Wicked Weed Brewing began with two brothers, Luke and Walt Dickinson. They took their love of beer to the next level, powerfully inspired by the Belgian ales and hoppy brews of the Pacific Northwest. In 2011, they joined with lifelong friend Ryan Guthy and his family, hammered out (pun intended) a business plan and moved into a former hardware store that would soon become a beloved destination for locals and tourists alike.
Asheville, North Carolina, home to hippies and hipsters galore, is a fitting location for a craft brewery as eccentric as Wicked Weed. Their offerings range from the fun to the fantastic. For example, their Montemaretto is fermented with almonds and cherries. Wicked Weed Milk & Cookies is pretty self-explanatory. French Toast Imperial Stout is as mouthwatering as it sounds. From figs to grapefruit to cucumber, there's almost nothing that doesn't inspire the brewmasters at Wicked Weed.
Though Wicked Weed was acquired by Anheuser-Busch in 2017, joining the ranks of craft breweries such as Devils Backbone, Elysian Brewing and Goose Island, they can hardly be labeled as sell-outs. Wicked Weed retained complete creative control over their potions and continues to innovate, constantly redefining the word "beer." With Wicked Weed, the sky is truly the limit.
