I wish Wicked Weed was in my neighborhood. I would go there every day. I loved every beer I tried there, and was only disappointed that I couldn't try more. Note that they don't offer beer flights on Fridays or Saturdays, since it's too busy. (And I visited on a Friday, so I had to order full servings or try tiny samples.) Food was very nice, and servers were friendly and helpful. They all knew their beer selection well, which was refreshing. Dining area upstairs is nice for casual visitors, and the basement area is great for the beer snobs like me. Highly recommended.

Parking was a bit of a challenge, at least the free variety on a Friday night. We got lucky and found a ground level lot and parked very close at a cost of $5. Beers were spot on and food was quite imaginative. Who knew brussel sprouts could be so good? Server was very well versed on both beer and food offerings. Will definitely be back and soon.

Nice place, cool bar, good beer. BTW Freak isn't HT, not even close, but it is good, just not that kinda good. Service is terrible which isn't the fault of the guys/gals/ on staff. How can a handful of staff help maybe 200 people? They can't. How can you have a huge full bar with a few spots two deep , and have two bar keeps? You can't. I would never think of ordering food here unless I was planning on a 3 hour stay. Managements fault, and they would make a hell of a lot more money keeping beer glasses full instead of sitting there picking your nose for 45 minutes waiting on a wait staff to ask if you need a beer. Or most likely pushing thru the bar crowd, and just getting your own beer. Beers not that good to go thru that hassle again, nice to try once not twice.

I was extremely happy with Wicked Weed. Though you had to go downstairs to order the "cool" beer, it kind of added to the whole experience. The service was excellent, despite being very near capacity. The waiter was very accommodating to our 2 toddlers that were with us. The beers on tap were very good. My favorite was the moonshine old fashioned ale, served in a rocks glass with an orange peel. The food was top notch, but not overly expensive. 3 adults got entrees with 2 apps and it was under $50. That's fairly decent in my book, for that type of food/atmosphere.

I solid stop when in Asheville. The beer is inexpensive, and the atmosphere is awesome. It was wall to wall people with an hour wait when we showed up at 6 o'clock on a Wednesday night. Both the upper and lower rooms were filled to capacity, and waiters and waitresses were serving those who were standing just as those who were sitting. The service was outstanding, and the prices very reasonable, and that is why I would recommend anyone to check it out.

Huge freakin’ brewpub. Upstairs there is outside seating with fire pits, a square open bar with a dining area alongside. Downstairs there is a bar to the right, seating to the left as well as an outside area where people can congregate to chat and be a bit more rowdy.
Plenty of choices upstairs (regular lineup) and downstairs (specialty).
Downstairs is where all the “special” beers are on draft, i.e. the sours, wilds, barrel-aged and saisons. There were all quite good and above average. The barrel aged ones were a bit too heavy on the barrel and the saisons were a little too phenolic. The wilds were pretty super though.
Service was quite nice both times I went, one busy, one not.
Burial and Wicked Weed have really taken the lead by leaps and bounds in Asheville and both need to be must stops.

Guess this is the place to be in Asheville, opened 8 months ago according to bartender. Nice looking upstairs with big section for outside sitting. Can not comment on food as I had non they do serve food though. The down stairs sis the place for beer lovers on my way down the steps can smell the malt boiling in the kettle just like I was home brewing just awesome. Wow the menu is nice Sour ales with brett, a big stout aged in rum barrels that's different. Long list of saisons plus the regular brews. Prices were reasonable loved being able to have light fruity wild ale then a big ass stout. Wish I lived in Asheville would be there frequently.

We stopped through Asheville I our way from Concord to Missouri and were pleasantly surprised at the quality staff and beer selection.
We tried the Tyranny Red, Lil Heresy Brown, Freak and the newly tapped PumpkAnne Ale. All were delicious and all were fairly priced and expertly poured.

There are two area - an upstairs which has a bar and the dining room for meals and a downstairs bar area with outside seating as well. The downstairs is more casual and has the better beer selection, so obviously that is where I chose to spend my time. There are also complementary pretzels and mustard downstairs. Not a ton of indoor seating but enough to be cozy - quite an eclectic selection of music was playing but I enjoyed it (Ben Folds, Flight of the Concords, etc.).
The beers were all very well poured, at the proper temperature, and in the proper glassware. Each beer I was served had the proper space left for head and some amount of head on it.
Since we sat at the bar downstairs, our service was prompt and friendly with us never having to really wait to get another beer. The bartenders were friendly and quite competent with a good amount of beer knowledge including telling us about new beers that will be coming on tap in the near future.
In the downstairs bar area there were roughly 25 beers on tap across a number of styles including barrel aged and wild/sours. Upstairs looked to have about 15 beers on tap but I was not able to tell as I walked through it there were all unique.
I thought the food was good though I only ate from the more limited bar menu available downstairs. I had a really enjoyable burger with pimento cheese and fried pork skins. Quite good.
Prices were in line with other places in the area.

Everyone told me I had to check this place out whenever I made it back to Asheville. Very impressed with the huge selection of beers they had, somewhere better 12-16 different beers. Plenty of room outside to hang out under the canopy and enjoy the beer. Didnt siut down in the restaurant upstairs so I have no idea what the food is like. Highly recommend paying them a visit if you're in Asheville.
