I was visiting from out of state and was VERY happy to see such a good and wide variety of sour beers offered here. Coming from Colorado being a craft brewery juggernaut, it's hard to have good expectations elsewhere. I truly liked the Framboos Morte...and the Sandiaca but any of the sours here were great!More

Visited here as my spouse was looking forward to checking this place out. Stunning decor using barrel parts as decor and in the railings. Nice outdoor seating area that has covered and uncovered areas. Bathrooms are very clean. Everything we ordered to eat was superb,...kudos for the best BLT sandwich I ever had and superior fries. We brought our kid, who was not fond of the pretzel (possibly rye based grain), but we though it was wonderful. The beer flight was well received as was the cucumber margarita. Highly recommend.More

My friend loves sours. And this is her holy land. Amazing selection of sour beers with great flights but they also have liquor cocktails if you’re not a beer drinker. Adam was awesome and served us a taste of a special new brew but the...entire staff was knowledgeable (check out the spontaneous fermented!!)More

I'm not a big beer person, so there was not much on the menu here for me, but I did have a kolsch from on tap. There is also a full bar and wine if you visit with a non-beer drinker. We ate lunch here...too. I had the cauliflower sandwich, which beer battered cauliflower on a burger bun, which was delicious. The fries were very good too. Service very friendly. The space is enormous so good for large parties tooMore

My husband and I stopped by Wicked Weed's Funkatorium on a Wednesday afternoon to try their sours. We were able to get free street parking right across from the brewery and were able to get seated at a table inside right away. We got flights...#4 and #5 and enjoyed trying all of the different beers. Our waitress was super helpful and continually refilled the waters we gulped down. We really liked the option to Apple Pay via a QR code! We stopped by the bottle shop on the way out to get two bottles to take home. We would definitely stop by here again once in Asheville!More

NOT IMPRESSED. We visited with our children and they looked at us like we completely inconvenienced them. The hostess with mid length blonde hair was absolutely rude and should not be working in the restaurant business as she has ZERO people skills. Our waitress was...nice, but could not answer any questions about the menu. We will not be back as there are many other breweries that completely topped this place.More

This was our second visit here in the same day; while we ventured around to see where all the eateries were in South Slope, we didn’t see many close by without a considerable wait. Since we had enjoyed our beer flights earlier in the day,...we decided to venture back here. While my friend had a spicy chicken sandwich, I tried a bratwurst and chips, with both being good.More

My husband loves sour beer, so he was at home here. He was actually a little overwhelmed by all the choices. A good thing. I tried their wine, which was just okay.

The area is loaded wth local micro-brews so getting a growler filled should not be a problem. Maybe just not the Funkatorium.
