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.

Fantastic place. Big, diverse, family friendly crowd. Tremendous selection of top WW beers and tasty food. We only had a few apps but would have been very happy with the entrees. Will definitely revisit every time we visit AVL.

Tourists may enjoy it, after all that is the target audience, which I understand. The downstairs is more along the lines of a tasting room, and they have some awesome brews to offer.

Truthfully very few locals (people we frequently see at the many local breweries) go to WW as it is for the tourists.

Phenomenal Brewery with over the top varieties of beer. Wish is was more widely distributed, only for my own selfish reasons. Always happy to see this pop up on a menu. Don't think they have a bad brew out there! :)
