Downtown Asheville

Our flagship Thirsty Monk opened in downtown Asheville in early 2008, and has since grown to include two floors of plentiful beer options for your enjoyment.

The Patton Avenue level is a bright and lively space that features 20 tap lines, consistently pouring our own Belgian-Rooted Modern Ales. High ceilings and an outdoor porch provide a relaxed atmosphere, perfect for having a beer while you watch the always interesting goings-on in the heart of downtown Asheville. Enjoy a delicious menu of House Made Hand Pies, Pints of Bacon and Soft Pretzels. Pick up a limited edition 500 ml bottled Monk beer to-go.

Take the stairs down to the basement level where you’ll find the Belgian and Sour Beer Bar. The stone walls, rustic wood and leather couches invite you to relax and take your time enjoying a carefully curated tap list of Belgian, Imported and rare beers, including an additional selection of our own Thirsty Monk Brewery beers. An extensive bottle cooler has plenty of options for everyone to imbibe on site or take home, including plenty of limited edition and rare options.

Biltmore Park

Our spacious Biltmore Park location opened in 2013, and is the location to find our entire available lineup of Thirty Monk Brewery beers. This bustling neighborhood taproom serves 28 taps, plus a full pub food menu that includes our Chef-Inspired Burger and Beer Combinations. There is plenty of seating both inside and out on our patio, as well as a private event room. Since opening, Biltmore Park has played host to several large events, including our annual two-story New Year’s Eve Keg Drop. Come enjoy weekly specials, beer releases, and the opportunity to try all of our Thirsty Monk Brewery offerings, with 500 ml bottles available to-go.

Portland

Thirsty Monk’s Portland location was established in 2018. If Monks lived in Portland, this would be their watering hole! Located in the heart of Hawthorne, tucked away just off of SE 32nd Avenue, Thirsty Monk Portland offers a full service taproom of its Belgian Rooted Modern Ales, plus a premium liquor selection. While sipping on your craft beer or cocktail, enjoy an outstanding food menu from Tight Tacos. Thirsty Monk Portland supports the Timbers and Thorns, and showcases these and other events on a 114″ HDTV with surround sound.

Denver

Our 12 Barrel Production Brewery is located in Denver’s Uptown, City Park West neighborhood along 17th Avenue “Restaurant Row”! Head Brewer Brian Grace is based in the Mile High city, and is brewing Thirsty Monk’s core, seasonal, specialty, and side-project beers there. He is also spearheading the creation of open fermentation, barrel aging and sour programs, based in Denver and North Carolina. Join us in our intimate and comfortable taproom, or out on the patio next to the fire. We are serving fresh-from-the-tanks pours of our Belgian-Rooted Modern Ales, along with Shared Plates and a Denver local favorite, Hinman’s Bakery sweet and savory Hand Pies with expertly selected beers to pair!
