According to Kate Gratto-Bachman, marketing assistant at Bear Republic Brewing Co., the Cloverdale, Calif.-based brewery will be bottling Pace Car Racer IPA, a 4 percent ABV session IPA that is brewed with Cascade, centennial and Citra hops. The IPA was released as a draft-only option last year.
The session IPA joins various other beers in the brewery’s Racer Series, including Racer (6.5 percent ABV), Racer 5 IPA (7.5 percent ABV) and Racer X (8.3 percent ABV) among others.
Pace Car Racer IPA will be packaged in six-packs of 12-ounce bottles and will be sent to retailers across Bear Republic’s entire distribution footprint when it is released in April.
