Our craft honors our childhood lessons. We were lucky to learn ours the hard way: “stick with it,” “wipe your tears,” “earn your callouses,” and “try to keep up with your Ol’ Man.” These are the lessons that stay, working their way into our weathered flesh and aching bones until they are as much a part of us as our own names. Ferme de Chien is a foeder-rested, brettanomyces farmhouse ale. This pleasantly tart, lightly hoppy ale is fermented with over a pound per gallon of fresh Balaton cherries to reflect and echo that the craft of the old has not been wasted on the young.
Located in West Asheville, the most recent Wicked Weed addition is this 50 barrel Production Brewery responsible for brewing and distributing their fresh beer offerings such as Freak of Nature Double IPA and Pernicious IPA. Christened in July 2015, the Production Brewery is their answer to the Southeast’s call for more of our beer. Currently, their focus is brewing and packaging our fresh beer to send to North Carolina and surrounding markets with future plans to expand the facility to include tours and a tasting room.
