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.

Jack of the Wood (serves Green Man) is one of the bars that is a must stop for me on any road trip. I really enjoy their IPA (especially from the cask). As far as the atmosphere goes it's similar to any good Americanized Irish Pub. It can get quite lively in there on the weekends with bands playing. There is some good choices on the menu but the beer is what I will travel out of the way for. Aside from the restaurant there is the bar that is a hole in the wall across town called the Tasting room. My wife and I go there to get away from crowds and to simply enjoy the beer. Since going to the Tasting Room of Green Man Brewery, I only go to the tasting room (unless it's closed in which case I'll head up to Jack of the Wood).

Green Man, best beer in NC hands down.

This place is a must visit on your Asheville brewery tour. I highly recommend the IPA and Rainmaker double IPA.The prices are very reasonable and they fill the growlers onsite for $10.00 and $20.00 for the Double IPA.The atmosphere was awesome and the staff friendly and very informative regarding the brews.They also serve pretzels with some of the best beer mustard I have ever tasted.They also sell containers of the mustard to go as well as T shirts and beer glasses.

My favorite brewery in Asheville by far.
