What's more important - the beer or the food? We say both. In fact, The Pelican Pub & Brewery is a world leader in the pairing of food and beer. We've been doing it for 16 years. Our executive chef and brewmaster make it their daily mission to understand how food and beer flavors complement one another.

Not only how the beer pairs with the food, but how to incorporate beer into preparing menu items in order to achieve the most flavor. It could be the Kiwanda Cream Ale batter in our famous Tower of Rings, the Beer Blanc sauce that tops our blackened cod or the brownie sundae made with Tsunami Stout. Whatever you order, there has been thought put into how our beer can be integrated into the dish to create a unique culinary experience.

Our beers are awarded medals, plaques and honors from around the globe. You'll find our core beers here along with a continual rotation of seasonal and small batch brews by our award winning brewing team.

There are many storms out there, all of them perfect in their own way. But there is only one Mother of all Storms and it only happens on the Oregon Coast.

Imperial Pelican is one of our first core beer styles (originally named “India Pelican Ale”) and we think of it as part of our own heritage in a bottle.

Our American Brown Ale has a dark brown color, with a balanced aroma of roasted malts and Northwest-grown hops. The sweetness of the ale and crystal malts blend beautifully with the assertive flavors of Cascade and Mt. Hood hops. A brew to be savored. This beer originated as a prize-winning homebrew many years ago. When Darron, the Head Brewer, began designing the beers for the Pelican Pub and Brewery, he adapted his old 5 gallon homebrew recipe to his new 15 bbl (465 gallon) brewery. It was well worth the effort, for not only has the Doryman's Dark Ale been a perennial favorite here at the Pelican Pub, but it has garnered prestigious professional awards.

The Pacific Northwest is home to the finest berry growers in the world. When Pelican Brewing set out to create a new take on fruit beers, there was only one compass heading: massive quantities of flavorful fruit with perfectly matched beer. Volume I of Berried at Sea creates new complexities of flavor while charting a course to the darker side of fruit beer; it begins with our legendary Tsunami Stout and evolves with the addition of Northwest-grown currants and blackberries. WIth an aroma reminiscent of dark chocolate and ripe berries, the first sip sails across the palate to finish with tart fruit and a pleasing cocoa-like dryness. Enjoy before it’s lost at sea.

One-upping the mighty Tsunami Stout is no easy task. To create a beer with even more stout character, our brewers reimagined the fabled Tsunami Stout and created a new Imperial version. Full of rich roasty flavors reminiscent of dark chocolate and espresso, Father of All Tsunamis takes things one step further by aging in Rye whiskey barrels. With layers of spiciness, vanilla and caramel coming from these barrels, Father of All Tsunamis emerges with a richness and balance beyond any stout ever created at Pelican before now.

Our latest seasonal takes inspiration from the high-flying clouds of a summer day. Our brewers imagined the perfect beer for a lazy afternoon spent gazing at the sky and started with a crisp, fruity Belgian-style pale ale. To that they added aromatic, citrusy orange peel to create an elevated sensory experience. What do you see when you look up at the clouds? We see happiness…and an occasional pelican charting his way.
