The original concept for ThirstyBear Brewing Company is simple: to pair the ultimate social beverage, beer, with the ultimate social food, tapas. I, Ron Silberstein, founder and original brew master, envisioned a space that combined artisan, hand-crafted beers with artisan Spanish cuisine – a cuisine that could never be confused with pub grub or typical brewpub food.We have beers for everyone; but not every beer is for anyone! The majority of our styles are appropriate as session beers, beers that beg the drinker to have more than one, beers that are anchored in traditional but ferment innovation. Some of our ThirstyBear beers are designed to push the envelope of flavor and style well beyond the session beer. ThirstyBear offers the beer drinker traditional beers, unique interpretations of traditional beers and wholly unique beers. Our ingredients must respect our earth and our bodies. Thus we are San Francisco's first and only CCOF certified organic brewery. Our beers are good for you and growing those grains and hops did not pollute the earth or the farm workers with chemicals, pesticides and petroleum based fertilizers.
