Sonoma County is an amazing place to live, work, and play. We are proud to call it home for five generations. Our communities are pretty beat up right now, but we are strong, generous, caring, and eager to rebuild. Bear Republic Brewing Company is joining forces with Russian River Brewing and the King Ridge Foundation, and will be brewing a Bear Republic version for the Sonoma Pride release. Brewed Northern Sonoma County style with Super Galena, El Dorado, Citra, and Ekuanot hops for a juicy flavor and aroma, this Sonoma Pride beer is complimented by a soft malt character. Click here for more information about the beer.
We are currently working on additional collaborations to be brewed with other Sonoma County breweries to support the victims and firefighters of the 2017 Sonoma County wildfires.
Bear Republic will be supplying ingredients and manpower to St. Florian’s Brewery in a mutual aid effort to brew another version of Sonoma Pride.
We are currently working on the details with 101 North Brewing for a similar collaboration, with the efforts supporting the rehabilitation of Cardinal Newman High School, the alma mater of the brewmasters of 101 North and Bear Republic.
Many of the BRBC family members have lost their homes and have little to rely on. For the next 30 days, 50 cents on every case of Bear Republic beer sold will be donated to raise funds to help those affected. We are reaching out to our wholesalers and asking for their support through matching funds up to 50 cents per case or a one-time donation.
Many of our distributors nationwide also committing to this cause, making it a truly national effort.
As we are coming together to support this cause, we ask that you consider supporting our employees who have lost their homes. Five Bear Republic employees, including Head Brewer Rob Kent, Cami Kent, Casey Clark, Kaylee Singkeo, and Shawn Anderson, need your help. While there are many people in the same boat out there, anything will help in supporting them. Please donate if you can at www.youcaring.com/bearrepublic-employee-firerelief.
Bear Republic’s brewpubs will be offering FREE MEALS to the first responders involved with the local fires at both restaurant locations in Healdsburg and Rohnert Park, California.
Thank you for your continued support, kind words, and prayers during these difficult times.
The Owners of Bear Republic Brewing Co.
