Seven Deadly Pins for Craft Beer Week

What's On Tap


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?

Barley's Christmas Ale
When it came time to brew Barley's Christmas Ale though, we drop everything we're doing, grab some chairs (and beers!) and sit around zesting oranges while we chat. We add them and fresh young ginger, whole cinammon sticks and organic honey to the brew. It's hard not to get cheerful when doing such a special task.

Radioactive Windmill-Experimental Milkshake IPA
Our offering has a fluffy and creamy mouthfeel from generous additions of Ohio's Haus Malts Malted Wheat and Malted Oats, and lots of lactose from Wisconson, America's Dairyland. This beer has plenty of tropical fruit aroma from late addition hops, and negligible bitterness. We compliment a heavy handed dose of fruit and/or botanicals with evident but subtle vanilla.

Tour de Hops #12
Powered by Simcoe
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.

Compassionate Dragon
In 2012, we first made a beer specifically for Origins Game Fair. We decided to go in a new direction for Origins this year. Ian, Barley's Wholesale Accounts Manager suggested a Fruited Gose. Jason, Barley's General Manager suggested dragon fruit as a fruit that would appeal to gamers. After acquiring a sample of dragon fruit, we thought that this beer could benefit from more complexity.

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.

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.

Limited Availability Taps

Some brews we're only able to keep around on an intermittent basis due to their short supply and high demand. Please call ahead to check on their availability!

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

Barrel Aged Dark Abbey
Michael Salsbury's Dark Abbey is the winner of our 23rd Annual Homebrew Competition. This is Barley's third version of Belgian Dark Strong Ale. Delicate dried dark fruit aromas dominate, with rich caramel flavor and soft, but evident alcohol. Spicy notes are extremely subdued and perceived mostly as black pepper.
