Press Release:

(Pacific City, OR) – Excitement is building for the highly anticipated Mother of all Storms, a limited production Kentucky bourbon barrel-aged barleywine-style ale. For those interested in purchasing some of this highly coveted ale, the following outlines how it will be released:

“Mother’s Day” at the Pelican Pub & Brewery will be Saturday, November 17th, the 2012 official release date of this very popular seasonal brew. Sales of Mother of all Storms will open when the Pelican’s doors open for business at 8am Saturday morning. Bottles will sell for $20 each; cases of 12 bottles will be $240.

Booking the “Mother’s Day” Package at the Inn at Cape Kiwanda is the only way to guarantee a case of this limited production beer. The “Mother’s Day” Package is for one night only – November 16th, the night before the Mother of all Storms is officially released, and includes a guaranteed case of Mother of all Storms delivered to your room on November 17th – no need to wait in line at the Pelican.

Book Now or contact the Inn at Cape Kiwanda at 888-965-7001 for more information.

Can’t make the trip to Pacific City for “Mother’s Day” November 17th? You might still be in luck.

Due to significant technical difficulties we experienced last year as a result of the overwhelming popularity and demand for Mother of all Storms, rather than releasing Mother of all Storms to the online store, we will be going back to a waiting list via EMAIL ONLY. Send your name, contact information and the number of cases you would like to order (if supply allows) to to be added to the list. You will receive an auto response indicating your email was received. This in no way guarantees you will receive any of this limited production beer.

The only way to be guaranteed any Mother is to be in Pacific City on November 17th.

IF we have remaining inventory of Mother of all Storms after “Mother’s Day” at the Pelican, we will be contacting people on the email waitlist in the order you were added beginning November 26th. At this time, we will confirm your order and collect payment information. Please be patient and do not call the Pelican – it will only delay the process and those answering the phone won’t have any details. Some restrictions apply; see online store policy for complete details regarding the shipment of beer.

IF inventory levels allow, a very limited supply of Mother of all Storms will be released to retails locations, however a date has not been determined.
