This is a list of barley-based drinks. Barley, a member of the grass family was one of the first domesticated grains in the Fertile Crescent and drinks made from it range from thin herbal teas and beers to thicker drinkable puddings and gruels.
Barley has been used as a source of fermentable material for beer for thousands of years and whiskey for hundreds of years. Barley beer was probably one of the first alcoholic drinks developed by Neolithic humans. More recently it has been used as a component of various health foods and drinks.
In 2016, barley was ranked fourth among grains in quantity produced (141 million tonnes) behind maize, rice and wheat.
