BrewBoyz Reviewz of the Dayz: Bear Republic Brewing Co.

Eric:  Bears are wondrous creatures.  They can climb trees, catch fish, hibernate, and apparently, brew beer.  I’ve liked Bear Republic beers ever since I was a BrewCub.

Their Racer 5 was one of the first IPA’s I fell in love with.  I’ve also had and liked their Red Rocket Ale, Hop Rod Rye, and Black Racer.

Last night, I went to Valhalla in Hell’s Kitchen.  It was a cool bar with a ton of taps.

I got a Cafe Racer 15 cask, and a Tartare.  Beer from a cask is unfiltered, unpasterized, and slightly chilled or room temperature. I decided I don’t like casks… I want my beer cold.  I have my own bottle of Cafe Racer 15, so I’m excited to be able to try it cold.  The Tartare is a Berliner Weiss and was REALLY sour, but I handled it like a mother grizzly.  After the Cafe Racer 15 (and an All Day IPA), the sourness was a quite refreshing.  Quite.

As since bears live in nature, and sunsets live in nature… I saw this one last night…
