Coming in for dinner on the second night in Asheville, NC, I saw this was rated high on BeerAdvocate, so thought we would check it out! Must have passed it twice before seeing it on the left hand side of the road, a couple blocks South from downtown. Great music coming from the street, there was no need to look at a menu.

We first started out at the bar, ordering a few beers but then the "Jazz Trio" (more like a Jazz Jam session) made us want a seat closer to the entertainment. Closed out at the bar and then sat closer to the front door and stage. Fun, music enthused crowd, we fit right in. The place was decorated with trophies (must have teams they sponsor) and tons of beer, obscure signs. Really felt inviting and cozy in here.

Quality was good. Could be cleaned up a bit but nothing wrong. The menu was a bit hard to read but the server was able to throw me in the right direction.

Both the bartender and the server were both great! Recommended their best in both the pizza and beer department. Always nice to be able to trust your server.

Had an extremely impressive tap line up. Enjoyed MANY of their beers and found myself tipsy. Good job Barley's! Luckily, everything is close in Asheville, so I didn't have to drive very far.

Enjoyed both the Garlic Knots and "Make-Your-Own" Calzone. The Garlic Knots could have been taken out of the oven a bit sooner (a bit burned) but the Calzone made up for it! Unreal. We added Pepperoni and Andouille Sausage to the already garlic, herbed, and multi cheesed Calzone.

With all of the pizza offered in Asheville, we took a break from the pie and the calzone made up for it! Try to come on a night they have music because the jazz was awesome the night we came. Another easy spot to get to from downtown, don't be afraid to explore!

Was not aware this was a chain, it does not change my rating though. This place did not feel like a chain and felt right at home in downtown Asheville. I watched a football game here and was there for the better part of 4-5 hours. Pizza was good as was the beer selection. Lots of local and other NC brews available to try. We visited the pool room/bar upstairs as well as the downstairs dining room. Great service that was friendly and attentive.

Just north of Wicked Weed on the opposite side of Biltmore Ave a very old building with Hardwood floors thru-out a beautiful ceiling and staircase that leads to another level pizza by the slice or pie with whatever toppings you want and loads of pub fare food, they have around 40 taps with emphasis on local brews they offer flights and have a great regional tap list this is a must stop both for food and brew if you are downtown nice service with tasty foods and tap list

We tried to get into Wicked Weed but the line running outside put us off so went back up the hill and street to Barley's. Admittedly, it was Saturday night on Memorial Day. The first floor of Barley's was packed and we were directed to the bar upstairs which was great because there was just a few people there playing pool. The beer selection was good and the bartender knew his stuff
