vibe: 4 | quality: 3.5 | service: 3 | selection: 4 | food: 3.5

Visiting Barleys was my first trip into downtown Columbus. The environment was nice, the food was OK, and the beers were pretty good. I was satisfied, but I was hardly blown away by my experience here.

Ambience was nice...it has a nice bar feel to it that is neither scummy/divey nor snobby while making everyone feel at home.

The first thing I noticed was that the clientele was mostly female, which I think was driven by an event downtown, and not by my other hypothesis (that this is the first lesbian brewpub ever!).

I'd read in other reviews that the beers are approachable. I noticed this immediately when I sipped the 4 Seas DIPA. DIPAs (and everything else Double/Imperial) aren't supposed to be approachable! For a brewpub, this place seemed to have a lot of choices of beer, including some guest taps.

Food menu had some higher priced items than I expected. I wasn't that impressed with my fish & chips, but I wasn't much in the mood for food, so I wouldn't take too much from that.

Service was adequate but hardly beer savvy.

If this is the best brewpub in Columbus, I am a shade disappointed, but not dissatisfied with my visit. I'd go back, but because of adequacy in all departments rather than excellence in beer or any other specific area.
