About The Barley Mow

More than 700 Craft Beers from over 100 American Craft Breweries.

thebarley_mow_exteriorThe Barley Mow features the largest selection of craft beer in the area with more than 750 varieties coming from more than 100 American craft breweries.

Our goal is not only provide an extensive selection, but to create a comfortable atmosphere where you can relax while you shop – all while enjoying a tasty brew.  Think your favorite coffee house, but instead of lattes we’re pouring imperial stouts – IPAs instead of macchiatos.

Aside from our bottle and can selection, The Barley Mow features a massive ever-rotating draught line – and we fill growlers!

Come to The Barley Mow, relax and enjoy all the good things life has to offer.

The Story

How We Got Here

We were trapped in the monotony of our careers, coming home dissatisfied and lacking passion…something had to give…so, naturally, we built a craft beer house.

For about six weeks, we traveled across this beautiful country in order to soak in as much as we could about the craft beer industry and the personality that comes along with it.

We have a passion for good beer and want to bring the love that we received from the craft beer world to our neighborhood.

With the amazing support from our family, friends, and cohorts in beer – our dream came to life. To you, we are eternally grateful.
