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.

Upstairs is American beer with lots of wood and bright. Downstairs is Belgian with lots of stone and dark. Both fun and great. Service was more help yourself and food was passable, but beer list and atmosphere were top notch.

The Thirsty Monk is definitely the best beer bar in Asheville...and thatís saying a lot given Ashevilleís rising craft beer star. The selection is amazing...not to mention a fun upstairs bar and a really cool downstairs Belgium bar too. I found the staff to be very accomodating and willing to talk beer. Add to that some really good sort of eclectic upscale bar food...and you have a very winning combination. This is the place to go in Asheville to sample a wide variety of WNC beers as well as special beers from beyond NC.

11/29/13. Stopped in briefly while visiting Asheville on 11/27. I would say this would probably be the place I would be hanging out at if I lived in town (in addition to Wicked Weed).
Bright upstairs bar, typical beer bar - signs everywhere, tap handles on the ceiling, etc. Downstairs is darker and nice, more chic, really cool.
Our bartenders were prompt, friendly, and knowledgeable.
Great selection of local beers and others - a pleasant surprise.
I did not try any food (if they have any).
Expensive pours, honestly. Some were half pours reaching some surprisingly high prices.
Overall, I would say this is a must stop in town. I will definitely be back. Make sure to check the upstairs and downstairs taplists. One oddity is you have to tab out before switching floors. Not a huge deal, but just know that going in.

Hung out at the downstairs bar which seemed to be more European beer? Lots of variety of tap... from pale ales to barrel aged Barleywines. Great selection. Bar tender was cool and helpful with out being a douche. Half pours available. Chill atmosphere, with couches or stand around tables. Check it out! you wont regret it!

Casual- lots of wood- front window open to street- a tad stuffy (air movement not vibe). Was fairly busy-- it took a long time to get our first round and they werenít very friendly, but it got better once we grabbed a seat at the bar. Good selection with a bunch of different craft choices upstairs and the downstairs bar committed more or less to Belgians. Prices seemed on the high side for Asheville.

Well located joint, right across from Green Man on a main drag. Rustic and uncomplicated decor, beat wood floors and breweriana. Nice tap list upstairs and down, though not as local-heavy as Iíd hoped (most of their stuff is in distro at home). Good service, attentive and knowledgeable for the most part. Didnít try the food (which looked like standard grease) but a pretty solid beer bar overall.
