Thundercone Fresh Hop Ale

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.

Purple Haze

Copper Moon

Copper Moon
The first thing you’ll notice about Copper Moon is the coppery orange luminescence radiating out of the pint glass. This comes from the special combination of three different Organic malts in every batch. Those Organic malts also impart a flavorsome yet summery smooth sweetness that quenches your thirst at the same time as tantalizing your taste buds. The upfront hop bitterness of Copper Moon is relatively low, complementing the malts nicely without being overpowering. The hop flavor and aroma are another matter, as the Centennial and Sterling hops used in the latter stages of each batch intermingle delightfully to generate a dazzling citrusy, flowery and slightly spicy olfactory experience. All these things blend into a refreshing, flavorful and organic Summer Pale Ale. There’s a Copper Moon risin’ again this summer across McMenamins; make sure that you check it out.
Malts: Gambrinus Organic Pale Malt, Great Western Organic Munich Malt, Great Western Organic 60L Crystal Malt

Back To Skool IPA
The final days of summer are upon us and everyone knows what that means; time for the little humans to get ready for another year of school. Don’t worry though parents, between the pants shopping, the new pencils, and the whining we’ve brewed up a little something to make the experience less painful. This beer showcases the resinous citrus of Chinook hops with the floral spiciness of Crystal hops. A mild caramel character pulls everything together in this medium bodied and bold NW IPA. Relax with a pint or two and before you know it the little ones will be out of your hair.

Urlaub In Berlin Weiβe
For those unfamiliar with the style, Berliner Weiβe (Weisse) is a highly carbonated sour wheat beer native to Berlin. It is often served with fruit flavored syrup added to balance the acidity of the beer. The resulting brew is uniquely crisp and refreshing experience. Each pint of our Weiβe is served with your choice of syrup on the side. Mix in the syrup to your desired level of sweetness and enjoy. For added flavor all our syrups are made fresh from real ingredients and are therefore subject to availability. Ask your server about our current list of available flavors.

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.

Rye Baby Amber Ale
Don’t let the use of Rye scare you off from this exceptionally refreshing and malty amber ale. Rye lends a distinct but subtle spicy character which mingles nicely with the beers other ingredients. Hops are present but not dominant, allowing both malt and hops to shine. Pine, Resinous, and floral hop flavors juxtapose an earthy, rich, and toasted malt body. Each sip eventually slides into a lingering bitterness balanced by a slight residual sweetness. This beer is sure to please both the adamant rye enthusiast and the novice beer drinker. Don’t be such a cry baby, it’s just rye baby!

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.
