The 10th and final brewery visited on my first trip to Asheville was Wedge Brewing Company, which is apparently located in the historic arts district or so I remember the signs in the neighborhood reading. The building it sits in certainly seems to be, at least. It appears as though most of the space is used as artist studios and the like on a communal basis. Pretty cool.

To find the brewery’s main face, you have to walk down some stone steps and around back, beside the river and railroad tracks. Here you’ll find a lot of awesome metal sculptures integrated into the back yard, a ton of picnic tables, tables and chairs also made of welded metal scraps, and a concrete patio with several well-painted corn hole sets. The whole setup seems like a casual summer afternoon over at your best friends house.

Except there’s a brewery there and a taproom where you can claim any one of roughly 10 beers. They don’t do flights – at least not at the time that we visited – so we tried a couple of shots of beers before deciding on a couple to sip on. We ended up with Belgian strong golden ale named Golem and some sort of wild yeast brown ale. Both were tasty, but I’d take the Belgian any day of the week. For our second set of drinks, we went with a cider and their IPA, which I figured must be fantastic since they have their own draft room for it separate from the main station.

It wasn’t.

I don’t know if I was just beered out at this point, but I actively disliked their IPA. It was thick and seemed slightly goupy, and for some reason tasted extremely salty. I don’t know if that’s how it’s supposed to come off, but I was not a fan. I’m also not a fan of the no flights, because there were more than a half-dozen other beers that I would’ve loved to try.

Other than that, I liked the place. It has a great atmosphere, nice people, and knowledgeable bartenders who don’t mind if you try a few things before ordering. The ever-present food truck also makes amends for the lack of food.

I love brewpub and food truck symbiosis.

Located outside of downtown in the River Arts district. Kind of industrial yet artsy with a limited amount of indoor seating and more outdoor seating. Cornhole was available to play outside as well as a new patio was in the process of being constructed. Bowls of peanuts were available (free) for consumption. Crowd seemed to be mostly locals and quite a few older folks (people in their 50s/60s).

Beers were well poured into proper glassware for the style. They seemed to be at the proper temperature with the right amount of head.

Service was nothing special - the people seemed to know the Wedge beers and could describe them well but I would not describe them as friendly or inviting. They were not overly quick in service but they were not rude either (maybe it was because we arrived right after they opened).

Decent selection - about 10 beers/ciders representing a number of different styles from Belgian to IPA to Porter.

Food was not available at Wedge but there are generally food trucks available outside.

Prices were reasonable and in line with other places in Asheville.

Located off the beaten path. With an inside smallish bar where you must order regardless but could also stand and consume.
Outside is basically a deck with some old-fashion metal chairs. Not exactly the most inviting setup.
They had about 7-9 beers on draft, the best was the DIPA and the rest were fairly forgettable. I guess the Flemish Brown was also alright but really needed more time for the bugs to eat and develop even a moderate sourness.
Service was quite friendly, so I can’t complain there, but this place came with high recommendations and I can’t say it fulfilled my expectations. Really close to Duck Taco though which is amazing, so there’s that.

This brewery is a little different than most. Their commune area is mostly outside, with a couple bar style counters, a few picnic tables, cornhole games and general green space. Inside, there are just a few seats across a bar counter. It's obvious they intend for you to buy your beer and take it outside, which is perfect when the weather permits. I had their Golem, which was a pleasant Belgian strong ale, and a lot of their architecture capitalizes on the arts district which they reside in; we were sitting on stools made from giant cogs, pretty neat. The entire venue kind of seems like an afterthought, like there was a little space left in the building and they crammed a mash tun in and let people sit in the grass outside, but it's kind of charming because of it. I'd love to come back here with a handful of friends and play a cornhole tournament or something, it would be perfect for that.

Many people in Asheville, and even back home in SEPA recommended Wedge as a "must visit" location. Honestly, I don't get what all the fuss is about.

