This is a must stop if you are in Asheville and a fan of Belgians of all kinds. I didnít have anything to eat, but there are a wide variety of beers on tap upstairs and down, they do half glasses, and are very friendly. The world needs more bars like this.

High end beer selection. Very unique offerings - no mainstream beers here. Ambiance is better downstairs.

Stunning Belgian selection in the middle of the montains of No.Carolina. The barmaid at the cellar bar was a Belgian national who was extremely knowledgable and friendly. The barmaid at the upstairs bar serving American beer was just as friendly, but not as knowledgable. Food on several occasions was great!

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.
