Wicked Weed adding a second sour facility

Wicked Weed New Sour Facility 2016

Asheville, North Carolina’s Wicked Weed Brewing is adding a fourth facility in Summer, 2016.

The brewery is now in their forth year of brewing. It all started with a brewpub located downtown. In 2014, Wicked Weed announced the addition of the Funkatorium, also located downtown, dedicated to wild and sour beer production.

This summer, the new facility has the capability to double the wild and sour beer output. A temperature controlled, 57,000 square foot facility is being constructed on 17 acres, near the Asheville Airport and Sierra Nevada.

“The goal of this expansion is not just to increase our production of these beers. Having more space to focus on process and room to move will help us continue to refine our craft and evolve as a brewery – Walt Dickinson, Owner and Head Blender.”

The brewery hints at the addition of spontaneous styles of beer (lambics) and perhaps even a coolship to support that process.

The new sour facility will be dedicated to training end education of the staff, sales team and retailers. There are no plans to open to the public.
