Tim and the rest of the Barley's & Hop's staff has treated us well in the past and we're happy to make a return trip to the South Hills! Why reinvent the wheel when B&H already has quite a nice, concise description of themselves on their website?
"Welcome to Barley's & Hop's Beer Cafe located near the entrance to South Park in Bethel Park. We are a cross between a German Biergarten and a New Orleans style coffee house (hold the coffee) offering an enormous variety of imports and microbrews. Enjoy a beer here or take advantage of our generous "by the bottle" take out discounts. A warm, friendly "Cheers" atmosphere greets both regulars and newcomers. Spend some time discussing the latest seasonal arrivals, sports and just about any other topic. You will always find something interesting on one of our Lucky 13 taps! From our signature "pink elephant" Delirium tap to the "War Lion", a B&H special. Join in the fun on open mic Tuesday nights where anyone can play, and/or sing usually followed by a great acoustic jam. You can also show off your skill at Wii games and random karaoke nights. Relax on one of the sofas in the mug club lounge. Catch all your favorite sports events on one of our many TV's!"
They also host frequent beer & cheese tastings and other fun events! Because it's a relatively small venue, I've been asked to cap the attendance at 35 people. Start time is listed as 6:30 pm, but feel free to show up early to take advantage of their Happy Hour special - $2 off all drafts from 4:30 - 6:30! And maybe even plan to take a mix-and-match six-pack home with you...they have quite a selection!