The brewpub is located in a strange part-residential part-commercial / quasi folk artsy area. As some other reviews have reflected, it can be a bit confusing to actually find the place. The building does say "Wedge" out front, but on street level, there is no entrance to the actual brewery...you have to go around the side and walk down a somewhat Wonderlandish/mechanic's-art-project stairway to find the little entrance to the pub.

As far as atmosphere goes, in my opinion, there is simply nothing desirable here. The bar itself is pretty small, seating maybe 10 people, and there's some oddball grotesque (let's face it: butt ugly) sculptures decorating the otherwise plain and simple walls. The outside area seems to be the main gathering place here, and again, I found nothing desirable about it. It was like a bad family BBQ where everyone was way too drunk, loud, and annoying.

As far as beer goes, there were 8 selections on tap, including one that was an "outside only" line...whatever. I sampled everything, and really didn't find anything to be worth writing home about. Pretty standard homebrew kit stuff all over, with a "hemp ale" being the closest thing to breaking the normal mold.

No complaints about service really. Prices were cheap, so I guess that makes the beer easy for anyone to enjoy.

It seems like a lot of people like this place, so I suppose it's worth checking out if you're in town, but if you're on the edge, I'd say you're not missing much if you decide to pass it over. Personally there's absolutely nothing that would bring me to revisit.

Vibe: Although it's a long walk from downtown, this seems to be the laid back place for locals to hang out in Asheville. There's not much in the way of indoor space except for a few stools near the bar but just about everyone hangs out on the loading dock or at the tables in the parking lot next to the railroad tracks. They give out free peanuts to munch on and there are some cornhole boards outside.

Quality: Beers were served in the proper glassware at the proper temperature. Most beers came in pint glasses but a saison was served in a snifter glass.

Service: Service was pretty quick and I liked the idea that they had a separate "express" window on the loading dock to get IPA.

Selection: There were eight beers on-tap in the variety of styles the day I went so I wasn't disappointed about the selection.

Food: Having just come from 12 Bones Smokehouse, I didn't try the food, but there is a different food truck every day. There was a pizza truck the day I was there and they looked pretty good.

Overall: I really enjoyed hanging out at this place as there was plenty of tables in the shade. Beers were really reasonable and only $3.50 or $4.00 for a glass.

One if the best small breweries. Awesome location by the river in the arts district. This is a must for Asheville visitors and locals alike. Their brews are great but you can't miss with the Rasberry Imperial Stout. Definitely my favorite! Don't miss out.

I love this place and the location and vibe of it really make it a fun destination. I usually visit here for a couple beers while in town and this time proved no different. The bar is in the arts district in an old warehouse and it really shows with lots of old metal and car parts making up the fencing and seating. On any given night you can find all walks of life laughing and having a good time over a few beers. On previous trips I have seen people playing cards, people playing cornhole, people having a jam session, people selling local vegetables. They have an expansive area of picnic tables and chairs overlooking the railroad tracks.

The beer is solid but I would say straight forward overall. I enjoy all of their selections with their IPA being the most popular, I usually jump around and try different things while there.

They serve peanuts but they usually have food trucks which have always been good. On this visit they had a pizza truck but it sold out of pizza before I got some.

Overall this is a cool space to go have a beer. They are dog friendly and I always have a good time while here. I have not been during bad weather in which case I'd probably avoid because most of the seating is outdoors, which is what makes it fun.

This was a great experience. There was a selection of nearly 10 to 12 different brews to choose from. There was even an "express" lane for the IPA which I thought was a great idea. Prices were quite reasonable for craft brews. We had the Iron Rail IPA, of course, there was an express lane and went back for the Derailed Hemp ale which was brewed with hemp seeds. The atmosphere was amazing, very eclectic and industrial looking as it was adjacent to the rail yard hence the names of the brews. Quite a few picknick tables set up for enjoying the beautiful weather as well as corn hole tables. The crowd was very diverse with a mix of yuppies, hippies, middle agers and old folks too. If you are ever in the Asheville area do not miss the opportunity to experience the Wedge.

