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.

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! :)
