Pelican Brewing Co. Wins Awards at World Beer Cup®Posted: April 16, 2014
Pacific City, Oregon • April 15, 2014 - Pelican Brewing Co. claimed several awards at the 2014 World Beer Cup® in Denver, Colorado, a global beer competition that evaluates beers from around the world and recognizes the most outstanding brewers and their beers.
Gold, silver and bronze awards in the competitions's 94 beer style categories were presented April 11, 2014 during the World Beer Cup® award ceremony at the Hyatt Regency in Denver, Colorado. Additionally, five "Champion" awards were presented to the top winners in these five categories: Small Brewpub, Large Brewpub, Small Brewery, Midsize Brewery and Large Brewery.
Pelican Brewing Co. won a gold award in the Golden Ale beer style category for its Kiwanda Cream Ale. Inspired by one of America's traditional 19th century beer styles, Kiwanda Cream is pale gold with a fruity, floral hop aroma. A sweet malty flavor and a smooth snappy finish round out this tasty, refreshing brew!
Pelican also won a silver award in the English India Pale Ale beer style category for its Silverspot IPA, a mainstay in the Pelican lineup with its brilliant gold color and assertively complex hop aroma. A blend of Sterling, Fuggle and Meridian hops, focusing on herbal, floral, spicy and tangerine-like characters creates this highly drinkable 6% ABV English-Style IPA. Silverspot IPA celebrates the Oregon Silverspot butterfly, which once flourished in coastal grasslands from Washington to California. Due to habitat loss, this threatened butterfly is now found only in a handful of protected areas. A collaborative habitat restoration and reintroduction program is helping to increase this butterfly population. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this beer will help fund conservation efforts for the Oregon Silverspot Butterfly.
Additionally, Pelican was named "Champion Small Brewery and Brewmaster" in the competition, taking the top award from a field of 755 Small Breweries competing in that category. Given that Pelican recently moved the bulk of their brewing to a new facility in 2013 and the winning beers were brewed and bottled in the new brewery, this award is testament to the Pelican Team's commitment to utter consistency in style, flavor, and quality.
"This is especially amazing, following on the heels of winning Large Brewpub & Brewer of the Year at the Great American Beer Festival® in 2013, AND Large Brewpub & Brewer of the Year at the 2012 World Beer Cup®," said Darron Welch, Brewmaster at Pelican. "Winning this kind of recognition for our brewery team three years in a row is absolutely phenomenal."
World Beer Cup® winners were selected by an international panel of 219 beer judges from 31 countries. Regarded as the "Olympics of Beer Competition," the World Beer Cup® saw an impressive field of 4,754 entries from 1,403 breweries in 58 countries.
Presented by the Brewers Association, the World Beer Cup® has been held every other year since 1996, to celebrate the art and science of brewing by recognizing outstanding achievement.

Newest batch of Seahops is brewing now!Posted: January 20, 2014
Pelican brewer (and rabid Hawk fan) Whitney Burnside is ecstatic to be brewing yet another batch of Seahops to honor the Seahawk’s NFC Championship win!!
Demand for this most excellent Pale Ale was off the charts this past weekend for Hawk fans in Seattle, Portland & Pacific City, so the brewery team at the Pelican is making a 30-barrel batch today to make sure it’s available for Superbowl weekend. We will be doing another drawing for a 2-night getaway to Pacific City on Superbowl Sunday, so be sure and get yourself to an establishment serving Seahops during the Superbowl to enter!

First Female Head Brewer at Pelican Brewing Company creates "12th Woman" beerPosted: January 9, 2014
First Female Head Brewer at Pelican Brewing Co. creates “12th Woman” beer for Hawk and Hop lovers alike; Seahops pale ale.
Whitney Burnside is not only the first female head brewer of Pelican Brewing Company’s Pacific City location, she is a Seattle native and a die-hard Hawks fan. Her latest “Lone Pelican” beer was brewed and named in support of the Seahawks. With an original gravity of 12 degrees PLATO (to honor the 12th Woman), Seahops is a delicious Pale Ale available in limited locations around Seattle & Portland on draft only. Whitney (one of the hottest young female brewers in the nation) will be in Seattle, visiting FX McCrory’s and Collins Pub during the game to celebrate Hawks and Hops. This beer has been so popular, that Whitney has brewed another batch to ensure availability on game day the 19th (no lack of faith here!).
Pelican Brewing Co. is among the most honored breweries in the Northwest, winning over 260 medals and “Brewpub of the Year” four times at national and international competitions. To celebrate the Hawks progress in the Playoffs, Pelican Brewing Co. will be giving away a weekend in Pacific City (the brewery’s hometown on the Oregon Coast), including a 2 night stay, tour of the brewery & tastings with Whitney to someone who fills out an entry form on gameday in selected locations where Seahops is being poured in Seattle, Washougal, Portland, and Newport. In Seattle, find Seahops (while it lasts) at FX McCrory’s, Collins Pub, The SixGill, and Brouwer’s Café. In Portland at Uptown Market, Bottles, and Alberta Street Public House, in Washougal at A Beer at a Time and in Newport at the Deep End Café.
Beer Description: Resembling Russell Wilson leading the Seahawks to victory, Calypso hops are the unique star QB of this beer featuring delicious, fruity notes with hints of apple and pear. Centennial hops take the handoff to give a spicy citrus aroma with a hint of floral. The defensive line of pale and crystal malts lends itself to a smooth clean character, a subtle sweetness, and lightly toasted undertones that support the hop profile all the way to the end zone.
Seahops is a well-balanced beer, for a well-balanced team. This will have Richard Sherman asking “You Thirsty, Bro?”
Malts: 2 Row, Maris Otter, Crystal, Munich
Hops: Magnum, Calypso, Centennial
Original Gravity: 12 degrees PLATO
Announcing our Pelican Barrel ProjectPosted: December 4, 2013
Announcing our Pelican Barrel Project
Since the opening of our new Tillamook Brewery and Tap Room (and the moving of some large tanks), we've rediscovered some brewery floor space in our Pacific City brewpub. As we pondered what we could do with this space, the answer came fairly easy to us: BREW MORE BEER. But not just any kind of beers, we will make delicious Barrel-Aged Beers!
Therefore, we are excited to announce our Pelican Barrel Project, where we will create World-Class Beers aged in various types of interesting barrels throughout 2014.
The initial release will launch in early January of 2014: "Tsunami on Wheat Whiskey". We have brewed a batch of Tsunami Stout to age in Dry Fly Distilling's Washington Wheat Whiskey barrels. The beer will spend an estimated 2.5 months inside the barrels to impart the new oak flavors that we are looking for. Tsunami on Wheat Whiskey will be an extremely limited draft-only item available at our oceanfront Brewpub in Pacific City, our Tap Room in Tillamook, and a select few bars in Oregon and Washington.
