Show 424, May 8, 2021: Ryan Wicks, Wicks Brewing Co., Riverside Part Two

Brian Herbertson and Ryan Wicks of Wicks Brewing Company

“Located just off the 91 Freeway in Riverside, Wicks Brewing Company has been bringing award-winning craft beer and food to the Inland Empire since serving their first pint back in April of 2013.”

“Wicks’ brewpub houses a beautiful 7 bbl copper brew house, which is visible from the open floor taproom and restaurant. Visitors will often see their brewers at work creating the next batch of great craft beer. 
​One of the largest brewpubs in the Inland Empire, Wicks Brewing features 25 draft selections, seltzers, a great rotating cider list and even wine!”

Wicks provides a full brew pub menu, too. The Pretzel Bites (Original and Jalapeno) are baked in-house using grain from their brewhouse.

The Hot Wings are baked and are seasoned with a house blend of proprietary spices. All the Wing Sauces (Pineapple Buffalo, Traditional Buffalo, Bards Song BBQ, Habanero Lime and Garlic Parmesan) are made in house. The Ranch and Blue Cheese sauces used for dipping are also all made in their kitchen,

Always community focused Wicks Brewing is participating in the first national StacheStong benefit (featuring 200 craft breweries in some 30 states.) This month of May campaign is raising vitally needed funds and much needed awareness for brain cancer research during national Brain Tumor Awareness Month. Participating #BrewStacheStrong breweries are raising money through sales of their limited-edition S.M.A.S.H. for STACHE. This SMaSH (single malt and single hop) beer has been uniquely crafted by each participating brewery.

For #BrewStacheStrong Wicks has brewed the S.M.A.S.H. Pilsner with Loral Hops and Pilsner Malt. It’s available on tap through the month of May at the Wicks BrewPub and at select area restaurants and taverns.

StacheStrong is a 501(c)3 non-profit devoted to raising funds and awareness for brain cancer research. Defeating brain cancer and improving the quality of patients’ lives is our daily focus. Our organization has become a beacon of hope for countless individuals and families afflicted by this disease and we serve as an ardent advocate for all those impacted by brain cancer.”
