Asheville Insider Tip: Wicked Weed Brewing Has Amazing Barrel-Aged Brews. One of Asheville's newest breweries has quickly become one of the most popular. Wicked Weed Brewing, located in downtown Asheville, crafts American-style brews that are dry and hoppy, plus authentic Belgians with a smooth finish.
Worth the Wait
Some of Wicked Weed's most unique brews are the product of a barrel-aging process. Using barrels that once stored other spirits Wicked Weed adds their brew and lets it sit for at least three months. The final product is a beer with more depth and flavor. No other process gives the beer this effect.
Try a Taste
Sample the Wild Abbey, a Belgian brew aged for three months in Sangiovese wine barrels with Brettanomyces and Lactobacillus which bring a tart and wild flavor to this beer.
