Sonoma County, CA (January 19, 2017)—In keeping with the tradition of honest ales and lagers, Bear Republic Brewing Company has released fan favorite IPA, Hop Shovel, in six-packs. Previously only available in draft, Hop Shovel joins the ranks of its brothers Racer 5, Grand-Am, Pace Car Racer, and Double Aught in the year-round lineup.

This pale and hoppy IPA was brewed with a high proportion of wheat and rye for a smooth, well rounded flavor and mouthfeel. Overflowing scoops of hop varieties Mosaic, Meridian, and Denali were added to create huge tropical and citrus notes.

Master Brewer, Peter Kruger, states “Hop Shovel is one of our favorite beers to brew. We are very happy to add this to our year-round lineup and hope everyone enjoys it as much as we do.”

A great beer to enjoy by yourself or with friends, Hop Shovel pairs perfectly with spicy foods and barbecue, such as wings, burgers, and grilled vegetables.

A silver and bronze medal winner at the 2015 and 2016 California State Fair in the American India Pale Ale category, Hop Shovel has become one of Bear Republic’s most desired offerings.

Hop Shovel is available in draft and 6-packs.
