What's On Tap

  • Prices are left to right for Refill on Howlers and Full Pours.  

 In-house Pony’s (8oz) and Samples (5oz) are available.

  • Crashing The Party (Oh Yeah!) 5.1% abv-12oz 32oz Refill $15 | Full $8

    This Juice Box Sour is fruity deliciousness, that is reminiscent of your favorite childhood drink, with an adult twist. It'll leave you saying OH YEAH!

  • Czeching Up 9.0% abv-12oz 32oz Refill $15 | Full $8

    This Imperial Bohemian Pilsner flaunts a respectable ABV behind its slightly sweet malt body. With much lower hop bitterness than a German of American Pilsner the bready, biscuit like malt character really steals the show.

  • Ermegerd 5.0% abv-12oz 32oz Refill $14 | Full $7

    This peanut butter cup stout is loaded down with multiple additions of peanut butter that is very present up front, and just a touch of cacao to add the underlying chocolate flavor on the back end. Ermagerd is all I can say!

  • Show Me Mosaic 6.6% abv-12oz 32oz Refill $13 | Full $7

    "Show Me" is our popular single hopped New England IPA series that rotates out a new hop each time around. Sharing the same grain bill this beer is nice and hazy with just enough body to not steal the "Show" from the featured hop. This batch we used the Mosaic hop. Mosaic hop is the daughter of the bittering hop Simcoe. Full of vibrant berry flavors and an earthy complexity the wonderful berry fruitfulness of Mosaic is complemented by a contrasting earthy, piney taste.

  • Sanity Pils 5.0% abv-16oz 32oz Refill $12 | Full $7

    Popular in Munich, Germany this Pale Kellerbier is a moderately malty Pils that showcases a cloudy appearance. Don’t let that fool you, it’s very light in body making it a pleasantly drinkable Bier.

  • Assumed Intelligence 5.2% abv-16oz 32oz Refill $12 | Full $7

    This unique lagered ale is fermented at cool temperatures to create a hybrid between an ale and a lager. Brown to caramel in color with a clean and crisp overall drinkability. The rich malts and fruity esters contribute to its nutty finish.

Our Story

Bear Hands Brewing Company is Us. My husband Justin, is the brewer and I Kayla, am the business. While raising our kids, Ada now 8 and Colin now 4 we decided to take on the endeavor of opening a brewery and tap room and still trying to balance work/ life/… brewery. We took Justin’s 14 year- homebrewing hobby, to the next level. After, the good feedback from our inner circle, we started traveling all around CT, from beer fest to beer fest. Pouring our beer for the masses, and again the feedback was great! That’s when we took it upon ourselves to formulate a business plan to open our very own Brewery and Tap Room. We wanted to make brewing a career so we could share our passion for beer and atmosphere with everyone. After, three long years of highs and lows we accomplished what we set out to do, our brewery doors are finally open! Bear Hands Brewing Company’s charming home is in the quiet corner of downtown Putnam, CT.
