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.

Thought all the steel artwork around this place was incredible. Great atmosphere, friendly people, and above all, tasty brews! I don't think I had one that I didn't like, but their Biere De Garde stood out over them all. Also love the fact that this place is located below a bunch of art galleries that are open to the general public, so got to see some great art as well. Would definitely go back if I'm ever in Asheville again, and highly recommend it.

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.

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.

Spent 10 minutes circling the block on which this place is located. Almost didn't realize that you have to drive around to the back side into a dirt lot beside the railroad tracks. Once we found the place, we sidled up to the bar. Pints (or snifters for the high gravity stuff) were going for $3.50, a definite plus.

As it was a warm (not hot) early evening, the wife and I hit the deck with a bowl full of (complementary) peanuts. There is a nice shaded patio to the side of the tasting room with some typically funky Ashevillian art.

We spent a thoroughly enjoyable hour there just relaxing at the end of the day.

The patio provides one of the nicest experiences you will find at a taproom. The fence and fixtures are works of iron art, and the concrete benches along the walls are unique. There are awnings for shade on hot days. Asheville is an interesting and pleasant place in general, and the brewery is in an old building that is part of an arts district with studios scattered around several blocks. I tried the wit, abbey ale, and IPA. The abbey was fine, and the other two were outstanding. I will go there again and plan to stay longer.

A short ride on the W1 (or W2) bus from downtown drops you off in the River Arts District, an evolving neighborhood where old warehouses have been converted into galleries, restaurants, cafes and one excellent 1300 barrel brewpub called Wedge Brewing Company.

Wedge Brewing can be found in the lower section of Wedge Studio, itself located in a building that once housed livestock in the 19th Century. Literally situated adjacent to railroad tracks, Wedge can be reached via Lyman Avenue, or down a staircase hidden behind several exhibits of iron sculpture.

It is as quaint a place as anyone can relax and enjoy some quality craft beer. Enter the taproom, which takes up a small corner of the brewery; check the chalkboard for whatever beer is available (about 8 drafts), order a pint or a sampler and then head outside and grab a seat at one of the communal tables. Note: there is neither table service nor is there any inside service. Another Note: Wedge offers an express IPA window for their delightful Third Rail. Also on tap is a complex Abbey style, a hoppier West Coast IPA and a hearty porter. Should you desire something to eat, there is a food truck parked next to the entrance. The patio is a lively place with locals, tourists, kids and dogs.
