THE HISTORY OF BEAR ISLAND
Centuries ago, on a mysterious island in the middle of Faversham Creek, there lived a wild man and a bear.
Not much was known about them. Just that they'd one day washed ashore. And together had forged a life of rugged adventure, alone on the island.
It's to them that we raise a glass every day.
Our name and our brews are a salute to that long-forgotten spirit of mystery and adventure.
As well as our great trading past. Combining native British hops with hops imported from the US.
EAST COAST PALE ALE
The beer that started it all, Bear Island East Coast Pale Ale celebrates a fusion of British and US beer styles and flavours.
Cascade and Amarillo hops imported from the US combine with native British Boadicea to create an award-winning beer.
A deep golden pale ale, bursting with grassy pine, citrus and fruit aromas courtesy of US Cascade and Amarillo hops, this pale ale offers light caramel notes on the palate with a touch of spice and well-rounded bitterness from the UK Boadicea hops.

TRIPLE HOPPED LAGER
A full-flavoured lager crafted using a trio of distinctive hops, with Challenger from the UK, Saaz from the Czech Republic and US Mosaic.
The bright orange colour scheme reflects the punchy, hop-forward flavours and aromas.
Notable fruit aromas with hints of mango and citrus compliment the hop-forward tropical flavours. A well-balanced beer, the hop combination gives a smooth bitterness to finish.
