Pelican Brewing Company’s 2022 Coastal Collaboration series continues with the release of Volume II, a Triple Cold IPA created in collaboration with their coastal neighbor, Beachcrest Brewing of Gleneden Beach. Beer lovers can feel good drinking this crisp and refreshing triple-hopped IPA, as 100% of the proceeds from this beer benefit the Siletz Bay Music Festival, a non-profit organization specializing in the dissemination of classy multi-genre music world on the central Oregon coast. and educate all people seeking extraordinary musical experiences.
The second Coastal Collaboration beer was born out of the close friendship of two Oregon Coast locals and brewers who live on the same street. Pelican R&D brewer Scott Mohr and Beachcrest brewer and co-owner Matt White met over three years ago and have been collaborating on beer ever since.
“Scott is a really great friend and an amazing brewer,” White said. “When Scott asked me to do this collaboration, I was floored. It was a new experience to step into his world at the Pelican Brewery and learn more about their standards and process for creating their beers. C t was special to brew together at Pelican.
For this beer, Mohr and White decided to create their version of the famous hybrid beer, the Cold IPA. Using three different hop varieties – Nelson Sauvin, Idaho Gem and Huell Melon – they created a robust yet drinkable white wine-inspired Triple Cold IPA that engulfs your palate with notes of white grapes and honeydew melon and finishes quickly and crispy.
With Pelican’s commitment to creating positive change in their coastal communities, 100% of the proceeds from every beer sold will benefit an equity-focused coastal organization chosen by the collaborating brewery.
“We chose to support the Siletz Bay Music Festival because it provides young people in Lincoln City with opportunities to play, learn and perform music,” said White. “Music is important to children because it exposes them to other cultures and broadens their experiences beyond their local community.”
This bright, straw-colored beer with an assertive bitterness and balanced finish is now available in 500ml bottles at your local bottle shop, on tap at Pelican Breweries and Beachcrest Brewing, and through the Beer Subscription Service 2022 from Pelican called Beer Box.
About Pelican Brewing Company
Pelican Brewing Company was born on the beach in 1996. Here, in front of a dilapidated old building by the water’s edge, stood three enthusiastic young people whose thirst for good beer overshadowed their understanding of what it would take to build a brewery. They did it anyway. Thanks to the vision of founding owners Jeff Schons, Mary Jones and master brewer Darron Welch, Oregon’s only beachfront brewery has become one of the most popular destinations in the state. And now, 26 years later, Pelican Brewing Company is an iconic beach brand and one of Oregon’s most decorated craft breweries. Pelican has received over 450 awards, including the prestigious 2015, 2016, 2017 Australian International Beer Awards Champion Medium International Brewery; Small Brewery Champion of the 2014 World Beer Cup; Major Brewery of the Year at the 2013 Great American Beer Festival. Why? Pelican teas are playful, but not frivolous. Brewed with determination, passion and a deep respect for the craft. Pelican operates brewing and brewing facilities in Pacific City, Cannon Beach, and its state-of-the-art brewery in Tillamook, Oregon, where it brews 40,000 barrels of award-winning beer each year and distributes it in six states. Pelican’s vision, beer and values were born at the beach, where the team wakes up every day in a place that reminds them that amazing is possible. Cheers, fellow fanatics!
