We’re excited to announce that this Saturday, June 25th at Noon, we’ll be hosting the Texas release of Wicked Weed Brewing out of Asheville, North Carolina!

We’ll have the following Wicked Weed beers available at our tasting room, both by the glass and at bottles to go: 

Marina — American sour ale refermented with peaches and apricots 
200 bottles, 500ml, $18.50/bottle, limit 1
La Bonté Plum — Tart farmhouse ale with plums 
200 bottles, 500ml, $13/bottle, limit 1
Oblivion — Sour red ale aged in wine barrels with blackberries and dates
100 bottles, 500ml, $18.50/bottle, limit 1
The Parking Lot — Grisette brewed in collaboration with Jester King 
800 bottles, 500ml, $14/bottle, limit 4

We’re also very excited to announce that Wicked Weed Owner/Head Blender Walt Dickinson will be at Jester King on the 25th for the release! Walt is a wealth of knowledge when it comes to making farmhouse ales and barrel aged sour beers, so we look forward to our guests having the opportunity to meet him.

Wicked Weed is a very special brewery and friend to us. It’s frankly amazing what they have achieved in the beer world in a relatively short amount of time. They are making some of the most complex, enjoyable, well-executed, drinkable farmhouse ales and barrel aged sour beers in America, and we’re incredibly excited to pour their beer next to ours,” says Jester King Founder Jeffrey Stuffings.

The release will be only the second time in our history that one of our collaboration beers brewed abroad will make it into Texas. The licensing fee structure in Texas makes it very difficult for small, out-of-state brewers to sell their beer in our state.

We hope you’ll join us Saturday for the release! Here’s some images of the bottles, courtesy of Tyler Malone of The Second Shooter :
