Continuing the beer travelogue of my 2014 Spring Break road trip through the heart of Appalachia — eastern Tennessee and western North Carolina.
My second beer stop in Asheville was Green Man Brewery. I drank a few Green Man brews during my trip to Asheville last year, but this was my first visit to the brewery. I wasted no time grabbing a seat at the Tasting Room bar and ordering a four-beer sampler.
- Shaft Double Black IPA, this big black IPA is brewed with 100% Simcoe hops (7.9%)
- Angus Scotch Ale, a rich and malty Winter Warmer (8.8%)
- Red Barchetta, a west coast-style Red Ale (7.4%)
- Spring Ale, a crisp Pale Ale
I ended my visit to Green Man with a half-pint of Green Man IPA (6.0%).
I loved my visit to Green Man! The vibe, the brew, and the service were all outstanding, and I’ll definitely be back.
