Green Man Brewing Company

Green Man’s beers were first on tap downtown at its brew pub, Jack of the Wood, which opened in 1997 at 95 Patton Ave. Since then, Green Man Brewing Company has moved, expanded fermentation and (just recently) bottled. The second oldest brewery in Asheville (after Highland Brewing Company) credits its recent success to the high standards and consistency of its head brewer, John Stuart (who has held the position since 2007).

“There’s both an art and a science to brewing beer, but you’ve got to be consistent,” Stuart says.

The brewery’s flagship pint is its hop-heavy IPA. Along with other Green Man ales, the tap room features casks, specialty brews and guest taps. After downing a few legendary ales at the elegant wooden bar, you just might start to believe in the mythical earthy man that gives the company its name. And, with plenty of specialty brews like the company’s full-bodied Black Forest Stout and refreshing Summer Wheat Ale, there’s a good chance that you’ll be enjoying a Green Man for all seasons.
