We’re Rare Barrel Beverage Supply. .
We bring people together.
Rare Barrel Beverage Supply Co. is an agency in Vancouver Canada that specializes in curating a selection of the most flavourful beers, ciders, meads, wines and coffees. We don’t have a corporate special buy program or rare beer program for our retailers, we put a lot of work into bringing beverages that we love from the brewers, the mead makers, the coffee roasters and the winemakers who we admire. We work meaningfully with our favourite liquor stores, restaurants and special event friends to help diversify and broaden the selection of beverages we have as drinkers in our province with tasty out-of-province and out-of-canada beverages.


What makes Rare Barrel special?
Who would work with them?
We're one of the few agencies in Canada to have combined formal experience working in multiple macro and micro breweries with brewing, packaging, lab, sales, distribution, lobbying, consultation, and festival organization experience. We're not 9-5'ers. We share the same values as the suppliers we support, we take calculated risks and we're independently and family owned.

Our Friends and Suppliers

We're doing something different.
 
 
We want a better drinking culture in Canada, so we work around the clock on beverage sales, distribution and putting on special events that are new, unique and meaningful to our friends, our families, and ourselves.
 
We don’t have a country where our favourite beverages are as liberally poured side-by-side with our other favourite beverages and favourite meals - but we’re devoted to making that happen through collaborations, special events and distribution.

Hopwired Festival is Canada’s only coffee and coffee beer festival and the world’s largest coffee and coffee beer festival by a slim amount of people. In 2019, we partnered with Global BC TV, The World Famous CFOX, and the amazing equipment supplier Espressotec to put on the 2nd annual event that featured over fourty-four coffee beers served side-by-side with their collaborative coffees.

Fruit Beer Fest is Canada’s newest niche festival, in its first year and features a couple of Peak Performance bands, amazing bbq and fried chicken by Big Day BBQ and DownLow Chicken Shack and a ton of collaborative fruit beers that were made in collaboration with local farms.

The Barrel-Aged Beer Summit will happen later in 2020. Details to come.

"His creation was Vancouver’s first coffee beer event… and let me tell you, Hopwired Festival was a fantastic, boozy good time!"