Rustic exterior, no frills, just peanuts, corn hole and beer...excellent beer. Iron Rail IPA is a juicy malt forward beer super consistent. 3rd rail this year is liquid hoppy gold, take your time here though its a monster. Vladim Bora is the Raz. Imp Stout, that usually rings in the holidays and last through Feb. Over all the best beer brewed in Asheville currently in regards to consistency, balance and flavor. would like to see some barrel aged beers from these guys and some cask in the future to really send them into the halls of greatness.

In the arts district, down by the river. Wedge is on the bottom level of a wedge shaped building with a junkyard vibe going on outside of the brewery. There was a pizza-truck on site that appeared to be cranking out some pretty awesome za's.

The inside was small and quite crowded. I dug the peanut situation and certainly got the impression that Wedge was far less touristy than some of the other breweries in town.

Not a lot on tap, as expected, but the raspberry imperial stout was really good and the potent triple IPA helped warm the body after a blustery walk from the city centre.

Rad place.

Wow. Last stop of Asheville, and it's a shame. This was by far our favorite stop (aside from App Vintner). The atmosphere was absolutely fantastic, with a hodge podge of young, old, round, and square people. The beer was great. I had an imperial stout on tap, along with a porter, an IPA, and an IIPA. All of the beers were really good, and the IIPA was super tasty, well above average.
They are in the basement of a large order building, and the best way to get to the pub is walk down the stairs on side of the building. They have a large outdoor area, part of it was covered with an awning, and a huge yard for playing cornhole or frisbee or whatever else you prefer. The service was fine, nothing special. It was busy, they were attentive, but I didn't try to start a conversation or anything or the sorts.
This is the best brewery in Asheville, hand down. Atmosphere, beer, location, everything. Well worth a visit.

We went here for a couple pints in the late afternoon before going out for something to eat. It was raining like bejesus when we arrived and it was fun to sit with everyone on the loading dock/deck and watch the rain. Then the sun came out. Really fun afternoon.

A - Very fun crowd and pretty diverse. People with dogs, young people, older people, slackers, and people in formal business attire. Layout as is how most have described with the main bar in a small area with all the beers served there except for the IPA which is at the "express window" which we missed since we couldn't see any signs due to everyone hiding from the rain. But the main attraction here are the outside spaces. The deck/dock has counters with cool welded up found material stools that all face the back parking/patio area. Tons of picnic tables, chairs, and places to hang out. Once the rain let up you could see how people spread out and use all the outside space.

Q - The beer was good overall. We gravitated to the IPA and took a growler home.

S - Service was good and despite the crowd we never had to wait long in line and the bartenders were fast and friendly. The express window for IPA was great for us.

S - Selection was good for a brewery. No guest taps, but that's okay. They had five on at the main bar and the IPA window. Pilsner, Pale, Wit, Alt, and a Belgian Strong Golden. Pretty diverse selection for a small brewery.

F - I put in N/A as they technically don't have food. They do have free peanuts which is awesome and there is a food truck that rotates during the week. We only had peanuts so I can't comment on the food truck. Check their web site for food truck info, beer currently on tap, and directions.*

Overall this is a great place and should not be missed. It is not a brass and ferns brewpub. It is eclectic, interesting, and truly a pub in the sense that you can't help but get into a conversation with other people around you.

* For all the reviewers that have complained about directions to this place and how to find it, please just look around and use the resources at hand. Their web site has very complete directions and we really had no problem finding it. You'll know when you're close so just get out of your car and walk around. It isn't that big a deal to actually visit one of the other shops in the neighborhood to ask directions and check out their stuff either. Just relax and enjoy the area and be glad it isn't in some homogenized mall.

Another stop that required two visits - one during a homebrew festival and another the following day.

Atmosphere: Wedge is located in the arts district, at the base of Asheville near but not quite abutting the French Broad River. The brewery is located in a strip of shops and studios and requires that you go down a brief flight of steps. Admittedly had a hard time finding those steps the first time around. Metalwork art lines the walkway at the bottom of the step leading to the bar and an auxiliary bar further back. There are several seating areas, including tents set up in the parking lot. The bar is small, crowded at times, with a chalkboard taplist. Free peanuts too!

