Tyler, owner of Barley Brown

It is with welcome anticipation that we watch the clock count down the minutes until Barley brew. Wednesday evenings are spent, with friends, around a table at Baker City’s one and only Barely Brown’s Brew Pub. We pull up a stool, and pints of cold sudsy wheat beer magically appear in front of us. Kathy, the bar-maid, knows what we drink and greets us with a smile and a menu. Usually, we order a burger (recently selected as the best in Baker) and fries or a nacho with extra jalapenos and settle into a few hours of downtime.

The Bar at Barley Brown's

The atmosphere is warm and inviting after a long week. Barley’s has won several awards in the last few years. Their leap into stardom has been nothing short of amazing for a small brew pub in an Eastern Oregon town. Tyler (the owner) and Shawn (the beer-mister) are both local boys who started brewing in hopes of satisfying the thirst of friends and family. What started out as a passion for suds has taken home brew to a new level. What we love is that the gold medals, press, and notoriety has allowed them to produce more and better beer. As far as we can tell, the fame and fortune hasn’t gone to their heads (too much) and instead, they are working harder than ever to ensure that their customers have a pint to toast and a place to relax.
