Barley’s serves up some of the best New York-style hand-tossed pizza in the region. Plus they offer a variety of other selections including huge calzones, pasta and appetizers like black bean hummus and hand-battered Buffalo fingers. Voted best beer selection by our readers, Barley’s has one of the most diverse beer selections anywhere. This new Maryville location resides in a former record store, and it features the weekly Behind the Barn live radio series on WFIV.

From YUMMM!, the Metro Pulse Restaurant Guide:

Barley’s Taproom and Pizzeria is one of those places that can use words like “best” and “finest” without exaggeration because those are honors that they’ve won time and time again. They regularly win, place, or show in Metro Pulse’s Best of Knoxville reader’s poll for Best Bar and they’ve won the Best Beer Selection category so many times that they qualify as grand champions. It doesn’t hurt that the place feels like a grand old beer hall, but it’s the selection of over 150 different beers that keep the votes coming. The beer selection rotates regularly and includes a wide variety of craft and high-gravity beer, but that’s not the only reason Barley’s makes a name for itself.

Of course, with that much beer around, it just wouldn’t feel right if there weren’t some great pizza handy, too. Barley’s serves their much-loved and award-winning version on a thin, sourdough crust that’s an appetizing base for the wide variety of beautiful things that go on top of it. You can make your own with regular toppings like pepperoni and Italian sausage or dress it up with some of Barley’s unique choices that include black beans, smoked sausage, and jerk chicken. The kitchen has recently added new items to the pasta and sandwich selections, and of course there are daily specials, too, so there’s something really tasty for everybody in the crowd.

Live music is a mainstay here: Barley’s presents an impressive variety of Americana, roots, and rock music from local, regional, and national acts. The Maryville location features a weekly live radio series on WFIV, Behind the Barn.

While it’s obvious why beer aficionados or music lovers enjoy hanging out here, Barley’s is an expansive place that appeals to a broad range of East Tennesseans. And while you may not find dainty cocktails with herbal infusions and exotic root syrups here, you will find good honest drinks, a nice wine selection, and, of course, one of the best damn beer selections around. But you don’t have to believe everything you read—it’s pretty easy to go find out for yourself.
