Asheville, NC — Wicked Weed Brewing has announced their expansion of distribution into the state of Colorado slated for the week of August 8th. The Asheville, North Carolina based brewery will be launching this market by hosting tap takeover events throughout the state.
“Colorado is an outstanding beer market and we feel honored to pour alongside our amazing craft beer friends there,” states Ryan Guthy, Owner and Head of Sales. “We have seen such love and support from locals through our GABF and CBC visits and we can happily say that they will now be able to find a consistent supply of Wicked Weed beer.”
Colorado craft beer enthusiasts can expect to see a variety of sour and mixed culture farmhouse ales in bottles and limited draught. Consumers can also expect to see some of Wicked Weed’s hoppy offerings from their Production Facility, although eighty percent of the beer entering the market will hail from the brewery’s sour program.
Wicked Weed has signed with C.R. Goodman Companies, a family run distribution company that has been in business since 1983.
“Wicked Weed is excited to announce that we will be launching the Colorado market with C.R. Goodman Companies as our wholesaler,” says Ryan Guthy. “Their ownership team shares the same passion and dedication to craft that we do. We look forward to partnering with such a great group of friends on this new endeavor.”
