NEW YEAR, NEW BEERS!
Coming in hot! Bear Republic is starting out the new year with a bang and bringing back one of their most requested, OG beers of all time, Hop Rod Rye IPA.
“I am VERY excited to see a return of Hop Rod Rye. Before I started brewing for BRBC I was a pub regular, and this was my go-to ale. Bursting with classic Cascade, Columbus, and Centennial aroma and rich maltiness, this original Rye IPA is one of Bear Republic’s greatest creations.” – Brewmaster, Roger Herpst
Want to get your hands on Hop Rod Rye? Visit their Lakeside Pub to get fresh pints, crowlers, and cans.
Hop Rod Rye will be hitting general distribution in early February and will be included in the new Bear Republic Variety Pack!

First started in 2019, Canadian Beer Day is dedicated to celebrating beer and the thousands of Canadians involved in the brewing, selling, delivering, serving â€“ and enjoying â€“ Canada’s favorite beverage loved by millions across the country. The celebration, which occurs every year on the Wednesday before Thanksgiving, recognizes and celebrates beer and breweries in Canada and the workers directly involved in beer’s supply chain â€“ agriculture, manufacturing, transportation, and hospitality.
“Beer brings Canadians together, and it’s been a part of our country’s culture and communities for generations. The last 18 months have been a challenging time for Canadians and businesses, specifically those in hospitality and tourism, making beer’s role in bringing friends and family together more important than ever,” said Dana Miller, Interim Director, Communications and Engagement for Beer Canada.

Bay Area Brewers Guild
Hard to fathom fall is here and the majority of 2021 is behind us. Hopefully a summer of hunkering down means better days ahead, and for us at the Bay Area Brewers Guild, we’d like to help bring back community by spotlighting five Bay Area regions — one for each weekend of October.
We’re kicking things off this weekend in the North Bay, where brewers often work hand-in-hand with local farms and use local ingredients, like fresh picked hops for wet-hopped beers. Along with highlighting those releases, other seasonal favorites (Oktoberfest, anyone?), plus fall brewery events, food & beer pairings, and a new brewery opening are all in the mix this weekend.
Collectively, these Brewer Weekends are meant as reminders there’s nearly always something special, fun or new at your neighborhood brewery every weekend, to enjoy safely on-site or grab and go.
They’re also intended as teasers for 2022, when we hope to finally hold these ‘beer week’ style occasions in their fuller glory, five dotted throughout the calendar, and do proper justice to each region’s unique and vibrant craft beer scene.
Until then, enjoy this impromptu 5-weekend October surprise, and help support and appreciate the neighborhood breweries who so often bring us together.

Free beer, donuts and more: 12 reasons to get your COVID-19 vaccine
In a bid to get as many people vaccinated as possible, companies and local governments are giving away these freebies.
Not only will your COVID-19 vaccine assist in protecting you from the virus, but it can get you so much free stuff. Companies, organizations and even local governments are offering incentives to those getting their coronavirus vaccines — all you need is to show your vaccine card.
These incentives are especially helpful in urging more and more people to get both doses of either the Pfizer or Moderna shots, as recent data has shown that some people are skipping the second shot. Though the CDC has pointed out mild side effects that most people experience after the second vaccine shot, it still largely does not compare to actually having COVID-19. If having to get two shots is part of the concern, the Johnson & Johnson vaccine works in just one dose.
Aside from brands offering incentives, some employers are also offering a perk, whether it’s paid time off or a cash bonus. Ask your own employer if you aren’t sure if there’s a perk — you might be pleasantly surprised. To take advantage of all these perks on offer, you have to do your part and get vaccinated first. Here’s everything your vaccine card will get you.
Valentine’s Gift Box
Discover a perfect pairing between Bear Republic Beer & Volo Chocolate.

BANFF CRAFT BEER WEEK CALLED OFF AND POSTPONED
Due to a growing concern for public health, Alberta Beer Festivals is calling off this yearâ€™s Banff Craft Beer Week and postponing it until further notice. From the outset of planning, which began in August of 2020, the format for the Banff Craft Beer Week was always intended to be people safely supporting local by visiting restaurants in their cohorts. Even with this in mind, due to the recent escalation of Covid cases both in Banff and in the province of Alberta, we are calling off all activations for the 2020 Banff Craft Beer Week.
