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.

Nice place with great outdoor seating. Hostesses were worthless and rude as was the guy in the bottle shop. Vibe is tough to grade. The patrons were nice when spoken to but........hipsters. It seems like the bigger your neckbeard the better your service was. The servers downstairs were extremely kind. Beer selection was on point and the nibbles were good.

ours a reddish orange color with high carbonation evident and two inches of off white head. Red wine, sour dark fruits, vinegar, spices, Belgian yeast, oak, and citrus hops. Very tart. Medium body and moderate carbonation.
Overall not as fruity or sour as Oblivion, but quite good; definitely a hoppier sour.
