Dropped in on a Friday night with my wife. Put our name on the list for a table and grabbed a spot at the bar. Great selection of local taps as well as a few bigger American micros and a few imports. Huge bottle list with even more local stuff and excellent imports. Had a few beers from Catawba and they had multiple offerings from French Broad, Pisgah, Highland, and Duck Rabbit.

Food was also good. A nice balck bean hummus for an appetizer and excellent pizza for the main course. Prices were all very reasonable (verging on cheap). Atmosphere was loud and lively. Did not go upstairs but I was told they have pool/darts etc and allow smoking up there. Definitely a good place to stop if you are ever in downtown Asheville.

Disclaimer, I am a Homer. Barleys is the standard by which I judge beer bars. Tap list and food always brings it.

This is a wonderful place with great atmosphere to quickly taste a lot of the Asheville beers, so you can get an idea of which breweries to hit. Wait staff is extremely helpful, and pints are reasonably priced at $4 (spring 2015). Highly recommended! (Did not taste the food, which is why it's not rated).

A good place to visit when in Asheville. Several floors to choose from. Food was good, not Sure if they source local or anything , but seemed to be made from scratch. Beer selection was good. Had several locals to choose from. Prices were fair and good. I'd definitely check it out.

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.
