the bear

Growing up on the Central Coast surrounded by vineyards and winemaking, Adam’s gravitation towards brewing started at an early age.  The brewing ideas all launched in converted wine making equipment – mostly with mixed results.  But the hook was set when the first recipe for Double Barrel Ale was attempted.  All that was needed to take this idea beyond a pipe dream was a partner.  Many were approached with the idea but none were interested.  That is until he persuaded one lone Englishman who happened to be married to his sister.
