Behind the scenesEdit
Bad Motivator IPA is an India pale ale available to customers at the Oga's Cantina bar in Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge upon the opening of the theme park in 2019. It was revealed as part of a large promotional event held on February 26, 2019.
Bad Motivator IPA is brewed by Sierra Nevada Brewing Company, an independent brewery based in Chico, California. It has an ABV of 6.0%, with a hop profile favoring Galaxy and Comet hops, creating a tropical fruit tone.
It is named for an incident depicted in Star Wars wherein R5-D4 staged a motivator malfunction, leading Owen Lars to purchase R2-D2 in his stead, thus allowing the latter droid to fulfill a mission to deliver a message to Obi-Wan Kenobi.
