Located in the heart of downtown Mystic, Barley Head Brewery is a nano-brewery and bar.

Our 2 bbl brewing system allows us to make a wide variety of beers, offering something for everyone. Our beers will change each week. We will strive to have 4 to 6 beers on tap that showcase the versatility and range of flavors that can be achieved in a brewery. Many of our ingredients are sourced locally, sometimes from the brewer's own garden. Our beers are available by the glass, the growler, and in cans.
