Here’s a peek at our life and passion. It all started with Justin Trant (head brewer and my husband) receiving a home brew kit 12 or so years ago for a birthday present. All it took was one birthday present over a decade ago for him to realize he had a passion and appreciation for beer and the simple ingredients. Now, here we are almost 2 kids and 12 long years later taking our appreciation and thirst to a whole new level of satisfaction. This desire to produce Great Beer for Great People, has now evolved into a Family aspiration with support from both sides of the family, leading everyone in this new and exciting endeavor is Justin and Kayla.
Bear Hands Brewing Company has been producing Craft Beer of all styles for the past decade within our home. Through trials we have developed over 65 superb recipes many are award winning beers, including but not limited to our Fabulous Double IPA (India Pale Ale) with a respectable ABV of 8.5%. The fabulous Double IPA has taken best in show at Beer Festivals and at local tastings.
Being advanced Home Brewers we want to take the next step to opening a Nano-Brewery and Tap house in CT . This will allow us to share our passion with the rapidly growing, Craft Beer Community. The Tap room will offer tastings of all the beer we have to offer allow, so our followers can be in integral part of our brand. The objective is to start on a Nano scale to further our reputation, build our client base and keep our costs reasonably low.
