Pelican / Ninkasi Danny’s Black Gold


Brewed by Pelican Pub & Brewery
Pacific City, Oregon USA
Style: Imperial Stout | Ratings: 4 | Alcohol: -
Darron Welch, Co-Owner/Brewmaster at Pelican Pub & Brewery, recently joined forces with Jamie Floyd, Owner/Brewmaster of Ninkasi Brewing Company to collaborate on a brew in memorial of Danny Williams, who recently passed away.

Danny’s Black Gold is one of a series of Danny Williams memorial brews that are being brewed across the country, with the Pelican - Ninkasi collaboration representing the Pacific Northwest. Lauren Salazar of New Belgium Brewing in Ft. Collins, Colorado, is the organizer of the memorial brews.

Danny’s Black Gold is a fusion of the signature stouts produced by each brewery, Tsunami Stout from the Pelican and Oatis Stout from Ninkasi. After marrying the two formulations, the beer was boosted to Imperial strength and then fermented with Rochefort Trappist yeast, yielding a unique, inspired beer, an Imperial Oatmeal Belgian-Style Stout!
