Green Man Brewery got its name from the mythical sylvan woodland creature, the Green Man. This seasoned brewery has been serving fresh, hoppy beers to North Carolina locals and visitors since 1997. Green Man brews their beer at either the newly built, “Greemansion,” or their original tasting room, “Dirty Jack’s.” Guests particularly enjoy visiting Dirty Jack’s, as it’s one of the few dog-friendly breweries in Asheville and they have a shaded patio! Whichever facility you decide to visit, be sure to sample their Green Man ESB and Green Man IPA.
