Asheville, NC — Green Man Brewery, a craft beer pioneer in Asheville originating in 1997, will roll out 12 packs for two flagship beers next month, IPA and ESB. This new packaging format will allow customers to purchase Green Man 12 ounce bottles in a convenient 12 pack value box. They will be available for purchase in the tasting room at 27 Buxton Avenue starting Friday August 27, with grocery stores to follow the first week in September, just in time for labor day weekend.
Green Man became available in grocery stores in the format of 12 oz. bottle 6 packs in 2013 and now can be found in North Carolina, South Carolina, and parts of Tennessee. The 12 packs will be launched in grocery stores in Asheville in September, and spread throughout North Carolina.
Packaging is not the only part of Green Man that is expanding. The brewery is currently in the midst of a 5 million dollar expansion, including a Kaspar Shultz brewhouse, packaging hall, tasting room, and retail shop next to the current facility on Buxton Avenue in downtown Asheville.
The following beers will be available in 12 packs:
Green Man IPA: Green Man India Pale Ale is delectably hoppy with a properly balanced body. Generous hop additions give it a wonderful bitterness and pleasant floral nose, while our combination of traditional British malts creates a rich, satisfying flavor and alluring copper color.
Green Man ESB: A malty amber ale boasting rich toasted and caramel flavors, Green Man ESB is one of our award-winning signature brews. Our blend of authentic British malts and hops creates a nutty aroma, full body, and a sweet finish. Prepare yourself for a truly exceptional interpretation of a traditional English style.
