Ale & Cider on Tap

Black Widow PorterBlack Widow
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. Black Widow’s web envelops the entire company every year now. 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, Roast
Hops: Chinook, Sterling Additional Ingredient: Licorice Root
OG: 1.074  TG: 1.017  ABV: 7.35  IBU: 41  SRM: 38

Purple Haze
A light, crisp and refreshingly fruity ale made with boysenberries. Purple Haze is very lightly hopped to allow the berry flavor to shine. Slightly more tart and fuller bodied than our Ruby recipe, this is a pub favorite.
Malts: Premium Two Row
Fruit: Boysenberries
Hops: Centennial
OG: 1.040  TG: 1.007  ABV: 4.26  IBU: 4  SRM: 3

On Nitro Tap:
Boysenberry Cream Stout
A healthy helping of Lactose and a hint of Boysenberries give this nice little winter refresher a crisp and creamy finish. 
Malts: NW Pale Ale, Blackprinz, Roast 
Hops: Goldings, Crystal 
OG: 1.056  TG: 1.012  ABV: 5.68  IBU: 13  SRM: 33

Winter Is Coming… IPA
So let’s hold on to the dog days for as long possible. A beautiful golden color reminds us of the setting sun. And a fresh, floral crispiness recalls memories of brighter days. 
Malts: TF&S Pearl, Superior Pilsen, C-15 
Hops: Horizon, Centennial 
OG: 1.069  TG: 1.008  ABV: 7.9  IBU: 84  SRM: 5

Hops: Goldings
OG: 1.042  TG: 1.005  ABV: 4.77  IBU: 26  SRM: 7

Rye FTW!
Pilsen, Rye, Crystal Rye, and Victory! All these malts work together to provide a smooth, well blended, dark amber Rye ale with a mildly spicy finish.
Malts: Pilsen, Rye, Crystal Rye, Victory
Hops: Cascade, Amarillo
OG: 1.050  TG: 1.009  ABV: 5.29  IBU: 49  SRM: 11

Saladin Black Ale
Big, bold, and unforgiving. This pirate ale was brewed in the style of a traditional IPA to survive the long months at sea. The addition of Blackprinze and Crystal malts provide some extra complexity to this full bodied ale. 3 rounds of extremely healthy dry hopping were used to keep her afloat and prepare her for a months long aging with Hogshead Oak.
Malts: Pale Ale, Blackprinze, C-60, C-135/165
Hops: Chinook, Centennial, Falconers Flight 7C
OG: 1.067  TG: 1.013  ABV: 7  IBU: 100  SRM: 38

Hammerhead
A Classic Northwest pale ale and McMenamins top selling beer. This rich chestnut colored gem is a model of harmony between hops and malted barley. Hammerhead's signature Cascade hop nose and intense hopped flavor blend nicely with the caramel tones from the crystal malt. This beer has a vocal following. To run out is an unforgivable sin.
Malts: Premium 2-row Malt and 75L Crystal Malt
Hops: Cascade
OG: 1.056 TG 1.010  ABV: 5.93  IBU: 44  SRM: 11

Terminator Stout
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! The devoted swear by it, and it remains one of our top selling ales year after year.
Malts: Premium 2-row Malt, Munich Malt, 40L Crystal, and Black Barley
Hops: Chinook and Cascade
OG: 1.065  TG: 1.015  ABV: 6.45  IBU: 30  SRM: 35

Ruby Ale

Ruby
One of our most popular standards, we still make Ruby with the same aims we had when brewing the first batch back in March 1986: To create an ale light, crisp and refreshingly fruity. Great Western Premium 2-row and 42 pounds of Oregon-grown and processed raspberry puree is used to craft every colorful batch. Simple but delicious. Taste the original!
Malts: Premium 2-row Malt
Hops: Vary
Fruit: Raspberries
OG: 1.039  TG: 1.005  ABV: 4.39

Enjoy a pint of McMenamins' finest!
Beer available to go at all McMenamins locations.

Edgefield Blackberry Hard Apple Cider
What says “late summer” in the Pacific Northwest more than the scrumptious taste of wild blackberries? Dark garnet in color, the aromas of fresh blackberries burst from the glass. Gluten Free!
ABV: 6.5%
