An excellent beer bar. Two levels: upstairs is a brighter, high-ceilinged room with about a dozen taps specializing in American craft beers. They often have tap-takeovers, casks or special events.Downstairs is the real treat:A Belgian bar with some real good brews. Worth a special trip. They now update their online tap list in real time so you can always see whatís on.

Cool place. We only stopped by the Belgian bar (downstars) and had a drink after dinner. Apparently they also serve food (looked good, but we werenít in the market for it). I got a chance to see the upstairs and liked the list of brews they were pouring. Very cool place. Nice staff. Cool ambiance. Iíd like to return and eat there and order some of the US craft brews (from the upstairs bar).

In a city of local breweries The Monk stands out for its selection of rare U.S. micro brews and crazy rare European beers. I moved here from NYC in September and there are beers available here that I couldnít get at my favorite Manhattan (Tiger & Ginger Man) and Brooklyn (Spuyten Duyvil) beer bars.
Sometimes the service can be spotty, especially if busy, but thatís an Asheville (or perhaps southern) thing in general.
Food is above average and the happy hour food menu (4:00 - 6:00 pm) is a great bargain.
Overall, its my favorite non-brewery pub in Asheville, and in my top 10 for best pubs in U.S.

Visited with some friends on my most recent venture to Asheville. Good selection of drafts and bottles. I like the upstairs and downstairs decor. Another must for any beer lover.

this was first there and first bar to visit in asheville. come in off of patton and it was like an ordinary bar. simple bar, and some tables. then i read the menu on the wall..i was hooked. they were in the midst of their 1st thirsty fest. some incredible beers. you can get half pours or pints and a beer flight if you choose. this was just the upstairs. you walk downstairs and its another bar complete with more belgium style beers than you can count. sarah, chris, autumn and craig are all awesome and knowledgeable about what they have. thanks for the weekend and the recommendations.

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.

Stopped in after lots of heavy drinking, so I didnít have too many beers here, but the place was cool. The upstairs was more rundown than I expected, but did have some nice casual seating areas with board games, and of course, a large, eclectic selection of local and domestic micros. Downstairs was much nicer...it feels like youíre walking into an old-school underground tavern filled with the best Belgian taplist Iíve ever seen. Iíd love to spend more time here next time Iím in Asheville.

Cool place upstairs and down. I wish they had a bigger tap list as bottles are always so pricey, but they had some very interesting stuff available and were running some nifty flights themed by type of beer or brewery.
