Pacific City, Oregon (April 11, 2017)—Pelican Brewing Company continues its barrel-aged craft beer series with the release of Father of All Tsunamis, a delicious Imperial Stout Ale aged in rye whiskey barrels. One-upping Pelican’s popular core brew Tsunami Stout is no easy task but Pelican brewers may have come close: they crafted a beer with even more stout character in the new Imperial version. Introducing Father of All Tsunamis.


ull 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:

ABV:   11.2%             IBU: 55           PLATO: 24º

With a nod to the popularity of Mother of All Storms and a vision for creating new recipes that combine beer, spirit and barrel flavors, Pelican continues its quarterly barrel-aged series—next up, Father.

“Ever since we started doing barrel-aged beers we’ve had this idea that if we put Tsunami in whiskey barrels it would make for a completely fantastic beer—this is the first Imperial Stout Pelican has ever made and we cannot wait to share it,” says Darron Welch, founding brewmaster, Pelican Brewing Company. “Father’s recipe was created specifically for our new barrel-aged series—a stout black color, dark chocolate, coffee-like roastiness combine with the inherent spiciness of the rye to make a pretty darn special beer.”
