The time is drawing near for Green Man to open the taps in our brand new 20,000 square foot expansion. As a sneak preview, Green Man will host a private charity event for the nonprofit organization OpenDoors of Asheville on March 5th.
OpenDoors “connects local children living in multigenerational poverty with an active, individualized network of support and opportunities for education and enrichment.” In addition to several other nonprofits, Green Man has supported this organization for several years and continues to partner with them in fundraising events.
“We feel this is an amazing way to kick start the next chapter of our brewery,” says Wendy Thies, co-owner of Green Man. “We feel so very blessed for the amazing growth we have had and believe it is incredibly important to give back to our community.”
This occasion marks the very first time guests will enjoy the multi-level facility that showcases 18 taps and outdoor seating areas on two levels. The top-floor tasting room features expansive mountain views and is also open to the activity of the production floor. The ground level “brewtique” has a merchandise center and additional room for tour groups. The year and a half construction project underscores Green Man’s ongoing commitment to Asheville and the South Slope neighborhood.
Several “soft opening” nights will follow the OpenDoors event, with a grand opening extravaganza scheduled for mid-March.
