We have our Day 1 winner! Congratulations! 

We are kicking off our 12 Days of Grit-Mas with a wonderful gift from the Thirsty Monk, Asheville's premiere beer bar!

The Prize: $40 gift certificate and a growler of CocoNorm

The Details: With three locations around town, the Thirsty Monk has been serving patrons some of the best, tastiest, and rarest beers in the world since its flagship spot downtown at 92 Patton Ave. opened in 2008. The three-level building's ground floor pours a totally different selection from its downstairs level, a dedicated Belgian beer bar that feels both cave-like and cozy (and we mean that in the very best way). Two other locations--in Biltmore Park and Woodfin--serve up wonderful selections of their own, as well as the Monk's own world-class brews. The food menu elevates bar fare to a new high, with plenty of choices for picky eaters and kids.  

The winner of this giveaway will also take home a growler of CocoNorm, a Belgian-style porter infused with the flavor of tasted coconut. Clocking in at 6.4% ABV, it's dark, malty, and chocolatey, but not so heavy it will knock you down for the count. This Monk-brewed beer is one of our favorites, and it's a perfect, festive choice for the holiday season. 

Want to win? Enter your email below between 9 am and 12 midnight on Monday, December 12th! We'll notify the winner within 24-48 hours. 


Good luck!

This giveaway has ended. We'll inform the winner within 24-48 hours. Thanks for participating in Grit-Mas!
