RALEIGH, N.C. June 20, 2016 – Mims Distributing Company , a leading North Carolina wholesale beverage distributor, has announced the release of Ad Idem , a new craft beer brewed through a first-time collaboration between Wicked Weed Brewing in Asheville, North Carolina and The Lost Abbey in San Diego.
Over the last year, these two breweries each have produced three unique beers all aged in oak barrels and perfected by the final blend. Ad Idem, in the end, is a French oak-aged golden sour ale with a copious amount of peaches. The intent of this unique brew was to blend the bold flavors of three distinct beers into one new creation. Wicked Weed brewed a golden peach sour, the first of the three beers, in December of 2014. In February 2015, The Lost Abbey crew made its way from California to Asheville to brew the second beer – a Brettanomyces blonde ale.
One month later, Wicked Weed brewers and brothers Walt and Luke Dickinson traveled to San Diego to brew the last of the three beers – a spontaneously fermented (using the natural yeast and bacteria in the air) golden sour ale. The combination of these three beers creates the first edition of Ad Idem, with talks of future editions as well.
