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.

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.

I like the place even though it is kind of kitschy and a hole in the wall. They have darts at least. The selection is a decent amount. I'm not a fan of the regular rotation stuff, but they make some killer seasonals and specials (Rainmaker, Demon Dweller, Maceo, Snozzberry, etc.). The staff has always been cool. I've never had a bad time here.

The taproom is pretty small and still has a garage atmosphere highlighted by a lot of beer stickers and goofy signs giving it a 1960's dorm room ambiance. Outside seating in a covered area seemed a better choice and is dog friendly. Beer selection was pretty good along with its quality. Staff was helpful and offered samples without seeming to be put upon by a request for one.
