Full of a bunch of drunk folks on the inside. The outside near the Out of the Blue food truck (horribly overpriced by the way) was better and a tad more quiet. Minus the drunk dudes bragging about their beer prowess. Only a few beers on tap, even though they had a wall of handles. Decent price for beer. Overpriced for the beer I got. Wouldn’t recommend.
Very close to many central Asheville breweries, the tasting room is very clean and comfortable with limited seating downstairs, but also has an upstairs with the same taps. 10 taps or so, with flights ordinarily available but they had no glassware when we visited - still managed to coax them into smaller pours. Beer quality was pretty solid, with a couple of imperial stouts and a BA barey wine on the list. Service was nonchalant and passive. Decent stop.
Airy newish high-ceiling place with a gift shop. On South Slope so easy access from the other places around the corner. Good service and flights available. Ok place to have some beers but not perhaps to stay all night. Didn't went upstairs. Beers are above average in Asheville scale, so if you have only time for few bars in Asheville, this is one of them.
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.
