Oregon's Rogue Ales has brewed up a tasty way to celebrate the 100th birthday of the National Parks with its Pendleton Pale Ale. Made in collaboration with Pendleton Woolen Mills, the can celebrates Oregon's Crater Lake National Park and features Pendleton's park-inspired Glacier stripe.

"Pendleton has done such a wonderful job paying homage to the great outdoors with their National Parks program, it’s a privilege for us to brew this beer inspired by the beauty found in our own backyard," says Rogue president Brett Joyce.

The beer itself is brewed with Rogue's own Oregon-grown barley and hops. Pendleton Pale Ale is a smooth, balanced trail-friendly beer, without the hops dominating like in many pale ales. It'll hit shelves on April 16 to help kick off National Park Week.
