About Us

Our Family.

RH Barringer started as an entrepreneurial spark in 1933 and is now proudly run by the on-going fourth generation. We are privately owned which allows us to put a special focus on creating an atmosphere of community and care towards our employees,  partners and surrounding towns. 

Our Community.

We believe that people need two fundamental aspects in life: Love and Support. We treat everyone as equals because we believe everyone is equal. We focus on giving back to our community because we recognize the fact that we can’t function as a company without supporting the people that create it. Our RHB family has helped shape us into who we are today.

Our Partners.

RH Barringer takes pride in having the largest NC craft brand portfolio in North Carolina. We have a multitude of partners that range from large corporations to niche specialty entities to creative craft operations. We work equally with every partner to build brands and distribute each product with the highest quality. We are proud of our diverse portfolio ranging from domestics, craft, non-alcoholics, imports, malt beverages, wine and cider.
