Northern Kentucky chain Barleycorn’s has recently opened its first brewhouse.

Barleycorn’s Brewhouse officially opened on Aug. 15, per a Facebook post, in Wilder, Kentucky. The spot, which was previously a fire station, is described as a “new twist on a classic, hometown brand.”

The brewhouse focuses on featuring local craft beer and food plus their own house-made brews and eats from their test kitchen.

On tap right now are some of Barleycorn’s creations like the Wet & Wilder IPA and the Hail Mary pale ale, plus brews from other independent breweries like the Oktoberfest from Sonder Brewing in Mason and the Shotgun Wedding from Country Boy Brewing in Lexington.

There’s also a small selection of signature cocktails that range from bloody marys to old fashions.

The menu is loaded up with bar food classics with appetizers like deep-fried cheese sticks and chips and queso, as well as sandwiches like the dijon turkey club, fried fish and cheeseburger. There are currently two entree options— fish and chips or a salad topped with salmon.

Everyone is welcome, including pups.

Barleycorn’s Brewhouse is located at 402 Licking Pike, Wilder. Find more information at
