Bear Republic Releases Apex Special IPA

Sonoma County, CA – Bear Republic Brewing Company is proud to announce the release of ApexÔäó Special IPA in draft and 22oz bottles. The third addition to their hop forward seasonal lineup, ApexÔäó is intensely hopped with Mosaic, Simcoe and Citra and balanced with a rich and malty backbone. Look for Apex starting this week in California, followed by distribution to select US markets.

Brewmaster/COO Richard “Ricardo” Norgrove states, “The synthesis of American and English malts, aggressively hopped with Pacific Northwest hops, this beer truly represents our Brew Team’s current thinking about the essence of IPA…”

About the beer:

Apex won the Silver Medal at the 2006 Great American Beer Festival in the American-Style India Pale Ale Category up against 94 other entries.

Description: Apex: The highest point, the culmination or climax. In racing, the apex of the turn is approached differently as conditions dictate, but always with a forward looking mindset. This beer is the culmination of years of brewing and drinking hop forward IPAs. We reserve the right to move forward, to advance the style to the next Apex.
