Barleys has always been a great place for beer and food. With around 50 taps there is always a nice selection. While they always have a lot of local brews they do get some from all over the country and world. There is a nice laid back atmosphere but it can definately get crowded with waits for food not uncommon. If all you want is beer head upstairs for a different tap selection. While smoking is allowed it is rarely smoky except at peak busy periods. I tend to get the same bar tender who is very knowledgeable and friendly. Since NC changed it beer laws they also now get high gravity beers which disapear quickly and are only poured in 10 oz glasses. The pizza is great. The only thing I would like to see iproved is the bottled beer selection which is a bit ordinary. Of course Asheville has other places for that. I used to drive 110 miles to go here so it is safe to say I like the place alot.

I kind of stumbled upon this place while in Ashville a couple of weeks ago. Started in the downstairs bar and was very pleased with the selection of brews. After two downstairs I decided to go upstairs and to my surprise they had Foothills Sexual Chocolate Imperial Stout. Wow! That alone was worth the trip. The only thing that would have made this better was if it was non smoking.

Hey, it’s Barley’s. What can I say? Two story building with a good selection of different taps on each floor. Good pizza, too. I think I prefer the atmosphere of the Knoxville Barley’s, but the beer at this one is way better. Good place.

We end up here everytime we are in town. Stick with the ’za or calzone and enjoy the massive selection of locals on tap. Head up stairs to grab the rarer and higher grav. stuff. Prices are rediculously cheap. I guess I notice a difference coming from Atlanta.

Visited mid afternoon/early evening on a Thursday. Plenty of room in a spacious joint, although getting more crowded when we left. The monthly beer feature was North Carolina so, whilst there were "only" 27 listed, they were nearly all from NC, which was just what I wanted. Including Pisgah, Catawba Valley, French Broad, Foothills, Highland, Duck Rabbit & Edenton. Efficient service. Solid food. Have to go back tomorrow to get some more beers.

Visited here on a Sunday afternoon in mid June. Nice little downtown pizza place with plenty of local taps. Not sure if there was 40 - but I’ll let a local make that call. Ordered a Duck Rabbit Porter - instant vinegar - brought it to attention of server and she told the manager and they agreed - curiously - they just changed the keg on Friday....need to look into their distributor - or is it thier taps?. Everything else I had was just a little "off" or perhaps it was the vinegar lingering - but did not want to be the whiney old man at the bar. Food was good - had a jerk chicken sandwich - pretty tasty. Recommended - hope the dirty tap thing was just an abberation.

Visited on a Thursday night. It was crowded, but there was no wait for a table. A jazz band was playing. They have about 40 taps with some good selections not available down in Durham including 4 from Catawba Valley and 3 from Pisgah. My girlfriend and I shared a pizza, which was good, but not spectacular. Service was excellent. Our waitress provided us with a map of downtown Asheville and pointed us to a few places we might not otherwise have found.
