This is Asheville's original funky garage brewery for great beer and watching soccer with avid soccer fans. It's 100 feet up the street from it's much larger and lavish new home of Green Man Brewery. This is where locals come to enjoy beer and decompress after work. No stylish architecture, no fancy anything. Just good craft beer in a no-frills... More

Our son had visited here in the 90s and recommended it to us for drinks in the afternoon. We stopped in and loved the place. The beer was exceptional with us enjoying the Grisette and the Flagship ESB. You can sit inside at a few tables or sit along the open window street side and face out to watch passersby.... More

We pulled up to the new Green Man Brewery - all shiny and pretty. The man inside said we could go up to the new tasting room or go up the block to the original place called Dirty Jacks. Original is always better. Typical Asheville bar/brewery. Open air, people and dogs hanging out. it was a pretty warm night so... More

Don't go to Dirty Jack's if you're looking for ambient light and brushed aluminum tables. This is a raw place, and we love it! Great selection of beer in a very casual environment.

The rotating and specialty beers never fail to satisfy at Dirty Jacks. Old Smokey has a deep copper hue with a smoky malt taste. Not bad at 5.9%.

It is off the beaten path, but is great find. They have great home brews and very friendly staff. I am a seasonal visitor. It is a brewery I always make sure to hit. The Hollycane beer is great, and is only available in December. All of their beers are wonderful.

Tasting rooms are big in my hometown and they seem to be bigger in Asheville. I stopped into the Green Man Brewing's tasting room and enjoyed a beer on the patio outside. This is an interesting group, a few suits, but mostly more of an earthy vibe that is common throughout Asheville. Their beers are alright, not my favorite but... More

Dirty Jacks is the tasting room for Green Man Brewing. (Jack of the Wood is the restaurant located not far from Buxton Ave. for Green Man Brewing.) It's a small space that packs in the people. The vats are located behind the bar. They have a couple of tvs showing sports, especially soccer. It's an unpretentious place. The beer ranges... More
