To kick off the 2024 year, Public Coast Brewing Co. has released a new core beer to their signature lineup of year-round brews — the ‘67 Blonde Lager, a reimagined classic of the 2018 World Cup Winner, the ‘67 Blonde Ale. This crisp and golden lager joins the Cannon Beach brewery’s signature collection of year-round offerings, which include the Coastal Haze IPA, Oswald IPA, Coconut Brown Ale, NW Honey Red Ale and Public Coast’s non-alcoholic Stephen’s Root Beer.
“The inspiration for this lager comes from the year 1967, which is when the State of Oregon declared that all 363 miles of Oregon’s coastline would be open to the public in perpetuity,” said Will Leroux, Public Coast’s head brewmaster. “As crisp and bright as a sunny Oregon coast day, the ’67 Blonde Lager is a deliciously refreshing beer crafted to be a new favorite among Public Coast’s signature brews. With its subtle sweet malt and hop flavors, this golden lager echoes the spirit of our state’s 1967 landmark declaration.”
The ‘67 Blonde Lager, a 5.0% ABV blend of 2-Row Base Malt, Pilsen Malt, rice flakes, lemondrop Hops and German Lager Yeast, offers a golden appearance and light body that’s delightfully effervescent and wildly approachable.
“While seasonal brews enable us to get creative and run wild, we like to think of the year-round brews as the Team Captains of Public Coast Brewing,” said Leroux. “Standout brews like our Coastal Haze IPA and NW Honey Red Ale anchor our lineup. Just as the ’67 Blonde Lager now does, these flagship offerings showcase our best in terms of taste, quality and consistency.”
The beer is available on tap at the Public Coast brewpub in Cannon Beach as well as 16 oz four packs.
