Pelican Brewery-Pacific City, OR

If you find yourself on a vacation down to Pacific City, Oregon chances are you will find yourself stopping at the Pelican Brewery. This is a wonderful place to stop for a pint and some quality beach time with your half pint.

This brewery is located right on the beach which means it has great views and huge crowds. We visited this summer with our son during a three day stay at Pacific Beach.  At the time that we went Flynn was not yet ready to order off the kids menu, but I did notice that they had one!

The best part is after you eat you and your kiddos (and pooches if you have them) can go play in the ocean and on the sand.

They have pretty decent food and really good beers. I ordered a sampler and my favorite was the Tsunami Stout.  Prices are a little high here, but that’s to be expected when you are right on the beach.

Cheers!

Tips:

  • It’s sandy and it’s the Oregon Coast. So bring towels, flip flops and a windbreaker:)
  • If you are on a budget (which those of us with half pints sometimes are) pack a fun picnic and grab a growler of their beer to go!
  • If you go during tourist season, be ready for a wait…this place is very popular

Fort George Brewery-Astoria, OR

No trip to Ft. Stevens for camping is complete for the Schumacher clan without a stop at Ft. George Brewery. Great atmosphere, great people, great beer…and they love your half pint (they even have onsies!).

Ft. George Brewery in Astoria is a fun little brewery with GREAT food and even better beer. Their sampler is one of the best around and I’m addicted to their Wit! My husband is a big fan of their Vortex IPA…but I’ve yet to find a beer there that I didn’t like. They even have a fun drink for your half pint called a Dakota Fanning (it’s squirt with cranberry juice).

The food here is wonderful also. My favorite menu item is the tuna melt but I also enjoy the fish tacos.

As far as kids go this place is a favorite! They have games for kids to take back to the table to play, LOTS of things to look at and a kids menu! Plus, everyone there is really laid back so you never feel like you are bothering anyone.

PLEASE check this place out. You will not be sorry!!

Cheers!
