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.

  • Kie Lime Pie 4.2% abv-12oz 32oz Refill $15 | Full $8

    A Key Lime Gose. Do you like key lime pie? If so Then you’ll enjoy the dessert of a beer. This Gose features a sweet, semi-tart body with a graham cracker finish.

  • Compound Curve 5.3% abv-16oz 32oz Refill $12 | Full $7

    This Pale American Wheat Ale concentrates it's main flavor profile on the clean cracker-like maltiness derived from the hefty percentage of malted wheat in the grain bill. The malt flavors are balanced throughout with Comet and Cascade hop additions, adding just a touch of zesty grapefruit flavors and aromatics.

  • 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.

  • Benevolent King 6.6% abv-16oz 32oz Refill $13 | Full $7

    In the kingdom of beers, the IPA is the reigning king of ales. This lager packs all the hop flavors and aromas you crave in an IPA, but is brewed with a clean, bottom fermenting lager yeast. This gives this IPL a very kind, well mannered, easy-drinking quality that will leave you craving more.

  • Think Skinny 5.4% abv-16oz 32oz Refill $12 | Full $7

    This beer is just a nice light, moderately hopped Pale Ale. With a light to medium, body this beer plays off its lightly toasted maltiness, backed up with just enough hop additions to bring everything into balance.

  • Nochmal Oktoberfest 6.3% abv-16oz 32oz Refill $12 | Full $7

    This brilliant rich amber colored lager is a very complex blend of rich malt flavors, ranging from sweet to slightly toasted. With a rich body, and smooth clean crisp finish, this is the perfect beer for Oktoberfest "once again".

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.
