This local guide has everything that you need to plan the ultimate craft beer excursion, including dozens of tasty breweries and farm-to-table-restaurants!
Tips for Spending a Day at Wedge Brewing Company
Wedge Brewing Company has two distinct locations, Wedge at Foundation and Wedge at Wedge Studios. Both locations offer classic, yet extensive menus that change with the season. You will find that both the Foundation menu and the Studio menu are filled with pale ales, cream ales, hoppy IPAs, fruity beers, and even dry apple ciders. Because this is not a distribution brewery, you won’t find Wedge beer anywhere else. Make the most of your trip and get a proper taste by ordering a flight!
There is always something fantastic cooking at Wedge Foundation and Wedge Studios. You will find New Orleans-style comfort food, scrumptious pizza pies, grilled cheese sandwiches, authentic Mexican cuisine, and even farm-to-table eats. A different Asheville food truck is on the menu every day! Frequent visitors include Olive Catering Company, Root Down, and El Querubin.
Explore the Arts District
Both Wedge Studios and Wedge at Foundation are located in the heart of Asheville’s River Arts District. You will find hundreds of distinct artists here, which puts Wedge Brewing Company in a unique position. Discover an extensive range of artwork, including paint, pencil, pottery, metal, glass, and more. After a long day of exploring the River Arts District, visit Wedge Brewing Company for the perfect compliment to your eclectic day. Continue your artistic journey with live music, an independent film, and, of course, an artisan craft beer.
- Film screenings are offered every Monday at Foundation. Live music is offered on Thursdays at Foundation and on Saturdays at Wedge Studio.
- Both Foundation and Studio are family-friendly and dog-friendly. However, children are not permitted after 8:00 p.m.
- Plan the perfect visit by checking Wedge Brewing Company’s website for events, live music, films, and food trucks.
