after a slide down an icy Church Street and a right on Buxton, we found Green Man/Dirty Jack's in an unassuming little garage-doored building just a few blocks from the main drag
the brewery has been outfitted to double as a pub, with a feel much like a friends basement or garage, British news was playing on one tv with soccer on another, and associated sports paraphernalia hanging about, a couple dartboards round things out - the chill patronage and comfortable atmosphere make this an ideal spot to spend some part of a winter night
selection was okay - 5 taps with a cask that had just run out, selections included ipa, porter, bitter, and pale
tough one - the chap seemed genuinely friendly, providing extra mustards for our complimentary pretzels and small talk about the icy conditions, but being so curtly denied a sample in such a way that makes one feel ashamed for even asking is a huge failure of basic service, let me elaborate - we first shared a couple samples and each ordered a pint, while attempting to choose a second pint we shared another sample and didn't like it so requested another, at which point we were told that "you can't sample everything we have" - fair enough, we'll be on our way
no food menu, but pretzels and a selection of homemade mustards for dipping were provided

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.
