Innovation is about taking tradition and making it your own. This means going local and trying to bring out the culture from the area you are from says Stephen McGirr, sales manager at Wicked Weed Brewing, Asheville, North Carolina, USA.

The brewer combines cellaring methods with new flavors and production techniques, using local botanicals and spices. Wicked Weed’s focus is in West
Coast-style IPAs and sour and wild ales.

McGirr brought the following to Leuven Innovation Beer Festival:

  • Farmhouse Cider, 7%: an oak-fermented carbonated cider.
  • Bourbon Barrel Aged French Toast Stout, 12.3%. An imperial stout brewed with cinnamon, vanilla and maple syrup.
  • Chien de Ferme, 5.3%. brettanomyces farmhouse ale fermented with cherries.
  • Pernicious, IPA, 7.3%.
  • Black Angel, 6.8%. a bourbon barrel aged American sour ale fermented with cherries.
  • Recurrant 7.7% American sour ale fermented with black currants.
