I could see this place from my room at the Aloft, very convenient. We stayed upstairs for RBWG 2014, but the downstairs is a bit larger, more tables, and different selection. Staff kept up amazingly well despite the crowd, and even remembered most people’s names. Tasty pizza. Worthwhile stop.

A nice pub and restaurant with a good selection of local beers. Barley’s kindly made their upstairs room available for the welcome reception of the RBWG 2014 and had put on a very good line up. I’ve eaten here in the past and seem to remember that the food was very good.
(Last visited 6 February 2014).

Barley’s welcomed RBWG ’14 with open arms by providing their upstairs bar for us to hold our first night meet and great. The tap beer selection featured many local and regional offerings, and the bar tender was attentive to us all. We dined on fresh baked pizzas that really hit the spot. As we left, we found the downstairs area fully engulfed in imbibers. This is a great place for a pizza and some beers.

Just was upstairs which is a decent bar with a bunch of pool tables and other games. Service is great, the bartender had a much better palate than I did when we shared some beers. Large interesting tap list and bottles to boot. Food and prices were average.

October 2011. Got tips on this place from more than one local and wasn’t disappointed. Solid lineup of regional and other quality US beers, combined with a great pizza -- sounds like a plan to me! Shared a pizza made with spent grain dough and couldn’t complain a bit. Lots of North Carolina beers to choose from also made me a happy camper. Definitely would go back.

Located on the main drag in downtown Asheville. Nice wooden bar and high ceilings. They had 20 taps and over 40 bottles of mostly local and regional craft beer. The pizza was decent by local standards. As with most things here the prices were incredibly reasonable.

Visited during RBWG 2014. Very good spot. Lots of solid beers available on tap with a good emphasis on local breweries. Friendly staff. Good value. The pizza was damn good. Convenient location. Definitely worth a stop during a tour of Asheville - for a pizza meal would be a good call.

> Old school beer tavern with extensive NC local tap list
>> Conveinent downtown location, easy walk from our hotel. Two story ’tavern’ feel with big open spaces, picnic table style seating downstairs and pool tables upstairs. Two bars and tap systems, top and bottom floor. Tap list was extensive, 30+ with a focus on local beers. However, nothing was too interesting to me at least. Highland, Duck-Rabbit, Lonerider, Olde Hickory. Didn’t see any Burial or Wedge or other Asheville beers. Didn’t try the food. Overall, I’m sure it is a great place, but I don’t see any reason to go here given that Wicked Weed is across the street and has better beer, food, and ambiance.

This is pretty much the bar to go to in Asheville for a variety of beers. This is the smallest Barley’s location, but they have, by a very large margin, the best draughts of the three. NC has been going nuts on the high alcohol beer ever since they passed that legistlation and this place reflects that well. They always have a good selection of fine ridiculous American brews. I even got mead on draught here once. I had some really tasty humus here one night as well. I always come to Barley’s when I’m in Asheville to see what wonderful offerings they may have on their ever-changing draught menu.

We skipped the food and headed to the bar. There was a flight available which consists of local brews. The selection was rather nice, service alright and beers quite good. But I can’t see the reason why it’s Asheville’s 5th best rated place in RB.
