In town for work and decided to check this out based on the BA / untappd ratings.

Reminded me of severa college bars i used to go to. Wall to wall wood - wood tables, wood chairs, wood floor, etc. Two bars - one downstairs, one up top. Pool tables and such upstairs.

Tap selection is varied and mostly local to the areas distro. Lots of hops when i was there. The bottle list is more varied. The reserve list is where it is at though: kbs, vintage backwoods bastard, bell's batch 9000 (iirc).

Service wise was superb. Chatted with one of the managers and they were very knowledgeable regarding what they have, what they had, and whats upcoming. Also very cool that they do private tasting events (via auction) with the proceeds going to charity.

Food was ok - perhaps i ordered the wrong thing. Wouldnt stop me from trying something else though.

Two big dings against this place though - first being their hardcopy menus and untappd menus are not reflective of current beers. They list java ba 10-50 and they did have it but it was sometime ago according to the bar tender. Second, they have a cooler with bottles and cans, not all of which show up on the menu. I missed out on WB 6th Anniversary - not a big deal to locals but for a person who doesnt see WB in their neck of the woods, very disappointing.

So defintely check it out. Look at the reserve list, look in the cooler, and ask if they have anything not listed.

A 2-story venue with lots of taps upstairs and even more downstairs. Also carries a large selection of bottles. Rare beers routinely come thru here, as do various special events. I’ve enjoyed beers here with both Sam C. (Dogfish Head) and Greg Koch (Stone), not to mention a good variety of friends and strangers. Friendly atmosphere. Probably THE best craft beer bar in SC.

Some of the best beer selection downtown. When I stopped in, they had Creature Comforts on draft (and can) and Orpheus cans. That was enough for me. Plenty of SC and NC favorites. The bartenders knew what they were talking about as well. I did not go upstairs on this visit. But, on past visits, the upstairs selection is great. My only complaint is it's pretty dark inside and you get an "old" feeling. But, you go to drink (and eat) so why worry so much about decor, right? I'll definitely continue to go back.

Great beer selection, friendly staff, decent but limited food selection, big wide open spaces and fair prices. The only drawback is it's downtown location and parking limitations. Move this to right off I-85 and add ample parking and it becomes world class.

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!
