McMenamins Irish Stout (on Nitro tap)
This is our Halfway to Saint Patrick’s Day Seasonal and will pour exclusively on our nitro taps for the occasion. 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!

30th Anniversary of the First Brew at Hillsdale
On October 25, 1985 the very first beer was brewed up in a small copper kettle at McMenamins Hillsdale Brewery. It was a liquid malt extract brew, highly hopped for the era, dubbed Hillsdale Ale and was brewed by the Hillsdale's very first brewer Ron Wolf. Falling loosely under the ‘Special Bitter' classification of beer styles, Hillsdale Ale became McMenamins first bona-fide company standard beer, pre-dating Terminator, Hammerhead and Ruby.

Edgefield Hard Apple Cider
Locally grown apples are juiced and fermented into a light, crisp and refreshing hard cider.
Dark garnet in color, the aromas of fresh blackberries burst from the glass. The slightly tannic & tart blackberry component is balanced out by a small amount of residual sugar, while the fermented apple rounds out the mid-palate & finish.
