Available in January 2018, Bear Republic’s seasonal offerings, Café Racer 15 and Big Bear Black Stout, are coming back to shelves through March 2018.

Café Racer 15 will be available on tap at the Bear Republic Healdsburg and Rohnert Park brewpub locations beginning Friday, January 5th.

Big Bear Black Stout continues to be on tap daily.

Beer Stats:
Café Racer 15

ABV: 9.75% –  IBUs: 100+ –  Color: Golden  –  Double IPA

Untappd: 4 stars – Beer Advocate: 4.23 out of 5

Silver Medal winner at the 2012 Great American Beer Festival® in the Imperial India Pale Ale category.
Tasting Notes:
Featured Hops: Citra, Amarillo, Cascade, and Chinook

Malts: 2-row barley and honey

Yeast: BRBC Ale Yeast

Overall: Café Racer 15 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…

Available in 22 oz. bottles, six-packs, and draft

Beer Stats:
Big Bear Black Stout

ABV: 8.1% –  IBUs: 55 –  Color: Black  –  American Stout

Untappd: 4 stars – Beer Advocate: 4.13 out of 5

Silver Medal winner at the 2007 Great American Beer Festival® in the American-Style Stout category.

Gold Medal winner at the 2002 World Beer Cup in the Specialty Beer category.
Tasting Notes:
Featured Hops: Centennial and Cascade

Malts: American pale, crystal, roasted barley, black, molasses, and brown sugar

Yeast: BRBC Ale Yeast

Overall: Big Bear is a big, black, stout you can really sink your teeth into. Can you taste the Louisiana brown molasses and golden brown sugar? They add to the mouthfeel and compliment the extensive malt bill. The bold, roasty, caramel malt flavor is balanced by Centennial and Cascade hops. Too big for an American Stout and not quite a Russian Imperial, Big Bear Black Stout will warm you through and through-it’s a great way to start or finish any evening.

Available in 22 oz. bottles, six-packs, and draft
