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.

  • Shoeless Joe Porter

    This brown porter was inspired by a crazy cocktail our head brewer Luke recently stumbled on. Brewed with cherries, espresso, and cola this is a one of a kind dark beer you won’t forget.

  • English Bitter

    This classic English Bitter is brewed using all English ingredients. Crafted with yeast Walt and Luke brought back from the UK, this ale incorporates Marris Otter malt for an iconic biscuity character. Goldings hops adds just the right amount of bitterness to round out this traditional English Bitter.

  • 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 Gesho root and black cardamom. This lovely ale celebrates the vibrancy and brilliance of the Continent Mata mata!

  • 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.

  • Tyranny Hoppy Red Ale

    This ale is a nod to the Northwestern states with its dank evergreen and grapefruit aroma. 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.

  • 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.

  • Decoy Red Ale

    This red ale is hit with a 21pound blend of Cascade, Centennial, and Chinook hops in the whirlpool, which is where beer receives most of its flavor and aroma structure. No dry hop here, but still expect loads of awesome hop flavor complimenting the malty rich flavors of caramel malts.

  • Pick Me! Pale Ale: Walt's Pick

    Pick Me! is our Brewer’s choice pale ale series. This batch was crafted by our Head Blender, Walt with a floral and herbal hop character. Brewed with Everards English yeast, East Kent Goldings, Hersbrucker and Pearl hops, this makes for a traditional English Pale Ale.

  • 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!

  • Conquistador

    This brew is one of many that takes its inspiration from the rich tradition of spirits. In this case, the muse of Mezcal Tequila lead us to brew with smoked malts, lime juice, and grapefruit zest all of which culminate in complex and drinkable cocktail ale.

  • 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 10ppm of gluten.

  • Melisseus Honey Lavender Ale

    Named after the “Honey-Man” in Greek Mythology, this beer was brewed with four pounds of honey per barrel. This session-able honey ale was then infused with fresh lavender flowers to produce a wonderful bouquet of aroma and flavor. Honey, you won’t BEE-lieve how much you’ll love it!

  • Lil' Heresy Brown Ale

    This beer is a little brother to a crowd favorite brewed here at Wicked Weed. Lil’ Heresy Brown is a session-able summertime brown ale. This time, we added a twist by using English yeast. We back loaded this beer with hops to make for a refreshingly hoppy pint of beer.

  • XLIII Arbor Vitae

    This blonde saison’s name means “Tree of Life”. Cedar berries give a slight sweetness balanced by the herbal character of Holy Basil and Hyssop. These “holy” ingredients might leave you praying for a second pint.

  • Relenting & Dubbeled

    The Belgian Dubbel style is known for its soft dried fruit characteristics of dates and plum. We paired these flavors with a healthy dose of German hops to round out this beer with a perfect balance for the Belgian beer lover.

  • 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.

  • Bless Her Heart

    Bless Her Heart is a sour inspired by the Southern love of peach iced tea. A blend of Brett and sour stock barrels, we added 440 pounds of peaches with lemon, ginger, and imported black tea from Dobra Tea House to create a flavor reminiscent of warm days gone and yet to come.

  • XL Whiskey Barrel-Aged Peppercorn Saison

    For our fortieth saison we wanted to brew a special barrel-aged offering. This deep, dark black saison was whiskey barrel-aged for four months during which time it received green and black peppercorns. Spicy with round notes of whiskey sweetness, Saison XL makes the perfect night cap for the crisp spring nights.

  • 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.
