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 is a bar and pizzeria all in one so from a unique beer selection standpoint, it falls short. They have a lot of craft local North Carolina beers as well as some New Belgium brewing company beers. This place though is a great place to watch a game and get a beer!

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.

Cool place. Stopped in a for a quick beer and a snack. A little crowded, but well worth the stop. A good local draft list of local beers, decent food. Worth the stop.

Much better Barley’s than Greenville, totally opposite spots. This location is clean and bright inside, huge bar to sit out, comfortable feel. The draft list focuses more on local state beers, which dominate the board of about 75% of the beers. They offer 4 sampler sets to tick. Service was ok, not overly friendly on a slow day, catered to the locals and lunch crowd.

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.

> 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.

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.

Kickoff site for RBWG 2014, thanks for having us! A nice area downstairs, but we were upstairs where there were a few pool tables, dart boards and plenty of space. Bartenders were very helpful and friendly. A nice selection of taps that are both local and non-locals. Food was pretty good too. A nice spot right down town and walking distance from many other hot spots.

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.

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.
