The name of our brewery comes from the old Bear Brewery that used to stand on the corner of the Wellsway, next to the Bear Inn in the Bear Flat area of Bath. Electric derives from how we power our brewhouse kettle (AKA the ‘copper’ - the vessel used to boil the wort during brewing). That original Bear Brewery is now gone – the victim of a WWII Baedeker bombing raid in April 1942. But we are Electric Bear. Brewing here is back – bigger and better than ever.
Our approach to brewing is simple: we want to produce consistently great tasting beers of all styles from easy-drinking ales to highly-hopped, high strength beers – from our core range to our experimental small batch nanobrews.
