Sonoma County, CA — With Summer in full swing, Bear Republic’s seasonal offering, Apex, is back to play. As part of Bear Republic’s Double IPA Series, this IPA (India Pale Ale) will be available for a limited time only, July through September.
A Strong IPA, Apex is full-bodied and packed full of hops.
Brewmaster and COO, Richard G. Norgrove, states “We hope you enjoy our 2017 offering of Apex. This year’s version highlights some of our favorite hops, First Gold; Ella; Hallertau Blanc; Hull Melon; and Cascade.”
Rich and hoppy, this beer represents Bear Republic’s search for the elusive apex of malt and hops.
Norgrove continued, “Each year this beer focuses on different hops. It’s also what makes this beer so awesome to brew and to drink. I hope our fans continue to enjoy this journey, along with me.”
Making the ideal companion to your summer meal, Apex pairs perfectly with spicy and savory dishes. Hard and aged cheeses also act as a wonderful balance to the beer.
Apex will be distributed for a limited time to all available markets in draft, 6-packs, and 22 oz. bottles.
Bear Republic’s Healdsburg brewpub will have Apex available on tap beginning Friday, June 30, at 5:00 pm.
