Thriller Saison Returns in October

thrillerposter

 

Something evil’s lurking in the dark at Green Man Brewery.  The time is drawing near for the special limited release of Thriller Saison, only available during the creepiest season of the year.  This rustic farmhouse ale bids adieu to the carefree sunshine of Summer and ushers in crisp October nights with the combination of hearty beets and juicy blood orange.

The beet addition to this brew offers a sanguine hue, attracting both mortal and otherworldly beings.  Generous additions of Amarillo hops complement the zesty blood orange with floral aromas and notes of grapefruit.  Spicy, dry characteristics from the Saison yeast dances with earthy beet flavors rendering a distintive palate.  Beware, at 7.7 % this sturdy beer is an easy-drinker that may have you howling at the moon!

This tasty treat is only available once a year, so if you are blood(orange)thirsty be sure to haunt Green Man Brewery on October 14th for your first chance for draft pours and 750 mL bottles.   Thriller will be available starting the following week in limited quantities on the shelves at select retailers in North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee and Georgia.

 

Harvester is back!

DSC_0644

While it may seem like we are sweltering through the ‘endless summer’, the fact is that autumn is just around the corner and with it the imminent release of Green Man’s Harvester Ale. Come August, this unique interpretation of the classic German Märzen will start hitting the shelves of groceries, bottle shops, and convenience stores throughout the Southeast.

Harvester displays a deep amber color and a hearty malt bill with notes of caramel and toasted malts. Earthy and spicy Magnum and Palisade hops are highlighted without being overbearing. This beer is rustic and approachable, perfect for balmy evenings, but it’s bold flavors also pair well with that brisk fall breeze that will be creeping in before too long.

Find Harvester Ale at retail establishments which sell great craft beer throughout North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Georgia, and Florida. Look out for the red and yellow leaves on the Green Man’s foliage to celebrate the approaching relief from the heat!

Maceo and Bootsy Double Bottle Release

MACEO BOOTSY

 

You’ve been asking for your buddies Bootsy and Maceo and they are finally ready to make a rare appearence…together! Never miss a Sunday bottle release, this one is sure to be a funky good time.

Bootsy:
This strong, sour black ale will funkify your life. Aged in our magic funk barrels for over a year, its so dark you may need a flashlight. This dog has an atomic tartness that will satisfy a nation under a sour beer groove. This beer ain’t nothin’ but a party!

Maceo:
A super limited imperial brown ale aged for 12 months in our magic barrels with an insane amount of sweet Oregon cherries. Pucker up with Maceo and taste the Funk!

Maceo and Bootsy are the most limited of all of our releases. Due to the limited nature of these bottles, the bottle limit will be one of each, all or nothing. One wristband will respresent 1 bottle of Maceo AND 1 bottle of Bootsy. They must be purchased together.

Like the last Snozzberry Day, the line will start at the back door of the Greenmansion. We know y’all will be posted up early, so that morning Melt Your Heart food truck will be serving up delicious breakfast sandwiches.

At noon we will begin the wristbands and wind the line through the production floor. Yes, we know it is a Panthers game and we will be showing it so you can watch from the line. We will also be slinging our cans in the line for $2, CASH ONLY. So bring cash if you will want a cold one while waiting. No outside bottles allowed on the production floor. Our goal is to move the line through as speedily and efficiently as possible.

It is important that you stay in line in order of your wristband number. If you have to go to the bathroom, get back in line in order of your wristband number. Your bottles depend on it.

The wristbands will be clearly numbered and bottles must be purchased in order of your number. You must be in line in order of your number to purchase the bottle. Just having a wristband does not guarantee your bottles, unless you are in line at the time of your number’s turn.

Please be in wristband number order when it comes time to purchase bottles. Due to concerns we have received from guests about people not staying in their line order we have to do it this way to eliminate these complaints. Seriously, its a thing, and we care about your feedback.

We do accept credit cards for bottle sales.

There will be some fun surprises unveiled on draft Sunday, revealing a future package release. Bootsy and Maceo will not be on draft, HOWEVER…..

Friday Sept 16, at 7 pm we will be serving a limited amount of Bootsy upstairs for on-premise consumption only, and

Saturday Sept 17 at 7 pm we will be serving a limited amount of Maceo upstairs for on-premise consumption only.

Green Man Brewery Releases First Canned Offering

Wayfarer can JPG

Green Man Brewery, which has been a staple in the Asheville beer scene since its conception in 1997, finally has a canned offering available.  Wayfarer IPA is one of Green Man’s most popular rotating offerings that has been offered in 12 oz. bottles in the past.  This Citra-forward IPA will now be available in 12 oz. can 6-packs.

“Wayfarer IPA was the clear choice for our first can,” says Elise Carlson, Director of Marketing. “It’s crisp and refreshing, perfect for a day at the beach or on the river.”

Head brewer John Stuart formulated the recipe for this IPA including loads of flavorful aroma hops and a pale malt bill. This allows for the Citra and Simcoe hops used in the dry-hop to shine through, creating bright notes of citrus hops and a pleasant bitter finish.

Find Wayfarer cans this Spring in select markets in North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennesse and Florida.
