Pacific City, OR (July 11, 2017)—As summer gets into full swing, Pelican Brewing Company introduces a new release sure to transport you to Cloud 9 among those summery billows: welcome Citricumulus Belgian-style citrus pale ale to the Pelican seasonal lineup. Now in stores for summertime refreshment in 12 oz. 6 packs, 22 oz. bottles and on-tap.

Like the lone pelican flying independently from the flock, Citricumulus is one of Pelican’s small batch series which flies in the face of convention. The tasty new brew joins Sun Flare dry-hopped pale ale and Pelicano EXTRA! lager cerveza in the summer lineup.

The latest Lone Pelican takes its inspiration from the high-flying clouds of a summer day. Pelican brewers imagined the perfect beer for a lazy afternoon spent gazing at the sky and started with a crisp, fruity Belgian-style pale ale. To that they added aromatic, citrusy orange peel to create an elevated sensory experience. What do you see when you look up at the clouds? Happiness! And an occasional lone pelican charting his way.

The Lone Pelican Series takes traditional beer styles and ingredients and reimagines them to demonstrate the vast spectrum of flavor experiences possible. The aim is to offer limited-production beers that explore new techniques, ingredients and under-represented styles.

“What’s fun and interesting about the Lone Pelican series is it gives us some creative flexibility and an outlet for exploring intriguing techniques and ingredients that are not well-represented in the market place,” says Darron Welch, founding brewmaster at Pelican Brewing Company. “Each Lone Pelican release explores a whole realm of flavor possibilities and will only be available for two months.”

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 last year opened a new brewpub in Cannon Beach which offers additional capacity for such experimentation.

“We are now able to utilize our smaller brewing systems at the brewpubs to offer some really interesting and sometimes rebellious takes on traditional beer styles—this one-off series really showcases the collective talent and creativity of our brewers,” says Jim Prinzing, CEO, Pelican Brewing Company. “We think Lone Pelican will have beer lovers wondering what’s next as they anticipate the next beer in the series.”
