Wicked Weed is one impressive operation and probably the most interesting beer coming out of Asheville (or even all of NC) right now. Taking a cue from Dogfish Head and others they really swerve at times and create some unique brews that you won't get anywhere else in the area.

Large outdoor area leads into a long hallway, roughly twelve tabs at the expansive bar and lots of long Old-Europe style tables and booths line the front. Place was packed while I was there, there is an open kitchen in the back. Down the stairs is their private brew-house room that has even more unique beer and some pretzels. That's for the true die-hards as that's where the rare stuff is.

I had an IPA, a super light wheat and their Peach Ale. All very nice, the Peach in particular was suprisingly good, no food but it looked solid and Asheville has great food all around so I'm sure it stood up.

Service? The one drawback of this place, and other reviews have mentioned it, is that it's really the only beer place in Asheville where you will get some douche attitude from the staff. A fellow patron of mine was new to craft beer and had some basic questions and was treated with a roll of the eyes and some surliness from the otherwise nice bartender. Didn't really think that was called for.

Anyway, this place is well worth a stop, it gets crowded so come at off times. Probably the best beer in town. By the way, make sure to stop by and see a show at the Orange Peel next door, one of the best rock clubs in the country.

Vibe is amazing, food is delicious, beers are top notch, staff is super friendly and overall one of the best brewery/restaurants we have ever been to. Definitely try the candied Brussels sprouts with bacon!! They're AMAZING! Freak of Nature Douple IPA is one of the best we have ever had. Overall A+

Stopped by on a Saturday. Good vibe but it was absolutely packed at 1pm. Nice that there are two levels with outdoor seating. One worker was standing off to the side with a hand-held counter counting the occupancy for fire code concerns (that's what he told me). I wanted to go downstairs to look around but was told that they had reached the maximum occupancy level in the basement and that four people were already in line to go down. The lower part had the majority of the sours on tap. Food looked decent.
