Pacific City, OR – The forecast is calling for Mother of All Storms 2014, our limited production Kentucky bourbon barrel-aged barleywine, to arrive November 15th and we’re super excited! We will be offering a one and two night lodging package at The Inn at Cape Kiwanda, Cottages at Cape Kiwanda, and Shorepine Vacation Rentals.
The weekend will kickoff Friday, November 14th at 6pm with a causal and intimate 4-course Extreme Beer Brewers Dinner featuring a decadent menu and the high gravity beers to pair with it. A member of our Chef team and a Brewer will be on-hand to discuss beer, food, and beer cuisine. Extreme Beer Brewers Dinner Tickets are $75 and can be purchased by calling our General Manager, Ken, at 503-965-3674, or as part of our 2-night lodging package. Each dinner ticket gives you the opportunity to purchase one case of Mother of All Storms at the dinner Friday night.

NEW this year: We will open the Barrel Room at 6am on Saturday, November 15th, for our eager fans to wait out of the elements until we officially open at 8am. (There will be coffee for your enjoyment while you hang out and anticipate your first sip of Mother.) When the clock strikes 8am, sales will open at the Pelican Pub & Brewery in Pacific City for Mother’s Day! We will have bottles available for $20 and full cases available for $240. We will also give out numbered tickets for the first chance to purchase vintage Mother of All Storms…we will have a limited supply of 2011, 2012, and 2013 available by the bottle. The Barrel Room will be open throughout the day with live music, food and beverage service, and vertical flights of vintage Mother of All Storms and Stormwatcher’s Winterfest draft.
Also Saturday, November 15th before 8am, if you have booked a 1-night Mother’s Day Lodging Package, we will deliver a case of Mother of All Storms direct to your door.
On Sunday, November 16 from 8am until 11am, we will host a Mother’s Day Brunch in the banquet room. Each dish will have suggested beer pairings with some of our strong ales. Our Mother’s Day Brunch will be $20 per person (no advance purchase necessary), and is also included as part of our 2-night lodging package.
And finally, just like in years past, IF any cases are still available – there will be a first come, first serve e-mail opportunity to purchase a case of Mother of All Storms sometime in December. This is highly unlikely, but just in case, if you can’t participate in any of the events above, send an email to Mother@PelicanBrewery.com to be added to the email waiting list. We will release information at a later date should this opportunity become available.
