about-monkSince opening in Downtown Asheville in 2008, Thirsty Monk has expanded to include two additional neighborhood pubs on the south and north sides of town. In 2013, The Thirsty Monk brand grew to include Top of the Monk, named one of the best pre-Prohibition era craft cocktail bars. We are proud to have played a part in the growth of Asheville’s vibrant craft beer and cocktail movement. We strive to provide the area’s most expansive, unique and rare craft beer selection. To that end, we are constantly rotating our taps, so you always have the best choice of beers, with carefully balanced tap standards to maintain a variety of styles. We also host hundreds of events each year, ranging from releases of super-rare and exclusive beers to tap takeovers to full-scale festivals. Check out our events page for what’s coming up soon! Under the Thirsty Monk Brewery moniker we also brew a wide array of Belgian-style beers. Our award-winning Brewmaster, Norm Penn always has several batches in progress for your drinking pleasure, and Thirsty Monk house beers can be found on tap at all of our locations. We take our beer seriously, and are committed to creating a relaxed and welcoming atmosphere with excellent tap choices, great pub grub and fun beer-related events. We look forward to having a pint with you. Cheers!
