“Good beer in Westerly!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 18, 2012

We're amazed it took so long for a place like this to appear in Westerly. For years we've had to travel up to Wakefield for a good beer selection. The Malted Barley's regular changing selection is a big draw but don't forget the handmade pretzels for snacking, sandwiches, or dessert - yes dessert. Soooooo amazing when paired with a quality micro brew. Sitting on the deck overlooking the Pawcatuck River at dusk is just about perfect.

“Great pretzels and great staff!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 9, 2012 via mobile

Nice place when you walk in, very clean. Sat at the bar and chatted up the bartenders and ate warm, fresh pretzels with homemade dipping sauces. Very delicious. Many draft beers to choose from. Will go again!

Fantastic selection of beers on tap and in bottles. Many local micro breweries. Nice casual atmosphere.
Great home made pretzels and dips to go with them.
Fun place.

“And I am not a beer drinker...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2012

So I'll start out saying I don't like beer so the fact that I've been to the Malted Barley twice (without being forced!) speaks volumes! The place has a great atmosphere with a diverse crowd and the tables aren't crammed together. Even if you don't normally enjoy a brewski, they have such and amazing selection, you can surely find something not too "beer-y" to enjoy. My current favorite is the banana bread beer! And, yep, the pretzels are fantastic. The chipotle & gouda one rocks. Service is great and very helpful!

“Great place even for us older people”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 27, 2012

The small menu is a compliment not an insult...superb quality food something for the vegetarian, meat eater and others...the bagel is not a gimmick..the salt on top adds great layer of flavor to the sandwiches.....the only disappointment , and a minor one, is they have tons of great domestic brews but very few Irish or English offerings, it's patriotic and I like that too so I guess I will retract that disappointment...go there..you,ll feel young and alive even if u r 25
