Get to Know Our Brewers: The Brains and Beauty Behind Electric Bear Brewing Co.

As Electric Bear begins to reach more and more customers, we realise not everyone can come down to the Taproom to meet us in person. That’s why we wanted to introduce you to the brains and beauty behind our brewery. Read on to meet the Bears…
