Artisan Craft Candles

Barley & Hops Craft Candles

Barley & Hops Craft Candles is a Kansas City-based craft candle company owned and operated by wife & husband team Carrie & Brandon Atkins. Our artisan craft candle lines are inspired by local craft breweries, craft distilleries, and wineries from across the nation.

We hand-pour a libation of soy-blend candles that pay homage to the unique & exotic aroma blends of the finest local craft breweries, craft distilleries, cideries, and wineries from across the nation.

Our craft candles don’t replicate the aroma of the spirits we sip in the traditional sense. Rather, we capture the essence & lovely notes of the unique aromas without compromising the lovely, inviting aroma of a great candle.

Our collection of artisan candles are crafted to the highest possible standard. They are eco-friendly, dye-free, hemp-wicked, highly fragrant, and hand-poured.
