Bear Republic to Release Racer x

Sonoma County, CA-This fall, Bear Republic Brewing Company® fan favorite Racer X® is racing back to shelves, and arriving in a store near you. A seasonal release, Racer X® is one of our most exceptional offerings available, with highly limited production and distribution.

Receiving extraordinary praise from the beer community with a rating of 100 on and a 95 on, the Racer X┬« recipe was originally created over eleven years ago by Brewmaster/COO, Richard “Ricardo” Norgrove, and has been released annually since, with limited availability nationwide.

Master Brewer, Peter Kruger, states, “Racer X is one of our most anticipated seasonal releases of the year. This year’s version is drier, and because of this, the hops really pop. I hope people love drinking it as much as we love brewing it.”

Racer X®, an elusive, limited edition Double IPA, is a four time California State Fair Award Winner, with three silver medals and one bronze.

Description: Racer X® is an uncommon Double India Pale Ale which puts a California twist on English brewing traditions by adding an assertive hop aroma and bitterness that compliments the firm malt backbone. Like its little brother Racer 5®, Racer X® is balance in a bottle.

Pairing Suggestions: Barbecue, Spicy Foods, Beef, Poultry, Pork Dishes, Bold Cheeses, Aged Cheddar & Hard Cheeses

Availability: Limited 22 oz. bottles and draft

Hops: Cascade, Columbus, Centennial

ABV: 8.3% – IBUs: 100+ – Double IPA

You can find Racer X® locally at our brewpub in Healdsburg starting Friday, October 10.
