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.

my least favorite of the asheville breweries i visited. i understand that green man may be the oldest in town, but that history/legacy isn't well presented. in visiting the brewery, it kinda felt like i was at bad fraternity party at a division II university. when i asked for a flight, i was told they weren't even serving in pint glasses & offered a beer in a plastic cup. yes, it was world cup. no, it was not that crowded. seriously, there were more empty tables/chairs than ppl. service was uninterested & disengaged. place seemed to need a good cleaning.

chill vibe. tiki feel outside on the side patio. not necessary all that comfortable in the carolina heat. food trucks are available.

beers are good, solid. maybe i visited on a really off day. i would have been just fine picking up some bottles at the bottle shop.
