PACIFIC CITY, Ore. — Another Father of All Tsunamis predicted as Pelican Brewing Company continues its barrel-aged craft beer series with the newest production of its Imperial Stout aged in rye whiskey barrels. One-upping Pelican’s popular core brew Tsunami Stout was no easy task the first time but Pelican brewers have done it again crafting a beer with even more stout character in this barrel-aged Imperial version.
The limited-production Father of All Tsunamis, which will be available this month in 22 oz. bottles and on draft at select locations, is available now for pre-order online. Father will be available for pick-up at Pelican brewpubs in Pacific City, Cannon Beach and Tillamook on Saturday, January 20, 2018.

Full of rich roasted flavors reminiscent of dark chocolate and espresso, ‘Father’ takes things one step further with aging in Rye whiskey barrels. With layers of spiciness, vanilla and caramel coming from these barrels, the Imperial Stout emerges with a richness and balance beyond any stout ever created at Pelican before now.
Ingredients include pale malt, malted white wheat, Midnight Wheat malt, Black Prinz malt, pure cane sugar, Magnum hops, Willamette hops, pure local water, and pure ale yeast:
“Father was initially born when we imagined how fantastic it would be to age an Imperial version of Tsunami Export Stout in whiskey barrels to create an incredible Imperial Stout,” said Darron Welch, founding brewmaster, Pelican Brewing Company. “Father offers a stout black color, dark chocolate, coffee-like roastiness combined with the inherent spiciness of the rye to make a pretty darn special beer.”
With a nod to the popularity of Pelican’s original barrel-aged masterpiece Mother of All Storms, English-style Barleywine aged in Bourbon Barrels, the brewery continues its vision for creating recipes that combine beer, spirits and barrel flavors. Fellow fanatics of Pelican’s barrel-aged series have another year of tasty treats ahead with quarterly releases of exquisite beers like Queen of Hearts, Saison Ale aged in Old Tom Gin Barrels, Captain of the Coast, Wee Heavy Ale aged in Dry Fly Wheat Whiskey Barrels, and of course the annual return of ‘Mother.’
