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.

Last stop of the night after a short-ish tour of downtown Asheville. Pretty cool old restaurant and bar with two levels. Downstairs is more of just your normal restaurant space and upstairs they have a number of bar games like darts and a handful of pool tables. Light stained wood everywhere. Plenty of seating and standing room. Very welcoming feel.

Beer list was good, though not amazing. Lots of local beers, certainly. A number from Asheville itself as well as North Carolina in general. Pretty large tap list as well, if nothing else. I believe the beers upstairs and downstairs are pretty much the same.

Could certainly see this being sort of a go-to, local hangout if I lived in the area.

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. (Last visited 6 February 2014).

> 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.
