In 2009 Walt and Luke Dickinson sat at a craft beer bar and talked about the dream of opening their own brewery focusing on big, West Coast hoppy ales and authentic Belgian ales brewed to inspire those who drank them. There would be no looking back. Over the next two years, a preliminary business plan was developed and test batches were brewed.
In 2011 Walt and Luke’s lifelong friend Ryan Guthy and his parents Rick and Denise all sat down at the Guthy’s house in the mountains of Western North Carolina to taste Luke and Walt’s creations while discussing ideas and strategies for what would become Wicked Weed Brewing. After discussing and weeks of thoughtful research and soul searching the Guthys joined the Dickinsons.
Wicked Weed Brewing found a home at 91 Biltmore Avenue, a building that seemed destined for a brewery. So from the humble beginning of a hardware store basement, the dream of the brewery came to life.
We are focused on drinkability and boundary pushing recipes tempered only by quality of craft. Wicked Weed Brewing will always evolve, always grow, and always aspire to be better.
