Racer X Double India Pale Ale brewed by the Bear Republic Brewing

Racer X Double India Pale Ale brewed by the Bear Republic Brewing Company - Healdsburg, CA

Bear Republic is excited to debut a new 22oz. seasonal product, the elusive Racer X Double India Pale Ale. Racer X is the first in a series of Bear Republic's seasonal 22oz bottles scheduled for release in 2012 and will be available in the San Francisco Bay Area during SF Craft Beer Week, February 10th - 19th. The recipe for Racer X was originally created over 10 years ago by our Brew Master/Owner, Richard "Ricardo" G. Norgrove, and has been released in kegs annually with limited availability nationwide...until now!

Like our other packages, the Racer X artwork is the hand drawn creation of our Brew Master, Ricardo, and offers subtle hints towards his you see the "5"?

Join the brew crew at the pub on Friday, February 10th from 11:30am-1:30pm for this special release and have your bottle signed by Ricardo (Artist, Brew Master, Owner, Driver, COO...we could go on...).

Racer X 22oz bottles will be available exclusively at Bear Republic Brewing Company's Pub & Restaurant in Healdsburg, CA on February 10-14th. If you miss it at the pub, look for Racer X 22oz limited release bottles throughout Sonoma County and the San Francisco Bay Area.

Beer Review by Beer Advocate
Appearance: Apricot-orange in color, clear and sudsy. Lots of lacing as I twirl the glass.

Aroma: Citrus and line bouquet, strong. Lots of orange zest, blending nicely with wafts of caramelly sweet bread. Plenty of alcohol volatiles propel the aromas.

Taste: Crisp floral hops rush the palate, citrusy and fresh; oily and resinous as well. The malt-backbone yields enough support, exposing notes of honey and toffee. The alcohol isn't masked, but held in check by the huge palate - the brew isn't boozy at all. Finish is perfectly bitter-sweet.

Mouthfeel: Rich and oily. Seeps into every crevice of your a good way.

Overall: Bear Republic is arguably the Godfather brewery of the West Coast IPA, so it's no surprise that their big hoppy IPA is a standard-bearer. Anytime I see this on tap it's my first order.
Bear Republic Brewing Company
Bear Republic Brewing Company (Bear Republic) was founded by third and fourth generation Sonoma County residents. From the humble beginning of home brewing to the demanding process of commercial brewing, came the realization that to produce the distinctive flavors and aroma we found appealing required the founding of our own Brew Pub. Through this process owners Richard R Norgrove, and wife Sandy, Richard G Norgrove, (Brew Master) and wife Tami, developed the style and mark of Bear Republic's award winning, hand-crafted lagers and ales. Located in historic Healdsburg, California, where hop kilns from another era are still visible, our products are brewed and aged using the traditional "art" of the masters. Bear Republic's family business is unique, from the mother who greets you at the door, to the son who brews the ales, the father who pulls tap and the daughter-in-law who keeps the books. The Norgroves invite you inside for healthy food and drink for the enjoyment of the whole family. Our goal is to create and cultivate a Brew Pub and Restaurant that the locals can call their own and that makes visitors feel at home. We work hard at fostering a sense of loyalty and tradition from eras gone by.
