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.

  • Papayan Ruins abv- 12oz 32oz Refill $16 | Full $8

    With plenty of fruit to back up the heavy tart sour punch from the lactobacillus plantarum, this bold kettle sour is heavily fruited with papaya. At first sip you'll notice the sour flavors of the beer and papaya play of each other perfectly to hide this beers 6.7% ABV, making it one dangerously easy sipper, be careful that this one doesn't ruin you!

  • Diaboltician 5.5% abv-12oz 32oz Refill $13 | Full $7

    This Hefeweizen has fruity notes of banana and hints of clove through its light body, finishing with the subtle sweetness this is an easy drinking beer for the masses.

  • Cold As What What 9.2% abv-12oz 32oz Refill $16 | Full $8

    This rich, malty, full bodied lager displays a deep dark brown color, with rays of ruby highlights shining through. This high ABV Dopple (Double) Bock's alcohol content is masked well behind a rich caramel presence, balanced out with just a touch of toasty and chocolate flavors. With virtually no hop flavor or aromatics, this over the top dark lager really lets the malt steal the show.

  • Show Me Belma 6.5% abv-12oz 32oz Refill $13 | Full $7

    A New England IPA- A rotating single hop series. This time around features the Belma hop. Belma is said to have an ambrosial mix of orange, melon, strawberry and pineapple with a slight hint of grapefruit, making it an obvious candidate for a single hopped New England IPA.

  • Hecho En USA 5.6% abc-16oz 32oz Refill $13 | Full $8

    This super clean, crisp, Mexican Style Lager is brewed with flaked maize, which lends a smooth, slightly sweet flavor to this beer. Then we saved you the step of having to slam a lime wedge into it, as we've already added plenty of fresh Key Limes during the brewing process. This Mexican Lager is the quintessential beach day / back yard BBQ beer, that is proudly Made In USA!

  • Cancelled Culture 6.0% abv-16oz 32oz Refill $12 | Full $7

    The subtle complexities of the malt flavors of this Amber Kellerbier play of the dryness of bready-toasty flavors. While the color may suggest a richer, heavier beer, this Amber Kellerbier is actually very light to medium bodied beer, with a dry finish that is complimented with bitterness derived from additions of Saaz and Hallertau Mittlefruh hops

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.
