New rating - Visited on a quick Asheville stopover. This is the new building on the South Slope, next to the original. It’s a gorgeous building with a fantastic upstairs patio and view of the mountains, 2 bars, and a viewing area for the brewing operation. Good service, huge selection of Green Man beers. The quirky original place is still open, as well. This is becoming a must visit place. Old review:
On the RBWG 2014 Asheville walking tour, right around the corner from Burial Brewing. Fun place, with a quirky sense of humor and a pretty good beer selection. Service was top notch, as well. I could see us working this into our regular Asheville rotation...
Visited the "new" location while on vacation. This may warrant new place location. Three story bar that was beautiful. Very new feel to it. Almost sanitary. We sat downstairs at the bar the entire time. Had amazing grilled cheese sandwhiches from the food truck. Draft selection was about a dozen of their beers all available in flights. Service was a touch slow considering how slow they were on a Saturday evening. Beers were surprisingly good. A nice selection of stuff that wasn’t their normal lineup. Worth a stop.
1st stop in Asheville on a four-day trip. Went in on a mildly rainy day and sat at the bar around opening time. There were maybe five people in the place. The bartender had a few friends at the end of the bar and she had this "I wouldn’t spit on you if you were on fire" attitude. I had a pour of the Berliner Weiss after waiting for about 10 minutes almost directly in front of the bar tender. I tried a few other Green Man beers around town, and the "old" facility had this well-loved vibe and I am sure that the place didn’t last this long with this level of service, but that was the only impression I got from the place.
Cosy taproom, with an Irish-bar vibe. Service was really friendly, the lady behind the bar gave me a local beer guide (the last one that they had), which was really cool as this was the 1st brewery that I visited in Asheville and had planned to check out a few of the others. Beers were rather straight-ahead and solid. Really likely the Trickster IPA and the Forester Stout. Prices were good. Can definitely recommend.
Cool place, though nothing out of the ordinary among the many cool places in Asheville. Kind of a bikerish rock n roll type vibe. A few beers on tap, though couldn’t try many since they don’t do flights on the weekends like most Asheville places. Service a little grumpy.
