Wicked Weed Brewery & Restaurant
Asheville, North Carolina
Contributing Historic Structure, City of Asheville
The existing one story building was built as the Gulf Pride Service Station in 1941. With rounded corners and edges, projecting central pavilion, a porthole window, curved glass block, and a three part molded band on the upper façade, the building is a fine example of the Art Moderne style. The building was renovated and converted into a restaurant on the street level with a brewery on the lower level. A one story addition to the north of the existing building to house toilet rooms and a portion of the kitchen was constructed. The existing parking lot was converted into a lushly planted beer garden.
