Bdawg says:   This is Wicked Weed's sour and funky beer dedicated tap room.  It is a seperate faiclity on a different street than the regular Wicked Weed.  It is a rustic pub with a barrel room and a large patio.  Laid back and easy.  the beers are like nothing I've ever tasted.  I did not think I was a fan of sours, but these were terrific.  I especially enjoyed the barrel aged sours.

American Wild Ale 7.2% ABV
Wicked Weed's flagship sour, Black Angel, is aged in Kentucky bourbon barrels. After the beer rests in barrels, they then blend in steel tanks with over 2 pounds per gallon of tart Montmorency cherries and copious amounts of Honduran cacao nibs from French Broad Chocolates.
