Dirty's Sign.jpg

The legendary Green Man has existed for centuries but it’s no myth that he’s been brewing award-winning ales in Asheville since 1997. As one of North Carolina’s original breweries, Green Man has been producing some of the beer scene’s most iconic ales. Our offerings are consistently recognized for quality and a loyalty to traditional English styles. Additionally, our brewers strive to bring innovative and exciting new flavors to beer-loving folks.

“Dirty Jack’s” was the first (and Asheville's oldest) brewery/taproom to open on the South Slope. The bar is laid into the brewery, where we still brew some of our taproom exclusive specialty beers. If you love a local vibe with regulars and dogs, this is your place! With 3 TV's, dart boards & a covered outdoor patio, we keep it just dirty enough to feel like home!  New ownership in 2010 spurred changes at Green Man with a focus on production, distribution, and growth. In 2015 construction was completed on the Green Mansion, a 3 story, 20,000 square ft., packaging hall, “brewtique”, and an indoor/outdoor top floor taproom that overlooks production and the Blue Ridge Mountains. We invite you to visit both locations and experience our evolution!


2022 saw Green Man celebrate a milestone 25th Anniversary, bringing back limited batches of classic retired styles freshly updated for the modern palate as well as continuing to explore and innovate with all new styles available in our tap rooms. We also opened our kitchen, Green Man Eats, and began offering the South Slope fresh, scratch made pub fare done right! Numerous and exciting new ventures are in the works as we celebrate our legendary past while looking forward to an even greener future.
