This is brewmaster and owner Tim Gallon adding fresh hops to our Harvest Hops Ale. The hops were grown locally and added to the beer within hours of picking. "I take every chance I get to incorporate something local into the beer. This is what makes a local brewery so special."
Black Bear Brewing is a family owned and operated craft brewery, roastery and tap room. Our beers are available on draft at many bars and restaurants across the state of Maine as well as at the brewery tap rooms.
Located in the heart of downtown, at 19 Mill St. Orono, Maine, we installed a 10bbl brewhouse in 2007 and began operation in 2008. In October of 2013, we opened a small tap room where we serve pints and sell Growlers. We brew a variety of beers and styles for our tap room.
In late 2018, we started roasting coffee in our Orono location, offering our local communities delicious, mindfully sourced, fresh roasted coffee. We sell whole bean or custom ground coffee by the pound at both locations.
