Good selection on tap that changes out frequently. Unfortunately too many of the taps dedicated to macros or non-interesting micros. Had Boulevard Coffee Ale on draft, which was a nice treat. Food variety is pretty good, and some of it is downright awesome (wings, pizzas). Ambiance is so-so; gets a large sports crowd.

Decent little beer bar in suburban Kansas City. Taps as shown but too many bmc taps. Had some crafts online though enough for a stop by when in the area. Big huge wings. Decent.

Excellent value, the prices were a surprise. Flights are very generous, 5 for 9.00 or premium 3 for 9.00.
Its a sports bar, large, music is mostly loud pop, ample seating, friendly wait staff.
Selection is very good. Not up to the best cross the border due to availability issues but very good.

Stopped in for lunch after a long day on the road. Atmosphere is on the ’chain’ side of things, as if you could find a Barley’s in every ville next to the Chilis. You’d be hard-pressed to feel at home here. Still, it’s clean and they have a patio for when the weather suits. Selection is excellent and you can find all the popular local micros here, alongside a good cross section of national craft brews and international standards.Whether all the kegs are fresh would require multiple visits to ascertain, but both of my pints were primo. Service is competent, beer knowledge wasn’t really tested on this visit. Barley’s does seem to attract knowledgeable customers. A must-visit when in KC for the selection alone.

There aren’t many beer bars in KC and this is one of the better places to go. Having said that it lacks a lot. Have been here a few times (less than 5). First it has a horrible chain feel, akin to the Applebees and TGIFs. Its owned by KC Hops so that makes sense. Food looks similarly commercial and bland. The selection is large, lots of taps, unfortunately rarely any rare kegs. Come here only if you know something special will be on tap otherwise you will find a lot of New Belgium, Goose Island, and Blvd common to the stores. Sometimes something special will appear but check in advance. They used to do brewery nights with speakers but have not seen that in a while. As with all KC places the Belgian taps, which they dedicate a few to, are very pricey.

I was here the night that Michael Jordan was inducted into the Hall of Fame. Brought back lots of memories of how great he was. Anyway. A nice neighborhood pub. 3 or 4 guys working behind the bar. They offered beer flights, pricey ($9ea), but nice. Had a few of those. Overall, the beer selection was very nice. About 100 taps, a cask pull as well I think. Great Divide Yeti, Lips of Faith, Odell, Bells, Goose Island, and Boulevard. A ate a chicken tender wrap. I was tasty. Odd crowd, lots of cougars about the place. 11sept09

Barley’s gives a wide selection of beers. The Mug club membership provides more value and perks, especially on Thursdays, Sundays and Mondays. The outdoor patio w tables gives refuge to the smokers.

Stopped in last night for a brew and some food. Nice bar atmosphere. 99 taps and real nice bottle selection. Very detailed beer list broken down by style then listed as draft or bottle. Mostly regional micros and normal marcos on tap. Had whole Boulevard Smoke Stack 750s line available. Had Duvel, BCS and several other high quality brews available in bottles. With I could of had a couple more. Had the buffalo Chicken wrap for dinner which was pretty good and prices were decent. Would visit often if I lived in area.

I’ve enjoyed Barleys for a few years and what better a place to relax and enjoy from a hundred draft beers or more than fifty bottled beers. The food is great too!
