Working at a craft beer store in Western North Carolina, I have been hearing non-stop about this Wicked Weed Brewery down in Asheville... and there is a good reason why, their beer was amazing. Now if only we can get their beer where I live because I believe that out of all the breweries I have been to in North Carolina so far, this one is the best. I was there on a Friday so I felt is necessary to begin with a beer they pour only on Friday's, the Black Angel Cherry Sour while I am no expert in sours, yet, I liked it better than the few I have tried from various breweries across the country. The bourbon barrel aged Hey Porter and wine barrel aged Oppressor Port Barrel Red Ale were both solid as well.

I thoroughly enjoyed my food, a Bison Burger with Blue Cheese cole slaw. The service was a little lack luster but I believe we got there during a shift change although the waitstaff did seem a little unorganized. The tasting room downstairs is a cool set up and while the barreled beer and sours are only poured downstairs they were more than cool with us going downstairs while we were eating to get the tasting room only beer.

I enjoyed the beer at this brewery so much that it will be hard for me to go to any other brewery from now on when I visit Asheville. If you are in Asheville, I highly recommend bypassing the bigger breweries and going straight for this one.

First time to Asheville--parking tougher than expected... Arrived around 1 PM on a Friday afternoon. I went straight downstairs to the beer bar rather than the upstairs restaurant. Not too crowded when I was there--kinda empty, but a good vibe. Great selection of stuff. Everything I had was very, very good. Service was attentive and knowledgeable. Food (bison burger) was good. This is a cool place, but mostly, my rating is based on the great beer...

Very cool brewery with a contemporary beer hall vibe.... Love the rotating selection and decent food menu. Always packed on the weekends though so don't expect to find a place to sit.

Great place. One of the best brew pubs that I have been to. Love the size, the connection of outdoor to indoor space, the variety of beer and food menu. Wicked Weed has done an outstanding job. Parking is difficult as you have to park on the street which can get pretty crowded with the other businesses nearby. The beer here is hop heavy with the occasional different brew downstairs.

Downstairs are concrete floors and walls of stone. 6 hightops, picnics rolling out the raised garage doors, and brewery equipment to the rear, and a small corner copper topped riveted together bar with a wood stave base. 25 taps from 5 barrel ends on the barback, and the wall above all blackboarded up listing tap selections. Seems there are a few beers here different than up of stairs (Tabernacle Crush, 7.8%, Sauv Blanc, gin, & southern peaches, nice beer; Ruffian Imperial Black IPA, 9.8%, all licorice but somehow misses.

Aside from the anticipated Hipster abundance, this place is legit. Plenty of WW beers on tap (I had the Free Byrd and Lumiere Rouge). Service was pretty good, attentive, although I don't think she was well-versed in the different brews offered. No biggie. The food - was way above average. I had the Bison Burger and was seasoned and cooked perfectly. I was also with my wife and two daughters, who are VERY picky eaters. They had the fish and chips and finished it easily without any prodding. Place is kid friendly as my 10 mnth old son was not the only baby in there. Overall, this is a place I would love to re-visit with more time to sample and perhaps, without the entire family in tow.
