Green Man is tucked away a few blocks southish from Jack of the Wood and the Monk. 8-10 seats at a bar with the beers clearly listed with prices for pints, growlers and pitchers. A few tables next to the tanks..I love this about Asheville, the intimacy at the the tasting rooms. This one is right there with French Broad for having the most 'close quarters' tasting rooms in town, as you are truly right-the-fuck next to the tanks and kettles. I love smelling a mash while I'm drinking a beer more than (almost) anything.

The beer is always very, very fresh here. More so than the pub, and the selection can be better here as well. Not that the pubs beer isn't nice and fresh, but at the brewery it's just sublime.

The bartenders know the beers and tend to be relatively attentive and do there job well.

No food here, but their pub up the street has a menu.

Beers are normally priced for the city, and growlers are a buck or two cheaper than many others here. I was told that a keg of pale would normally be around $85, but that they weren't filling any kegs at the time). I have to assume that's for a 1/4 barrel, because the going rate for a 1/6 of Asheville pale is like low $60's, and this is one of the cheaper brewhouses. So that ain't bad.

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.
