Purple People Eater Berry Weizen
It might be popular in certain brewing circles to rag on fruit beers, but don’t under-estimate this little monster. “Purple People Eater” has twice the fruit aroma of Ruby or Purple Haze. In fact both raspberries and boysenberries were added to the fermenter for a greater fruit flavor. For additional complexity, this beer was fermented on German hefeweizen yeast resulting in the beer’s unique ester profile. The mild bubblegum sweetness from the yeast blends beautifully with the smooth flavor of ripe berries and fresh cut straw. The use of wheat ensures that the beer will remain light whilemaintaining a creamy mouth-feel. Try a pint, it just might change the way you think about fruit beers!

Oh My! Bock
Approachable yet refined, this flavorful German style Mai-bock glows with the full malty flavor that only authentic European malts provide. Beneath its lacy dense head, rich toasted malt aromas dance on the tongue, with only the slightest hop spiciness to balance. A mild malt sweetness lingers on the palate while a crisp finish ensures that each sip goes down smooth. Try a pint and you'll be saying "Oh My!" before you know it.

On Nitro Tap:
Irish eyes will be smiling with the arrival of our Saint Patrick’s Day Seasonal that will pour exclusively on our ‘Nitro’ taps for the entire month of March. It is a very dark, ebony-colored stout
with a thick, creamy and long-lasting head. The flavor is a fantastic fusion of coffee-like roasted barley bitterness and semi-sweet chocolate. A moderate hop bitterness balances pleasingly with this hearty backbone, while tiny nitrogen bubbles enhance the sensation on your taste buds with a smooth, silky creaminess. One sip will have your head in the Emerald Isle clouds.

Constellations of zested grapefruit, fresh cut pine, mandarin orange, and tropical fruit play on your tongue, while a mild malt sweetness serves to balance the smooth bitterness of this Northwest style IPA.

Amber Waves Wheat
Unlike many American wheat beers; Amber Waves displays a prominent Northwest hop aroma and a gentle touch of bitterness. Aromas of citrus and straw swirl above its dense creamy head. The addition of Red wheat to the grist adds a spicy earthy character to the beer resulting in greater complexity and layering. While hoppier than a standard wheat beer, Amber Waves exhibits suburb balance and drinkability. This beer is ideal for those seeking something on the lighter side but who demand more out of their wheat beers.

Black Sheep Dunkelweizen
Most beer drinkers are familiar with German hefeweizen and its distinctive banana and clove character. What most folks don’t know is that in addition to brewing standard hefeweizen, the Bavarians also brew a darker or “dunkel” version of the beer. Dunkelweizen is fermented with the same yeast as it’s lighter and more popular cousin, but is mashed with darker grains resulting in its deep umber color. This beer is the perfect option for those individuals who prefer malty beers or who are looking to try something new.

Gleeful Goat Porter
It’s a little known fact that all the spent grain from the Old Church Brewery gets recycled as goat feed. Thus, when a big malty porter such as this one gets brewed the left overs make a special treat for our furry friends. This porter is packed with a variety of different specialty malts to add a generous amount of color and depth. A modest hop presence balances the beer without over powering it. Expect notes of caramel, coffee, chocolate, and a hint of spice in this complex full-bodied porter.

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
OG: 1.039 TG: 1.005 ABV: 4.39%
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
OG: 1.056 TG: 1.010 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.

Hard Cider & Perry
Edgefield Hard Apple Cider
Locally grown apples are juiced and fermented into a light, crisp and refreshing hard cider.
Seasonal Cider: Pomegranate
Pomegranate cider was our second ever seasonal cider, first released in July 2013. This release will be its third appearance, and it is expected to remain on tap until the end of April (to be followed by cherry cider). Our pomegranate cider is crafted with those unexpectedly gorgeous winter sunny days and the warming weather in mind. The tartness of the pomegranate is balanced with the crispness and sweetness of the apple, making for a refreshing quaff rain or shine.
