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.

“Greenmansion” Grand Opening Date Set

close up signThe time has finally come for the much-anticipated third expansion project of Green Man Brewery to open it’s doors to customers.  Staying true to Green Man tradition, the Grand Opening celebration will be on St. Patty’s Day 2016.  Green Man released its first ever bottles on St. Patty’s in 2013, and has continued celebrations for the rollicking holiday.

The 20,000 square foot “Greenmansion” is located next to current operations on Buxton Avenue on the South Slope of Downtown Asheville.  Inside is a top floor indoor/outdoor tasting room, which overlooks the production floor and offers views of the Blue Ridge Mountains.  A ground level “Brewtique” serves as a bottle shop, growler station and merchandise retailer. A sidewalk patio with two firepits offers a prime people-watching hangout.

The production space will start out as a packaging hall with bright tanks, a KHS CombiKeg Keg Wash/Fill, and a brand new KHS bottling line on the way. Eventually the facility will have a specialty brewhouse as well.

“As the first brewery located on the South Slope, we are fortunate to have the opportunity to expand operations in our own neighborhood,” says Elise Carlson, Marketing Manager.

Special beer tappings will occur throughout the day.  Guests are encouraged to dress up as their interpretation of Green Man, and there will be a prize for the best costume.  Food trucks will be on site for the occasion.

The original tasting room, lovingly nicknamed “Dirty Jack’s” by locals, will continue to be open 7 days a week.

Green Man Debuts New Facility to OpenDoors of Asheville

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.
