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.

The Dirty Jacks Bar I believe its called, or Green Man Brewery is a cool little place. Comfortable, you can also try some of their new stuff or stuff that just doesn't make it to bottling, at least that is my perspective. We were there this summer and so we sat outside, but the inside looks like a cool place to hangout on those cooler less forgiving days you get in the Southern Appalachian Highlands. Asheville has a cool vibe overall but this is one of the better bars, kind of off the beaten path of downtown. I enjoyed it and will go back when I return to Asheville.
