About Apex DIPA

With Summer in full swing, Bear Republic’s seasonal offering, Apex, is back to play. As part of Bear Republic’s Double IPA Series, this IPA (India Pale Ale) will be available for a limited time only.

A Strong IPA, Apex is full-bodied and packed full of hops. 8.25%

Brewmaster and COO, Richard G. Norgrove, states “We hope you enjoy our 2017 offering of Apex. This year’s version highlights some of our favorite hops, First Gold; Ella; Hallertau Blanc; Hull Melon; and Cascade.”

Rich and hoppy, this beer represents Bear Republic’s search for the elusive apex of malt and hops.

Norgrove continued, “Each year this beer focuses on different hops. It’s also what makes this beer so awesome to brew and to drink. I hope our fans continue to enjoy this journey, along with me.”

Making the ideal companion to your summer meal, Apex pairs perfectly with spicy and savory dishes. Hard and aged cheeses also act as a wonderful balance to the beer.

About Bear Republic

The story of Bear Republic, like most other craft brewers, begins with homebrewing. It was the spark for our passion to create quality, hand-crafted beers.

We are a family-owned brewery, located in the heart of Sonoma County, California. Why did we decide to craft beers among the grapevines of California’s world-famous Wine Country? Simple. This is where we are from. Founded by 3rd and 4th generation Sonoma County residents, we are family-owned and team-oriented.

From brewer to bottler, everyone that works (and plays) together at Bear Republic is dedicated to bringing you fresh, never-filtered craft beer.

Our first beer, Ricardo’s Red Rocket Ale, is an example of our hop-forward approach without fear of stepping outside the style-guidelines. Each of our beers, from our flagship IPA, Racer 5, to any of our specialty brewpub-only releases, are carefully crafted with pride in Sonoma County, California.
