Not far from my house, so this is the mainstay for my wife and I. The bartenders are fantastic and ready to help when you want to try something new or different. Good rotating beer selection and many good brews that are there all the time. Servers and food are good for the price. They don’t gouge you with their prices. Last night I got a pint glass of Boulevards limited release Chocolate Ale for $3.50. A friend told me his local bar had 10 ounce glasses for $9.45. Way to go Barleys! If you are in the area, it is hard to beat.

Have visited a number of times. Can usually find a new beer or two. Service is usually good. Food is very good with decent pricing. Large number of taps and a nice bottle selection. Worth the visit.

nice place with a ton of taps. good mix of standards and rotating selections with a few pretty high quality brews mixed in. flights available, and service friendly and efficient. I preferred this location slightly over the Overland Park location.

Nice menue with beer by type. Also a list of current new beers. You can get a nice IPA sampler

I have been to the Barley’s Brewhaus in Shawnee several times, most recently midweek for a pint. The beer list is online here - http://shawnee.barleysbrewhaus.com/menu/beer-menu/ (no idea when last updated). Similar to the other Barleys location, the interior is Brewerania themed, with a nice classy wood panel feel. The bar area of this location is more separated from the restaurant than the other location. The beer selection is more or less the same as the Overland Park, though each location does different events - which can lead to some left over taps at one versus the other. If you are a local, this spot is worth hitting. If you are an out of towner, this place is probably only worth hitting if you are already on this side of town.
70 = ★★˝ (Locals should check it out, visitors with extended time)
I only use the total score, not the component parts.

Have visited this place many times over the years. Sort of upscale corporate brewpub feel (although it’d be properly referred to as a gastropub nowadays), rather conveniently located for folks in western Johnson County, Lenexa, Shawnee, etc., maybe even Olathe. It’s got 100 taps, usually featuring at least 1 beer that almost anyone would want pretty badly. Has had its share of stocking problems in times gone by, I’ve literally ordered a beer, then was told it was out, ordered another, told it was out, ordered another and told it was out. Not cool. Menu is re-worked every couple of years or so, and IMO the best thing here are the burgers. They are damn tasty. Service is hit or miss, I’ve had both great and mediocre servers. This is a great stop for anyone with a jones for craft beer on tap.

On a recent trip to KC, I was pleased to find this bar easy to get to with it being so close to I-435. The tap selection was solid with lots of seasonals and a few limited release brews. The bottle selection was also nice with a well stocked cooler. The beer menu was organized by beer style and I actually found it much easier to read than those that just have lists by country or by brewer. The food sampled was excellent and served very quickly. I will definitely return when in the area. I found it to be a clean and comfortable bar.

hey when you are stuck in Kansas...and one hopes never to be...this is a nice place to hang out. Good food, lots of good beers to choose from. Was really glad it was across the street from my hotel.

Prior to the opening of Flying Saucer, had the best selection of beer in the KC area. Soon to be a New Belgium Lips of Faith bar. They have recently started doing a monthly beer tasting that unfortunately have not had good attendance.
