Wicked Weed — Brewing Appalachia

Wicked Weed Brewing has crafted a special brew to support conservation of mountains, forests, farms, streams, and rivers across Western North Carolina and East Tennessee.

“We are thrilled and proud to be represented as the nonprofit for Appalachia!” says Membership Director Cheryl Fowler. “We are very grateful to Wicked Weed Brewing for donating a portion of proceeds from all sales of Appalachia Session IPA, to help support conservation of the mountains we call home.”

Named for the mountains that surround Asheville, Appalachia Session IPA is on tap for a limited time. A percentage of all sales of Appalachia Session IPA will be donated to SAHC to support protection of headwater streams that flow into three major river basins, including the French Broad River, Catawba River, and Broad River.

Donations to SAHC also help protect farmland for productive family farms, wildlife corridors buffering the Blue Ridge Parkway and Great Smoky Mountains National Park, and special places for outdoor recreation.

“Being a local from Western North Carolina and having the ability to grow up hiking the mountains, rafting the rivers, and enjoying all the wonders nature brings us I am thrilled to be partnering with SAHC,” says Wicked Wee founder Ryan Guthy. “As Asheville continues to grow, it is crucial to help preserve what makes this area so special. We need to focus on the now and help protect for the generations to come.”

For more than 44 years, SAHC has worked to protect scenic views, habitat for rare and endangered native species, and places for people to hike, camp, fish, bike, and more. Our corporate partnerships provide critical funds for us to be able to continue this work.
