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. 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. ABV: 7.35 IBU: 40 SRM: 38
Thundercone Fresh Hop Ale
Fresh (or wet) Cascade hops were frantically delivered straight from the hop fields to every McMenamins Brewery and each batch of Thundercone Fresh Hop Ale was brewed within hours of the hops being picked off of the vine. The resulting beer is an absolute fresh hop showcase. This beer starts with a smooth foundation and just a slight maltiness. The real star of this show is the fresh hops used for both flavoring and aroma. Five pounds of fresh Brewers Gold hops per barrel were added in three different additions in every batch. These fresh Brewers Gold hops overwhelm Thundercone Fresh Hop Ale with an earthy, raw hop decadence that can only come from fresh hops. It is a greener and more unadulterated flavor and aroma than comes from dried hops. The blackcurrant, fruity and spicy notes usually associated with Brewers Gold hops are still present but with an amazing fresh hop funkiness added into the mix. This beer is so refreshing and hop-filled that you may think you are dreaming but Thundercone Fresh Hop Ale is in reality a short lived dream come true.
Malts: Superior Pilsen, Caramel Munich 40
Hops: Chinook, Fresh Brewers Gold
OG: 1.061 TG: 1.013 ABV: 6.19 IBU: 60 SRM: 7
Big and dangerous, this Double IPA is sure to be a hit. A light malt base provides the foundation for a massive hop bill. Simcoe and Chinook give it a piney, resinous quality while the Meridian hops crank out the tropical fruit and berry flavors. This beer packs a serious punch – you’ve been warned!
ABV: 8.51 IBU: 100+ SRM: 7
This dark German wheat beer starts with a strong malt base. The rich, caramel malt flavor is accented by the banana and clove esters created by the German yeast strain used. Prost! ABV: 4.77 IBU: 17 SRM: 13
This distinctive IPA has a high level of clean bitterness that is balanced by the richness of the pale malt and spiciness of rye malt. This IPA has a Piney/herbal flavor from multiple late hop additions.
Coffee And Cream Ale
A mellow malt flavor and just a touch a hop make it an easy drinker while the addition of lactose gives it a creaminess that will truly satisfy your thirst. Throw in some fresh roasted coffee beans and cocoa nibs and you’ve got a truly delectable treat!
ABV: 4.77 IBU: 25 SRM: 4
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.
ABV: 5.93% IBU: 44 SRM: 11
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.
ABV: 6.45% IBU: 30 SRM: 35
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: 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. the original!
