This place reminds me of a dumpy bar in a college town, best suited for undergraduate guys. No place comfortable to sit. Seats torn. My husband loved his beer, so that's why 2 stars rather than zero. The bartender had an attitude. I got a...More

Visited the Thirsty Monk a couple of times and there is a really good atmosphere and they have a superb selection of ales. My favourite was the chocolate flavoured porter but keep an eye on the strength

We got Belgian brews in the basement. Good stuff. The bartender gave us a map of breweries within walking distance. That was good stuff, too. We ate and drank at six breweries and were done for the day. We aren't under thirty anymore, so for...More

This place was highly recommended, my husband and I had a date night so we gave this place a try. We both ordered their home made Ale which was really good, had a few appetizers and just enjoying our day. Great atmosphere and great Ale!

This pub has a really cool feel to it. The old building itself is just really great. Upstairs, you'll get the best of local beer and downstairs (my favorite), you can get a flight of international beers (lots and lots to choose from). Really fun...More

If you like Belgian beer, head straight to the basement, order a pint and a pint of bacon and enjoy! Will be a definite stop every time I'm in Asheville.

The Thirsty Monk is definitely a place you should swing by while in Asheville, they have a huge selection of craft beers with three separate bars at the Thirsty Monk. Their bartenders are knowledgeable and the atmosphere is cool.

I'll never visit Asheville again without going here. One needs fuel, a place to sleep and a visit to the Monk. If you visit and don't agree that this is one of the best beer bars in the world, begin staying at home and drinking...More
