Pelican Brewing releases Skyryze Pale Ale in Cans

The latest can release from Pelican Brewing Company’s sounds like a bit of a throwback to times when Pale Ales were more malty and hop choices were more earthy. Skyryze Pale Ale is based on innovation brewer Coren Tradd’s original small-batch and draft-only Coast Range Rye that became an immediate hit and won a Gold Medal at the International Beer Awards last spring 2019.

Now, standing on the shoulders of its award-winning predecessor, Skyryze Pale Ale is born for fellow fanatics to enjoy. Skyryze takes its place in Pelican’s rotating canned beer lineup and is available now in craft beer aisles and on-draft at Pelican and other participating watering holes.

“I wanted to design a tasty rye beer that wasn’t overpowering—something mellow and malty that would appeal to a lot of people who want a rye character in a really drinkable package,” says Tradd, head brewer at Pelican’s Cannon Beach brewpub. “Skyryze is a great crisp fall beer that offers an incredibly pleasant and memorable experience.”

Beach fans give a lot of love to sunsets on the Oregon Coast, but a good coastal sunrise is really something special—it takes dedication to witness one, and it’s something you won’t soon forget. Skyryze Pale Ale is similar with its bold malt character coming from Oregon-malted rye and its earthy and floral hop aroma—an unforgettable experience in a can.

Skyryze delights with notes of pumpernickel and a slight rustic spice, as well as a moderate hoppy bitterness. Finishing clean and crisp on the palate, this beer is pleasurably drinkable. Be bold. Watch a sunrise. Drink a Skyryze.

ABV: 6.1%  |  IBU: 40  |  PLATO: 14º

Like all Pelican beers, Skyrze was 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.

Founding brewmaster of Pelican Darron Welch continues to be one of the most decorated brewers in the Pacific Northwest, earning well over 450 medals including several Gold last year alone at the World Beer Cup, Australian International Beer Awards and North American Beer Awards.
