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 2013 version of Kris Kringle is 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!

Major Threat VI
The latest installment in our double IPA series is a credit to its hop-packed lineage and sports roughly three pounds of fresh, whole cone hops per luscious barrel. The resulting amber colored monster is a juicy hop bomb with a citrus nose, smooth bitterness, and hints of herbs and spices. Balanced with caramel and nutty malts, this Major Threat was tailored for the coming cold weather season. Find a fireplace and enjoy!

On Nitro Tap:
McMenamins Irish Stout
McMenamins Irish Stout is our interpretation of the internationally renowned beer style that originated in Ireland. McMenamins Irish Stout is made as traditionally as possible with our own little twist. 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. A touch of the Irish, the blessings of St. Patrick and a pint of McMenamins Irish Stout to you!

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 to be light, crisp and refreshingly fruity. Great Western Premium 2-row and 252 pounds of Oregon-grown and processed raspberry puree is used to craft every colorful batch. Simple yet delicious, taste the original!
Malts: Premium 2-row Malt
OG: 1.039 TG: 1.005 ABV: 4.39
Buzz Words: Raspberry, light, refreshing
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
Buzz Words: Hoppy, Amber, and Caramel
Temptation’s Wake IPA
Loaded with new world and old world hops, this IPA delivers a spice and citrus combo backed by a smooth malty body, capped with a frothy head that just won’t quit. In its wake, a satisfying grapefruit bitterness lingers on the pallet, tempting you for one more…

Black Rabbit Porter
This is semi-sweet ale with a roasty chocolate malt profile. This ale is defined by toasted nut flavors and a sweeter, softer finish than McMenamins' Terminator Stout.
