For those who haven't had it... this beer is TART! And this is, most likely, the last time you'll see it in our area.
One of the world's classic sour beer styles, Tartare is Bear Republic's interpretation of Berliner Weisse, the tart, low-alcohol beer style dubbed as "The Champagne of the North."

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.
