Being a Concierge, to me, is by far the most fascinating work. It’s all about top notch service for our guests and owners, as well as knowing every tiny detail about everything that is going on within my community and out. If there is something we are unsure of, we make it a point to find out everything we can about it. Whether it be something as simple as “what type of whales are those swimming out there?” to “where is the best place to eat in Depoe Bay?” We’ll give you the facts.
I often find myself asking people questions about their area when my husband and I are out and about. How much do they know about what’s going on around the area? As a Concierge, I am constantly asked “what are some things we don’t want to miss while vising the area?” and “if you were me, what would you do on a day like today?” If it were me, on a rainy day in October, I would be wine tasting. Yum. It’s one of my newly favorite things to do in mid-Fall. I never preferred wine until some friends invited me to go. Making up my mind to go all in on this tasting business, I dove straight in and found that I really do like wine! I was a bit skeptical at first, due to the fact that past wine experiences weren’t that great. Everything that I had tasted in the past had been horrible. First stop was Archery Summit and WOW, I was amazed by the flavors and aromas and fell, quickly and undoubtedly head over heels in love with wine. That’s all it took, one taste from a superb vineyard and excellent Pinot Noir. Vowing to try all of the vineyards in the Willamette valley, I have tried 20 so far and not all on one day! A few of my favorite vineyards include Archery Summit, Sokol Blosser and Stoller, all known for their aromatic, dark, fruity flavors of black cherries, spice and oak. If you get a chance to go to any of these vineyards or some others, I highly recommend it.
If you’re in the area and stumped for ideas on what you should do, stop and say “hi” to myself, or my fellow Concierge team, Jerri, Lainie or Mitch! We would love to help.

We hope you'll be able to join in the fun activities we have planned below.
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.
Extreme Beer Dinner Menu
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.
We hope to see you for Mother's Day 2014!!!
Following tremendous success at the 2014 World Beer Cup, Pelican Brewing Co. took home a handful of awards at this year's North American Beer Awards hosted by the North American Brewers Association in Idaho Falls, Idaho. With over 1,400 different beverages entered into this year's competition, Pelican Brewing Company won awards in four different categories.
Among this year's wins, The Governor, a bold and refreshing lager brewed to honor former Oregon Governor Tom McCall, won the Bronze Medal in the Helles Bock/Maibock category. Governor McCall was integral in the 1960's passing of the Oregon Beach Bill, which protected Oregon's beaches and dedicated them to public access forever. This seasonal release from Pelican Brewing Co. uses locally-grown Oregon hops to create a clean brew that is likewise accessible to everyone.
Pelican also won the Bronze Medal in the English-Style India Pale Ale beer style category for its Silverspot IPA, a mainstay in the Pelican lineup, with its brilliant gold color & assertively complex hop aroma. 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 area. 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.
Claiming a Silver Medal in the Scotch Ale (Wee Heavy) category was MacPelican's Wee Heavy Ale. Also the winner of the Gold Medal in this category in 2012, Pelican's take on the Wee Heavy is simply MacPelican's Ale brewed with half the water and twice the boiling time to create a beer with a massive malty flavor and a deep red color.
Rounding out the wins for Pelican Brewing Co. was the Stormwatcher's Winterfest which won a Silver Medal in English-Style Barley Wine. Sometimes June can still feel like winter on the Oregon Coast and this barley wine offers a full-bodied malty flavor that leads to a smooth, soft & warming finish. This big 12/7% ale has claimed a medal in this category at the NABA the past three years.
