Maple season in a glass, Bear Hug Brown Ale is a hearty, robust and assertively hopped brew with a toasty and pleasantly resinous aroma with notes of roasted malt, chocolate and maple. A late kettle addition of locally produced maple syrup from Back Fields Farm in Eliot, Maine provides a pure maple flavor on the finish without any residual sweetness. $1 of every draft pour of Bear Hug Brown Ale will go to the Kilham Black Bear Rehabilitation Center in Lyme, NH which takes in orphaned and abandoned black bear cubs and helps prepare them to be released back into the wild.
