Green Man Brewery

- Present

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. Their offerings are consistently recognized for quality and loyalty to traditional English styles.

Oral history interview with Dennis Thies (2021)

That Green Man is a personification of a brand. He's a man, he's a dude, he's a deity, he's a demon, he's a man of the woods, protector of the animals, whatever you want it to be. Our brand is very deep in that.

Dennis Thies purchased Green Man Brewery in Asheville since 2010. In the years since, he has overseen the brewery's expansion in the South Slope portion of Asheville.
