As Natives of West Virginia, it has long been their dream to bring quality hand-crafted beer back to the state. Originally from Elkins and Helvetia, they were raised on easy drinking beers and homemade wine. Curiosity eventually got the best of them, and they combined the two – their first batch of homebrew was conceived in the early 90’s with home brewing equipment, books, and some ingredients handed down from their parent’s home brewing days in the 70’s. Since then they’ve learned a lot about brewing professionally. They’ve developed easy drinking and well-rounded beers with their own state of the art brewing equipment. They sold their first beer in October 2005 and now they’re distributing throughout the Canaan Valley, Davis, Thomas, Elkins, Morgantown and Fayetteville. That’s their story so far - check it out below.

Fueled by Snack Cakes and Energy Drinks, the boys pulled this recipe out of their exhausted noggins. You'll be glad they did. Easy drinking, full flavored and always leaving you wanting more- Cougar Bait works.

Here's a pick of there brewery in Frederick!
