The summer of 2013 introduced the city of Cleveland to a unique and rare visitor. A Brown Pelican, usually found in Florida and other Gulf states, wandered north to vacation on Ohio’s Lake Erie coast. Swapping saltwater for fresh, feeding on shad instead of mullet, this welcome stranger made Lake Erie his home for several months and became an unlikely local celebrity. This dark lager honors our courageous friend who traveled off the beaten path to find his home.
Dark and toasty with rich, robust malt flavors, Wandering Pelican Black Lager is brewed with proprietary lager yeast and balanced with a blend of crisp, floral American hops.
