Pacific City, Oregon (September 26, 2017)—'Roll out the barrel—we’ll have a barrel of fun!' Pelican Brewing Company rolls out the latest in its Lone Pelican Series: Bronze God, Märzen-style
Lager or German-style Oktoberfest beer. The deliciously malty lager is
available this week in 22 oz. bottles in addition to kegs, 1/6 barrels
and on tap at Pelican brewpubs.
features an abundance of rich, toasty, rounded malt flavors. A vibrant
copper-bronze color attracts the eye, while the floral aroma, deep
smooth character and moderate strength keeps you coming back for another
taste. A combination of Munich malt, GoldenPils malt, Mt. Hood hops,
pure local water and pure lager yeast combine to showcase a classic
Pelican beer with a clean, snappy finish. Bronze God is affectionately
named in honor of Pelican’s head brewer, Jason Schlebach, who created
the autumn treat.
ABV: 5.7% | IBU: 25 | PLATO: 13º
it’s my Mexican-German heritage, but I’m a big fan of malty fest-style
beers, those that give a full flavor but don’t fill you up so easily. I
wanted to play around with that style and incorporate brewmaster Darron
Welch’s unique hopping techniques,” says Schlebach, who has risen to the
role of head brewer at Pelican’s Tillamook brewing facility. “I took a
page from the Kiwanda playbook with a single hop addition in the
whirlpool of Mt. Hood hops for a softer and more floral aroma. A healthy
use of Munich and Vienna malts provide a full maltier character that’s
perfect for our transition to fall.”
According to an article in All About Beer
‘it is the venerable Märzen/Oktoberfest genre that has served autumnal
revelers for centuries. Märzen, the historical designation, was made in
the waning cool of spring; Oktoberfest, the more recent appellation, was
brewed to savor during the changing season. They have come to be the
essentially interchangeable names for the evocative burnished-gold to
coppery, malty lagerbiers that favor brisk weather and festive ambience.
They represent a lineage of adaptation, innovation and cooperation.
Rooted in Germany, Austria, and even England, this stylistic
transformation coincided with the explosion of brewing technology and
regional style development during the mid-19th century.’
So celebrate the change in seasons, grab a 6-pack of Bronze God and let the Beer Barrel Polka play on….
With consistent growth and demand for its products, Pelican recently increased brewing
and bottling capacity at its Tillamook facility to over 38,000 barrels
and opened a new brewpub in Cannon Beach which offers additional
capacity for such experimentation.
all Pelican beers, Bronze God is born at the beach by a team of
award-winning craft beer makers known for brewing styles of beer that
they themselves love to drink. Cheers!
