The Pelican Pub and Brewery, located 22 miles south of Tillamook on the majestic Oregon Coast, has become a Northwest landmark for craft beer and fine food enthusiasts. The oceanfront facility includes an outdoor patio and banquet room with unobstructed views of Cape Kiwanda and Haystack Rock.

Other award-winning brews include India Pelican Ale, MacPelican’s Scottish-Style Ale, Tsunami Stout and Doryman’s Dark. The three-time Great American Beer Festival “Brewpub of the Year” winner is open seven days a week, serving breakfast, lunch and dinner. For more information, call 503-965-7007 .
On May 21st The Pelican is teaming up with Wildwood Restaurant in Portland for an unforgettable Brewers Dinner, which will feature five Wildwood courses paired with five of Pelican’s most dynamic ales. Some of the courses include Tandoor Roasted Cascade Natural New York Strip Steak paired with 2009 Stormwatcher’s Winterfest and Chocolate Stout Cake paired with Tsunami Stout beer.
1) Crispy House Cured Halibut Brandade
2010 Saison du Pelican
About 2010 Saison du Pelican: The “Saison” ales of Belgium inspire our special vintage ale, Saison du Pelican. “Saison” is the French word for season, because these ales were traditionally brewed in the autumn or winter for consumption during the late summer harvest. With a spicy, herbal aroma and a snappy, refreshing finish, Saison du Pelican combines traditional flavors with excellent drinkability.
2) Pan Seared Sweet Briar Farms Pork Scaloppine
2008 Le Pelican Brun
Full of intriguing malt flavors, Le Pelican Brun was conceived by the fertile imaginations of the team of Pelican Brewers and inspired by the many brewing traditions of Belgium. With a deep reddish-brown color that suggests an Abbey -Style Dubbel, but a rich yeast-driven aroma reminiscent of a Saison, Le Pelican Brun serves up coffee-like, cocoa and caramel malt flavors with hints of earthiness and a captivating spiciness. Medium-bodied and highly drinkable, Le Pelican Brun is also rich, complex and satisfying.
3) Pan Roasted Muscovy Duck Confit
2009 Grand Cru de Pelican
Grand Cru de Pelican is the result of inspiration, creativity, and imagination. With a nod to the great brewing traditions of Belgium, we have been inspired to create this dark, sensous brew. Grand Cru de Pelican entices with a rich, complex aroma, and satisfies with deep malty and caramel flavors. Spicy, aromatic flavors provide a harmonious counterpoint to the malty foundation of this robust beer. A snappy finish and medium-light body enhance the smooth drinkability of this beer.
4) Tandoor Roasted Cascade Natural New York Strip
2009 Stormwatcher’s Winterfest
Stormwatcher’s Winterfest is the perfect brew to savor on a stormy Oregon Coast day. Its deep amber-red color, massive toasted malt, toffee and caramel aroma, and full-bodied malty flavor lead to a smooth, soft and warming finish. The floral aroma and flavor highlights come from Mt. Hood hops , while a toasted malt sweetness balances a mild, subtle bitterness in the finish. Its big, rich flavor makes it the ideal complement to nasty weather.
5) Chocolate Stout Cake
About Tsunami Stout: It’ll bowl you over with its midnight black color and rich dark-roasted aroma. Specially blended hops combine with flaked unmalted barley to give this brew a full body and a dense creamy head. All elements combine in a solid, lingering finish.
