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 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.

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.
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.
