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.

Interior is much larger than it appears from the outside, with high ceilings and plenty of seating space--that doesn't make it easy to get a seat around lunchtime, even on a Monday! Rustic and woody, the interior has plenty of natural light, but the dark wood seems to suck some of that out and keep it a little more cozy. The kitchen is visible behind glass, and they also have a downstairs area that I didn't check out.

Service is a little lacking, especially if you are unlucky enough to get stuck at the gigantic communal table which just really needs to go as these things are fucking irritating and service never quite works smoothly surrounding them. If places are going to offer communal seating, they should just stop trying to pretend they can service those tables and force people to get up to place their own orders. Either way, for this location, it just seems like they don't have enough people.

Tap list was pretty vast, especially when augmented by the in-house bottle list. And then when you also can walk right over to the bottle shop and pick up at least 20 different beers of almost any style, this is an excellent beer stop. The beer was excellent as always, as it's fun to experiment and try different things at Wicked Weed.

The food seemed pretty darn tasty, if not your basic, trendy brewpub food. We only had chips and dip, which was very clearly handmade and delicious.

We were there around the holidays. Very upbeat place with a lot of Wicked Weed beers. They offered free samples and pretzels. The food with good and the service was quick as well as accurate. Had growlers and bottles of many beers available.
