After successful launches in the Upstate and Midlands, Asheville’s Green Man Brewery has expanded to statewide distribution across South Carolina.
In a press release Thursday, the brewery announced its product is now available throughout the Palmetto State. Green Man launched in Greenville and surrounding areas last year and expanded distribution into Columbia and the Midlands earlier this year.
With the recent addition of three new distribution partners, Asheville based Green Man Brewery will now be available throughout all of South Carolina. After a very positive response from signing with Beverage South in Columbia and GreenCo Beverage in Greenville in 2014, South Carolina has proved to be an important market for Green Man. A recent partnership with Lee Distributors of Charleston, The Yahnis Company of Myrtle Beach, and B&B Distributors of Rock Hill fills in distribution for the rest of the state.
Not only is Green Man expanding distribution, but the brewery is currently in the midst of a 5 million dollar expansion project located next door to their operation in the South Slope of Asheville, slated to be finished by Fall of 2015. The 3 story, 18,000 square foot expansion will include a new packaging hall, specialty brewhouse, retail shop, and indoor/outdoor rooftop tasting room.
The following Green Man beers will be available throughout South Carolina:
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.
Green Man Porter: Dark, full-bodied, and rich in flavor, Green Man Porter is wonderfully easy to drink. It offers a creamy, smooth mouthfeel and finishes with distinctive chocolate notes. This traditionally crafted, award-winning British-style Porter, like a true rock star, enjoys a legendary following.
Summer Seasonal: Wayfarer Summer IPA: Perfect for summertime, Green Man’s easy drinking summer IPA suits every activity you fancy. This sessionable White IPA has refreshing citrus aroma and a crisp finish that is ideal for longer days and warm nights.
There will be limited distribution of specialty bottles and draft.
