Barley’s has exclusive beers


A lot has changed seven years after Greg Purnell opened Barley’s Beer Barn. 

First and foremost, Gluckstadt has been incorporated into a city. 

“Things are going great with Gluckstadt booming like it’s booming,” Purnell said. “It is just a great fit for growth.”

Second, Purnell has been able to expand. About a year and a half ago, he and business partner Eddie Burks opened The Keg House in Ridgeland off Highway 51.

“I think it is every guy’s dream to own a bar, and we have been working on that business model for a while,” Purnell said.

Instead of slinging six packs of beer, The Keg House invites patrons to sit at its bar, which runs the length of the store, and sip a beer from its 41 taps while enjoying a variety of bar snacks and sandwiches.

“We have the best muffuletta outside of Louisiana,” Purnell said.

Other hot items include a pair of snacks named after his twin sons. Tanner’s Trash, the bar’s proprietary Chex mix blend, and Parker’s Pretzel, a warm, soft pretzel served with beer cheese and mustard. 

The bar also features multiple televisions and live music on Fridays.

The taps at the Keg House and Barley’s are also home to an exclusive beer form Key City Brewing in Vicksburg, the Pretty In Pink Boots. This “hazy IPA with dragon fruit” is only available through Purnell’s taps in Gluckstadt and Ridgeland and at the brewery in Vicksburg.

“We try to get everything we can get our hands on,” Purnell said.
