    Recognized as one of the best beer bars in the world, they tap over 1,000 different beers a year. Be sure to check out the unique & charming ambiance of the Belgian Bar in the basement.

    Downstairs section. Great beer selection & knowledgeable bartender. Do not dare order a Miller Lite. Beer is kinda expensive but its about quality. Cool bathroom art. Beer menu differ from upstairs

    Go to the downstairs bar for sure...ask for Melissa. She's wicked nice and super knowledgable on their Belgians. Great spot to hang with friends and enjoy a great brew!

    My favorite of the many establishments we visited on our trip to Asheville. The Fat Tire Pretzel Bites were delicious as were several of the drafts we tried. Thumbs up!

    We got the local flight thinking we could make our own sample combo- false. Blueberry and Highland Gaelic are yummy, but the others are sub par. I'd say grab a friend and order full beers to share.

    There's not a lot of table service. Your best bet is to walk up to the bar and place your order. All of the staff are actually very friendly, just busy!

    Cool craft beer dive-bar. Lower-level is much cooler place to hang during hot summer months. Solid selection of local, craft beers.

    Top of the monk serves amazing cocktails, be prepared to wait at least five solid minutes for two, but they will be perfectly crafted.

    The 2 tacos for $7 is a delicious steal. On a hot day it's still cool and usually much quieter in the basement bar.

    A great bar - especially for beer fans. Belgians downstairs, American craft beers up. Get a flight or half pours to cover more ground.

    This place has an awesome Belgium beer selection, but no TVs. We wanted to watch futbol so that was our only complaint!

    Huge beer selection that is always some of the best ones out at any time. They get stuff others just never can

    With 36 beers on tap and more than 150 bottles, this American Pint House & Belgian Beer Bar is an ideal velue to celebrate #NCBeerMonth.

    Pizza was great, lots of good toppings. I got ground beef, mushrooms and avocados. Fries were okay, but not great. Good beer selection according to my beer drinking companions.

    Disclaimer; I'm visiting from out of town, so I'm not a local. Downstairs: the bartenders are knowledgeable, but not very personable. Seating is awkward at bar (uncomfortable) and tables (too small).

    The Belgian bar downstairs is the town secret. You will not be disappointed.

    Downstairs Belgian bar is very low-key, recommended for any date on which you're not supposed to be seen.

    Bring your friends and order the pint of bacon. Like the menu says, don't overthink if.

    I used to love this place...but food took over an hour, was cold, and they have no wait staff/bartenders for a busy Saturday, menu is not as good as used to be. Only good for beer now.

    If you've never eaten here be aggressive at the bar to order your drinks or food...the bartender doesn't care

    Service upstairs was not good. Especially during the summer. It was way too hot up be comfortable so we had a beer and left. Wish we had gone downstairs.
