The Beer Cub (Ursus cervisia) is a monster closely related to the common bear. However, it differs in its behaviour, showing higher cognitive functions and stronger desire to drink.
Historically, Beer Cubs are believed to have been first mentioned and described in ancient chronicles of travelling zoologist Lady Dianne de la Fossey. The chronicles mention a new subspecies of the brown bear, that has smaller stature and behavioural differences.
|Day 5: Finally found some bears. They seem to be smaller in size and very playful. And I don't know if it's just me but... are they dancing? Decided to set up a camp nearby to observe more closely.

After a few days of observations, she noticed more significant differences in their behaviour.
|Day 7: That's absolutely fascinating, they're showing signs of reasoning and planning! Some of the bears seem to be preparing their meals in advance and seem to be using simple tools.

It was later discovered that the bears had been collecting berries and fruits to ferment into alcohol, storing them in different places for days and ultimately feasting on them with the intent of getting thoroughly hammered.
|Day 435: Still here. I'm mostly mosquito larvae at this point. These freckin' bears are STILL drunk. A couple of times a day, they wander over to another tree, reach into a hole, and pull out a deerskin or pigskin and start swigging from it. I don't even know what I'm supposed to be writing about this any more. I need a shower.

Beer Cubs love alcohol, especially beer. In the wild (deep in isolated areas), they will collect berries and store them in their dens to let them ferment. Amazed by the description of this behaviour in de la Fossey chronicles, a tavern owner and an esteemed brewer Lara Craftbeer decided to find out more. She wanted to gather more information about the process and try to create a new authentic recipe inspired by it.
|After days of observations, I've decided to go in. I hit a couple of different fermenting stashes and stole some pigskins to analyse the brewing process in different stages. They seem to be mostly using meaculpaberries and Passionless fruit. I'm unclear on the exact process, but so far I can tell they chew the fruit up and then fill a large pigskin with the mash, adding various ingredients varying from a group to group.

However, the majority of their population today lives near human settlements, where they try to acquire beer more easily and more often. Instances have been known, where an old experienced Beer Cub, who hunted down a few heroines, got a taste for flesh infused with beer. These Beer Cubs have been reported wandering around taverns at the outskirts of towns, hunting drunkards who travel home late in the night, not realising they're easy and tasty prey.
No heroine has ever dared to tame this monster because of the respect for freedom of beer, and fear of sharing her own beer.
