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.

  • Drinkable Arrangments (Açaì) 3.8% abv-12oz 32oz Refill $15 | Full $8

    Our rotating Fruited Berliner Weisse kettle sour series features the Açai berry this time around. The South American Açai berry is rich in antioxidants and is considered the original "superfood", so that must make this a "superbeer". The tartness of this kettle sour is balanced out with the rich sweetness and subtle chocolate notes from these powerful little Açai berries.

  • Hefé Le Pew 5.5% abv-16oz 32oz Refill $13 | Full $7

    The basis for this beer starts off like any other Hefeweizen, malted wheat  and pilsner malt (nothing special there). Then we threw the traditional hop schedule out the window and added a healthy (but not overpowering) amount of Willamette, Tettnanger, Amarillo, and Citra to give this "Hefeweizen" truly unique taste and aroma that is a real crowd pleaser.

  • Everything But Your Name On The Cup 7.6% abv-12oz 32oz Refill $16 | Full $8

    Imperial Pumpkin Spice Latte Stout! This Stout balances nearly 60 lbs. of pumpkin pie filling, with our own tincture of cinnamon, nutmeg, clove, and allspice, blended with a touch of vanilla, then we crashed it with a hefty amount of Sidamo/Sidama freshly roasted coffee beans from Chubby Dog Coffee Co. This stout brings all the flavors of pumpkin spice, and a nice latte you'd expect your favorite barista to serve, but in a beer! It's Everything But Your Name On The Cup.

  • Show Me Cashmere 6.2% 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 Cashmere hop. Cashmere hops are intensely flavorful with a smooth bitterness. Brimming with tropical melon, pineapple, peach, coconut, and lemon-lime soda flavors.

  • Bailey's Gold 5.4% abv-16oz 32oz Refill $12 | Full $7

    A German-style Kölsch that is light in body with a crisp finish. A refreshing beer that is perfect for any kind of weather.

  • Hop Head Red 6.3% abv-16oz 32oz Refill $11 | Full $7

    Hop Head Red is a beer that is for the true craft enthusiast. This Hoppy Red Ale doesn't quite fit into the Red IPA category, and it certainly isn't your average low IBU Red Ale, but more of a fusion of the two.  The malty base of this Ale boasts rich notes of honey and biscuit.  All placed into the background by bold hop flavors and aromas of piney, citrus, and grapefruit resinous West Coast hop additions.

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.
