Join us in celebrating our faithful pub, which was the first joint-venture of the McMenamin brothers, so we take this opportunity every year to celebrate this gathering place. Celebrate 34 years of the Barley Mill; come rock out to the tunes of the Garcia Birthday Band, admire new art crafted by McMenamins' staff, and have a pint of the 2017 Barley Brew birthday ale, "Beninobenone IPA," brewed with a one-of-a-kind conglomerate of ingredients.
Vote on New Pub ArtThey may hang on the wall, or from the ceiling-spin in a circle all around the inside of the Barley Mill to admire pubs' art entries for this year's birthday contest theme, "The Barley Mill Pub as the Center of the Kingdom and Your Pub's Relation to the Whole!" After admiring each artistic masterpiece, please vote to help determine which one is given the People's Choice Award! The winners get funds to have a pub party, and their art is forever displayed at the Barley Mill.
Garcia Birthday Band from 3 p.m. 'til 6 p.m. in the Pub
Garcia Birthday Band (GBB), based in Portland, Oregon, is a group of veteran musicians interpreting and celebrating the vast repertoire of the late Jerry Garcia and The Grateful Dead.
But this isn't a "tribute band!" Drawing on years of individual and shared experience, these players are able to craft and transform these tunes into something fresh and original. Solid chops, tight arrangements and fine harmonies all contribute to the band's musical travels and explorations of possibly the greatest and most diverse songbooks of all time.
Always sure to raise the roof and keep the dance floor rocking, hoppin' and shakin', the band's quickly growing "GBB Family” fan base finds the community spirit and kind vibes contagious.
Music-lovers with a wide variety of tastes enjoy this band's extensive playlist which includes classics from Bob Dylan, Smokey Robinson, The Beatles, Johnny Cash, Chuck Berry, Jimmy Cliff, Traffic, Dr. John, Merle Haggard, The Meters, Neville Brothers, Buddy Holly, Otis Redding, Warren Zevon, Rev. Gary Davis, Bruce Cockburn, and Peter Tosh, to name a few. If your musical tastes range from rock-and-roll, country, R&B, blues, bluegrass, folk, or Americana, you will dig this band. No need to be a Deadhead.
With musicians hailing from the likes of New Riders of the Purple Sage (NRPS), David Nelson Band, Kingfish, Cubensis, Buds of May, Ike Willis Band, Brothers Jam and LOOS3, this band is certain to provide high musical adventure!

This celebratory brew, named after a character from James Joyce's Ulysses, will surely assist you in honoring the birth of the Barley Mill Pub, McMenamins' first joint venture! This IPA boasts big citrus aromas, thanks to a thorough dry-hopping, and fresh citrus flavors that lay over a mellow malt body, allowing the hops to shine.
