Bear Republic Out Races the Pack!

The votes are in and Bear Republic's Racer 5 IPA edged out Rogues Dead Guy Ale to go on sale this week at a jaw dropping $4.49 for a 22 0z. bottle! Bear's flagship IPA was previously listed at $5.37, so you'll be saving close to 20 percent this week. Please note that twelve ounce bottles are not part of the sale.

The Racer 5 is a big IPA, loaded with Cascade and it's high alpha acid cousin Columbus hops. Traditionally a bittering hop, Bear decided to use a large amount of the Columbus as an aromatic to give the beer it's unique hop profile.

Bear Republic picked up a Gold medal at the 1999 Great American Beer Festival (GABF) with the Racer 5. To see other awards, check out the brewery's website.
