On the Road: Barley’s Taproom & Pizzeria

Barley’s Taproom & Pizzeria

photo by Gerard WalenAsheville, North Carolina, boasts one of the strongest craft beer communities in the Eastern United States. It has landed the title of “Beer City USA” two years in a row in a poll run by Examiner.com (much to the chagrin of Portland, Oregon), and has more than a dozen breweries in the immediate area.

But if you’re traveling through and have time for only one craft beer-centered stop, you can’t go wrong with Barley’s Taproom & Pizzeria in the heart of downtown Asheville. Opened in 1994, the pub and restaurant at 42 Biltmore Avenue boasts a wide variety of locally produced and out-of-state microbrews at its upstairs and downstairs bars, with a total of more than 50 taps and even more bottles. You can order a “Beer City Flight,” which includes a handful of brews made in Asheville.

Barley’s opened in 1994; the building dates to the 1920s, as evidenced by the wood-paneled walls and tin ceiling.

The pizza alone is worth the trip; for a special treat, be sure to order it with the “Beer Mash Dough” crust that integrates spent grain from local breweries.
