Well, I know where my go to spot in Downtown is now. This place is great, from ambiance to selection. For what you can get in NC they have it. Great tap selection, a bottle list, and even a chalk board updated every day of bottled beers you can get by the glass. Cool Belgian cheese and chocolate plates, and the pricing is not as bad as you would think. Matching glassware is a huge plus, everything is great about this place. Very exciting times.

We absolutely love these folks. Always a serious selections of well placed world class brews, served in properly rinsed glassware, by knowledgeable beer geeks. Great events just about every night of the week, mind boggling bottle selection as well. A must for sure and we do regularly, so we will probably see you there!

The best beer bar in Asheville no questions asked. Clean glassware, huge selection of draft and bottles. Very knowledgeable staff. Upstairs is an American pint house and downstairs is a Belgian theme.

The crew at MonkSouth always make us feel welcome, especially Craig. Both Craig and Opus have made fantastic recommendations on beers to try. I love all of the food we have ever tried there. Hey, Barry! We need to get that KBS keg down South. Just consider it a present for the loyal customers from Myers Motorcycles. Hint, hint.

A local bar that specializes in Belgian beers...this is too good to be true! This adds another layer of sophistication to this already beer-erudite town. Has a cozy grotto feel (although the walls could be darker), impressive selection of bottles and glassware. Beer by the glass is an unexpected nice touch. Would like to see more abbey style ales on tap. Look forward to many more sessions with the Monk!

Clearly The Thirsty Monk has the widest Belgian beer selection in Asheville, so if I have that craving I will likely end up here. The dark, cave-like ambiance is a huge plus as well. The tap selection is fair with a reasonable selection of styles and just pricing. I found the prices for larger bottles to be rather high, reflecting about double the cost at a nearby bottle shop. I don’t mind shelling out $10 or even maybe $12 for a 750ml of Allagash Trippel, but higher than that seems a bit much. That seems to be a common problem among a few bars downtown. Anyway, by sticking to the taps and some of the smaller bottles I was able to enjoy a wide variety of Belgian brews served in brand appropriate glassware while relaxing in the dark and keeping a fair bar tab.

I cannot believe I haven’t updated about the Thirsty Monk.They have gone balls to the wall in the past two years. Of course, they’ve added an upstairs which focuses solely on American craft beer and they have also added a kitchen which serves up mouthwatering food. Thirsty Monk went from being a good bar that specializes in Belgian beer to being a force to be reckoned with when it comes to all things beer. Superbly bad ass place now. They have become a mandatory beer destination.
