Just three weeks after releasing a beer incorporating grapes, Wicked Weed Brewing Co. has done it again.
This time, the Asheville, N.C.-based brewery has released Succession, a 7.3 percent ABV “golden sour” ale brewed with riesling yeast before being aged in white wine barrels with 25 percent riesling grape must. The new release is a collaboration with Biltmore Winery which is also located in Asheville, and “celebrates the time-honored traditions for handcrafting both estate wine and craft beer,” according to the Wicked Weed website. The beer was released at an event on Sunday at Biltmore Winery.
Succession is packaged in 500ml bottles ($14.95) and is on sale at both the Funkatorium and the Brewpub now.
