Very simple, humble brewpub. But they serve up great beer. Lots of interesting spin offs. I got to try rosieís unaged old ale, which is very limited according to our server. Knowledgeable helpful staff. Ambitious brewer. Glad I got to visit and try some of their excellent brews.

Stopped in to try some brews on a visit to the Twin cities. A small dinner like place with a bit of a rugged interior. Only 6 beers on tap when I visited. No complaints about the service as our bartender was quite pleasant. I didnít try the food, but the chowder they had smelled delicious. A nice place but it didnít blow my mind or anything.

A bit of a dive, but in a cool kind of way. Food (pizza) was quite good and they had reasonably priced samplers of their current taps. Missed Dark Knight Returns by two days :(. The beers I did try were quite mediocre, unfortunately.

Small quant place just off the highway about 20 minutes away from twin cities.. 5 seats at the bar with 2 tables next to them but a huge patio, servers were on point and friendly. Flights are served on metal discs to let you know whats in the glass, food was good I had the barley brat with kraut it was tasty and their waffle fries were great. the best part of Barley Johns was the price.. for 9 samples, and a brat my total was 20 bucks. Amazing deal. All their beers were solid though the locals didnt seem to be crazy about the cask (Brunette with bay leaf)

Have large sample platters of their beers. Most of their beers are all really well made, pizza is decent. They have a really nice patio and very helpful waiters, great hang out!

Visited the last night of my Minneapolis trip, and left frankly disappointed. Seating is VERY limited, service was okay at best, beers were fine, but nothing terribly special, and the food was the worst I had at a beer bar in Minneapolis. I realize that Barley Johnís is beloved around here, but I really left unimpressed. I fully intend to come back to Minneapolis, but Barley Johnís wonít be on my list of stops. Disappointed.

It was kind of an inconvenient location if youíre in downtown Minneapolis, but it was worth the drive for the quality beers. Helpful warm service and good food. We had a good time here and really enjoyed the beers.

Stopped by after the Surly tour on November 26, 2011. Had heard good stuff about this place, but didnít know what to expect. It was shockingly small inside and somehow at 7 PM on a Saturday night we were able to get a table immediately. Six house beers and some guest taps. They do flights which is great. All six of the beers were very good, Barley Johns is the real deal, worth the trip for the great beers! The food was okay but took a backseat to the beer.

This brew pub is kind of in the middle of nowhere, but just off the interstate. It was dark and I didnít even see a town nearby, and it was kind of empty when we got there around 10:00 pm on a Saturday. Nevertheless, the service was friendly and the beers are great. Sampled some of the food and it was good, too. This is a must visit brew pub in the Twin Cities area.

Small brewpub on the northern end of town recommended to us by our waiter at Town Hall. Everything was wooden with hops hanging everywhere. The seating outside was probably five times larger than the seating inside and it was packed when we arrived. They offer four samplers for $6 and the had seven beers on tap having just run out of one. The beer was solid and the bartender did a good job juggling the patrons both inside and outside. Several groups were playing games in back so we dug the cribbage board out of the car and I lost to my wife by one point. No TVs and did not have any food. I echo the statement about missing this place, I think I missed it twice before I finally pulled into the right driveway but well worth my efforts!
