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.

Exceptional service, great food. Decent tap selection of local brews. Conveniently across street from Aloft. Worth a stop for a bite and a beer but with so many craft beer options in town I’m not sure if I’d spend more than an hour here.

Visited during RBWG. It’s a pretty casual pizza place with about 20 solid taps. Bland layout and decoration. Beer options ranged from a handful of local micros to core offerings from some of the craft big boys. The pizza was decent, not spectacular. Prices were average for Asheville. Overall, it’s a decent spot, but Asheville’s blessed with such a good scene that I doubt I’ll have much reason to revisit this place.

We had the meet and greet for RBWG 2014 here. A nice old building. Nice layed back atmosphere. Good pizza and a nice tap list.

Great place in craft beer centric Asheville to have a pizza and taste a variety of local and WNC beers. Think of this as a fun place to stop and eat and also have some nice craft beers rather than a craft beer destination. Barlye’s fits in nicely to any 2 day or more Asheville beer tour.

11/27/13. Stopped in on 11/26 for a few beers and some appetizers. Well-lit restaurant type place, seems family friendly. Lots of brewery stuff all over the walls, etc. Seems a bit run-down. Old, scraped up wooden furniture and railings, etc. They did have some RateBeer best awards posted in the vestibule, which got a smile out of me!
Our waitress was friendly and prompt. I didn’t really ask any beer questions. I knew what I wanted.
We had garlic knots and black bean hummus. They were both fine. Nothing to phone home about.
Kind of pricey beers... must be a thing in this town. $6 for a flight of 4 small beers.
Overall, this place is convenient and has lots of taps, a great majority of which are from NC. I was able to tick 8 beers while I was there, and I think 7 were local or at least NC. Worth a stop if you’re nearby, but I won’t seek it out when I visit again.

Pleasant sunlit Saturday in the front window for a spell, but the rest of the place isn’t the hottest in terms of atmosphere. Looks well worn in its scuffed wood and breweriana. Cavernous, too. But a pleasantly relaxed feel, pretty good service, and a nice list of taps to choose from. Didn’t try the food but the pizza looked solid.

Interior is not too brightly lit, imparting a cozy and welcoming atmosphere. Music is just enough to notice, will not interfere with conversation. Bartender is alert and friendly but not too familiar, and makes you feel appreciated. Food is quite good - and they have a couple healthful options. Prices are very reasonable. Their emphasis is on local brews, and you can build your own flight if you prefer a sampler. Just one more reason Asheville is Beer City.

Really enjoyed Barley’s. Great food, and a cool atmosphere. The better beer is upstairs, and you can still order food up there, so that is the place to be. Pool tables and a couple of TVs so don’t go for big sporting events (I was there for the NLCS watching my Cards!). Had the Meat Eater pizza, great stuff!

The feel of the bar is almost that of a saloon which I dug. The service was top notch and I was offered a nice sample of La Folie when I was there. Also grabbed a flight of some nice local brews. Overall, the 12 or so taps will keep you interested and the prices were wallet-friendly. Another Asheville must stop.
