The name Bear Tent came from a good friend Carlo M. De Ferrari who researched the brewery property and found in the local archives the story of the ‘The Old Bear Tent’
“approaching Wood’s Diggings from the west by the Stockton road, the dividing line between that camp and Ohio Diggings was marked by a large tent pitched adjacent to the trail upon which was stretched the skin of an enormous grizzly bear. Known as the “Bear Tent,” it housed a tavern in which the traveling public was provided with a wide selection of liquid refreshment and a narrow supply of miners food” – Carlo M. De Ferrari, All that Glittered
