Craft brewing is as much a community as it is an industry. Translation: there are a lot of friendly brewers out there, and our buddies Luke and Walt Dickinson from Wicked Weed Brewing in Asheville, NC are two of them. They paid us a visit to brew this collaboration beer for Brewvival 2014, and we’ll be heading north to do the same with them soon.
Holy Weed is giant Double IPA with a twist: green tea leaves from Charleston Tea Plantation were added after the whirlpool. They impart a fresh, earthy character to the utterly insane, citrus-forward hop profile.

Keg @ Holy City. Gold pour with a modest white head. Huge sorachi ace-like blast to the face. Sherbet and orange creamsicle. Flavor has accents of vanilla and jasmine tea. Sort of dirty unwashed grass root character. Very, very sweet. Hot and sickly on the finish. Cool stuff.
