Asheville recently welcomed Wicked Weed Brewing to the beer community. First of all, the location is perfect. They are located right next door to the Orange Peel and a couple hundred feet down from the new Aloft Hotel, which has a huge garage open to the public. Barley’s Pizza and Taproom, one of Asheville’s top beer bars, is located on the same street as well. To top that all off, LaZoom, the wild & crazy comedy tour departs daily from the French Broad Food Coop, which is right across the street from Wicked Weed Brewing.
The setting and decor at Wicked Weed Brewing is very comfortable. There are a few breweries in downtown Asheville that hold a similar vibe… Oyster House and Lexington Ave Brewery. Wicked Weed is the new kid on the block, with high quality craft brews, and they have raised the Asheville Beer standard. I walked in, walked around, talked to a few people.. and the place is smooth. The staff was prompt and hospitable, the beer selection and taste was amazing, and everyone there was having a great time!
And yes, this is Asheville but no, they do not use “weed” or hemp in their beer; unless you are talking about Hopweed. Do you love craft brew? Wicked Weed Brewing is definitely the choice spot to start your beer tour of downtown Asheville. As a matter of fact, you may get stuck there. And you will be well taken care of.
