Bear Republic Brewing Co. – Racer 5 India Pale Ale


Our featured craft beer for June 2019 is an award winner many, many, many times over. Hailing from Colverdale, CA, Bear Republic Brewing Co. is a brewery in a sea of California wineries. Bear Republic emphasizes sustainability, donating their spent grains to cattle ranchers, re-using much of their water for bio-electricity, and solar panels for additional energy.

Racer 5 India Pale Ale, the brewery’s flagship beer, is a brewed with malted barley and crystal malt, hopped with Cascade, Columbus, Chinook and Centennial hops. Bear Republic displays nine awards for Racer 5 on their website. The critics at Beer Advocate seem to agree, with Racer 5 maintaining over a 4/5 rating of close to 7,900 people.

Pago De La Jaraba 2014


This month’s featured wine comes from Pago De La Jaraba, an enclosed estate in Spain’s Villarrobledo region. Pago De La Jaraba produces single vineyard estate wines, extra virgin olive oil, artisan Manchego cheese, and more. Pago De La Jaraba produces their products in house, distributing everything proudly through their own brands. Our featured wine, Pago De La Jaraba 2014, is a Tempranillo dominant blend, consisting of 70% Tempranillo, 20% Cabernet Sauvignon and 10% Merlot.

Wine Enthusiast awarded Pago De La Jaraba 2014 a score of 87 points, naming it a “Best Buy,” with tasting notes that included:

“Choppy berry aromas are earthy and contain notes of olive and dried leaves…Cherry, plum and dry spice flavors are steady on a finish with some flesh to it.”

If you’re a fan of Spanish Tempranillo, this an excellent blend. If you’re unfamiliar with the style, this is a worthy place to start.


Stone Brewing – Revengeful Spirit, Tangerine Express, Moxee Gold IPAs


Just in time for summer, our featured beer this month is a colorful variety of exciting IPAs from Stone Brewing, available in 6 packs of cans.

Revengeful Spirit Imperial IPA – Stone brews this “tropical IPA” with pineapple and mandarin orange. You may remember “Revengeful Spirit” from a few years back – this is the all new Imperial version. 8.1% ABV

Tangerine Express IPA – Brewed with tangerine puree and whole pineapple, Stone warns this is still a serious IPA, with “crisp bitterness” and “citrus flavor”. 6.7% ABV

Moxee Gold IPA – Part of Stone’s “Farm-to-Can” series, Moxee is brewed entirely with hops from CLS Farms in Moxee, Washington. Moxee is brewed with El Dorado hops, unique to CLS Farms, and Centennial. 7% ABV
