Pelican to Release Mother of All Storms

Only 240 cases of mother of all storms, formerly known as the perfect storm, will be released

Booking “Mother’s Day” Package only way to guarantee case of Mother of all Storms

The Pelican Pub & Brewery will release its famous Mother of All Storms beer on November 19, 2010, which the Pelican is naming “Mother’s Day.”

Mother of All Storms, formerly known as The Perfect Storm, has caused quite a stir over the last couple years and has sold out quickly.  Mother of All Storms is produced in an extremely limited quantity and only 240 cases will be produced in 2010.  This year, the only guaranteed way to get a bottle (or more) of Mother of All Storms is to attend “Mother’s Day” on Friday, November 19 beginning at 8 a.m. or to book the “Mother’s Day” Package for Thursday, November 18 through the Inn at Cape Kiwanda in Pacific City.

The “Mother’s Day” Package is for one night only—November 18, the night before the Mother of All Storms is officially released.  Those who book it will be guaranteed a case of Mother of All Storms delivered to their room on Mother’s Day (November 19) and avoid the hassle of waiting in line.  The package includes one night in a Kiwanda Guest Room at the Inn at Cape Kiwanda on November 18, a guaranteed case of the Mother of All Storms delivered to the room on November 19 and a limited edition Mother of All Storms t-shirt.  Please call the Inn at 1-888-965-7001 for more information, pricing or to book your room.  Dog-friendly rooms are available.

The Mother of all Storms is based on Stormwatcher’s Winterfest, Pelican’s English-style barleywine.  The Mother of All Storms spent four months aging in 1998 Evan Williams Bourbon barrels. Now at its peak, The Mother of All Storms delivers flavors of deep toasted malt, bourbon and oak. The finish rewards with whispers of vanilla, toffee and caramel. It’s best enjoyed with gusts exceeding 60 mph.
