The bartender is always there for them, their reliable companion who deliberately crafts the perfect cocktail with every dash of bitters and teaspoon of simple syrup. It’s this spirit of precision and passion for the craft that has led to their Old Fashioned Ale. This cocktail-inspired beer is gently aged in fresh bourbon barrels with Montmorency and Black cherries, and finished with fresh orange zest, all painstakingly measured and mixed in the spirit of camaraderie. Muddle your cherries, but not your time.
Located in West Asheville, the most recent Wicked Weed addition is this 50 barrel Production Brewery responsible for brewing and distributing their fresh beer offerings such as Freak of Nature Double IPA and Pernicious IPA. Christened in July 2015, the Production Brewery is their answer to the Southeast’s call for more of Wicked Weed’s beer. Currently, their focus is brewing and packaging their fresh beer to send to North Carolina and surrounding markets with future plans to expand the facility to include tours and a tasting room.
