Beer is a wonderful thing. Drinking a truly great beer is one of those pleasures that makes you feel glad to be alive. To be involved in what is undoubtedly the most vibrant and exciting UK brewing scene in history, making modern beer alongside some of the best breweries is truly exciting, and a privilege. To make great beer that brings some of that life-affirming pleasure to people is what we aspire to. We make delicious, new beers for the bold and the curious.
Why Electric Bear
The name of our brewery comes from the old Bear Brewery that used to stand on the corner of the Wellsway, next to the Bear Inn in the Bear Flat area of Bath. Electric derives from how we power our brewhouse kettle (AKA the ‘copper’ – the vessel used to boil the wort during brewing).
That original Bear Brewery is now gone – the victim of a WWII Baedeker bombing raid in April 1942. But we are Electric Bear. Brewing here is back – bigger and better than ever.
Starting the brewery has been a journey and not a day goes by where we don’t learn something new. Challenging, yes. Hard work, yes. Worth it? Yes!
