Bear Republic Beers


I had Hop Rod Rye ale last night and honestly I would have to put it in my top 5 beers I have ever tasted. It was incredible. It was also the first Bear Republic offering I have had the pleasure to enjoy.

What are their other worthwile offerings?

My gold standard for hoppy rye beers.

Racer 5 is their west coast IPA. It is excellent. One of my gateway beers after having it on tap at The Chimes.

Racer X is their double IPA and supposed to be good. If you get a hold of any, bring it to BR!

The Brown Tribute Ale is nice brown IPA.

love the Hop Rod Rye.

Hop Rod, Racer 5, Racer X, Red Rocket Ale are readily available around the H. Have not had the stout or other specialties they have. Those 4 are some of my favorites though.

One thing I don't like about Bear Republic is that I can't find a date on any of their bottles.

Racer 5 and Racer X are both great...and you gotta love the name. Black Stout is very good. I don't care for the Hop Rod....too much malty rye in it for me. They have a lot od stuff we don't get in Texas that I'd like to try i.e Cafe Racer, Mach 10...

my wife and I stumbled across this brewery while in Headlesburg a few years ago. Without any prior knowledge I "sampled" a few of their beers and have been in love ever since. By far my go to IPA; I love all of their stuff.

Hop Rod Rye is my second favorite beer ever. Absolutely delicious.
