Montmaretto begins as a light amber sour. Aged in 325 liter cabernet barrels it then undergoes secondary fermentation on a pound per gallon of cherries. A portion of the beer was aged in barrels with almonds to impart an amaretto character to the final beer. The barrels were then blended until the perfect balance was struck.
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.
