I would imagine the this is the single best place to find great beer in SC north and west of Columbia. A haven for interesting taps. One hell of a selection and they even have the every now and then cask offering.

A nice, comfy, wood covered interior. Smaller than the Asheville location but none the less welcoming and inviting.

We always had decent service and from what I recall we have only eaten here once, we usually eat at Blue Ridge, but from what I recall it was solid pub grub.

But, this place is first and foremost about the beer and in that arena Barley's-Greenville does a great job. If you are in the area and are looking for a quality spot to have a brew look no further. Honestly, you cannot go wrong!

I popped into Barley's on a business trip to Greenville, SC which doubled as an intelligence-gathering trip prior to relocation to the city. To say that I was pleasantly surprised would be a major understatement. From the beer selection, to the quality of the food, to the mind-blowing friendliness of the staff and other patrons, Barley's compares favourably to the Philly hangouts I'm going to miss after moving down south. Two thumbs up in Z-formation!

Stopped at Barley's on a road trip from Atlanta to Charlotte this afternoon. My only disappointment was their website showed they had Mexican Cake on tap and I was really looking forward to trying it for the first time, but the keg had kicked a while back. Aside from that, the experience was great! I had a cajun chicken sandwich that was very tasty. The beer selections was outstanding. I had a couple good selections in bottles and tried a great local coffee/chocolate stout from a local Greenville brewery, Quest, which is only distributing via keg right now. I picked up a 2009 Backwoods Bastard from their reserve/cellar list to enjoy later. I will definitely be stopping by here again the next time I go through town.

Excellent place to go in Greenville for the beer enthusiast. The lower level is the main eating area and has a slightly different tap list than the upstairs. Upstairs is the late night hangout with pool tables. The food is good and the prices are reasonable. Tasting nights are frequent. Take the time to go around the corner to The Greenville Beer Exchange.

By far, this is the best beer bar in Upstate South Carolina if not the entire state itself. A wide selection coupled with cheap and delicious eats makes for a wonderful experience that doesn't break the bank. The selection is wonderful, but also incorporates a reserve list in case you're looking for something a bit more vintage. Example: '09 KBS.

If you're in Greenville, this is a must do whether you're a craft beer fan or just someone looking for a cheap slice of pizza. Put Barley's on your agenda.

One of the best beer lists I have seen at a restaurant. They won some kind of national award that was presented by Stone. I don't know the details, but it sounds pretty impressive for a restaurant in Greenville, SC. They were named "Most Arrogant Bar" They must be doing something right.
I am assuming this location is a franchise of the Barley's in Asheville, NC. I think Greenville has the better of the two.
While scoping out the joint, I notice some obnoxious amounts of rare beer above the bar. The 20 six-packs of Bell's Batch X,000 , and about 24 bottles of DFH WWS stood out to me.
The server reassured me that they were indeed unopened after I expressed doubt, then she informed me they were not for sale. Apparently the owner is a showboat. I would rather you not display your beer cellar if you do not entertain offers.
I'll be back though, great place.

After countless trips to Greenville, finally made it a point to stop by here with the family. We went for lunch, so I didn't get as great an opportunity to "explore" their beer choices. My wife and I each got a slice, and what a slice it was! These are monster slices so I was happy about that. I also got their chili, which was highly recommended to me, and it was good. Their tap list was great, a list any restaurant would be proud to have. Good number of bottles as well. They have a "cellar" full of all sorts of vintage ales which is a really nice option. Above the bar was a good number of what they had available. The notable ones that jumped off to me were Batch 9,000, Batch 10,000 and KBS. Not sure the year of the KBS, but does it really matter? I'm sure you pay a premium for those options among others, but it's nice to have the option to snag some highly rated beer. I've been in the upstairs before to play pool, but didn't venture up there this time. All-in-all, this is a great place to stop for some good food, and excellent beer.

After visiting Greenville for the last ten years or so, finally got to check this place out, it may be in greenvilles beer Mecca block, with gbx behind it and the trappe door next door.
About a 20 minute wait at 7 on a Friday however we chose to sit at the big bar. It was a little cramped as they tried to squeeze a few more tables in than they prob should. Very extensive beer menu in both bottle and on draft. They also have a reserve list of aged beers.
We got two beers a piece an appitzer and the lady got a calzone, and I ordered a slice of pizza. The pizza slice was big enough for a small meal. Total was about 35 bucks.
Had a good conversation with the bar tender, she was fairly new only worked there a few months, but was pretty beer knowledgable and actually suggested I not try a beer because it was meh.
Didn't have a chance to check out the bar upstairs but will on the next trip.