Quality/Service: Saturday was a zoo, so I'll focus on Sunday. In the more laidback hours, the staff is talkative and relaxed. We chatted for a few. Dustier and dirtier with a pronounced art feel. The outside deck has a fan that mists as it oscillates - nice for a hot day.

Selection: 7 beers on tap; six in the main bar and the IPA only available at the auxiliary tap. Strange set-up and I purposefully chose not to investigate. We worked our way through most all of the line-up. The super saison, advertised as bretty, was good but lacking in brettyness. The IPA was good, as was the witbier and pale ale. The other offering that we tried, the 3rd Rail double IPA was, as advertised, quite close to a barleywine with a slurry of hop thickness.

Food: Free peanuts! Other than that, nothing.

I had perfect directions to the Wedge, and still passed it up OVER and OVER! From the street, you can't see it because you have to the stairs that lead to the Brewpub and the French Broad River. The first area of the brewpub you come cross is a brass/metal wall of all sorts of odds and ends (pipes, screws, wires, bolts, screens, etc.) that are "purposely" fit together to create an extra patio. You can definitely tell it was made to be in the Art District here! Keep walking and you find a Food Truck off to the side with a variety of options. I didn't have the chance since lines were so long to enter the brewpub and get your brew inside. A group of people were playing "Corn Hole" on the side of the place and you don't see this much.

Stairs lead to the inside of the brewpub where peanuts are available and a Igloo Cooler of water. The Chalkboard of brews available was easy to view from the counter also. Only three bartenders were working that day (with the owner running back and forth helping out b/c of the business this Friday). All were very friendly and worked hard! Appreciated their samples also before enjoying two of their beers. They also kept my Growler of Iron Rail in the fridge for when I was ready to leave.

They had their 6 beers on-tap [Golem, Iron Rail, Abbey Ale, Russian Imperial Stout, Porter, and Pilsner (can't remember names for these two)]. Great selection! Wish I was able to take home the Abbey Ale in my growler, but the Iron Rail was awesome!

Now I can see why this is the "best kept secret in Asheville" (words from a local)! Fun community of people, great beer, and a fun environment! Check it out if you have a chance and/or by the Blue Ridge Parkway or Pisgah Forest.

Besides the pigeons, which signs graciously offer you to take home, this place is great. The inside tasting room is small but there is plenty of seating in the patio area. The brewery is adjacent to some train tracks and the area has a feel that has yet to be gentrified. Cheep tasting flights and glasses of brew offered.

After hitting up some of the other breweries in Asheville I found wedge brewing to have not only the best beers in town but also the most comfortable to hang out at. Good times and good brews at Wedge Brewing.

Other than the LAB (mostly for the food), the only brewpub to get a return visit during a recent trip to Asheville (Pisgah is too far out in the sticks). Wedge is hard to find if you try to follow the directions posted on their website, because there is no left turn at the intersection they direct you to. But if you look for the RAD and head to the tracks, it's a no brainer. Big dirt lot with the Wedge truck. During the week it was busy only during rush hour, but on Friday it was packed as soon as the doors opened. Very small bar but friendly atmosphere and a covered patio and side yard with random sculptures from the art studios in the same building. After Pisgah, easily the 2nd best beer offering in town. The RIS and dubbel are standouts. No food except for peanuts. Dog friendly (and kid friendly, apparently). Pints were $3.50 or $4 with 8 beers on tap; but only 2 were available for pitcher and growler.

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.

Wow was this a diamond in the rough. I assume this is some sort of regentrification district, as it is in an old industrial area and flanked by distant railroad tracks. Place was not numbered real well, and part of the street was broken off. On to the brewery. Entrance in the back. Place I found to be packed with friends, family and even a few dogs out for walks. Incredible atmosphere, and inside the brewery is great artwork. Beers were great, and although it is only my opinion, their plain porter was one of the best I ever had and another Belgian beer was also fantastic. People spilled outside into the night from this place, a true sign that this was quite the place to be in beer city America. If I am within 100 miles of this place, I will drive out of my way to go here again; it is that good.

