Bear Republic's brews are hand-crafted using traditional brewing methods. We hand select only the choicest ingredients for each batch. The specialty grains and hops used by Bear Republic have been chosen for their unique characteristics. The recipes and their final formulations were developed over a period of several years. Those wonderful homebrewing sessions and the lessons learned from trial and error have established the solid foundations for each recipe's commercial equivalents. It's our goal to continually develop new recipes using our time tested home brewing methods. "I feel home brewing is the laboratory where true advancement of beer styles is coming from. "Richard G. Norgrove, Master Brewer.
