Bath-based Electric Bear Brewing has expanded it’s brewing capacity as it celebrates its first birthday.

As a result of growing demand and sales, Electric Bear has now confirmed it will add two 20-barrel fermentation tanks to it’s brewery on Brassmill Lane, Bath.

The new fermenters and 2,000l conditioning tank will see the brewery increase its brew days to four per week to keep up with nationwide distribution. 

Chris Lewis, founder of Electric Bear Brewing, said; “It’s been an incredible first year and we’ve been overwhelmed by support from the trade in terms of stocking our beer and the locals visiting the tap room.

"Year one was all about producing consistently good beers but we also wanted to have some fun and experiment with flavours which we’ve been doing with our World Series range.

"Year two is going to see us being more experimental and placing our focus on keg beers. The reaction we’ve had to our World Series range of keg beers has been outstanding and it’s what we enjoy brewing. Expect to see plenty more interesting flavours and beer styles coming out of the brewery.” 

Since launching in July 2015 Electric Bear has been gaining stocks and listings in pubs, bars and independent bottleshops across the country.

It has recently taken part in tap takeovers with London-based The Craft Beer Co, The Famous Royal Navy Volunteer in Bristol and Tilt, Birmingham.   

The brewery has also recently appointed new head of sales, Ryan Read, to continue a nationwide sales push with a focus on key cities including Birmingham, Manchester, Leeds, Sheffield and London.

Additionally, a birthday beer is being brewed and will be available from August.
