Pelican Debuts Employee-Inspired Chongie Saaz Bohemian Pilsner at OBF

imageFrom Pelican:

Earlier this year Pelican brewmaster Darron Welch issued a Pelican-wide call to employees wishing to imagine a unique recipe they could share at OBF. Named after Pelican brewery rep, Maia Chong, who conceived the refreshing summer brew, Chongie Saaz is a Bohemian pilsner that showcases spicy Czech hops paired with Weyermann Barke Pilsner and Vienna malt to create an incredibly clean flavored lager that showcases the beautiful Pilsner malt balanced with snappy bitterness and uncompromising drinkability.

Specifications                     Ingredients

OG—11.8◦                                Weyerman Barke

FG—1.4◦                                  Pilsner Malt

ABV: 5.5%                              Vienna Malt

IBU: 45                                   Saaz Hops

“Those four ingredients (soft water, Saaz hops, workhorse lager strain, & plenty of pale malts) work in concert to create a thrilling new beer with a sparkling clarity, a color reminiscent of spun gold, an aromatic bouquet, & an incomparably light body,” says Joshua M. Bernstein in his The Complete Beer Course: Boot Camp for Beer Geeks

The unique draft-only brew will be available in the Pelican booth at OBF this week.
