Our Story

It started as a hobby. Like most of us, Chris Perry loved beer… he went from drinking everyone’s old favorites to trying new craft beers to making his own. Somewhere along the line, the longtime ice cream veteran combined his knowledge of ice cream with his passion for beer, and the result was Barley & Hops.

Barley & Hops is the Souhegan Valley’s leading destination for beer and wine. With weekly beer tastings, dozens of new beers and wine each week, and unique ice cream varieties featuring local beer and wine, it will quickly become your go-to spot to restock your fridge or wine rack.

Fine Wine

Craft beers are fun, and now more than ever, there’s a beer for every occasion. Believe it or not, there are times when you just need a great bottle of wine. We work with the most experienced suppliers in the area to curate the perfect wine selection, and we get new deliveries every day.
