You Need This Coastal Getaway
The winner of Pelican Brewing Company’s “Born at the Beach” Coastal Getaway will enjoy a beer-inspired multi-course Brewers Dinner and two nights at the Oregon coast’s newest luxury destination.
From its founding in 1996 in Pacific City, Oregon, Pelican Brewing Company has taken inspiration from its seaside hometown and “born at the beach” ethos.
That local, coastal inspiration has fueled the company’s growth and pursuit of excellence. Over the past two decades, Pelican Brewing Company has earned a reputation as a craft beer industry leader, winning more than 450 prestigious beer and culinary awards while expanding beyond the Northwest to serve beer aficionados across the nation.
The company’s Brewers Dinners have also grown in popularity, giving beer lovers the opportunity to learn about the newest Pelican brews, taste the talents of Pelican chefs, and enjoy a variety of delicious and unexpected beer-and-food pairings. This year, one lucky winner and a guest will attend a special Brewers Dinner for free, as part of Pelican’s “Born at the Beach” Coastal Getaway.
Beer Cuisine That Tells a Story
The Brewers Dinner tradition continues in 2018 with the Past/Present/Future series. Each dinner tells a different story.
The “Past” event held earlier this year was inspired by the early settlers of the Oregon coast and by Native cuisine. Think dandelion green salad with pan-fried apples, oyster fritters and salt-pork lardons, paired with Pelican’s Five Fin West Coast Pilsner. Also on the menu: sage-smoked rabbit hand-pies with root vegetables and roasted apples, accompanied by Beak Bender Hoppinated IPA.
The “Present” theme, on April 21, will highlight Oregon’s relationship with food and locally-sourced products.
The “Future” dinner arrives October 20. The winner of Pelican’s “Born at the Beach” Coastal Getaway will receive two tickets to this four-hour multi-course dining experience. The event will highlight up-and-coming food trends and explore how culinary science and technology will shape what reaches our plates. Each of the six sumptuous food courses will be paired with a distinctive Pelican beer.
Oregon’s Newest Coastal Getaway
As with this year’s Brewers Dinner series, Pelican’s founders have always looked to the future—and beyond beer. Over the years they’ve added several Pacific City lodging properties to their mix, out of a desire to share their coastal community and values with a wider audience. The newest of these properties is Headlands Coastal Lodge & Spa, right next to Pelican’s flagship brewpub on the beach at Pacific City.
Headlands represents hospitality, Oregon-style—luxury without pretense, service without flash.
Nestled alongside Cape Kiwanda State Natural Area, the new resort is designed for all types of adventurers.
At Headlands, you can head out to experience 50 miles of surf, sand, rivers and trails. Or stay in, to recharge with a good book by a grand fireplace. Take an inner journey via a spa treatment or wellness class at Tidepools. Or simply step across the sand from Headlands to Pelican Brewing Company, to drink in a seasonal beer along with the stunning ocean view.
