Let's just get this out of the way first... I think Barley John's has the best food of any brewpub/beer bar in Minnesota. There. During the winter months, the outside of Barley John's doesn't look particularly beautiful. In fact, it's probably a little drab. Summer months seem to be more inviting as the hop bines begin to cover the trellis around the patio. Inside, the modest brewpub has a much more inviting aesthetic. Upon entry, you can't help but notice the cribbage tables made from tree trunks as well as the bar, also noticeably from a tree. The quality of both the beer and the food is very good. The service has always been excellent regardless of whether or not the place is busy. The selection and variety of food is both quite good... they typically have some other tasty beers on tap aside from their own, but truth be told, I'm always too interested in tasting their house beers to every try someone else's beer. As I said, the food is great. I particularly like their grilled pizzas, with Pizza H as my favorite: sun-dried tomato, roasted garlic, fresh spinach, fresh basil leaves, and goat cheese. Wonderful. If you're coming to Minneapolis/St. Paul, this is one of many required stops.
