Pacific City, OR — The Pelican Pub & Brewery’s Kiwanda Cream Ale was named to DRAFT Magazine’s Top Beers in the World of 2009 list for the second year in a row.  Kiwanda Cream Ale is one of only three beers from 2008 to make it on the 2009 list and the only Northwest brew to return for a second year in 2009.

In the tasting notes, DRAFT says Kiwanda, “…continues to be the one beer every beer drinker should stock in their fridge.”  DRAFT also praises the light-bodied flavor and adds “…there is not a more refreshing beer in America today.”

Other Northwest breweries that made the list this year include Deschutes Brewery for “Mirror Mirror,” Cascade Brewing Co. for “Vlad the Imp Aler” and Hair of the Dog Brewing for “Adam.”
