THE BEER HERE
IS NEAR & DEAR

Glasses full of Baerlic Beer

Literally translating to ‘of barley’ in old english, bærlic reiterates the fundamental idea that all things, no matter how complex or involved, can always be traced backward to a single, simple core or point of view.

Our point of view comes from a belief that we are all in this together and that our actions shape our world – by being honest, we are approachable; by being consistent, we are trusted; by being considerate, we can sleep at night; and by choosing to keep it simple, we are able to do this really well.

BAERLIC BEERS OUT IN THE WILD

Unlike most breweries, we self-distribute our beer throughout the Portland metro area. That means that all the hard work of relationship building and maintenance (we love our accounts!), account management (staying organized) and beer delivery (actual heavy lifting) we do ourselves. We believe this keeps us more connected with the end consumer (you) and let’s us speak more clearly for ourselves. So, in addition to our taproom, you’ll find Baerlic beers at these Portland area bars, restaurants and other fine establishments.

WHAT THE HELL IS A BAERLIC?

Say bear-lick…like a bear licking the foam off a frosty mug. Etymologically, it’s an old-english adjective meaning “of barley.” As in there’s beer and then there’s baerlic beer! But feel free to use it whenever you want to describe something that you can’t get enough of. As in: “These waffles are baerlic!”

THE WHO’S WHO OF WHAT’S WHAT

Born out of an undying passion for the perfect pint of beer, Baerlic Brewing Company is a collaborative entity created by us, Ben Parsons and Richard Hall. After years of brewing on the small scale in a basement and winning numerous awards in amateur competitions all over the region, we decided that we should finally give in to the voices in our heads and move toward a small scale production brewery and taproom.

When we say The Beer Here Is Near And Dear, we mean it. We strive to work in as close a proximity as possible for all our ingredients, materials, vendors, supplies, and suppliers. And that allows us to absolutely love the beer that we brew.
