Wicked Weed Brewing will soon be releasing a new beer inspired by a former draft-only release.
According to Erin Jones, spokesperson for the Asheville, N.C.-based brewery, Wicked Weed will be releasing El Paraiso, a 9.5 percent ABV imperial stout brewed with cocoa nibs and El Paraiso coffee sourced from Colombia by Mountain Air Roasting. The beer was inspired by Red Eye Stout, an 8.6 percent ABV imperial stout that was released in 2013 and also incorporated coffee.
El Paraiso will be package in 500ml bottles. In an email, Jones told Tenemu that the stout was brewed on Wicked Weed’s 50bbl production facility, “so it will hit wider distribution,” and is scheduled to be released before April.
