Kris Kringle
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 2012 version of Kris Kringle is a 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!

Kick Back IPA
Sometimes you just want to grab an IPA and kick back and relax a little after a long day at work or play.  Well with this medium bodied IPA you can do that as well as get a little "kick" back from the IPA itself.  Higher in alcohol than your typical IPA it finishes with a dry mouth feel that allows those hops to really linger.  Floral and citrus aromas meld with the piney smack of the Zeus hops.  Come grab a pint and either kick back or get the kick!!

Buzz by Annie Coffee Porter
There was a barista named Annie who loved to wake folks up with morning shots of coffee.  Today she incorporates this wake-up call in a bold and flavorful coffee porter.  Deep roast malts give off their chewy and bold mouth feel.  A concentrated extract from McMenamins El Salvador coffee blend was then added to the finished beer in a bright tank.  Once mixed together the coffee roast flavor and aromas enhance the slight roast bitterness from the malts.  Low hop profile allow the malts and coffee to do their thing.

Fireside Red
OSF's popular Fireside Red, named after our Fireside Bar, is a version of traditional red ale. Medium bodied with a semi-sweet malt flavor. Mild and earthy hop flavor and aromas balance out the drink and leaves you with a somewhat dry finish yet not a lot of lingering bitterness. A great beer for those colder days and nights when having a few with friends around a warm fire is the goal!

Hammerhead
A classic Northwest pale ale. 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.

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.

Bulldog English Mild
The Bulldog English Mild is just what the name suggests: Mild as well as English style. Mellow malt flavors, low hop characteristics and a dry finish are what make this beer what it is. Slight tones of caramel malt meld well with the low hop flavor and bitterness. A thick creamy head leaves a nice lacing on the glass as you easily sip this quaffable ale. The Bulldog won't bite much, yet it is worth every taste!

On Nitro Tap:
Dr. Nebulous Oatmeal Stout

Dark and smooth. This is the best way to describe this very big and robust oatmeal stout. Tones of roasted malts pack a punch with the overall bold flavors that the Dr. has concocted! Taking his experiment a step farther the Dr. also has mixed this beer on the Nitro tap relinquishing the mellow gas to improve upon this smooth and delicious drink. A creamy head lasts throughout the pint as the beer easily slides around your mouth. The Dr. recommends to only take two otherwise you will have to call him in the morning for more relief!
