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. I 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.

  • Lupulin Lab 05256

    Lupulin Lab is our single hop IPA series. This beer features the experimental hop #05256. With loads of character this hop shows promise to become a ʺnamedʺ hop in the near future. Look for notes of earthy herb and light, tropical fruits

  • 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.

  • Heresy Brown Ale

    At 6.9% abv this is a dangerously drinkable beer (in a good way). 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. Delish!

  • Sir Ryan the Pounder

    This 4.7% ale is Wicked Weed’s first session beer, and we couldn’t be more excited about it. We wanted to create a low alcohol, easy drinking beer that is not lacking in flavor. Enter, Sir Ryan the Pounder. This ale is light amber in color, has soft caramel and toffee notes and is dry hopped with an array of citrus-forward hops.

  • Hop Burglar IPA

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

  • Infidel Porter

    Porters were born in London and dubbed the working man’s ale. At 6.7% this ale gets loads of chocolate malt and wheat malt to build a rich chocolate flavor and silky smooth mouthfeel. Dark and balanced, this beer is a great pairing for a burger or steak.

  • 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 beer. We highly recommend sharing a pitcher of this beer with a friend.

  • Day Walker

    This sunshine orange colored ale was brewed with 12 pounds of crystalized and fresh ginger. The addition of ginger adds a bright, refreshing quality and a great transitional beer from winter into spring.

  • Reticent Saison

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

  • Sovereign Belgian Stout

    Cocoa in color with a thick, mocha head, Sovereign Stout weights in at a reasonable 6.1% abv and has a generous body. With notes of raisin and leather, this bold Belgian boasts a perfect balance of dry roast and dark chocolate flavors. A champagne-like carbonation melts into a beautiful balance of fruit esters and mild earthy tones on the finish. Assertive yet reasonable, Sovereign Stout is everything a true ruler should be and may have you bending a knee to its wonderful flavor.

  • XXV Hopped Up Saison

    This Saison is a marriage of Belgian subtlety and big American style hopping. We dry hopped this saison with Centennial El dorado and Pacific Gem hops creating a spicy and floral hop flavor.

  • Bedeviled Golden Strong

    This classic Belgian golden strong ale clocks in at 8.4% abv. Gold in color and rich with spicy clove and bright fruit aromas, this ale is perfect for warm nights.

  • Cardinal Sin Red

    Pouring Utah desert red, this Belgian ale was dry hopped with Styrian Golding hops which give a mandarin orange aroma to the spicy Belgian yeast. Flavors of cotton candy round out a balanced bready malt character.

  • V Saison

    This is our second time making V, and even though last years was so delicious, we decided to step up the flavor. We used over 160 pounds of raspberries and loads of local French Broad Chocolate Lounge cocoa nibs. Black in color, this one beautiful beer.

  • 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 tend to change every sip you take, from melon to pine, orange peel to lemon zest, this is a lovely drink.

  • Sauvage Wine Barrel Saison

    This saison was brewed to mimic Sauvignon Blanc wine. We brewed it with Nelson Sauvin hops which are grown in New Zealand and showcase grapefruit peel and grapy aromas, then aged the beer in Sauvignon Blanc wine barrels for 2 months.

  • Black Angel

    This is our third release of Black Angel Cherry Sour. This sour black ale is brewed with over one pound of tart cherries per barrel. It is then aged with souring bacterium in fresh bourbon barrels. This batch is a blend of 4, 8, and 12 month old barrels of Black Angel.

  • 1st Anniversary Barleywine

    In celebration of our 1st Anniversary we wanted to make a beer that had Wicked Weed written all over it. This American Barleywine was aged in Angels Envy Bourbon Barrels for two months and boasts aromas of papaya, sweet orange, and vanilla bean. Thank you for making our first year so awesome, we hope you enjoy this very special ale.

  • Devilwood

    At Wicked Weed we have over 300 wine, bourbon and rum barrels full of aging beer. After brewing this 9.7% abv, authentically Belgian ale we felt it needed an American touch so we aged the beer in Kentucky Bourbon barrels for four months. This created a confluence of big American flavor and silky smooth Belgian aromas.

  • Reverence

    This beer is made in reverence of Orval trappist ale. Brewed as a Belgian pale ale, then finished with Brettanomyces and aged in Cabernet barrels for 6 months. After the aging, we blended the beer and dry-hopped it with traditional Belgian hops to accentuate the floral character of the beer.

  • Le Peche Blanc

    This Brettanomyces finished saison was brewed with peaches and apricots. After 8 months in wine barrels this beer is boasting huge complexity and a refreshing tart finish.

  • Divergence

    This brettanomyces porter is made with dry fermented Ethiopian coffee from Mountain Air roasters. Although there is no fruit in this beer, there are amazing flavors of cherry and dark berries that meld seamlessly together with flavors of bourbon from the wood barrels.

  • Dark Age Bourbon Stout

    Few things pair together better than bourbon and beer. This imperial stout spends upwards of 6 months soaking up rich flavors of bourbon aging in oak barrels. With huge chocolate flavors playing together with awesome bourbon character and a warming finish, this beer is a great night capper.

  • Vigilance

    This 100% brettanomyces fermented ale is brewed with Pineapple and Guava then aged in white wine barrels. A soft tartness makes this a complex all day drinker.
