Green Man Brewery (Asheville, North Carolina) is celebrating two decades of brewing by releasing the 20th Anniversary Variety 12 Pack this fall.
Green Man Brewery has certainly come a long way after “20 Legendary Years” of craft brewing in North Carolina Appalachia. Starting out as the first brewery in the “brewery district” of Asheville, their reputation for producing fine representations of traditional English styles has made it possible to gracefully evolve and grow over time. This growth most recently includes the addition of a canning line and the opening of the Greenmansion in March of 2016.
To properly honor and reflect upon these past 20 years, the people of Green Man have decided to release the 20th Anniversary Variety 12 Pack of 12 oz. cans. This mixed 12 pack contains two flagship offerings (ESB and IPA) to harken back to the brewery’s beginning, but also features two newer offerings (Sunseeker Pils and Wayfarer IPA) to highlight the brewery’s growth through the years. If you happen to be unfamiliar with any of these brews, here are the full descriptions for each offering:
- ESB Special Amber Ale – 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. ABV – 5.5% IBUs – 32
- India Pale Ale (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. This authentic English-style IPA is our flagship ale. ABV – 6.2% IBUs – 63
- Sunseeker Pils – 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! ABV – 5.2%
- Wayfarer India Pale Ale – Perfect for every occasion, this easy drinking IPA suits any activity you fancy. This cool ale has a rockin’ citrus aroma and a laid-back finish. So pull your hair back, drop the top and put those Wayfarers on, baby. ABV – 6.0% IBUs – 70
The 20th Anniversary Variety 12 Pack is headed out to distribution now and will be available through the months of fall. Look for this pack to be available at craft beer retailers in Green Man Brewery’s full distribution area of Florida, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee and Georgia.
