Bear Republic's® Racer X® Seasonal Releasing in Bottles This Fall

This fall, Bear Republic Brewing Company® fan favorite Racer X® is racing back to shelves, and arriving in a store near you. A seasonal release, Racer X® is one of our most exceptional offerings available, with highly limited production and distribution.


Receiving extraordinary praise from the beer community with a rating of 100 and a 95 on, the Racer X® recipe was originally created over eleven years ago by Brewmaster/COO, Richard "Ricardo" Norgrove, and has been released annually since, with limited availability nationwide.


Master Brewer, Peter Kruger, states, "Racer X is one of our most anticipated seasonal releases of the year. This year's version is drier, and because of this, the hops really pop. I hope people love drinking it as much as we love brewing it."


Racer X®, an elusive, limited edition Double IPA, is a f our-time California State Fair Award Winner, with three silver medals and one bronze.
