Green Man Brewery
The Green Man is a mythical figure and is an ancient symbol of nature and is said to be the connection between mankind and the natural world around us. Green Man Brewery is an Award-winning brewery, that batch-brews Certified Organic beers. No pesticides have been used to kill the creepy crawlies in our ingredients, that’s all done naturally. Organic producers also use less fossil fuels than non-organic producers. This all ties in with adopting the Green Man as our brand, as it fits our philosophies for ourselves and beyond – hence our slogan: Save The World, One Beer At A Time!! Our beers are brewed according to the Bavarian Beer Purity Law of 1516, using only Water, Malt, Hops and Yeast. They are as natural as it gets, with no added sugars. If you are going to drink beer, then it should not only taste good, it should be good for you! Established in 2006, Green Man has grown from producing 1 beer, to now having 14 different styles! Some are seasonal, but there is a wide variety to cater for every-ones differing tastes. The beer comes in the traditional craft beer size of a 500ml bottle, but we also can offer 330ml options, and also in kegs. Enrico Gritzner is our German Braumeister, and he has a long and impressive brewing background, with a four year degree gained at the Doemens Academy in Munich, and subsequent 21 years brewing experience around the world. His favourite beer is Premium Pils. Try Green Man for yourself and discover yours.
