Kudos to Barley John's New Brighton MN!

My folks were in town and my dad was looking to try some of the local brews. We needed a place that was kid friendly with good beers and decent food, and Poivre recommended Barley John's. It was an awesome suggestion. Keep in mind that I am not a beer person so I have never paid attention to any prior posts on this place if any exist. Anyway, they seated us right away in the very small space (it was early, like 5:30) and moved people around a little to accomodate my dad's knee brace and the high chair. The beer was reportedly "fantastic" per Paz. Mom got red wine and promptly spilled it all over chowbaby, which was scary (glass, red wine, blood? no blood) and the waitress was awesome, all over it in a jif, super nice. The food was solid, 3 got pizzas (H, N and chilpotle, all were very good and in fact are right up there for best TC 'zas). One got a burger and judged it good I think. Overall, near perfect: nice atmosphere, nice waitress who was efficient and helpful, good food, great beer. Can't say enough good things about this place, and again, I don't even like beer.
