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.

  • Gluten FREEk

    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 10ppm of gluten.

  • Chinook Me All Night Long

    Once a year our good friend Cliff Williams from ACDC puts on his brewing boots and joins us for a collaborative beer. This year, we brewed a hopped up red ale using 100% Chinook hops which showcase a ton of red grapefruit and spicy ginger notes, pair those flavors with a balance of smooth caramel malts and you have one rockin’ beer.

  • Pick Me! Pale Ale: Marco's Pick

    The second selection from our pale ale series comes from Brewer Marco who blended Citra, Cascade, and a touch of Chinook to achieve this citrus forward pale with a slight pine finish.

  • Hop Burglar IPA

    Brewed with blood orange purée and fresh grapefruit zest, this beer is unlike any other. The richness of blood oranges pairs perfectly with the tart flavor of grapefruit and hops. We dry hopped this beer with Citra and other top secret hops. Why the name Hop Burglar? Level 5 clearance required for this information

  • India Blue IPA

    When you think of IPAs, you probably think of big citrus and tropical fruit aromas with layered pine and earth notes. We thought we would throw a curve ball in this beer with the soft, rounded flavor of blueberries. We used 88 pounds of blueberries and two New Zealand hops called Pacific Gem and Pacific Jade to create this one of a kind IPA.

  • Nitro Tap: English Infidel

    The third beer in our English series and the first ever beer for our new nitro tap, this version of Infidel porter is a proper English style porter and a true reflection of the malty Everards Brewery yeast. Cheers to old traditions and new taps.

  • Heresy Brown Ale

    At 6.8% abv this is a wonderfully drinkable beer. The color is milk chocolate brown with a red hue. We use a considerable amount of chocolate and crystal malts to give this beer a rich malt flavor and we add a generous amount of American hops to give Heresy a Wicked punch. This ale is dry hopped, which is not traditional for this style, but we think it makes it downright tasty! This is the best pairing on our beer list for a burger.

  • Tyrant Double Red

    The big brother of our Tyranny Red Ale, this heavily dry-hopped ale is a delicious creation. Tyrant is full of malt rich flavors backed up with deep pine, herb and grapefruit peel aromas, all around a hop heads dream. This is a big, bad beer that drinks a little too easy for the 8.8% abv. Pair with fish n’ chips and attitude.

  • Ruffian Black IPA

    Hopheads and dark beer lovers alike, this ale is for you. This 10% abv beast of a beer is black as night and dry hopped like a double IPA. We use de-husked black malt to achieve a dark color without the astringent flavors occasionally found in stouts.

  • Bellini Golden Ale

    One of our core values is taking care of our people, and we are beyond lucky to have a staff of passionate, Invested, creative individuals. Our desire to tap into this and connect through beer gave life to a friendly staff competition to dream up a new beer. Bethany Wright, our downstairs bartender, won this go around with her idea for a peach Bellini ale. To recreate this lovely cocktail we used over 100 pounds of peaches, fresh lemon zest, and Prosecco wine grape must. The result is a refreshing and complex drink that will appease the cocktail, wine, and beer drinker alike.

  • People's Choice Pale

    This dry hopped ale was our first-ever pale ale when we opened our doors in 2012. Brewed the day of the Presidential elections (hence the name) its slightly cloudy orange color and pleasant citrus aroma is backed with a balance of pine and rounded out with wheat malt that lends a silky mouthfeel.

  • Porch Crawler

    Porch Crawler is a wonderful cool weather offering from our cocktail series of beers. Inspired by the classic Charleston punch that blends beer and spirits. Brewed with 352 pounds of cherries and raspberries, and finished with Serrano peppers this cocktail is fruit forward with a balanced touch of spice.

  • Lupulin Lab: El Dorado

    Lupulin Lab IPA is our single hopped IPA series. This time we used a newer hop variety called El Dorado. These hops find their origin in the Moxee Valley in Washington state and exhibit huge character. El Dorado showcases a balance of resin, spruce and stone fruit flavors of plum and pear.

  • 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. Reticence is brewed with oats (giving a silky mouthfeel) rye (adding a slight spicy character) and all noble hops, making this an extremely authentic saison.

  • XXXVI Saison

    Time flies; a fact that we are acutely aware of as we release our 36th saison. Brewed with Pacific Gem and Jaryllo hops, this session saison is a return to the rustic roots of the style we love and respect. Clean and crisp with light notes of white pepper and complimenting hops, this brew reminds us why we began this series and why it continues.

  • Mosaic Saison

    Mosaic hops got their name because they tend to showcase an array of flavors depending on the beer they go into. In this saison, the hop flavors change every sip you take, from melon to pine, orange peel to lemon zest, this is one lovely ale.

  • Black Currant Dubbel

    Currants are one of those fruits often left behind in the berry world. In the beer world, however, they make a wonderful compliment to Belgian ales. We brewed this Dubbel with 88 pounds of black currants yielding aromas of rich dried fruit with flavors of bright, tart berries to follow.

  • Apple Harvest Blonde

    The changing of seasons is a passage that we look forward to in our brewery. As fall begins to wake itself we reach for local ingredients that speak to the ever-crispening air. This traditional Belgian blonde was open fermented with 40 gallons of fresh pressed, cider from a local orchard. Dry and slightly tart, this ale is like biting into the first fruits of fall.

  • La Bonté

    La bonté means “the goodness” and is our pursuit as much in our beers as it is in our lives. This tart, farmhouse ale was inundated with 160 pounds of apricots and drinks good and easy.

  • Black Angel Cherry Sour

    Black Angel Cherry Sour is our flagship sour. This sour black ale is brewed with over one pound of sweet and tart cherries per barrel. It is then aged with souring bacteria in bourbon barrels. This sour is always a blend of our best tasting barrels all of which originate from our very first batch, vintage 2012.

  • Lusus Naturae Wild Double IPA

    This ale is a dry, North Carolina Double IPA brewed with Riverbend malt and 30 pounds of fresh-off-the vine Cascade wet hops from a local farm. It was then finished with our house brettanomyces strain. Hoppy up front, with s alight wild finish this ale will get funkier with time.

  • Bretticent Wild Ale

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

  • Amorous Sour IPA

    Amorous is defined as being in love or enamored, and no one could doubt that Wicked Weed is in love with sour and hoppy ales. This beer is a blend of both Brett barrels and sour barrels, dry hopped with a bouquet of American hops to accentuate the tropical and citrusy profile of each bad beer. No ale is more Wicked Weed than Amorous.

  • Blissful Bourbon Aged Tripel

    At Wicked Weed we love pushing the boundaries of what is expected out of beer. So for this Tripel we added vanilla, star anise, and licorice root and then laid it to rest in Bourbon Barrels for 7 months. The result is robust Belgian ale with sweet notes of banana tempered by a rustic and warming bourbon finish.

  • Genesis Blonde Sour

    This ale was our first venture into barrel aged American wild ales. To create this delicious sour, we began with a blonde saison base, which we then fermented with our proprietary Wicked Wild strain of yeast. After fermentation, we added mango, papaya and guava and moved this beer into petite verdot barrels where it aged for a minimum of six months. Genesis is tart and tropical with notes of musty hay and citrus.
