17 beers on tap, most are their own. Food is good, reasonably priced. Small and fairly crowded for 230pm on a Saturday but overall pretty solid place.

I love this place - easily one of the best brewpubs Iíve been to. The atmosphere is an odd mix of nerdy/alternative and Minnesota lumberjack. Iíve caught the servers playing Magic the Gathering when it isnít very busy, yet the majority of customers fall into the flannel wearing, bearded demographic. Cool vibe, and very Minnesotan, in my opinion. They make great beer (Obviously Rosieís and Dark Knight, but the Brunette is amazing too) and recently expanded their tap list. Food is great and really tastes like home cooking (with an edge). Recommend the pizzas, hummus, spicy peanut chicken salad, and the waffle fries (among the best Iíve ever had). If it wasnít such a long drive from St. Paul I would be here every day.

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. They tend to range between 8 and 12 beers available on tap with samplers available. No complaints about the service as our bartender was quite pleasant. Wife and I both really enjoy the food. A solid brewpub for the area.

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.
