Hops & Barley is the new name for a company with a long history in the wholesale drinks business. Founded in 1989 by John Ravenscroft in Liverpool as Beerscellars UK, the business continues to be run by the Ravenscroft family, with all members having an active role, along with long serving members of staff at all depots. 
The company is a key partner with all of the major drinks brands, as well as many niche producers both local and from around the world.  Originally simply a beer wholesaler, Hops and Barley now stock a growing list of 4000+ products, priding ourselves on the range we offer, and if Hops & Barley don’t have it…we do our best to get it!
Operating out of three depots, Liverpool – (serving Merseyside and West Lancashire), Crewe (serving Cheshire, Manchester and North Midlands) and Holywell (serving North Wales), we supply some of the most prestigious hospitality venues in the North West and North Wales and our continued success is based around 3 core tenets; great service, a fantastic portfolio and providing sound professional advice.
In addition to the wholesale business the company has its own retail sites and brand distribution deals.  This, and our range gives, us a unique understanding of what the modern pub, restaurant, hotel, bar, or club operator requires.
