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 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.

Clocking in at 9.3% ABV, this behemoth is heavily dry-hopped and bursting with Columbus, Simcoe, Citra, and Chinook hops.

The Rainmaker has received multiple accolades from several beer publications. It scored a 94 rating in Beer Connoisseur Magazine. The editors noted, “..this wonderfully smooth and easy-drinking Double IPA manages to stand out from the pack.”

One of craft beer’s most notable personalities, Charlie Papazian, praised The Rainmaker in All About Beer Magazine as having, “well-balanced bitterness doesn’t attack, but rather blends in with malt complexity and hop flavors and aroma.”  Beer marketing pioneer Charles Finkel described it as “…a masterful balance of cereal and spice, with a lasting ‘come back for more’ finish.” An incredible overall score of 98 makes it one of the highest reviewed beers on ratebeer.com

Due to popular demand, it will be available this year in a more functional 4-pack of 12 oz bottles. Look out for it at select retailers that carry great beer throughout North Carolina, South Carolina, and Tennessee.

“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.

Green Man’s La Mas Negra Returns

La Mas Bottle Shot

Green Man Brewery is heating things up for Valentine’s Day this year, with the release of their spicy, chocolatey Imperial Black Ale on February 12th.  This high gravity beer is brewed with specialty roasted malts and a Mexican brown sugar called Panela. It is then aged on cocoa nibs from Asheville’s French Broad Chocolate, cinnamon, ancho, guajillo, and smoked morita chilis.

This limited release is back by popular demand for its second year. On ratebeer.com La Mas Negra holds an overall score of 99, and it boasts a world-class 97 from Jason Alström of Beer Advocate.

“It’s a hefty brew with some warmth from the chili peppers and the alcohol, which makes for an interesting dynamic,” says Jason. “The real draw here though, sip after sip, is the impeccable balance. By far the most interesting beer I’ve tried this year.”

Inky black with intense roast and coffee aromas, the flavor blend is an artful combination of cocoa and fruity chilis with just a hint of burn. At 8.9 %, the warming quality of La Mas Negra provides a rich and satisfying palate that complements the distinct notes of chocolate and spice.

La Mas Negra is a small batch offering that will be available in 750 mL bottles and on draft at the tasting room.  Bottles can be purchased at the brewery and select retailers throughout North Carolina, South Carolina, and Tennessee.
