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.
