Bear Republic - California dreaming
The Love Wine team are delighted to bring to you exclusive beers all the way from Sonoma, California - Bear Republic! We have been looking to import these beers for 2 years now but due to the recent California drought Bear republic were unable to export.
The story of Bear Republic, like most other craft brewers, begins with homebrewing. It was the spark for their passion to create quality, hand-crafted beers. Still a family-owned brewery, located in the heart of Sonoma County, California. Founded by 3rd and 4th generation Sonoma County residents, they 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. Their first beer, Ricardo’s Red Rocket Ale, is an example of a hop-forward approach without fear of stepping outside the style-guidelines. Each beer, from their flagship IPA, Racer 5, to any of the specialty brewpub-only releases, are carefully crafted with pride in Sonoma County, California.
The team at Bear Republic are dedicated stewards of the community and the environment and make their beer in the most sustainable way. Investment in extensive solar arrays and a state of the art wastewater pretreatment system help to further reduce impact on the environment. A typical brewery will use up to 7 gallons of water to make 1 gallon of beer. Bear Republic has worked hard to achieve a 3.5 to 1 water use to beer produced ratio in Sonoma Counties drought stressed region.
We are delighted to bring you the following selection to our little Island dwelling:
