While driving into town, this and the Thirsty Monk were the first two places we came to. Managing a Public House last year (2011), this was a "must-visit".

Walking in, it was very dark and lit almost like the average "speak easy" lounge. Lined with Christmas lights around every wooded wall and terrace, these were the main lights except for spotlights on the stage. Had a homely feel to it and very inviting. There was a jam session that night and bluegrass wasn't all that bad to listen to!

With only having 2 bartenders, these guys worked extremely tough at getting drinks out and caring for each customer. One of the bartenders actually looked like Jack of the Wood (or the Green Man from Green Man Ales). Funny.

From what was listed, they had a decent selection on-tap with a ton of locals but then didn't offer much in bottle/can... Was a bit disappointed but only stayed for one brew so enjoyed the Old Victory Barleywine. Single malt scotches and many other limited bourbons were available also.

I suggest you check out their music calendar and come later at night! This place was very cultured and had great vibes coming from the street.

Originally the home of Green Man Brewing, this is now a gastropub that features Green Man beers, as well as other craft brews on rotating taps. This place has a great feel; dark and cool, with music playing low, and lots of wood and stone throughout. One of my favorite bar atmospheres of all-time! The staff was great; very helpful and very prompt. There were 4 Green Man beers on tap, as well as an additional 8 from other breweries around the country. They have food, but we weren't eating on this trip. The calendar seems like there are constantly events and live music going on. Awesome place to stop, and right in the middle of any beer tours you may want to do in Asheville.

stopped in here after visiting Thirsty Monk its across the street it was low lit with a hippie vibe and lots of wood it was late afternoon so no band was playing several local and guest taps along with green man we had the IPA and it was very good more hoppy than malt tasty and tropical we did not stay long and had nothing to eat but the food looked good but just standard pub food worth a visit but green man brews are on tap elsewhere as are there guest taps just an OK place IMO

I had been told at work this was a great place to go to. At the B&B we were staying another couple said they had a great time listening to music the night before. We were downtown in the afternoon and stopped by for a beer at 2:58 PM. The sign on the door said it opens at 3PM and there were apparent patrons walking around inside. I stuck my head in the door and heard someone ask the bartender what time they open and he curtly said 3PM. He was asked what time is it and walking away said over his shoulder, he didn't care. With that all of us walked out and basically thought this place should have been named "Jack Off in the Woods". This was on Memorial Day
