Hops in hand

Black Bear Brewery is Orono’s family owned and operated microbrewery and tap room. We distribute draft beer in Maine and sell pints, tasters and growlers from the brewery.  We take pride in our hand-crafted, small-batch beers.  We use the highest quality ingredients and the greatest care to bring you the finest products. We hope you enjoy them as much as we do.

Please visit our news section for announcements and upcoming events. If you’re looking for details about one of our beers, we have detailed information available about our regular products.
