What types of beers in particular will you highlight? Will you serve food? If so what food? What's your demographic? Where will the bar be located? Are you in a city or small town? Does the town or neighborhood have and interesting or clever sounding name? You need to start answering the bigger questions first. Once those are answered, you'll either have a significantly shorter and more unique list to choose from or the name will just fall in your lap.
Some great advice! What's in a name? If you have the word "corner" in the name, it should be located on a corner. "Barley Tree" sounds like a store in a mall. What sort of decorating theme is planned? If it's decorated like an Irish pub, I think it should have an Irish name, like O'Leary's.
If it's decorated in a generic way, then I think a name like Barley's Pub works well; gives you a lot of leeway on just about everything. Is it a brewpub? Maybe something like "The Taproom" or "Barley's Brewpub." Doesn't have to be Barley's either, something reasonably short & possesive would work well. You could call it "Frank's" or "Dave's" But I don't think long names or difficult to pronounce names like "Weirzbeski's" would work; though if you shortened a tough name like Weirzbeski to something like "Ski's" or "Beski's Brewpub" it could work for you.
I have to agree with spintab: answer those questions & you'll have the name.
