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.

  • Mompara Honey Ale

    Inspired by the traditional African honey wine T’ej, this beer is made with over 300 pounds of wild flower and orange blossom honey and spiced with black cardamom. Gold Medal winner in Specialty Honey Ale at the 2014 Great American Beer Festival, this unique ale perfectly represents our love for boundary pushing brews.

  • Ruffian Black IPA

    Hopheads and dark beer lovers alike, this ale is for you. This 9% abv beast of a beer is black as night and dry hopped like a double IPA. Although dark and full-bodied, this beer lacks the astringent bitterness you would find in a roasty stout.

  • 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.

  • Berry Pi'd

    The second of our pi’d series, this 3.14% abv session ale boasts a coral red hue and a berry blast aroma. Brewed with tons of strawberries, blackberries, and raspberries, this ale is just what you need to get through those hot summer days.

  • 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.

  • Pernicious IPA

    Pernicious is our flagship India Pale Ale. This massively dry-hopped ale has minimum malt complexity and a combination of juicy, tropical fruit-forward hops with heavy resinous American hops. Pernicious is the epitome of a West Coast IPA, made right here in the Southeast.

  • Tabernacle Crush

    Tabernacle crush, the cocktail that inspired this beer, is a refreshing blend of Sauvignon blanc, gin and southern peaches. This slightly sweet beer brings all those flavors to life with its effervescent mouthfeel and fruit-forward palate.

  • Tyranny Red IPA

    This ale is a nod to the Northwestern states. Tyranny is a robust, sunset red colored ale with a dank evergreen and grapefruit aroma. Flavors of toffee, caramel and sugar cane bring a sweetness to the hop flavor that is hard to achieve.

  • Tropic Most Gose

    Pronounced “GOH-zuh”, this style of beer is traditionally brewed with the heavy use of wheat and spiced with salt and coriander. The second rendition of our ‘Most Gose’ series incorporates these traditional ingredients with the addition of passionfruit for a fruity aroma and refreshingly salty finish.

  • Pallino Belgian Wit

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

  • XLVII Pineapple Guava Saison

    For our 47th saison, we combined the flavors of tropical fruits with our saison yeast to produce a spicy, fruit-forward summer saison. One sip will have you dreaming of Mai Tais on the beach in Hawaii.

  • 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.

  • Serenity

    Serenity is Brettanomyces in its purest form. This tart farmhouse ale is aged in wine barrels 3-5 months and is then blended and aged in the bottle until perfect for release.

  • Bretticent

    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 and bottled. Drink it fresh, or let it age and bring out the funk.

  • Succession

    Succession is a golden ale born of collaboration between Biltmore Estate riesling yeast and Wicked Weed mixed house culture. Aged in Biltmore white wine barrels with 25% riesling grape must, this sour ale celebrates the time-honored traditions for handcrafting both estate wine and craft beer.
