2018 Full Chili Bear Lineup

Write a Review

The Chili Bear Full 2018 Lineup includes an assortment of 6 Chili Bear hot sauces in red, orange, and green and a Chili Bear poster!

Our salt brined chili bears are lovingly made with local peppers and local beers. Local-grown peppers ferment with salt and local beer for a few months in our barrels. We then process the fermented chilis for a smooth hot sauce. Our 2018 peppers came from The Farm at Sunnyside, Pleitez Produce and Rainbow Hill Farm. We partnered with a local brewery/distillery for each of our bears. These folks are DC Brau, Atlas Brewery, Green Hat Gin, Right Proper and Pen Druid.

    Full Line Up

    All the flavors I received in my full line up are amazing! Although I was hoping to get one on the toppers pictured on one of the chili bears. It's easy to get too much when pouring right out of the bottle.
