Service Disabled Veteran Owned | Navy, Separated | Member since May 15th, 2015

Bear Island Brewing Company is owned and run by a husband and wife veteran team, both service disabled from US NAVY EOD. They are currently a very small, 3.5 barrel system literally out of their two-car residential garage!!!!

With the help of their local family, they have been getting their beer out there for the Treasure Valley to enjoy. They are currently working on their expansion into a commercial facility, an old firehouse! Cheers!

Please mention you proudly found Bear Island Brewing Co on Veteran Owned Business (VOB)!

Comments on the Military and Business Ownership

EOD (Explosive ordnance disposal) is one of the hardest jobs in the military, especially Navy EOD who must be trained in not only all types of explosives but also chemical, biological and nuclear hazards as well as diving, skydiving, logistics, etc. All of my training and experiences have taught me to be an expert problem solver with an intense amount of ambition which create a "never-quit" attitude. This has prepared me better than anything else could have to be an entrepreneur. Cheers!
