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.

I went in the middle of the week so it was pretty dead in there. The place is split into a downstairs and upstairs and they are in no way connected. You have to cash out downstairs and they have no idea what’s on tap upstairs. Not a huge deal. A nice clean place with a focus on locals, it is located in the heart of stuff in Downtown Asheville. I did not eat there so I cant comment on the food. Its a good visit!

This place can vary. When very busy and crowded, the service suffers and it gets noisy. They have live music and at times I’ve found it hard to hear that over the crowd noise. But the food is decent if not great and the beer selection is pretty good, mixing favorites with some of the better local brews.

Had lunch here and a couple beers while visiting Asheville. This place was within walking distance to the parking garage we parked in and in close proximity to several other great beer stops as well. Inside the place is basicaly one large area with tables a good sized bar off to the side. It was moderately busy but still plenty of empty seats. They do have an upstairs they utilize for the evening with I think pool/darts, another bar, and additional space to hang out. Since we had pizza the night before at Asheville Pizza & Brewing we didn’t try it here. Rather, we all ordered sandwiches, pitas, things like that. Everyone was happy with their meal. Service was good. The beer menu was impressive with lots of locals on draft. I had a Foothills Hefe and Catawba Valley Teds Farmhouse and there were quite a few others I would have liked to try. They do flights of some locals too; I recall seeing an IPA taster option. Good place; bet there’s a good night scene too.
