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 Microbrewery is a family owned distributing craft brewery 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 room.
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. Get directions to the brewery and come by for a pint or just to pick up a Growler from the tap to go!
