I will leave my previous rating here. WE went back and had one hell of a server the beer was good the food was good live entertainment. Man the differnece was night and day. I love this place now.===Made the mistake of coming here on a Saturday evening. The downstairs area was full. The hostess made it clear she had no time to answer questions, you either needed to go upstairs for smoking and no food or stay downstairs and wait on a table or 1st come 1st serve at the bar. Ended up going upstairs. One bartender trying to serve the entire area (about 30-40 people). First beer came in plastic cup he had glasses but said the dishwasher was broken. Wouldn’t give up a glass so I left. I hope to go back earlier in the day someday when they’ve got time to fool with you. They have a huge selection but if its crowded get what you really want first don’t start out small hoping to go to bigger beers later, you may never get there.

This is pretty much the bar to go to in Asheville for a variety of beers. This is the smallest Barley’s location, but they have, by a very large margin, the best draughts of the three. NC has been going nuts on the high alcohol beer ever since they passed that legistlation and this place reflects that well. They always have a good selection of fine ridiculous American brews. I even got mead on draught here once. I had some really tasty humus here one night as well. I always come to Barley’s when I’m in Asheville to see what wonderful offerings they may have on their ever-changing draught menu.

With 55 taps, Barley’s is by far the best place to go in Asheville for draught beer in terms of pure selection. The food is really pretty good too. There aren’t any house brews but the Highland Brewing Company lives in the basement. There are a couple of nice pool tables upstairs and smoking and more taps. The pool ain’t free, but the price on the beer is right. They have some $3 local pints (and also some high gravity $5.00 12 oz pours). Also, I recommend the nachos. They good!

Definately my favorite place for beer in Asheville. I’ve been there 5 or 6 times (always during the afternoon). Comfortable, laid-back atmosphere. OK service. Great beer selection!!! Very tasty pizza that beats other local places (no names here). I like that they highlight a "Brewery of the Month".

this is scored vs. other beer bars in the asheville / western NC area. very large and spacious inside. free music most nights of the week. was nearly empty when we went there today. we were the only ones at the bar, so service was pretty good until someone came in to order a pizza to go and changed their order about 5 times as our server tried to get away from him. good selection of beers on tap and in bottles. only had nachos - and as far as bar nachos go they were good.

Huge open area greets you as you see the bar in the distance. As expected, crowd is the eclectic mix that embodies Asheville. Staff a little jaded and slow. Better than average bar food, and all the local beers are available. And that is just downstairs... This is THE public house in town.

the food was decent, the beer selection was a nice surprize. The service was slow for an average Saturday night.

The premier beer joint in Asheville. Its a great place to start your evening, or kill a whole night. Good food, and the beer selection is limited only by NC’s 6% alcohol laws. As a bonus, the Highland beers are extremely fresh - the brewery is in the basement. Re-rate, Feb 2006. The 6% abv cap is gone and the selection is amazing. Every local, it seems, has a hi-abv offering here at Barleys. Lots of really good stuff here.
