A bear created by cartoonist Phil Frank, found in the Sierras by The Big Guy & given to his Lady. I now travel with them when they go on adventures.

As you can see they are a small brewery. It all fits in this one room. But they get good results. Worth visiting.

They are even aging some beers in wood barrels. Hope I get to taste some later. It adds extra flavor.
