Bath’s beer scene is about to be given a boost as an ambitious new craft brewery and tap room is set to open, with Electric Bear Brewing Co. preparing for their public launch in early August.
CSquared advised on the leasehold acquisition of the premises on Brassmill Lane, on the site of a former Maltings giving it a strong link to Britain’s rich brewing heritage.
Building works are currently in progress at the 5,500 square foot unit transforming it from an empty building into a craft brewery and taproom.
Speaking about the impending launch of the brewery Mr Lewis said; “I’m a passionate beer fan and have been a keen home brewer for years.
“The craft beer scene is exploding across the UK with lots of people doing some really interesting things however I believe there is still plenty of room to grow and innovate. And that’s what we want Electric Bear to do.
On a recent trip to the US I was really impressed with how the local brewery was a hub for the community and this is something we’re passionate about here in Bath.”
Award-winning head brewer Guillermo Alvarez will be creating five core beers for the Electric Bear range along with seasonal ‘World Series’ beers inspired by ingredients, styles and brewing techniques from around the world.
Details on the beers are being kept under wraps until the launch.
