Very nice brew pub, service is usually pretty good, and the range of house brews and guest drafts is great. Usually a cask conditioned beer available as well. And firkin friday’s are great. The food at the smokehouse is quite predictably barbecue inspired. And really is quite good, the beef brisket nachos are a personal favorite. I’ve never seen that place get all that crowded, and there is plenty of parking.

Great Place to sit and have some good local beer. Can sometimes be a little busy, but the local brews are always great. Pick up a Growler and take some home if you’re not from the area...or even if you are from the area.

Overall a pretty good experience @ Barley’s. Fairly busy for a Tuesday night, and Diane the bartender was friendly and attentive. I sampled most of the beers, including the cask pale ale, which was a bit funky compared to it’s draft tower counterpart. Maybe some cleaning issues? Anyway, the BBQ combo was pretty good, and the braised greens (collard, mustard, etc) were the best I’ve had at any restaurant to date. Unfortunately Diane would not start the Mini Cask Ale Fest early for me! The beers overall were good and drinkable, maybe not necessarily true to any sort of style, but they were very solid accross the board. I didn’t bother with the guest taps (Bells Oberon, Guinness, DFH 90 Min IPA, etc.). Overall a very positive experience @ Barley’s that would warrant a return trip. I also got the brisket quesidilla to go and it was just as good as the chicken and ribs in the BBQ combo. I would recommend stopping if in the neighborhood.

This Barley’s always has great Barley’s beer and great guest taps. The line up is different at each Barley’s, so you may want to plan on seeing both. Last time I was there they had Bell’s Third Coast, Jolly Pumpkin Oro de Calabaza and Coors Light on guest tap. Lots of TV’s and general bar atmosphere, but good staff and great service at the bar (where I always hang out when I go). Better than average bar food, and good barbeque for Ohio.

Barleys 2 is the little sister of Barleys ale house 1. The beer is top notch just as the other location, but the food is a little more consistant here with heavy leanings to barbecue. the location is a little more off the beatin’ track and the atmosphere is a little more subdued than the other location. I’ve been to this one only about 6-7 times since they opened compared to the hundreds of times I’ve been to ale house 1. but if you want Barleys beers they are just as good here as they are at the other locale. also the two locations have different offerings often so it might be worth driving out to it to see what’s on tap compared with the downtown stop.

Of the best breweries in town, if not THE best. Good food selection and taste, there is a ton to choose from.
Always have their own beers on tap + "guest" beers. They will sell growlers and half & quarter kegs too.
I can’t say enough good things about their beer. I love the Rye IPA when it’s in season!

My wife and I visited alehouse #2 tonight for our anniversary and it was a fantastic spot. The crowd was small on a Sunday night. Much individual attention from our server and a nice quiet booth made this a nice spot to visit. The beers were fantastic and samples were only 50 cents each. The pints seemed to be served at the perfect temperature and complimented the delicious barbecue and smoked food quite well. Both the ribs and the chicken were delicious. There are a few pool tables in the back and the wait staff seems to know their beers very well. No cigarette smoke anymore either due to the smoking ban in Columbus. I enjoyed this brewpub much...

Second time I have been there this month. I drove from Cincinnati to attend Mini Real Ale Fest and stopped after business meeting. Good beer selection both internal and external brews. I enjoy smoked food or a cigar with my brews and I can get both here. Well worth a visit.

10/1/07 Update. Now non-smoking. Still 2 beers on cask and 6 on tap. Guest beers included Oaked Arrogant Bastard-nice. Still a good place to get a beer, hang out and watch the games.
About 6 Barley’s beers on tap along with 10 guest beers.
Had the cask porter, well done.
ESB-a little hoppy for the style but a good beer.
This place is never packed although on a Tuesday it was fairly busy. A nice,laid-back place for a beer. A bit of a smokefest here though with lots of cigarrete smoke at the bar.

Second only to Barley's Ale House No. 1, the Smokehouse has more of a restaurant than a brewpub feel. Located off Rte 33, they have their own parking lot which is nice.
The atmosphere here is a little more open as well. The bar area is separate from the dining area, and you can see the brewing area from the bar. They have one pool table and a couple video games and TVs.
The Smokehouse carries pretty much the same beer selection as Ale House #1 but since they also brew on premises there is usually a little variation. They also usually have one guest tap along the lines of SNPA, Bell's Two-Hearted and the like.
The bar staff here knows their stuff and the wait staff know their beer better than most places that serve it.
The food here leans more toward BBQ, so ribs or BBQ chicken are a good bet.
