With the heaviest of hearts, Thirsty Monk Brewery will adjust service at some Asheville locations through the weekend and discontinue service in Denver and Portland in response to COVID-19.

Thisty Monk Brewery is offering to-go service only at its two Asheville, North Carolina locations.

Orders will be call-in and walkup for the immediate time, and a new online ordering portal. The company promises to diligently sterilize and clean these locations to keep everyone safe. In addition to Thirsty Monk Brewery cans and bottles and food, these locations will also honor and support fellow Asheville breweries with a mixed 4-pack of rotating Asheville beer from other breweries.

“Over the years Thirsty Monk helped introduce many of our Asheville breweries to the community and we recognize they are also feeling the same pain we are now feeling,” said Thirsty Monk CEO Barry Bialik in a letter to staff.

As developments on this pandemic continue to change the status of all service businesses by the hour, Thirsty Monk urges guests to buy beer, food, and merchandise to-go this weekend while the company still has opportunities to serve guests. In Denver and Portland, Thirsty Monk will discontinue service for the time being. “We will all remain strong and rely on our inner grit to get through this together. And we will. We will grow, we will be stronger, and we will all be wiser people once we are on the other side of this world crisis,” adds Bialik.
