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.

This was a must stop on my tour of Asheville. Open doors in the front allow fresh air to flow. I found a seat at the long bar. There were tap handles hanging from the ceiling along with brewery flags and signs. Loads of stickers on the cold box behind the bar. Downstairs is a Belgian Bar, but I didn't venture down. Kitchen is just off the bar.

There were about 40 beers on draft covering American and Belgian breweries. There was 6 house beers on draft here, and I enjoyed a few of them on my visit. Service was good but not overly friendly. Overall this was a worthwhile stop.

A great place in Ashville. They have several locations. I visited one of the other locations and than this one. This location is awesome and worth checking out. The selection is quite good and the bartenders quite knowledgeable. Worth several visits!

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.
