Green Man Brewery, out of Asheville, NC has added a fourth state to their distribution footprint, launching in Daytona and Ormund Beach.  The addition of Florida brings Green Man to distribution in four states in the Southeast, along with North Carolina, South Carolina, and Tennessee.

Lake, Flagler, Volusia, and Putnam Counties will now be able to enjoy 12 ounce bottles in bars, restaurants, bottle shops, and grocery stores year round.  Green Man will distribute their three flagship ales in Florida, as well as rotating offerings, currently Harvester:

Green Man IPA:  Green Man India Pale Ale is delectably hoppy with a properly balanced body. Generous hop additions give it a wonderful bitterness and pleasant floral nose, while our combination of traditional British malts creates a rich, satisfying flavor and alluring copper color.

Green Man ESB:  A malty amber ale boasting rich toasted and caramel flavors, Green Man ESB is one of our award-winning signature brews. Our blend of authentic British malts and hops creates a nutty aroma, full body, and a sweet finish. Prepare yourself for a truly exceptional interpretation of a traditional English style.

Green Man Porter: Dark, full-bodied, and rich in flavor, Green Man Porter is wonderfully easy to drink. It offers a creamy, smooth mouthfeel and finishes with distinctive chocolate notes. This traditionally crafted, award-winning British-style Porter, like a true rock star, enjoys a legendary following.

Green Man Harvester: Harvester is our interpretation of the classic German Marzen style. Magnum and Palisade highlight a creative hop blend. The result is a deep amber color and a hearty flavor that salutes the old world taste of the season.

“There has been a huge pull of demand for Green Man down in Florida, and we are excited for our fans to have access to our beer close to home,” says PR Manager Elise Carlson.

Green Man has partnered with S.R. Perrott Inc. to debut their Legendary Ales in Florida and will continue to expand distribution throughout the Southeast.

It’s that time of year again, when nights cool down and the Green Man’s foliage turns yellow and orange for the release of Harvester. One of Green Man Brewery’s rotating offerings, Harvester is a unique interpretation of the classic German Märzen style.  

Harvester’s rustic flavor of toasted grain and caramel notes is a salute to the old world taste of the season.  A creative hop blend of German Magnum and American Palisade hops offer a clean bitter palate.

At 6 % ABV and 30 IBU’s this brew is perfect for tossing back at a barbeque or savoring around a campfire.

“Balance is key to this style, and for Harvester the earthy malts and herbal hops meld seamlessly,”  says Green Man’s Head Brewer, John Stuart.         

Harvester’s rich toasted notes imply cooler weather is on the way and it’s festive auburn hue hints at the changing of the leaves. Look for 6 packs and draft of Harvester throughout North Carolina, South Carolina, and parts of Tennessee by the end of September.
