Complete the form below to tell us about the problematic review for Jack Of The Wood / Green Man Brewery, which says:
"The only non-smoking bar I've ever seen. I wish there were more (don't implore me to move to that whacko state out West, it ain't gonna happen). The atmosphere was inviting and intimate. The theme was Celtic in origin; but rather than a knock-off British Aisles pub, it seemed to also draw on the local region's Celtic heritage and tie the two together. Think of it as "British Aisles meets Carolina Highlands." Nice touch. They have the coolest logo I've ever seen; there's a nice picture posted here of a stained-glass rendering of the logo located above the bar.
The menu carried the theme, resulting in a limited selection. The food was quite fine, though we ordered small stuff and saved our appetite for a place with a broader menu.
They only brew three of their own beers at any given time. When I went there was an IPA, a brown ale and an ESB. The IPA was very crisp and clean, though not as caramel as the style suggests. A sharp bitterness subsided as the beer got warmer to bring about a good balance. The ESB had an appropriate hop-malt balance but had an aftertaste reminiscent of cheap American mass-brew. (My wife suggested the aftertaste resembled dish soap.) The brown ale had a fantastic nutty, warm roasted flavor--one of the best examples of the style I've had in a long time. Other beers on tap included Guinness, Bass, Sierra Nevada Pale Ale, Boddington's, etc."
