Hit this on a recent trip to Greenville, and left wishing we had one down here. The hype didn't quite live up to the reality (most of the brews they had on tap, I had tried already), but still a more-than-solid selection. My friend had a sampler of beers, and I'll have to hit that next time, it was affordable and included a good amount of brew to sample. We split a pizza which was a good bit better than anything in these parts (plus, try the garlic rolls), so food was not a problem. Waitress seemed knowledgeable, and knew what brew you wanted without having to break it down. Atmosphere was weird, appearance is like a German beer hall, but on this Saturday we went, a lot of families were there. Would have liked to have seen it on a Friday or Saturday night.

A good selection of beer, really good food, this is a must visit in the area.

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!
