The Malted Barley is located in downtown Westerly. It has a huge selection of beer on tap, in bottles and cans. They serve awesome fresh baked pretzels and pretzel sandwiches. Very very friendly staff. A hidden gem.

Walk in, get greeted, get served, get social. After the b.s. of more pretentious places with less to offer, the folks at the Malted Barley are a breath of fresh air. What’s not to like about 30+ beers (real beers)on tap and a tasty burger...More

The Westerly pretzel sandwich and jalapeno pretzel with apricot butter are my favorites. Tap selection is always great. My favorite in Westerly.

The beer selection is amazing, it is pages long so have an idea of what you like be going The food is okay...little pricey for what you get. Food was not consistent either, been there twice, sandwich not the same each time.

Between here and 84 on Canal, plus Amigo's and the cigar store, one could sustain oneself quite admirably in downtown Westerly for weeks. The sausage and other patties are lovingly encased in chewy fresh pretzel buns, served with simple chips, and of course a brimming...More

We were in the Westerly area and decided to try the malted barley for lunch. We ordered a roast beef sandwich, a pretzel & a beer. Service was fast & friendly and the food was very tasty. We will definitely be returning.
