This review will be short. I can’t say enough about Wicked Weed so I will say a little.
I profess a bias towards North Carolina and it’s craft beer affliction. Affliction in the best possible way. Asheville is one of the Meccas for craft beer lovers. If you know craft beer, you know Asheville NC. Wicked Weed is the blossom of two peel-offs from Dogfish Head brewery. Almost everything is barrel aged. They’re cellar/basement/bottom floor is where it’s at…a**hole. They haven’t made one bad beer. It used to be that The Wedge or GreenMan was the center of Asheville but as soon as their doors opened, Wicked Weed stomped their competition. It is, essentially , like comparing a Porsche to a Miata…similar but entirely two different entities.
If you’re not in Asheville for more than a day I recommend doing a flight, you’ll never be able to try every beer and go home, most likely you’ll die; however, there is no nobler death than by hops.
33 Acres Brewing Company
A family owned and operated brewery. Opening Spring 2013. In old english times an acre was considered as the amount of land an ox could plough in a day, later measured as (66′ x 660′). The respect of a hard days work combined with integrity and creativity, are the three ingredients our family run brewery values above all else. Our name combines the power three and the application of six to give 33 Acres Brewing Co. the character we all strive to be.
We are Canadas Brewery of the Year, and the 2012 World Cup of Beers Gold & Bronze Medal winner. Our BC Brewery is focused on being the best, not the biggest. In 2003, we started asCentral City Craft Brewpubin Surrey, BC. Our craft beer grew so popular that in 2005, we launched a canning line, enabling us to sell our beers at our ownLiquor Store, and beyond. Brewery sales quickly grew as our craft beers continued to win awards, and we achieved great success with theRed Racer beerbrand. By 2009 we had reached full capacity at our current BC brewery _ a 3,500 sq. ft. space. OurRed Racerbrand has become a cult icon among craft beer enthusiasts. Our flagshipRed Racer IPAis available at 120 BC Government Liquor stores, and all the finest private Liquor Stores in the Province. Its also available at 230 LCBO outlets in Ontario, and we have just signed an agreement with a new agent in Alberta. Our craft beers are rated some of the highest in British Columbia, and Canada from experts on sites likeBeerAdvocateandRateBeer.
