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.

  • Humberto

    When brewer, Humberto thinks of summer, his mind always comes back to the margarita. That’s why we named this mango-margarita beer in his honor. Made with mangos, lime and salt, this summertime cerveza is sure to quench Humberto’s thirst.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Peach Pi'd

    The first of the ‘Pi’d’ series of beer, this 3.14% abv session ale is light with a subtle peach flavor and aroma. Keep an eye out for more of these session ales brewed with various fruits and spices.

  • Napoleon Complex IPA

    Just like the French leader, small doesn’t mean weak. This 4.5% sessionable IPA is big on flavor; dry hopped with Amarillo, El Dorado, Chinook and Columbus hops. If you crave hops then this beer is for you!

  • Gluten FREEk DIPA

    Gluten FREEk is Asheville’s first gluten reduced beer. Crafted for those with a gluten intolerance who are sick of drinking beer that doesn’t taste like beer, FREEk was brewed with loads of hops and a similar grain bill to Freak of Nature DIPA. This ale is designed to be big, hoppy, and uniquely Wicked Weed. Gluten FREEk contains less than 10 ppm of gluten.

  • Contingency Plan

    The use of cardamom in this pale ale lends a strong spicy, herbal and citrusy aroma. The aroma complements an earthy, piney and floral flavor from the use of Simcoe and Ahtanun hops. If your day seems to be deviating from your original plan, this refreshing beer is sure to get you back on track.

  • Run Club Rye Pale Ale

    Brewed for the Wicked Weed Run Club in association with Asheville Running Company, this rye pale ale exudes dank and fruity hop aromas and flavors with a smooth, refreshing finish. You’ll be running your personal best to get to this beer!

  • Nolte Blueberry Chipotle Stout

    At first glance, this may seem like an ordinary stout. However, once you discover the strong blueberry aroma, you will realize that this beer is far from ordinary. The subtle smoky chipotle notes and blueberry character add a complexity to the classic stout flavor profile creating a unique and delicious beer.

  • Passionfruit DIPA

    Hoppy beer is kind of our thing. We love it. We also love to make fruit beers. Bring those two together and you get one beast of a Wicked Weed beer. This huge Double IPA is brewed with loads of passion fruit puree along with Citra, Mosaic and Centennial hops.

  • Empress Hoeydew Tripel

    Made with 135 pounds of fresh honeydew melons, this beer is as unique as they come. The refreshing melon notes meld perfectly with the spicy and fruity aromas of Belgian yeast. Light gold in color, Empress is a great pairing with our seared tuna appetizer.

  • XLVI Salted Chocolate Black Saison

    A black saison base achieves roasty malt characteristics and fruity ester aromas in this beer. The addition of cocoa husk, sea salt and chocolate lends to a full bodied, rich beer reminiscent of a delectable dessert.

  • 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.

  • Black Angel Cherry Sour

    Black Angel Cherry Sour is our flagship sour. This sour black ale is brewed with over one and a half pounds of sweet and tart cherries per barrel and is then aged with souring bacteria in. This ale is always a blend of our best tasting barrels all of which originate from the Kentucky Bourbon Trail.

  • 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.

  • French 75

    Inspired by the classic gin and champagne cocktail, this Cardinal Gin barrel aged beer is made with loads of prosecco, chardonnay grape must and juniper berries.
