Wheatseeker is a German-style Hefeweizen, fermented with a yeast strain used in Germany for hundreds of years. A light-bodied easy-drinker, with a wheat and yeast combination that creates a slightly spicy character. We hopped it with German grown Opal hops, which lends a slight citrus effect. Find this new offering on draft at our tasting room, and in six pack bottles come 2017!
La Mas Negra
La Mas Negra is an Imperial Black Ale with the addition of Mexican brown sugar, cinnamon, smoked morita, ancho, and guajillo chilis and then aged on cocoa nibs. Inky black with intense coffee and roast aroma and flavor blend of cocoa and fruity chilies with just a hint of burn.
None More Black
Norwegian brewers have an old tradition of brewing a beer and storing it so if they passed away during the year there would be beer for their funeral. If they didn’t die they would drink it in celebration. Our specialty brewer Mike is following this tradition with this pitch black strong ale aged for 12 months in whiskey barrels. Mike made it through another year so the public gets to enjoy this beer that is so black that if you ask how much more black it could be, the answer is none…..none more black.
This hair-raising Saison is eerily good. Additions of Blood Orange and beets give it the grisly red color while Vienna, Rye & Wheat malts and 100% Amarillo hops give it supernatural flavor. Beware, you may want to howl at the moon…‘Cause this is Thriller.
Green Man and the Chocolate Factory
The aromas swirl down on groovy Buxton Ave as Green Man and French Broad Chocolate Factory concoct their scrumdiddlyumptiousness next door to each other. This one of a kind Chocolate Stout uses single source Nicaraguan cacao that is infused into the beer with the extraordinarily unique technique of forced cavitation. It’s a collaboration of love bringing together two great tastes that taste great together. “You’re going to love this… just love it!”
Vanilla and coconut aromas and subtle, complimentary flavors are the result of six months in second-use whiskey barrels. Hints of Applewood smoked malt combine with oats, dark Munich and roasted malts to create a wonderfully smooth, complex beer.
L’homme Vert is a chic traditional farmhouse ale. It’s brewed with 20% roasted butternut and acorn squash along with spelt and local rye malt. It was then fermented with a blend of Belgian saison and witbier yeast and finally magic barrel aged for three months. It has a crisp refreshing character despite it’s alcohol and will get funkier in the bottle over time. À la vôtre!
This rich dark ale spent six months in a Maker’s Mark whiskey barrel. The oak barrel contributes wonderful coconut and vanilla notes that perfectly compliment the smooth darkness of the Baltic porter. Named after the Baltic god of fermentation, Raugupatis is a super limited batch of 250 bottles released in celebration of Asheville’s Annual Beer Week.
In Berlin this beer is served with a shot of raspberry or woodruff syrup. Drink it straight or try it sweetened with a syrup of your choice, maple syrup would be uniquely American. Green Man aged this beer for 4 months in a magic barrel – enjoy its bracing tartness and delicate hint of funk. Prost!
Asheville’s first sour beer! A complex red ale aged for 6 months in one of our “magic” barrels, then for another 3 months in a rum barrel. We look forward to its return, one day! Who’s got the funk? We got the funk!
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.
Strip away the old debris with this bold Red IPA. Assertive hoppiness balances a sturdy malt bill highlighted by rich caramel notes. The alluring crimson hue will make you want to ditch the lawnmower and grab a Leaf Blower!
This time of year demands a bold flavor. Green Man’s beloved stout delivers. An impressive blend of roasted black and chocolate malts creates an opaque color and alluring depth. A distinctive blend of hops allows the balanced flavor to shine. The Forester personifies a trustworthy companion for winter’s unpredictable darkness.
As you seek your place in the sun, this light-bodied Pils is perfect company. German hops and authentic Pilsner malt deliver our signature full-flavor. Green Man invites you to meet light beer’s rival!
We blended 3 years of our famous Snozzberry base to create a new, unfruited, 3 year American Blond Sour. With all the vibrant notes from souring this new addition will have your saddles blazing and pronouncing Frankenstein as Fronkensteen. A perfect balance of silliness, sophistication, and skill.
