We came very close to missing this great place on our trip to Asheville. With so many places to try it can be overwhelming. Do yourself a favor, and go here. If turned out to be our favorite tasting room for atmosphere, and vibe. The bartender was great and even though it was quite busy, made time for conversation. Also met the owner who was very friendly and welcoming.

They have a big garage door that was open during our visit, as well as an outdoor patio area. We were lucky enough to have seats open up at the bar right after we arrived.

We enjoyed the IPA, Pale Ale, and Rainmaker IIPA. All were excellent.

Call the tasting room to see if they are open early. We would have liked to know that before our trip, as the 4pm opening time is what held us back to start with. So glad we fit it in on our last day. We liked it so much we did not want to leave.

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!

Cool, rustic vibe to this place. An open bay door leads you into an L-shaped bar, with lots of industrial and rustic decorations. The brewing equipment is all viewable as soon as you walk in, just to the left of the bar. There are 8+ beers on tap at any given time, and there are growlers for beer to go. The bartenders were very friendly and helpful. This place is right in the middle of Asheville, within walking distance of a dozen other breweries, and should be a stop for any beer fan.

Asheville is smothered (covered and chunked) with breweries. As an avid brewer, currently working towards brewing commercially, I've got a massive soft spot for the smaller guys. Sure, Green Man has been around a while now - they're certainly not the new kids on the block - still, their space just calls my name. I'm a big fan of tap rooms that sit in the middle of a functioning brewery. The working parts of this brewery aren't behind a big sheet of glass, they're right there beside you. You're enjoying a draft pour while sitting in the guts of the beast responsible for creating it. That's just cool. This is a great little space - small/interesting bar with a nice selection of flavors. Helpful servers too. You're also within blocks of a lot of other breweries. Love the space - check 'em out.
