Barley John's Brewery

Barley John's beers can be found around Wisconsin and the Twin Cities area.

Interesting Tools

Decent spot to toss back a few pints. Barley John's has a solid atmosphere for burning away those post work hours with good friends and good cheer. Next time we visit, we may just order a whole case and ship it home.

Barley John's Brewery Beers

Barley John's has plenty enough beers on tap. They feature a rotating nitro tap plus 4 rotating small batch lines, and, small batch kombucha. Their beers cover a wide range of beer styles, with varying amounts of alcohol content, so there's bound to be something for your discerning palette.

Barley John's used to brew a Pickle Ale that rivaled Martin House Brewing's Best Maid Pickle Beer. The Dilly, as it was called, was 5.1% abv and conditioned with horseradish and dill.

  • Alfred's Imperial Porter
  • Kolsh
  • IPA 2.0
  • Old 8 Porter
  • Wild Brunette
  • Mango Double Pale Ale
  • Cone Gnome
  • The Dilly Ale
  • Red Eye Chelada
  • Dark Knight Returns (Barrel Aged)

They must use a ton of hop varieties, judging from the breadth of their beer lineup. We were surprised that there's no USA Puppers Beer brewed here.

Brewery Food

Barley John's serves small plates and apps. Think sandwiches, wraps, charcuterie boards, beer cheese dips, salsa & chips, and hand rolled pizzas. We're a bit curious about the Pizza John, a ham, pineapple, and onion pie. Hopefully Papa John doesn't sue!

But, they do offer specialized event-style dinners, like a three-course Valentine's Day dinner paired specially with their beers. Dessert included, clearly.

Brewery Events

Events like the Cabin Fever Classic, an indoor mini golf tourney that spans across 9 different venues are just one of the great events that BJB participates in.

Brewery merch

You can acquire BJB beer pint glasses, which are always an enjoyable beer gift. They also have custom koozies.
