Happy Tuesday folks, we’ve got something a bit different today, a somewhat obscure style. Roggenbier is a traditional German style beer brewed with a very heavy portion of Rye in the malt bill and a strong yeast profile to balance the spicy rye.
Pelican is nestled in Pacific City, OR in a rather beautiful location. Founded over ten years ago in 2006 Pelican has been churning out classic Northwest beers ever since. They have recently gone through a subtle rebrand, one that I think is for the better, the brand looks much more cohesive and recognizable now.

It is always important to stay relevant and create unique and identifiable branding. The new look for Pelican seems a bit more timeless and classic than their previous renditions, I think it will have better longevity and not need another refresh for quite some time.
Enough about the outside of the package and the brand, lets see what this obscure Roggenbier is all about.
