The brewery that won the People’s Choice award at Brewgrass 2012 finally has a place to rest its hops. The brewpub plans to open on Friday, Dec. 28 with as many as 14 of its beers on tap, including Freak Imperial IPA, one of the crowd favorites from Brewgrass.

In addition to the brewery, the two-story converted auto-garage (and former site of Asheville Hardware) houses a restaurant. Expect approachable fare, such as burgers, sandwiches, salads and fish and chips.

Pick up the Jan. 2 issue of Xpress for more on the brewery and restaurant, or check it out for yourself. Wicked Weed is located at 91 Biltmore Ave. next to the Orange Peel. It’s scheduled to open at 5 p.m. on Dec. 28. For more information, visit or check out the brewpub’s Facebook page.
