6 Bears & a Goat Brewing Company

simply better brew

Our logo is a weathered life ring, symbolic of our nautical past.

6 Bears & A Goat is a brewery located in Fredericksburg, VA, set to open this fall. We are named for our seven founders: six retirees from the U.S. Coast Guard (the Bears) and one from the U.S. Navy (the Goat).

Our beer philosophy: create recipes with a distinguishable but subtle enhancement, staying true to style while enriching the customer with “simply better brew”. Our six flagship beers will include: Red IPA, Golden Kolsch, Rye IPA, American Pale Ale, Scottish Ale, and Irish Extra Stout. There will also be a rotating number of seasonal and limited-time brews.

We are thrilled to be partnered with Chef Joy Crump and Restaurateur Beth Black of FoodE and Mercantile, who will be crafting a custom menu for the full-service restaurant located in our brew house.

Our purpose is simple: create an environment with quality beer and food, where the community can gather, share stories and have some fun…great beer, great food, great atmosphere.
