Creative Barrel Questions

What are your display barrels made from?

Creative Barrel creates premium display barrels manufactured from sustainably-sourced pine, oak or aspen. Our most popular barrel is our premium pine which makes a display stand out and get noticed. Aspen barrels are ideal for coffee producers because it meets the industry requirements and standards. Premium oak barrels are also available on limited availability.

What are some common uses for your display barrels?

Our point-of-purpose (POP) displays add the necessary pop that advertising after lacks. Wine, beer and spirits distributors love to use our barrels for POP displays because it displays their product in a sophisticated and interactive setting. We also provide many bars and restaurants with barrels and barrel ends for signage and create a rustic vibe. Retailers also love our barrels for product displays that set them apart. POP displays are also about functionality. Grocers appreciate how our barrels can serve a dual function for shipping and displaying coffees, candies and nuts. Last, but not least, our barrels are featured in some major Hollywood productions — little films like “Pirates of the Caribbean.” More of a sports fan? You’ve might have seen our products being used by the San Francisco 49ers.

Do your display barrels hold water?

Our most common stock pine barrels do not hold water. But, luckily, any barrel is able to be easily outfitted with liners to hold ice, liquids and can even be used for dispensing beverages. Not only are our custom barrels a crowd-pleaser, but they are also functional for numerous types of events.

Can these barrels be used outdoors?

We do not recommend using our pine barrels outdoors. Our American oak barrels fare better in outdoor conditions. Our American oak barrels are limited availability so please call to see whether they are in stock.
