A.K.A. Dirty Jack's is Green Man's brewery bar.

I give high marks on the atmosphere for this place is what YOU make of it. It is NOT fancy by any means, it is a working brewery afterall. But, the bar is charming and the table seating fairly ample and the place allows for mingling, conversation and FUN! Also, there is ALWAYS English football on the tele when we go....keeping things authentic!

Goods marks for the selection too as they always have a solid and varied list of choices to include one of Asheville's only dedicated CASK offerings. During my last visit there was a special Winter Warmer flight set of 4 beers created by the assistant brewer, Mike. See my reviews for the CRAZY (but totally awesome) offerings!

Food--what food? Well, good marks becasue they offer pretzels with some of THE best damn mustard I have ever had the pleasure of eating. You can buy it by the jar if you are so inclined!

Lastly is the service. I am embarrassed that I do not know his name but the English barkeep that seems to ALWAYS be on duty is, without question, THE BEST bartender in all of Asheville. He is quick, efficient, affable and most of all pleasant. This gentleman has it going on!

I always seem to forget how much I enjoy DJ's until the next time I go. It is a must stop while in town.

Dirty Jacks, the original tasting room has it charm, unless they had a soccer game on the TV where the yelling at the TV made it less than enjoyable experience.

Huge expansion now open and a much more tourist attracting vibe, so if you want to feel like you are in a big city brewery, check out the Green Mansion. If you want to enjoy the Asheville Beer Vibe, go to the original tasting room, Dirty Jacks.

It's hard to move inside this place. The beer is good, not great. Glad I went, but won't be back.

I first stopped in the original building first. Smallish bar area that could seat about 6 folks. Some brewing tanks were visible. There was an outdoor seating area with a wide variety of different furniture. There were about 10 beers on draft, and the ones I had were good but not overly impressive. Then I walked to the newer building which has a big open ground floor area and plenty of tables upstairs. Definite contrast of original old place and the newer building vibe. Again another must stop based on the history of Asheville beer scene.
