Our hand crafted ales are delivered from our brewery directly to the bar just ten feet away. Do you want the born-on date in hours or minutes?

2001: A Haze Odyssey
While Batch #2000 pays tribute to the solid foundation that British Malt and Centennial Hops contributed to Barley's history, Batch 2001 is firmly planted in the present. The beer style "Juicy or Hazy IPA" was recognized by the Brewers Association this Spring and batch #2001 marks our humble first attempt at the style. This is our second beer brewed entirely with super crisp Ohio Malt from Haus Malts in Cleveland.

Barley's SMaSH 2K Pale Ale
Our 2,000th batch of beer is a showcase for the ingredients that have served us well for the last quarter of a century. The Single Malt is the biscuity British Pale Ale Malt that we've been using since the very first beer we served here. The Single Hop is grapefruity Centennial, the hops that we put in our 100th batch-Centennial IPA (which we're fairly certain was the first IPA brewed in Columbus). Our house yeast is the reliable workhorse of our brewery and contributed a hint of fruity esters and a clean finish.

Bourbon Meyer Buckeye Stout
Imperial stout aged in bourbon barrels with chocolate and peanut butter.

Tour de Hops Batch #8
Powered by Idaho Experimental Hop #1
Our Experimental Double IPA will feature different hops in each iteration. It's a warming companion to Blurry Bike, our core IPA. Experimenting with hops helps keep the brewer's job interesting, we hope to keep our customer's curious palate interested,too. Varying combinations of citrus, pine, tropical fruit and spicy hop flavors are almost balanced by rich British malt, american oats and a not so sneaky sensation of peppery alcohol. Enjoy the Tour, but don't drink and ride.

Barley's Blood Thirst Wheat ®
Winner of our 14th annual Homebrew Competition in 2009. Lloyd Cicetti's Wheat Beer with Blood Oranges is a citrusy and supremely refreshing with floral notes thanks to Sicillian blood orange zest added to the brew kettle and puree added during and after fermentation. This hefeweizen has hints of fruity esters and spice from Bavarian wheat yeast.

Barley's Pilsner
A great introduction to craft brewed beer, since there is enough malt and hop flavor in our Pilsner to keep even the most sophisticated beer drinkers coming back for more.

Barley's Pale Ale
Pale ale was the first beer we brewed in our brewery and continues to be one of our flagship ales. Because of the rich color of British malt, it is not very pale, but the rich flavor matches the color beautifully.

Barley's Scottish Ale
When we first brewed this beer we didn't know what would happen when we turned our brew kettle on while it was empty, in order to scorch the malt. We liked the results so much that Scottish has been on tap ever since.

Barley's Auld Curiosity Ale
We discussed the possibility of producing a brew with a historical background. We even searched for a George Washington's recipe for his estate brew. We ended up with a recipe that includes black treacle, and intensely flavored molasses. The combination of ingredients results in a fuitiness that makes for a fine after dinner drink.

Infinity Grand Cru
Barley's Infinity Grand Cru is a wonderfully complex Belgian dark strong ale. Complex, with a rich malty sweetness, fruity esters and significant alcohol with moderate spiciness. The malt is rich and forward, with caramel and toast aroma. The esters give raisin, plum and dried cherry notes, with a subtle pepperiness.

Alexander's Russian Imperial Stout
The first time we brewed the Russian we didn't think we'd get all the grain in the mash tun. Until Ohio liquor laws allowed us to exceed 6% alcohol by weight, this was as big as brewing workouts got here. The result is a roasty, fruity beer that you might be tempted to eat with a spoon.

Barley's Conquerer Imperial Oatmeal Stout
Conqueror is silky, smooth and velvety in texture, with a subtle roasty warmth. Perfumy chocolate aromas give way to dark dried fruit flavors. Brewed for a portion to be aged in specific, unique barrels.

Barley's Point of Origin
Origins Game Fair comes into town once a year; Origins is a regional convention regarding all things board games. They asked if we'd be interested in sponsoring their convention. Belgian Golden Ale that is hard to beat as a thirst quencher.

Foolish Mortal A. J. Zanyk's Baltic Porter
Veteran Home Brewer A.J. Zanyk has won his share of awards for his beer, but this is the first time he's won our competition. His recipe calls for a whopping 14 different kinds of grain. His meticulous explanation "Each grain or pairing of grains was to achieve just the right flavor, foam level or mouthfeel."
