Two things I want to make clear for anyone who is just skimming reviews: 1) This place is hard to find if you don't know where it is. 2) It's worth it.
Spending a couple days in Asheville, this was one of my top 3 choices to stop at coming into it, and I wasn't disappointed. We drove up and could not find any 125 address, but fortunately as I drove past my wife noticed a faded handwritten sign that said Wedge Brewing with an arrow and the words "Past the fence and down the steps". If you drive down the road between the RR tracks and Roberts (it doesn't even show up on Google maps so I don't know if it has a name) it will be easy to find. (The picture on here is taken from that road).
Anyways, once we got there, there was a lot of cool sculpture art outside and some more art inside. We went at 5 pm on a Thursday so there was a decent after work crowd hanging out, but we didn't need to wait in line. We got a sampler of all their beers (8 total) for $5. The pours were small for the sampler, but the pints were only $3.50, and I wish I could've stayed for more. The guy at the bar was really nice and friendly and quick with our beers. No table service or food, but it's pretty clearly identified on their website as a taproom and not a brewpub.
Of the 8 beers on tap, 1 was in a style I'm not a huge fan of, 2 were okay, and the other 5 were great beers. The Community Porter was my favorite of the bunch. Overall it was just high quality beer though.
It was still a bit cold which was a bummer, but I look forward to going back in the summer or early fall to sit outside and drink because it looked like a great place to hang out. Overall a great place to drink great beer if you can find it.

located in the arts disticts. lots of metalwork, machinery parts artfully welded together, making the various outdoor seating areas all the more cozy/interesting. the brewery area is actually downstairs & faces the river on the backside. food trucks are available, as are buckets of peanuts. beer is solid, nothing earth-shattering. service is good.
