Barley John’s Brew Pub

By August 3, 2016 No Comments


Barley John’s is a small, owner operated brew pub, located just north of Minneapolis. They produce high quality food and craft beer on their oasis in New Brighton.

John Moore and wife Laura Subak founded Barley John’s Brew Pub in 2000. After years of home brewing and earning a degree in nutritional sciences from the U of M, John completed coursework from the Siebel Institute of Brewing Sciences. After brewing for the now defunct District Brewing in downtown Minneapolis and James Page Brewing (NE location), John took his passion and experience to the current reality. Along with help from wife and partner Laura, and countless friends and family, Barley John’s Brew Pub was born March 14th, 2000.

John and the team worked to grow the original vision by adding a vegetable garden for fresh seasonal produce, and a fully maxed out facility for brewing production. Soon, they will be the only brewery in Minnesota to install a solar array to provide solar energy to the facility.

Barley John’s brewhouse is a steam heated 3.9bbl facility from Specific Mechanical. It features a mash tun/boil kettle and a lauter tun/whirlpool combo. There is an additional cereal cooker that allows them to brew in the German tradition for those recipes that can benefit from it. Barley John’s brews 2-4 times per week. They brew twice to complete a batch and fill the double sized fermenters. They have 3 primary fermenters and 2 bright tanks. In addition, they have 8 serving tanks that deliver the fresh beer to the taps.

Barley John’s Brew Pub features 4 flagship recipes, with up to an additional 4-7 seasonal recipes at any given time.
