It has a great WOW factor for a beer bar. Two leveled bar with a good bar atomphere. Not overly loud and large selection of draft and bottles. They even have a few one off beer every once in a while. While I was there they were the only place in the carolinas to get Gubna at that time. Atleast the first one. Food was fantastic for a limited menu but they do it well. Even I only ate one piece of pizza. They are huge and the toppings are literaly piled up high. We had stuffed mushrooms and they were fantastic as well. Service was great and the bartenders knew what they were talking about. I could tell this was a place were the local BAs hang out which shows alot. Nice Place!

good pizza, great selection of beer...always something new to try either on tap or from the bottle. 2 floors with different taps on each. they host events several times monthly, usually a seasonal beer, beer dinner or cask release. it would be nice if they kept a better updated website with more info on their events though. prices can be a bit high, but for the more expensive, higher ABV brews they usually offer a smaller serving, which is nice. i've found the service can be hit or miss, but they are always pretty knowledgable. best place for beer in greenville, though, without question.

Very nice bar right in the middle of beautiful downtown Greenville. Too bad its 30 min away from Clemson.

Incredible tap and bottle selection, way over 100.

What I had/saw: Founder's Imperial Stout, Terrapin Depth Charge, Oaked Yeti/Espresso Oak Yeti, Rochefort 10, BORIS, Storm King, + much much more.

The waitstaff was friendly, pretty knowledgeable about their selections, and the prices were pretty good (most taps $4-6, BORIS/Storm King were very pricey) Rochefort 10 was $10

I will definitely be returning to this bar, and the good thing is that you can go in, buy a bottle, and take it home, so if your on the go, or you spot something rare, take it to go as well.

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!

Great place to go check out if ever in upstate SC. I have been here several times now visiting family, and the selection of beer is exceptional. Custom ordered beer flights are only 12, and this consists of a 66 beer tap selection. Service is great, always an event going on. I;ve met the Delerium brewmaster here, and there was a cool pre-Beer wars movie party.Bartenders are extremely helpful, and knowledgeable. I actually got the last glass of Kentucky Breakfast Stout on tap here avaliable!
Pizza is excellent, well made crust(an essential critique) fresh toppings, good sandwiches as well. Price is another standout feature as well, as I have just moved down to SC briefly after living in NY and to see a goblet of Triple Karm for $6.00 is astounding, many pints are only $4.
At times this place can be a bit crowded, too many young kids,(but after enough great beer it's manageable).
Take time to check out the upstairs bar as well

what an unassuming yet absolutely amazing beer destination. the food menu was small but the pizza with jamacain jerk chicken and pineapple was excellent! The bartenders were pleasant and the right level of attentive. The beer selection.... It seemed like a wall of beer taps 40 feet long with 2 coolers of bottled high end singles and the second floor had a separate line of oak aged taps. and they have plans to expand?

From my NH perspective, prices were very reasonable and the beer was spot on tasty. It would take me a few months to get through their lineup after work and that doesn't count the rotating taps. Definitely worth a visit if you're anywhere near the area.

We visited Barley's on the way back from Atlanta.

thanks to the reviews I read I knew there was a upstairs. I tried 2 from downstairs then headed upstairs for the others and FREE POOL. My 20 year old son was amazed...he had never been to a place that didn't have Bud or Miller Lite on tap...impressive. ;)

Pizza was very good and BIG! service was good and knowledgeable, my only gripe was not being able to order beers from upstairs while eating downstairs...but I simply walked up and paid for what I wanted and walked back down.

This is the second Barley's I have been to and this location is a slightly smaller version of the one in Asheville, but with the same great beer and pizza. Went on a Monday night so it was not crowded, but the service was excellent, our waitress knew how to pour a beer, which is a plus. Had the Chicken Thai pizza, which was awesome and tried several different beers, some on tap, some in bottles. This is a great place for a beer lover and I will hit this place up several times while in Greenville.

This is the place for beer in Greenville. There are two floors downstairs is open for lunch and dinner with tables outside and a long wall of taps. Upstairs opens in the evening and has a smaller tap wall with billiards and darts. The tap selection upstairs and downstairs does vary so check out your menue or ask your server. The beer selection is the best and they offer just about anything your heart could desire. They also frequently change some of the line up. They also host a lost of events with terrapin and Harpoon. Last but not least the pizza is the best in town.

Barley's is the place for beer in Greenville. Between upstairs and down, the tap selection is extremely good. The pizza is always excellent as well. Having tried Barley's in Asheville and Greenville on successive weekends, the pizza was quite a bit better in Greenville. The waitstaff in Greenville told us that the water is more consistent there and easier to work with.

Had Terrapin Imperial Rye, Stoudt's ESB, and Rogue Locker Stock Love and Hoppiness IPA - all very good and served in a non-chilled glass. Signs were up for the Weyerbacher release party this week.

Beer-crawling through Greenville with Blue Ridge at one end and Liberty at the other, Barley's is the anchor.

Sothern Tier and Stone now being served!
