Rogue Ales and Pendleton Woolen Mills are celebrating Oregon’s Crater Lake National Park in the best way possible: by creating a specialty beer in its honor.
Pendleton Pale Ale, brewed with hops and malts grown on Rogue Farms in Oregon, is a “crisp and refreshing ode to Oregon’s dramatic Crater Lake National Park that comes in a stunning can featuring a design inspired by Pendleton Woolen Mills’ National Parks Collection.” It clocks in at 5.2% ABV and 30 IBU.
The beer is being released in tandem with the 100th birthday of the National Park Service. “It’s a privilege for us to brew this beer inspired by the beauty found in our own backyard,” Rogue president Brett Joyce said in a press release.
“Pendleton honored Glacier National Park in 1916 with the creation of the first national park blanket, Glacier Stripe,” said Mort Bishop, president of Pendleton. “Celebrating America’s treasures became a part of the Pendleton brand from that point. [We] welcome Pendleton Pale Ale to the National Parks Collection of products.”
A portion of the proceeds from the sale of Pendleton Pale Ale will be included in Pendleton’s donation to the National Park Foundation.
Six-packs of the beer will debut in time for National Park Week, April 16-24, at select retail locations, Rogue pubs, and Pendleton stores throughout Oregon.
