Beer: Our Beers

Our Beers

  • Freak of Nature Double IPA

    The Freak of Nature is our San Francisco inspired hoppy monster. At 8% abv and who knows how many ibu’s, this beer is our shrine to the Hop. Absurd amounts of the big West Coast hops gives this beer its citrusy, weedy nose and big, dank flavor. We dry hop with 48lbs per batch, which is over 3lbs of hops per barrel. In keeping with the classic style of the West Coast double, sugar plays a large part in creating this dry and minimally bitter double IPA. The Freak is particularly pintable for the style, so if you dare to enter, we welcome you to the Freak Show.

  • Pernicious IPA

    Pernicious is our flagship India Pale Ale. With minimum malt complexity, we dry hop this beer with nearly twice the normal amount of hops typical to this style. The combination of juicy, tropical fruit-forward hops with heavy, resinous American hops is the epitome of a West Coast IPA, made right here in the Southeast.

  • Glutenous Minimus

    This IPA is the third gluten reduced beer we’ve brewed here at Wicked Weed. Its ripe melon aroma leads to a crisp, refreshing flavor balanced with notes of honey and malty sweetness. Trust me when I say, you won’t miss the gluten in this beer!

  • Wicked City

    Brewed in collaboration with Holy City Brewing in Charleston, this beer was made with their local Brain Strain hot peppers and habaneros. A complex malt character backed by a mild heat makes this imperial stout dangerously drinkable.

  • Freaky Friday DIPA

    We love hops at Wicked Weed. This Double IPA was brewed with some brand new and experimental hops from the American Dwarf Hop Association. Jarrylo, hop #484, and hop #871 create a hugely aromatic IPA.

  • Sir Ryan the Pounder

    Sir Ryan the Pounder is an American session ale. Its bready malt character is balanced with bright Centennial and Falconer’s Flight hops making this beer exceptionally drinkable. This ale was made to enjoy with friends in pints or pitchers, so pull up a stool and cheers to Sir Ryan.

  • Coolcumber

    Inspired by a Hendricks gin basil cooler, Coolcumber is made with cucumber, basil, and juniper berries. Just like making a great cocktail, this beer is dosed carefully with its ingredients to create a one-of-a-kind flavor experience. Golden in color, this ale is wonderfully drinkable.

  • Sweet Talker IPA

    Low in alcohol, high in flavor: that was the goal in creating this super session beer. We used body building malts and some of our favorite hops to create a full-flavored, hop forward IPA. We highly recommend sharing a pitcher of this beer with a friend.

  • Don't Tread on Maize

    Brewed with all American hops, this beer is an American Pale Ale with the addition of flaked corn and cornflowers. Proceeds from this beer will be donated to the organization Veterans Helping Veterans, benefiting their Pints for Patriots campaign. Golden in color with corn characteristics, this brew makes helping others feel easy!

  • Tyranny Hoppy Red Ale

    This ale is a nod to the Northwestern states. Tyranny is a robust, sunset red colored ale. The use of multiple varieties of crystal malts gives this ale a huge amount of malt depth. Flavors of toffee, caramel and sugarcane bring a sweetness to the hop flavor that is hard to achieve. This ale has a dank evergreen and grapefruit aroma.

  • Hippy Stink

    Asheville Beer Week is a perfect time to collaborate with our fellow breweries. We brewed this beer with our friends at Pisgah Brewing in Black Mountain, NC to celebrate their 10 year anniversary! This baby hits you hard with a pungent hop aroma, but then picks you back up with subtle apple, pear and stone fruit flavors. Don’t let the stink frighten you as this one goes down smooth.

  • Mint Julep

    Part of our cocktail series of beers, this brew is inspired by the ‘unofficial official’ drink of the Kentucky Derby. This ale is amber in color with malty flavors up front and a pleasant minty finish.

  • Reticent Saison

    This is our house saison made in the tradition of the farmhouses in Belgium. We ferment this ale in our open fermentation room to allow the saison yeast to create as much flavor as possible. Reticenct is brewed with oats (giving a silky mouthfeel) rye (adding a slight spicy character) and all noble hops, making this an extremely authentic saison.

  • Poperinge Saison

    Named for the largest hop growing region in Belgium, our Poperinge Saison is made, this time, with hops sourced from around the world, and is fermented with our Saison yeast. Aromas of sweet pine, bubble gum, and a hint of lemon make this beer an easy drinking brew.

  • Bedeviled Golden Strong Ale

    This classic Belgian golden strong ale clocks in at 9.8% abv. Gold in color and rich with spicy clove and bright fruit aromas, this ale is perfect for warm nights.

  • Blind Faith Dark Strong

    This is the darkest of the Belgian ales. We used copious amounts of Pilsner malts along with brown sugar and Honey malt creating a hugely complex and deep ale. The Belgian yeast draws out flavors of fig and chocolate, making this one decadent Belgian brew.

  • Pallino Wit Biere

    This Belgian style wit biere is the essence of spring. It is light with a floral nose, and with hints of lemon and chamomile. This beer has a creamy wheat body that finishes dry, crisp and citrusy. We promise it will feel like sunshine in a glass.

  • XLIV Mango Habanero Saison

    Spice up your life with this delicious early-summer saison. The use of mangos and habanero peppers in this beer makes for a refreshingly sweet and spicy delight.

  • Abbey Dubbel

    Warm and complex, this classic Abbey Dubbel contains notes of fig, overripe banana and coriander. Mahogany in color and rich with deep, spicy clove-like aromas, this beer is a highly drinkable example of this style.

  • Recurrant

    Recurrant begins as a deep amber sour ale and is blended onto copious amounts of black currants. It is then laid to rest in 500 liter cabernet puncheon barrels. The larger red wine barrels lend a delicate complexity to the final blend.

  • Oblivion Sour Red

    This ale is for all of you sour beer lovers. Brewed with 88 pounds of blackberries and 20 pounds of dried dates this sour beer is full of depth. A crisp tartness was achieved through the 8-10 month aging process in red wine barrels with lactobacillus and pediococcus.

  • Genesis Blonde Sour

    We fermented this beer with papaya, mango, guava and pineapple that leads to a huge tropical fruit character. This fruit explosion is balanced by a lactic tartness that was developed by aging in wine barrels for 8 months. Genesis is tart and tropical with notes of musty hay and citrus.

  • Bretticent

    This traditional saison is brewed using North Carolina grown barley, wheat, and rye from Riverbend Malthouse, open fermented, and then dry hopped with New Zealand hops. The beer is then finished with Brettanomyces.

  • Brett Burglar

    Brett Burglar is our open-fermented brettanomyces version of our Hop Burglar IPA. Although the recipe is specifically modified to work with our house brett, the blend of hops and blood orange ring true to the original inspiration.

  • Imperial Coolcumber

    This is Coolcumber’s big brother. At 9% abv this beer spend 3 months in gin barrels. The signature juniper spicing of these gin barrels comes through brilliantly and melds with perfectly with the infused fresh cucumber and basil.
