Pacific City, OR (December 14, 2016)—Pelican Brewing Company cheers up January’s impending doldrums with the release of its most award-winning brew in 12 oz. bottles and 6-packs. Arguably the most decorated beer in the world Tsunami Stout is bound for smaller format bottles and will hit the craft beer aisle in January—just in time to cure those post holiday blues.
Like the force of nature it is named for, Tsunami bowls the beer drinker over with its jet black color and dark seductive aroma. Roasted malts and unmalted barley give this full-bodied brew its dense creamy head and distinct dark chocolate and cappuccino flavors that swell to a clean, rounded malty finish. Pelican encourages you to grab a Tsunami and head for higher ground.
Pelican’s memorable combination of pale ale malt, flaked barley, chocolate malt, Black Patent malt, roasted barley, Magnum hops, Willamette hops, pure local water, pure ale yeast—along with the brewery’s consistent attention to drinkability and balance—have won this specialty brew more than 50 awards including 16 Gold Medals:
ABV: 7% | IBU: 45 | PLATO: 17º
“Tsunami’s deep complex roast profile really emphasizes the coffee-like dark chocolate character that’s been pleasing Pelican beer drinkers for more than 20 years; there’s a rich roasted viscosity that stout drinkers love,” says founding Pelican’s brewmaster Darron Welch. “There aren’t many craft stouts available in 12oz bottles so we’re eager to bring this seasonal brew to a format that will introduce this style to even more people.”
