Bear Republic Peter Brown Tribute – Jack Tipple’s Year of Beer Challenge Week 2.48
Peter Brown Tribute Ale is malty American Brown Ale, brewed with molasses, brown sugar, and hopped with Cascade and Centennial. It’s just the way Pete would have wanted it.
About Peter Brown Bear Republic Sales Manager:
“Peter Brown, our “Million Dollar Salesman”, was Bear Republic’s Sales Manager for over three years and is missed daily at the Bear since his death in November 2002. Before joining the Bear, he represented our products as one of the top salesmen for Morris Distributing in Petaluma, Ca.
“Throughout his career as part of our team, he was a great asset in increasing our distribution and sales throughout Northern California.
“During his life, Pete played softball. Pete is ranked as one of the top softball players of all time and took his team to a record fifth National Master’s Softball Championship in September 2002, just two months before his passing. From playing on kid’s softball teams to coaching high school, to being part of several All-American teams, and even playing in international softball tournaments, he will always be remembered as an important part of the team.
“In honor of the life of a good friend and an internationally recognized softball pitching ace, Bear Republic released Peter Brown Tribute Ale as a new bottled product in the summer of 2003. Now, it joins the leagues of Bear Republic’s six-packs.
“Our rendition of a Strong American Brown Ale, Peter Brown is balanced with a dark grain blend that is pleasing to the eye and smooth on the palate. Truly Peter Brown’s, a man who always lived life to the fullest, we can still see Pete sitting at the bar enjoying a pint. Cheers to you Pete.”
We at Tipple’s love to try new beers all the time and we’re sure that you do too. In honor of that we have designed a program to help you try new beer and perhaps revisit some old beers you haven’t had in quite a while. For Jack Tipple’s Year of Beer Challenge we will feature a different beer every week. If you purchase that beer on the given week we will punch your card. Once you have completed 52 weeks of featured beers we will give you your choice of a Tipple’s Koozie or Tipple’s Pint glass and you will have your name added to our plaque on the wall and be immortalized in the annals of Tipple’s History.
