Green Man is tucked away a few blocks southish from Jack of the Wood and the Monk. 8-10 seats at a bar with the beers clearly listed with prices for pints, growlers and pitchers. A few tables next to the tanks..I love this about Asheville, the intimacy at the the tasting rooms. This one is right there with French Broad for having the most 'close quarters' tasting rooms in town, as you are truly right-the-fuck next to the tanks and kettles. I love smelling a mash while I'm drinking a beer more than (almost) anything.

The beer is always very, very fresh here. More so than the pub, and the selection can be better here as well. Not that the pubs beer isn't nice and fresh, but at the brewery it's just sublime.

The bartenders know the beers and tend to be relatively attentive and do there job well.

No food here, but their pub up the street has a menu.

Beers are normally priced for the city, and growlers are a buck or two cheaper than many others here. I was told that a keg of pale would normally be around $85, but that they weren't filling any kegs at the time). I have to assume that's for a 1/4 barrel, because the going rate for a 1/6 of Asheville pale is like low $60's, and this is one of the cheaper brewhouses. So that ain't bad.

Green Man is a small brewery on a small side street in Asheville. This place is housed in an old, small warehouse. A standard door and overhead door are your two ways in and out. A small bar seats probably 12 while a counter runs along the windows with some stools below and a couple hightops here and there. The space is small and overlooking it is the petite brewery. A nice, covered, dog friendly patio sits out back and is loaded up with seating options for such a small space.

The taplist was impressive to say the least but let me first say that all kinds of weird shit is tucked away in nooks and crannies, looking at you while you drink; Yoda, green men, just weird shit. 12-15 handles were available, all house beer. The Gose and XIPA were both fantastic beers and two of the best I had in all of Asheville. Prices were insanely cheap and growlers were available.

Green Man seemed like more of the locals hangout. They didn't seem to want to deal with the madness that is Wicked Weed. It's very laidback and friendly, a great place to have a beer and easily my favorite place, that I visited, while in the "Land of the Sky". Get to Green Man!
