Barley John's Brewing Company, New Richmond

Brewery · Hidden Gem · Food & Drink

Barley John’s is brewer owned and operated with roots in a Minnesota Brewpub where demand outgrew capacity.

It started when Laura asked John, then an enthusiastic home brewer, if there are brown ales, red ales, even blond ales—why not a brunette ale? With that spark, John developed his signature wild rice brown ale, the Wild Brunette. Before long, he had to expand his home brew setup because friends were drinking all his beer, eventually opening a beloved neighborhood brew pub. When demand there outgrew supply, the full brewery and tap room in Wisconsin was the next logical step.

  • This brew pub is a hidden gem in NR for a brew and pizza. Tucked away in an industrial park, people seem to not even realize it is there. The best part for me was watching a random Sandhill crane...  more »
  • The owner was knowledgeable and passionate about the beers. It was wonderful! Every beer was worth a try. Try the artichoke dip, it is awesome.
  • We did the tour and enjoyed every minute of it! Loved the small town pub feel to this place, and everyone on the staff was awesome! The beer and food were excellent!
