Brainchild of Lloyd Brown, Grey Bear is a bar consultancy and training company operating in the South West of England.
Having worked in pubs and bars for decades, we have gathered a range of experience and knowledge in how bartending and mixology works and now, we want to pass that knowledge to you. We work alongside some of the best bartenders, pubs, bars and restaurants in the area through residencies, tasting evenings, bespoke cocktail menu design and employee training on a freelance basis. Alongside this, the Grey Bear Bar Company also cater for private parties and functions offering a variety of services, including wedding bartending, birthday parties for young and old and cocktail mixing classes for those that want to learn more about mixology and get some hands-on experience! These classes are perfect for anyone with an interest in cocktails and make for a great event activity for hen and stag dos, birthday parties or just a fun activity for friends or family.
It isn’t just drinks we know well, it is also the county of Dorset. Lloyd was born and bred in Dorset and has worked in and with bars across the region. Our cocktail menus and mixology classes use locally sourced ingredients and spirits from the local region and we make sure to stock our own bars using local suppliers. Not only that, but our own menus also feature a range of Dorset themed cocktails including the Bridport Dagger.
There’s plenty to look forward to so keep up to date with everything Grey Bear by following us on Facebook for all the upcoming events in your local area! Don’t hesitate to drop us an email for all your private party needs and we can tailor-make your next big event or help you with your own bar start-ups or menus.
