Café Racer 15 to Join Bear Republic’s Bottled Selections this Summer

Cloverdale, CA- Coming to you this July, Bear Republic Brewing Company will be adding another popular, award-winning beer to their seasonal bottled selections. Café Racer 15 will be arriving in select areas of California, Oregon, Washington, Colorado, Pennsylvania, New York, Massachusetts, and Virginia during the first week of July. This will shortly be followed by distribution in Maryland, Texas, Ohio, Arizona, and additional California and New York markets.

A Double IPA, Café Racer 15 is a Silver Medal Winner at the 2012 Great American Beer Festival in the Imperial India Pale Ale Category up against 128 other entries.

Brewmaster/COO Richard “Ricardo” Norgrove states, “Café represents to Bear Republic the final medal win in the IPA categories, with Gold, Silver, and Bronze. It’s very much like hitting a cycle in baseball. Enjoy our newest take on the Double IPA category. Stop in and stay awhile.”

Description: Café Racer 15Ôäó features aromas of bright citrus and resinous pine from the generous use of Citra, Amarillo, Cascade and Chinook hops which are complimented by a dry malt finish. The result is a high revving Double IPA that is loud and assertive, much like the rebellious street racers who inspired it. Never ride alone…

Availability: Limited 22 oz. bottles and draft, beginning in July

Hops: Citra, Amarillo, Cascade, Chinook
