Wicked Weed Brewing (Asheville, NC) will be opening a new barrel house and sour tap room in Summer, 2014.
The brewery has been barrel aging, souring, and blending wild ales about 20 minutes from the current location and not open to the public. A new 12,00 square foot facility has been chosen to house the barrelhouse, and will also feature a sour tap room with 10-15 taps. As Wicked Weed’s bottle offerings grow, the facility will have a beer cellar.
“We wanted to have a place where people could see the barrels, learn about the art of barrel aging and give them a place to drink the beers we love so much,” said Walt, Head of Brewing Operations and Wood Cellar Manager. “Im excited to let people really feel what a barrel house is like.”
No official date has been chosen for the opening, but is expect this summer. The new location is located at 147 Coxe Avenue in the South Slope region of downtown Asheville.
