In case you haven’t already heard, the BARn tap room is now open for a lot more than Saturday!
Back in May, we kicked off Sundays on Mother’s Day weekend. All the moms got a free pint that Sunday, and we’ve been open every Sunday from 12 to 5 p.m. since then.
Beginning on Labor Day weekend, we started opening the tap room on Friday afternoon and evening 2 to 9 p.m.
As always, the BARn is family friendly. Andy’s Homemade Root Beer is on draft for those that don’t drink beer. We’re pet friendly, too, and there’s always a big bowl of water on the deck for our four-legged friends. We have a Mike and Julie’s Smoked Meats at the BARn about one weekend a month, and you are welcome to bring food or snacks with you to enjoy with your beer. We even have a gas grill on the upper deck that you can use–bring your own meat.
We always have sample trays and pints for sale. We fill growlers and you can take home a Piney River Crowler, too. We usually have 6 to 8 handcrafted brews on tap for your enjoyment.
We have a full merch line up–T-shirts, baseball caps, koozies, pint glasses, Hydroflask growlers, tin tackers and more. AND we accept Visa, Mastercard and Discover. We also have some jewelry and wood carvings available from local artists if you’re looking for something extra special from the Ozarks.
On Saturdays we try to have live music. The music varies from solo acts to bands. Many of the bands we hire are local artists with music and swag for sale, too. You can stay abreast of weekend activities at the BARn by checking out our Facebook page.
If you would like a tour of the BARn, we are currently doing those on Saturdays only–usually around 4 p.m. If you would like a tour, please tell the bar staff, and they will give you one. Right now, the tours are limited to the small BARn, but when we get our new barn completely put together, we will give tours of it, too.
Our bigger crowds are usually at the BARn on Saturday, but we’ve heard many people say they enjoy Fridays and Saturdays because there’s less hustle and bustle at the BARn. You can usually chat up the bar staff, and you can definitely hear the birds singing on the craft beer deck outside.
We started hauling hay out of the loft of our old barn in the summer of 2010. We always thought we would build some type of tasting room upstairs because we figured there would be a few curious people that would want to sample the beer and see where it was made. We thought that our tasting room would end up being a cool place for us to hang out with our friends. We had no idea that the BARn would become a destination location in the Ozarks. We had no idea that every weekend folks would flock from all over the state to our little farm on the Piney. We had no idea that we were building a destination brewery.
So, thank you to all of the people that have helped our little brewery reach the point that we need to be open all weekend long. And if you haven’t already raised a pint with us at the BARn, we are looking forward to doing that with you very soon!
