Kris Kringle - Just in time for the holidays, the busy-as-elves McMenamins brewers have created another wonderful gift for your taste buds this holiday season. The 2012 version of Kris Kringle is a hearty and robust ale with a big and bold malt complexity as well as an intense and flavorful hop profile. This "winter warmer" highlights the rich, toasty, aromatic and chocolaty malt flavors as its very sturdy foundation. Generous amounts of four different hop varieties were added in five different additions, which delivers a magnificent and massive hop assault. McMenamins brewers hope you enjoy this years' version of our old Holiday favorite, Kris Kringle. Happy Holidays and a Wonderful New Year!

Sleepy Hollow Nut Brown - Time has slipped by again and we are confronted with a myriad of changes in the season of autumn. It's the time of year to start savoring the potion of your choice to warm the bones and soothe the soul. And one can't think of anything better than the McMenamin's classic seasonal brew, Sleepy Hollow Nut Brown. This longtime favorite has a chestnut color and medium body that will cast an otherworldly spell over you. The complex malt character, well balanced with Chinook and US Golding hops, will have you walking in a continual reverie. Legend has it that Ichabod Crane downed a few Nut Brown Ales listening to local ghost tales and scary legends at the Van Tassel merry-making party before his fateful trip home. Be watchful and clear-headed on your way home lest you begin to grow fanciful, see shapes and shadows in the night and hear things in the howling wind. It may just be your imagination running away with you or it very well may be the Headless Horseman on his fire-breathing black stallion following you!

OG: 1.050 TG: 1.011 ABV: 5.03% IBU: 17 SRM: 18
Black Widow Porter - Originally created at the Thompson Brewery over 20 years ago on October 15, 1991 and made once a year by all Thompson Brewers to come after that, Black Widow has become an expected and welcome Halloween treat at the Thompson Public House in Salem. This year, however, Black Widow's web has enveloped the entire company, as every McMenamin's brewery made a batch this year. Each deep-black goblet of Black Widow is packed full of the robust notes afforded by generous amounts of black and roast malts and further spirited with ethereal wisps of caramel and licorice. Both substantial and sublime, this elixir is sure to slake the most fiendish of thirsts. Open up a creaking pub door, find a seat with friends and family and nourish your inner ghoul with a brew steeped in tradition and mystery. A good howl at the Cheshire moon couldn't hurt, either.
Malts: British Pale Malt, Munich, Flaked Barley, Wheat, 135/165 Crystal, Black and Roast

OG: 1.074 TG: 1.017 ABV: 7.35% IBU: 38 SRM: 38

Little Star IPA- As the seasons turn, the sky above wheels through the zodiac. From sign to sign the ever-changing cosmos traverse the years and, as we gaze up in wonder, so do we. However, some points of light are permanent; some of them are affixed as luminous sign posts that serve as reference for astronomers, sailors, and brewers. This IPA was spelled out in the stars for us as a supernova symphony of hop fluorescence exploding on to a palate-pleasing galaxy of malt flavor sure to make the drinker ponder great unknowns signified by one, little star.
Malts: Premium Two-Row, Vienna, Wheat, Crystal 15L, Crystal 40L
Hops: Simcoe, Brewer's Gold, Centennial, and Amarillo
OG: 1.060 TG: 1.011 ABV: 6.32% IBU: 71 SRM: 11
Safeside Wheat - A classic American Wheat ale, not as yeasty as the more common Hefewiezen. A barley to wheat ratio of 60/40 make this beer a challenge to brew. Gluten makes wheat great for bread, however difficult to lauter.
Malts: 2 Row, Munich, Wheat, and Roast.
Hops: Centennial, two additions of Tettnanger
OG: 1.040 TG: 1.007 ABV: 4.15% IBU: 12 SRM: 7
On Nitro Tap:
Barleycorn Nitro Cream Ale - Sometimes it's nice to have a little help from your friends. I learned everything I know about brewing from the last three brewers at the John Barleycorn, and the current brewer, Tim Proctor, let me use this smooth, tasty recipe. All the flakes of barley and corn make this beer ridiculously creamy and perfect for the nitro tap. So, next time you find yourself at the JBC, tell em' I sent you, and ask about the fastest cook in the west, the D-train.
Malts: 6-row, Organic Barley Flakes, Corn Flakes, Caramel Munich
Hops: US Golding and Delta
OG: 1.048 TG: 1.009 ABV: 5.03% IBU: 20 SRM: 4
Hammerhead - This rich, chestnut colored gem is a model of harmony between hops and malted barley. Its signature cascade hop nose and intense hopped flavor blend nicely with the caramel tones from the crystal malt. A true northwest pale ale.
Terminator - Black as the darkest night, rich as the most decadent dessert, Terminator is for the true stout lover. This is a full bodied and flavor packed ale which draws its robust complexity from kiln-baked specialty grains. Look for a wide array of toasted, chocolate, nutty and coffee-like flavors in every pint!
Ruby - Refreshingly fruity, this light, crisp and colorful ale is made with Oregon-grown raspberries; making it one of McMenamin's most popular ales since its first brew in 1986.
