Bear Republic Moves Pace Car Racer IPA to Year Round Availability

Bear Republic Pace Car Racer 6 pack

Sonoma County, CA – Bear Republic Brewing Company is excited to announce yet another addition to the Racer family. Previously only available on draft, Pace Car Racer will be offered year-round in six-packs as part of Bear Republic’s core lineup.

Brewmaster/COO Richard “Ricardo” Norgrove states, “We are thrilled to introduce Racer 5’s little brother, Pace Car Racer.”

A Session IPA, Pace Car Racer is set for national release beginning April 11, and will begin shipping to wholesalers immediately. It will be made available to all of Bear Republic’s territories throughout the country.

The little brother of Racer 5, Pace Car Racer is brewed with high flavor pale ale malt, light crystal, and a touch of rye for a smooth and silky body. This IPA is hoppy and quaffable, making it perfect for a hot Spring day at the track or a backyard barbecue.

Norgrove adds, “It’s a sessionable and easy to drink IPA, which makes it a perfect beer to pair with a nice, juicy burger on a warm day.”

Hoppy aromas of pine and citrus, with a smooth malt flavor that empties your glass at a speedy pace. This session IPA is the newest addition to the Racer™ family.
