This place was my personal favorite out of the latest Asheville, NC trip. A marvelous local brewery / tasting room, tucked away in an older industrial section of Asheville. The building looks like it was a small warehouse or possibly a garage in its earlier life. Now it's a great local small output brewery. The brewery equipment is easily viewed from the tasting room up front, as most of the building is one large room. The place smells of malt and yeast! Yea baby! There is a bar and tables set up front near the windows and roll-up garage door. A side porch gives the place a little extra seating. Mainly locals and those "in the know", which I like, frequent the place. It has an "old but reused" feel to it that I like. The local dogs come with their owners and it's a very friendly, laid back atmosphere. You feel like you know the bartender after you leave the place. The only other place I know of similar to this local brewery / tasting room is Oak Creek Brewing Co. in Sedona, AZ. The beers ranged from good to excellent. There is always one beer on the hand pump (cask) and at the time of my visit it was an ESB, quite good. However, the Toasted Coconut Porter/Stout was incredible! Hands down one of the best beers I have EVER had! I could have stayed there all night, just drinking that beer. Looking back, we should have.
Don't let the location or look of the place concern you, just sit and enjoy the local beer, this is the tops!

Visited late June 2007.
As mentioned in another review, this place is a very short walk from Barley's. I suggest starting at Barley's and heading to Green Man for a flight. None of the beers truly knocked my socks off but the atmosphere was great.
There is a small bar with a cool british bartender who likes to push the real ales. In front of the bar are a few stools and to the side are a few tables and I think a porch. For the most part the building is the brewery (in a room behind the bar). This place serves up some fantastic locally produced mustard (Lusty Monk's Original Sin mustard i think) that I had to leave with a jar of.
Not only are the beers pretty good and the atmosphere cool, you have a high potential of running into Mark from Brews Cruise if you are there on a weekend afternoon. He is a real cool guy and would be more than willing to sign up for a Brews Cruise for the next day or even hop right in if he isn't too crowded. I generally recommend his cruise, it's a fun time and it adds the safety of a designated driver (and cold water in between stops)...but i digress.
I will have to return to Green Man and check out their porch (I think they have one) but i really enjoyed our brief stay there.

This place is a little out of the way. I wanted a growler and went here to get it. This place is a stone's throw from McCormick Field. This was really a small place. There was a brewery in back with a small bar area up fromt. The bartender was a super nice guy that reccomended a couple brews. The parking was ample here. This place was cool as you could have a pint and watch beer being brewed at the same time. The building looked to be an old warehouse of some type. There was nothing seperating the brewery from the sample area except for pallets of grains. A small place with a nice atmosphere. I will be back here sometime.

GC has already done a good job describing this place. I'll just add that it's a great addition to the Asheville "walking tour" area that I love where I can park for a weekend and hit up several places without ever having to get in your car again.
Dirty Jacks is a brewery first. Like the breweries in Asheville, they can also sell the beer directly from the brewery. So they have setup a small bar where you can buy an inexpensive pint or three. Nothing quite like sitting at a small bar in the brewery drinking the fresh product!
I just wish they had some weekend hours where you could make it a daily stop throughout a weekend trip.

Wow, a first BeerFly review. Green Man is located off Buxton just a block or so from Coxe and not too far from Biltmore.
The place is just a wide window, a door and a roll up door. You walk into a foyer with two benches, one perpendicular to the door and another in front of the window. The bar is directly in front of you and off to the side in front of the roll up door is seating for a few more. In total the seating is about 30 and music is emitted from the stereo. Directly behind the roll up door seating is the brewery.
There were 4 drafts at the time of my visit, an ESP a Dry Hopped IPA, a Chocolate Stout and a Belgian Strong Dark. The service was very good till the barkeep got deep into conversation and the only food was pretzels so you may as well say that none was served.
The beer was very cheap at $3 pints, but growlers and kegs seemed a bit steep for the market. The place is opened 5-10 on some nights and 5-9 on others, but on certain nights they do not open at all. Might be best to call or check the website before going.
Well worth the trip.
