This is the biggest Barley’s and it’s also in good shape. It’s in a nice downtown area. There are plenty of beers to try here, mainly micros from around the area. I think the frustrating 6% law and the distributors prevent the beer selection from being better than it is, but it’s definitely satisfactory. There are plenty of pool tables upstairs which are spread out nicely and some dart boards as well. - I’d just like to add that I’ve visited here since SC raised the 6% lmit. Barley’s is going nuts already. Nearly half of their selection was dedicated to higher alcohol craft brews on my visit. This did seem to subtract from some regional stuff, but, I’d say the newer lineup of beers is of much higher quality. [August 19, 2008] I’ve visited a few times since the cap on beer has been raised and it has made a world of difference. This is now my favorite Barley’s location due to the sheer number of quality beer on tap. Not a staggering amount of regional stuff is available, but it is great to see things like Double Simcoe and Racer 5 on tap. They regularly have limited offerings from Brooklyn and Rogue. The ambiance makes for a really enjoyable bar visit. Plenty of pool tables along with foosball, table hockey, and even shuffleboard are available. The upstairs is very spacious and not nearly as crowded as downstairs. My bartender was particularly awesome yesterday. He took a chance engaging me in very vulgar conversation, which luckily I found to be quite amusing. Good amount of cajones or perhaps just lack of concern on his part. Great service, regardless.

Not a fan of this place at all. Big open room space, old not redone just doesn’t look great. Its so loud in here you can barely think, let alone talk to someone at your table. Despite a slow night our server was frenzied, mixing up tickets, and not even getting a beer order from us for 10 minutes. Draft selection is meh, a combination of locals which is great with easier to find widely distributed beers. They offer a sampler of 6 of anything which is a nice touch to sample locals. The problem was the locals on tap all sucked. They had an outdated vintage list with good stuff, but the best stuff was gone. Please update more often then every month, this was dated 3/15/2014. Got an app, and the food didn’t necessitate sticking for dinner. Might be the best pizza place in town, so if you want food head over, otherwise go elsewhere.

Visited here in late June ’09 on a Friday evening. Place was packed - not even able to get a seat at the bar to eat - so I came back later and partook in the upstairs bar. Probably had about 20 - 25 taps upsatirs. Some decent stuff - a few I had not hand - Sierra Nevada Brown Saison and Southern Tier Big Red. Afew other uncommon ones as well - not just your usual micros and imports. One dissapointment though - did not see one tap of a North or South Carolina brewer - not sure whose fault that is - brewer, distributor, establishment or perhaps the consumer? Oh well. Loud, friendly, clean cut crowd who seemed to enjoy their beer - heard someone asking. Worth a stop if in Greenville - a decent little city.

Nice patio space right off of Main St. Inside is kinda crowded downstairs and kinda too sparse upstairs. Nice tap selection and beer list kept close to up to date. Didn’t eat but the menu looked similar to the Knoxville location and pizza around me looked tasty.

visited 7/10/11.

this place seems to be run by derelicts, hippies and general malcontents... but i like it! who’da thunk a bar in the middle of basically nowhere would be packed in the middle of the summer on a sunday afternoon?!... plus 60+ taps!... you kidding me?... great pizza!... great atmosphere upstairs and down!.... i’d be here every day if i lived close. this stupid pizza shop makes every ’beer bar’ in phx look amateur.

my only complaint is the crazy expensive bottle reserve list.

A large downtown bar with very nice atmosphere. We sat down at the upstairs bar, which wasn’t the slightest bit busy. In fact, the two of us were the only people there for quite a while. The beer selection is between marginal and good, with enough things I don’t see at home to keep it interesting for me. The service was great, though I suspect the bartender was mostly just bored and looking for someone to talk to. Regardless, I have no complaints.

Nice place, good selection and delicious pizza - one downer is the service can be a bit supercilious and condescending.

I visited on a Friday night and the place was packed. 70 beers on tap and over 100 bottles. This place has a great selection. There was an upstairs area with pool and 20 or so beers on tap. No food allowed upstairs. Restaurant was downstairs with the rest of the taps and bottles. The pizza is some of the best pizza I’ve had in a long time. Crunch crust and the top wasn’t overcooked. Service was slow. It was Friday and it was busy. So be it. I will be visiting again. This might be my Friday night hangout on Friday nights.

A 2-story venue with lots of taps upstairs and even more downstairs. Also carries a large selection of bottles. Rare beers routinely come thru here, as do various special events. I’ve enjoyed beers here with both Sam C. (Dogfish Head) and Greg Koch (Stone), not to mention a good variety of friends and strangers. Friendly atmosphere. Probably THE best craft beer bar in SC.
