— ABOUT —

WHO WE ARE

My Name is Dave Peters and Bear Creek Brews has been a dream for over 30 years. Ever since the beginnings of the American Beer Renaissance, I have wanted to brew my own great tasting beer and make it available to the beer drinking public and help people learn about and appreciate beer. Coming from Oshkosh, Wisconsin, beer brewing is in my veins.

 

In 2000, my wonderful wife bought me the "everything but the kitchen sink" homebrew kit and it all started. After a few extract brew sessions, I built a 12.5 gallon brew sculpture and graduated to all-grain brewing, and things really got serious. Now after over 200 brews, BCB is in business!  We now have a fabulous 25-gallon brew sculpture to complement our original system and can now brew a barrel at a time. As Bear Creek Brews we are up to 1165 brews and counting.

 

The brewery is small, we call it a Nano-Brewery, we are hidden in the middle of 38 acres of woods in the heart of North Carolina. Most everything is recycled or made in-house. The Brew-House is an old 20' steel cargo container, the Beer-Garden brew patio is recycled flagstone and granite, nestled under spreading oaks and pines, our cooling water is stored rain water from a cistern, the chickens just love the spent mash. All the ingredients are as fresh as possible, some are even home grown. American malts, hops, and yeast are the mainstay of our beers. The water is from our 450' well and is just as pure and clean as can be. Our small batch brewing lets us assure you that each keg or bottle of beer will be as fresh and wonderful as though we were brewing it for ourselves to drink.

— BEER —

JOY'S BLONDE ALE

This wonderfully crisp, clean Blonde Ale is for those who enjoy a great beer taste, not your father's light, fizzy institutional beer.

 

Brewed with American and British Malts, lightly hopped with a distinctive Saaz Hop and fermented to have very little residual sugar, this ale is sure to be a favorite when you want that cold, cool one!

 

4.2% A.B.V.

 

DIRTY BLONDE ALE

Brewed with American, British, and German Malts, we added a touch of crystal malt and our light blonde turned a shade dark, just a little naughty. Still lightly hopped with that distinctive Cascade Hop, and fermented to have no residual sugar.

 

4.2% A.B.V.

 

HONEY PALE ALE

This Flagship Beer of Bear Creek is a mild English Style Pale Ale. Brewed with the addition of Pure Clover Honey it mellows the citrus cascade hop! All the sugar is converted to alcohol so it is not a sweet beer, it just goes down easy.

 

6.6% A.B.V.

 

WIT BIER

Belgian Style Wheat Beer. Brewed with fresh Coriander Seed and Bitter Orange Peel, we add just a bit of Orange Blossom Honey. This unfiltered Belgian Wheat is what those other Big Industrial Beers wanted to be!

 

5.5% A.B.V.

 

EXTRA SPECIAL BITTER

This is the "Go To" British style pub ale. Nice smooth malty brown ale with just a hint of bitter in the end. Not an I.P.A. Just a great quaffer.

 

5.25% A.B.V.

 

RED IRISH STYLE ALE

Red is traditionally styled Irish Ale with a hefty helping of malt, a little taste of roasted barley and some wonderful red color from the crystal malt, classically hopped with Fuggles and Kent Goldings. This is a smooth and slightly hoppy brew.

 

4.4% A.B.V.

 

SCOTCH ALE

Big and Malty. Five different malts and lightly hopped, this is your classic Scottish Style Ale. Enjoy at Scottish room temperature at 50 to 55 degrees. This beer is known to be a bit "wee heavy".

 

6.55% A.B.V.

 

ALT BIER

German style "Old Beer".  Big, Robust, Dark Brown Ale. Lots of malt, nice hop kick up front. Very drinkable.

 

5.0% A.B.V.

 

KÖLSCH BEER

A special Cologne style wheat beer using a special yeast to create a beer that starts out as an ale but finishes as a lager.  Crisp and clean without the traditional Hefeweisen funkiness. This lighter style beer is great year round. Easy to drink.

 

4.5% A.B.V.

 

Enjoy our product when you purchase one or more of the following: 6 packs, growlers, 5 gallon kegs, 7.75 kegs and/or 15 gallon kegs of beer.
