Bearhat Beginnings

What happens when you put foodies and micro nerds in the same room? Food microbiology is born! In the summer of 2017, a passionate team of intraprenuers at Blue Marble collaborated and created flavorful ferments. After much time of tinkering with fermented ginger, cinchona bark, and a variety of botanical and herbal blends, Bearhat’s flagship beverage was born - P&C Tonic.

Bearhat Inspiration

From the heart of the adventurer, this name embodies our love for the outdoors as Bearhat is a unique flat-topped mountain in Glacier National Park. We also love the mental image of bears wearing hats!

P&C Inspiration

As food scientists and intrapreneurs, we wanted to pay tribute in some way to the scientists before us. Our first product's name was inspired by the French chemist and pharmacist, Pierre Joseph Pelletier & Joseph Bienaimé Caventou. Their collaboration led to the discovery of tonic's key ingredient, quinine.
