The resulting amber colored monster is a juicy hop bomb with a complex grapefruit nose and a killer piney after-bitter that will surely sate even the most ardent hop addict’s appetite.

Sleepy Hollow Nut Brown
Time has slipped by again and we are confronted with a myriad of changes in the season of autumn. It’s the time of year to start savoring the potion of your choice to warm the bones and soothe the soul. And one can’t think of anything better than the McMenamins classic seasonal brew, Sleepy Hollow Nut Brown. This longtime favorite has a chestnut color and medium body that will cast an otherworldly spell over you. The complex malt character, well balanced with Chinook and US Golding hops, will have you walking in a continual reverie. Legend has it that Ichabod Crane downed a few Nut Brown Ales listening to local ghost tales and scary legends at the Van Tassel merry-making party before his fateful trip home. Be watchful and clear-headed on your way home lest you begin to grow fanciful, see shapes and shadows in the night and hear things in the howling wind. It may just be your imagination running away with you or it very well may be the Headless Horseman on his fire-breathing black stallion following you!

Mort’s Mild (on nitro)
In our current beer culture of double and triple strength brews, some may scoff at the humble mild. Yet this style of ale was culturally engineered by British brewers for working class pub-goers, to be drunk by the gallon, from clock off until last call. Low in strength but rich in roast, almond, toffee, and chocolate flavors, you’ll find this silky pint pleasantly balanced with its slight hop bite. Named for infamous Edgefield dock-sale customer, Mort Muldoon, who once said that strong pints make for early bedtimes. Join Mort to hear the chimes at midnight! Make yours a mild.
