Wicked Weed Brewery & Restaurant

 

Asheville, North Carolina

 

ADAPTIVE RE-USE

  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 fa├žade, 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.
