This is for sure the best beer bar in town. A great selection of beer on tap and a massive selection of bottles. The often have some more rare choices on tap which is great. The food is pretty bad though. Even the pizza, which they are known for, is ok at best. The one thing I really liked there was the meatballs. Price for food is average and price for beer is pretty good. Overall a great beer bar but if they improved the food it would be out of this world.

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.

Great taproom in downtown with some pretty decent food. When I lived in Greenville, this was my favorite stop.

good pizza, great selection of beer...always something new to try either on tap or from the bottle. 2 floors with different taps on each. service can be hit or miss, but they are always pretty knowledgable. best place for beer in greenville, though, without question.

Very nice bar right in the middle of beautiful downtown Greenville. Too bad its 30 min away from Clemson.
Incredible tap and bottle selection, way over 100.
What I had/saw: Founder’s Imperial Stout, Terrapin Depth Charge, Oaked Yeti/Espresso Oak Yeti, Rochefort 10, BORIS, Storm King, + much much more.
The waitstaff was friendly, pretty knowledgeable about their selections, and the prices were pretty good (most taps $4-6, BORIS/Storm King were very pricey) Rochefort 10 was $10
I will definitely be returning to this bar, and the good thing is that you can go in, buy a bottle, and take it home, so if your on the go, or you spot something rare, take it to go as well.

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.

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.

Good place to eat, or just hang out upstairs playing some pool or darts. Pizza is good - for South Carolina. Easliy the best selection of beers in the area, with a good variety and a good number offered. Note that different beers are available upstairs and downstairs.

best place in greenville to get beer. honestly, the best selection i’ve seen in a while. only bar outside of New York to carry Brooklyn Blast IPA on tap! not to mention the rest of their great taps. the beer samplers are sweet. pizza is outstanding, and the spinach salad is a great way to start your meal. this place is a must if you find yourself in wonderful greenville, sc.

Clean and nice location. Solid beer selection with lots of seasonals and specials. Great pizza and appetizers. Knowledgeable staff. Can’t imagine there could be any place better than this in Greenville.

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.
