Bear Republic Introduces Legacy Series Beers

Brewing handcrafted beers for over twenty years, Bear Republic Brewing Company has announced the launch of their Legacy Series, a catalog of craft beers that have helped define the brewery’s legacy.

Master Brewer Peter Kruger stated, “While our team is constantly creating new recipes, the Legacy Series is a testament to the success of the great classic Bear Republic beers that have been a part of our portfolio for over twenty years.”

The Legacy Series is a rotating cycle of four Bear Republic staples, available seasonally in 22 oz. bottles and on draft, starting with Red Rocket Ale® from April-June.

A bastardized Scottish style red ale that traces its origins to our homebrew roots. This full bodied and hoppy brew finishes on the palate with sweet, caramel malt flavors. The complex malt bill mixes distinctive pale, caramel, and roasted malts with aromatic Cascade and Centennial hops.

Red Rocket is the brew that started it all. An example of Bear Republic’s hop forward approach without fear of stepping outside the style guidelines, this was the Brewmaster’s original quest for brewing excellence with no boundaries. This is a beer with many stories to tell.

From July to September will be Hop Rod Rye™: A high gravity IPA brewed with 18% rye malt. Hop Rod Rye has a floral hop aroma and subtle caramel notes with a slightly earthy and spicy rye character.

Peter Brown Tribute Ale™ will be available from October-December: A malty American Brown Ale brewed with molasses, brown sugar, and hopped with Cascade and Centennial. It’s just the way Pete would have wanted it.

And in 2018, Big Bear Black Stout™ will be available from January-March: A big, black stout you can really sink your teeth into. The bold, roasty, caramel malt flavor is balanced by Centennial and Cascade hops.
