Wicked Weed Brewing closed out Asheville Beer Week with the Funk Asheville: A Wild and Sour Beer Tasting on Friday, May 30 at the ‘Funkatorium,’ giving patrons a glimpse at the new Coxe Avenue Barrel House that Wicked Weed will be opening later this summer, and with proceeds benefitting Pints for Prostates, a non profit awareness group working to reach men on issues of health and wellness through the universal language of beer.

Though some may have had initial reservations at the high price for ‘yet another beer event’, Funk Asheville was anything but ordinary.  The event exceed nearly all the expectations of patrons, and proved to be an extremely well run, and dare we say, innovative beer tasting event that sets a high bar for future area beer events.  With special works of art work on display from photographer Parker J Phister and fashion designer R Brooke Priddy, Funk Asheville delivered in spades on ambiance, funk, fun, and great beers from some of the best brewers in the country.
