(Dover, NH) – The Barley Pub in Dover, NH is moving. Why is that a big deal? Because it’s the next stage in what has been a seacoast favorite and trailblazer for more than 12 years. When The Barley Pub first opened it was one of the first places in NH to focus on craft beers, offering a huge variety of locally crafted ales and lagers. [...]
When the larger, corner space across the street became available, Scott Mason, owner of The Barley Pub, knew it was just what he’d been waiting for. “When I first opened The Barley, I always had intentions of expanding and having a brewery to compliment the other beers I was featuring.” As it turned out, the space The Barley Pub has inhabited for so long didn’t support that dream. But this new space, with more square footage, large windows, a full kitchen and a front room perfect for 10bbl, brewing allows them to do just that – grow and expand. “Our clientele has grown up and become more beer and food savvy. They know what’s available out there. It was time for us to bring the Barley Pub to the next level.”, says Mr. Mason, “The larger space allows us to expand what we do so well – offering and introducing the best selections of craft beer and local music. And, this new space now allows us to pair that passion with food.”
The Barley Pub in Downtown Dover, only has to cross the street. They get more space to increase their tap lines to share more beer knowledge; more space to add a great locally sourced, expanded (don’t worry, their famous hand made Meatloaf Panini won’t be going anywhere), and more space to add a brewery – 2014.
According to Mr. Mason, they are planning to open in the new space in December. The Barley Pub will be closed for 2 weeks near the end of November while they make the final transition. The month of November will be packed with events to commemorate the years that have gotten them to this place and to prepare to blaze new trails in a new location.
