Similar to my experience with the Asheville Barley’s. Located in Greenville’s pretty hip downtown, packed to the gills on a Friday night. Sidewalk seating is available, which is pretty ideal for drinking way into the wee hours-- more quiet and cool than indoors. Lots of great beer on tap, split between two bars, but you can’t get beer from the upstairs bar if seated downstairs, a real bummer. Attentive service from the wait staff, though the hostess was a bit out of it. Decent pizza. Fun place.

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.
