Great bar in downtown Asheville. The decor is neat, but kinda dingy. This is made up for by the comfortable feel, and the busy, but laid back, vibe. The servers were overworked, but were very friendly, when they had the time. The selection is great. Plenty of taps upstairs and down, including several rare and unusual things. The food is surprisingly good. The prices are great, too. All the beer on tap is similarly priced, and they offer half pours. This is a top notch beer bar, and I will return, if I can.

Good selection of beers up stairs and a good selection of Belgian breers down stairs. Dissapointsing that they s Didnít have any of their beers on tap. Probably wouldnít go back.

Stopped in for a quick beer and a snack. They were a little busy with all the craft beer activities going on. Right down the street from our hotel in the heart of downtown. Great location, and a downstairs we did not visit, just didnít have time. Worth the stop.

Cool place. There is a bar upstairs and a bar downstairs. The bar upstairs serves american brews and the bar downstairs serves belgian brews. They have a great taster which if I had more time, I would have gotten a second. Bartenders on both levels were extremely friendly and knowledgeable. Beer selection was good however I didnít find much that struck my fancy.

Visited during RBWG. Only really spent time upstairs but they sure did have some nice brews. A bunch of hoppy American stuff plus some Euro stuff like Weihenstephaner Hefeweissbier. Homey place. Would visit again.

Cool atmosphere, very chill. Nice chatty service. Iíd like to hang out here but there just wasnít enough locals to make it interesting, really a weak list. Disappointing.

The Thirsty Monk has an impressive range of beers with at least 20 on tap and about 200 bottles. Upstairs itís spacious and airy, whilst the downstairs room is like a dungeon - long, dark and narrow with lanterns, a large Belgian flag and lots of little models of monks. Itís very much like a Belgian brown cafť in fact. Thereís also a small patio at the front. (Last visited 9 February 2014).

Central Asheville dedicated beer bar. Belgian imports and Belgian styles downstairs. Anglo-American stuff upstairs. Saw a lot of barrelled and strong beer on the menu. Struggled to find something to drink. Picked a NZ pale ale from an English brewer which was oxidized :/

I had a great time here. They have an extensive draft list featuring beers from the local area in addition to esoteric stuff from around the USA. They offer a four-beer flight, which was handy. Great value. Friendly and attentive service. Very convenient location. Well worth seeking out if you are in town.

Visited late on a Thursday to find the place pretty empty except for a few other ratebeerians. I visited the downstairs bar. Itís a pretty casual spot, decorated with beer signs and other paraphernalia. Solid tap list. Decent locals, some random offerings from the likes of Sierra Nevada and Ballast Point. Prices were decent, service was fine. Overall, definitely a place to include in a tour of Asheville.