I love Wedge!!! Me and my girl go down there at least 3 times a month. The beer is great and high abv%. The only reason i put 3.5 for selection, is you cannot get a pitcher of the highest abv beers. They told me this was because the pitchers are so cheap and there are so many ingredients crammed into those beers, they do not make enough money.
Free peanuts are provided, and when the train rumbles by, the atmosphere is very unique. Play some backgammon or watch free movies projected on the side of a truck. My favorite Brewery, and spot to hang in Asheville.

I'll be honest. For the life of me, I have no idea why this place would get a good beerfly review, no matter how much you might like this brewery's beers.

Located in the what I gather has become the trendy River Arts District, the area looks to be a run down industrial area that is currently experiencing rejuvination and considerable gentrification. There are now a number of art and pottery studios in the area, as well as a few cafes.

One thing that would be helpful is for the BA site to provide a bit more information about this place's location. The upper street area of Roberts avenue doesn't actually show a building with the 125 address (there is 123 and 127, but no 125), and if you're not from the area, you might end up leaving before you notice that down below in the back of the upper buildings on Roberts avenue, is the Wedge brewery and taproom. There are no signs, so it takes a bit of work to locate the parking area (in a field), which you can locate by driving further down Roberts and making a right turn into a field.

As for the brewery area itself, it consists of a smallish taproom with a few stools at a smallish bar. The taproom is pretty stark with no decorations to speak of, but with a chalkboard listing the beers poured that day, along with pitcher, pint and growler prices. Patrons stand in line to pick up pints, pitchers or growlers, and then meander back outside to wherever they plan to drink them. Outside there are a few tables and chairs strewn around a small patio and into the field area. Like I said, the area still has the look of a slightly run down industrial area. I guess it's OK, but why anyone would give the atmosphere here more then an average score is a mystery to me.

The selection the day I was here consisted of 6 different beers I believe. I tried three of them, and found the helles bock to be the best of the bunch. Otherwise, I can't say I was exactly bowled over by anything I sampled, and I thought the 3rd rail IPA flat out awful.

Service was friendly, no complaints there. However, it consisted of a pretty friendly employee at the cash register pouring you a pint or pitcher when you got to the head of the line. He would also pour free small samples if you wanted to try something before making up your mind. There's no table service of course, and no food to speak of either. They do provide complimetary peanuts I believe, along with bowls to put them in.

Prices were quite reasonable I thought. Pints were $3.50 a pop, while pitchers were $10.

The Sunday I stopped by Wedge was doing a fine business and I can see why. They make decent beer and it was a nice day to sit outside with some friends with a few beers. If you are a fan of Wedge beers, then I would recommend stopping by some afternoon. Otherwise, it's a place I'd recommend stopping by one time to check out the current Wedge line-up, and leave it at that.

Yet another place in Western NC that was just this side of impossible to find. After twice around the block and finally asking a kindly local (look, I am a guy, we are known for our reluctance to ask for help), we found Wedge on the unmarked lower level below the street, accessible at the end of the road and around the corner. Yay!

A fun place with a small bar and some stools and bar rails around the wall (some of which my wife had to reach almost above her head) with buckets of peanuts to snack on (awesome!).

A nice beer selection, though samplers were not available, which was kind of a drag. I had a tasty IPA before we moved on. A nice place I'd be happy to check back in on.

I was thrilled to finally be able to make it in here on my last trip through town. Soo many new places to see. Dropped in here on my way home to check it out. I had been a fan of their beer for a while and wanted to check it out. Really cool, laid back place struck me as quaint from the moment I walked in. Reminded me of a little place in the village or something. Not cramped, but small with a couple people just basically hanging out. Had four offerings on tap when I was in there, but I had already had a rough day so I chose to just scope, say hello and save the beer for next time. A solid stop and next time will have to hang out for a little while
