We are a small veteran and woman owned micro brewery (2BBL) with 12 beers on tap year round striving to carry 4 dark beers at all time. Our beers are made from whole grains with an emphasis on organic and local ingredients whenever possible. Our love for craft beer started in July of 1997 at the Original Saratoga Brew Pub, Saratoga Springs, NY when we were first introduced to a splendid red ale brewed on premises. We had such a great experience that my husband, the Growling Bear, begun reading and inquiring about home brewing in his spare time and for Christmas that year we invested in his first Home Brew Kit. It was also that same year that we lovely inherited our nickname "Bear" and "Duck" after a pajama party. In December of 2013 my husband corporate career came to a cross road forcing us to make a choice. By then his abilities, knowledge and skills were well rounded so we decided to take a chance and that year marked the inception of GROWLING BEAR BREWING COMPANY.
