beer was ready, it was blended again with additional grapefruit.
Distribution of Wicked Weed Oaxacan started this week across the brewery’s territory. Available in 500 milliliter bottles.
