I just got back from my first trip to Asheville and the Thirsty Monk was my favorite bar. The upstairs bar features American craft beers and the downstairs bar serves only Belgian ales. I spent all my time in the downstairs bar. The server was extremely nice and helpful. I could tell she really cared about the beers and the customers enjoyment of them. They have a nice tap selection and a huge bottle selection. Many of the beers are hard to come by in N.C. This is definitely the place to come have some special, hard to find Belgian beers. I wish I had been able to spend more time here and hope to go back. It is a must stop in Asheville.

Excellent selection of both Belgian and American draft options. The Belgian bar downstairs is dimly lit and kind of feels like you're in a cave. The American bar is upstairs, and has your typical craft bar vibe with beer paraphernalia all around. They had Bomb! and Eric's Ale on tap, so I was happy.
