Hibearnation Pack Update

Posted on

We’ve been in lock down for too long now, but it hasn’t stopped us having a bit of fun and interaction with you guys (our customers).  Through the platform of zoom our head brewer and MD, have hosted 2 online tasting sessions, working through some of our range, weighing in on the builds flavours and styles of ours and other beers.  There’s been a healthy dose of competitive knowledge, attempts to catch each other out, and questions in and around beer, politics and personal life.  For us it’s a legitimate reason to kick back and have a beer with friends – which is exactly what we all want to do.  We have one more month of viewer interaction before lock…

HiBEARnation beer festival

Posted on

  As April the 12th fast approaches we at Beartown,( and the rest of the world ) are slowly turning our ships to catch those trade winds once more.  We have worked tirelessly to sell our beer over the past 12 months, capturing most of our sales directly from consumers, – it has been a gratifying experience, and a brilliant opportunity to promote our brands.  Hopefully those customers that have had a taste of the sweet nectar Beartown produces will be banging down the pubs doors asking for our products to be made available in their local. We have no intention of stopping our direct delivery service to people’s homes, but as a business we need to start getting back…

Dry Hopping – What is it and why do we do it?

Posted on

  You may have seen in some of our recent posts we’ve been talking about “dry-hopping” some of our seasonal brews like Ukuku & Cub, but what exactly are we talking about and why do we do it?  Dry-hopping is by no means a new craze with evidence dating the practice back at least a 100 years, but whereas its purpose has changed from preservation to that of flavour it has also become much more prevalent over the last two decades with hop-forward styles dominating the market and arguably favoured by a majority of beer-drinkers. It would be unusual these days, for a brewery to not to utilise a dry hop in any of their product range. So why do…

Life on a SORN. – sucks to be a furloughed driver.

Posted on

Well as the main man that is Bozza has put a very small light at the end of this shit show, I have given some time to reflect on what lockdown and furlough life has been like. Each day is very much like groundhog day, wake, eat, watch TV, sleep and repeat. I’m going to say that I’ve completed lockdown. Don’t think there is anything stream-able that I haven’t watched. I have even picked up the odd book, not read it just using them as weights for my new exercise regime. I’d say my biggest achievement is that I have started to put my physical well being top of my priorities and have shed a couple stone and taken up…

The Life of a Furloughed Brewer

Posted on

Lockdown, Day 7439 I’ve completed Netflix. My dogs are getting pissed off at having to go for walks so often. The house has been repainted 3 times since this all began. Boredom is starting to set in. My girlfriend works full time from the attic now, so unless I’m being ordered to fetch cups of tea, it’s essentially just the dogs and me conversing. My Elkhound told the funniest joke yesterday… I’ve been brewing a lot in my garage. Experimenting with new techniques and ingredients. It’s always good to keep in the swing of things and to get the chance to experiment. The side effect of this however is, I now have about 500 bottles of beer to drink by…

The Adventure Starts Here!!!

Posted on

Welcome to Beartown – The Adventure Starts Here!!!   2020 has been a roller coaster ride for so many of us, me included!!!! Gainfully employed was soon replaced by furlough and ultimately redundancy, and with the hospitality trade in various degrees of lock-down, the future was looking pretty bleak.   With a wealth of industry experience, from pub landlord, through wholesale sales executive to brewery business development manager, you hope that somewhere there is a company looking for someone with your knowledge and enthusiasm. And so, after some interesting ZOOM meetings, several unforeseen delays, and a huge dose of ‘being in the right place at the right time’, my Beartown adventure could finally begin.   Two months down the line,…

Cheshire East.

Posted on

East Cheshire Hospice. As part of our Covid Carebear initiative, we are continuing to distribute our specially crafted beer called “Care Bear” to those who deserve it most in our local area.  On Monday 16th of November, We paid a visit to the guys at East Cheshire Hospice, to show a little love.  Obviously as brewers we believe a beer tends to help things look a little rosier, and it seems that the guys at East Cheshire Hospice, share that sentiment… in a much more responsible way than us 😉    Alongside other campaigns that they are running throughout the year, they are trying to give the people they work with the best Christmas they can, and a bottle of…

Sale Sharks

Posted on

The irrational fear of the number 13 has been given a scientific name: “triskaidekaphobia”  Well there’s no triskaidekaphobes here, as on this day (November 13th 2020) we were presenting beer to our Premiership rugby heroes.   We are all avid followers of Sale Sharks, and it’s not very often you get to personally supply your favourite rugby team with your own Craft Beer.   So when “Franklyn Financial management” a new Sharks sponsor, and a Congleton based wealth management company, asked us to create the bespoke gift packs for the players and training team, we roared at the opportunity. Ben rocked up to the Sale Sharks training ground with a van full of beer, and 2 rule dress code. Rep the Bears,…
