My third time visiting this establishment the first time since the cap was popped.This place always seems to be bustling with people outside at the tables and benches and for the most part the bar is usually full except maybe for the middle of the afternoon.Quite a crowd you can get at times here hippies and eccentrics but very friendly and willing to help giving information about Asheville.The selection of beer available was the best this time than at any other visit I have had,the Green Man beer available at the brewpub were a doppelbock,pilsner,Belgian Dragon,IPA,and porter with a French Broad Wee Heavy-er,and New South Lager and a few domestics.Although the bar was not completely packed when in the Saturday afternoon it took a little while to get our beer at the bar I had to wave the bartender over.On Friday night we found a table in the back away from that wretched blue grass playing band but had better service than the day after.I like this place alot the beers are good the IPA is damn good and the different mix of people makes it even more enjoyable.

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
