Consuming the Craft

Jun 3, 2019

Jen Currier is the Maven Wood Cellarman at Wicked Weed Brewing Company and a graduate of the Craft Beer Institute. At Wicked Weed, she works in the sour production facility where she focuses her skills on creating unique, sour beers. She holds an Associate degree in Applied Science, Brewing, Distillation, and Fermentation from the Asheville-Buncombe Technical Community College and a Bachelor’s degree in Human Biology from North Carolina State University.


Jen joins me today to share her career journey into crafting sour beer and the new Wicked Weed beverages hitting the market. She shares some of the flavor profiles she’s used when crafting sour beer and why she believes craft beer should not maintain a consistent taste from batch to batch. We also discuss how we can improve the Booze Clues peach brandy and enjoy a second serving Booze Clues with a snotty Black Angel sour black ale.
