McMenamins Irish Stout (on Nitro tap)
This beer is a very dark ebony colored stout with a thick 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 smoothness.
Malts: Premium Pale Malt, Flaked Barley, Brown Malt, Roast, Chocolate
Hops: Chinook, Golding
OG: 1.045 TG: 1.007 ABV: 4.90 IBU: 43 SRM: 31
Originally created at the Thompson Brewery over 20 years ago on October 15, 1991 and made once a year by all Thompson Brewers to come after that, Black Widow has become an expected and welcome Halloween treat at the Thompson Public House in Salem. Black Widow's web envelops the entire company every year now. Each deep-black goblet of Black Widow is packed full of the robust notes afforded by generous amounts of black and roast malts and further spirited with ethereal wisps of caramel and licorice. Both substantial and sublime, this elixir is sure to slake the most fiendish of thirsts. Open up a creaking pub door, find a seat with friends and family and nourish your inner ghoul with a brew steeped in tradition and mystery. A good howl at the Cheshire moon couldn't hurt, either.
Malts: British Pale Malt, Munich, Flaked Barley, Wheat, 135/165 Crystal, Black, Roast
Additional Ingredient: Licorice Root
OG: 1.074 TG: 1.017 ABV: 7.35 IBU: 30 SRM: 38
Ultra (single hop) Pale
When a brewer really wants to pin down the attributes of a hop variety, he or she will sometimes make a beer that incorporates only that particular hop for all bittering, flavor, and aroma components of the recipe. Well folks, that is what is happening here. This NW style pale ale was brewed with Ultra hops, and Ultra hops alone. The result is a medium bodied pale ale that has spicy and floral hop overtones.
Malts: GW Pale, Baird 30-37
OG: 1.050 TG: 1.008 ABV: 5.42 IBU: 43 SRM: 6
30th Anniversary Hillsdale Ale
On October 25th 1985 McMenamins began its journey into the history of Oregon brewing with the liquid malt extract based Hillsdale Ale - a ‘Special Bitter' style beer that pre-dates Terminator, Hammerhead and Ruby as the company's first bona fide flagship beer. To celebrate this historic brew day, and the thirty years of hard work and creativity that have come after it, we've carefully studied the margins, scribbles, and beer stained errata of the original brewery records in an attempt to recreate one of the Pacific Northwest's lost legacy beers. We believe this modern version is true to its past as a medium-bodied, straw-colored ale with a crisp, light bitterness owing to Centennial, Tettnang and Brewers Gold hops. The 30th Anniversary Hillsdale Ale will be released as a one day special pouring at all McMenamins locations on October 25th 2015.
Malts: Great Western Malting NW Pale Ale Malt, Great Western Malting Munich Malt, Great Western Malting Dextrapils
Hops: Centennial (Bittering), Brewer's Gold (Flavor & Aroma), Tettnanger (Flavor & Aroma)
OG: 1.045 TG: 1.008 ABV: 4.77 IBU: 38 SRM: 4
Orange Goblin IPA
This India Pale Ale pours bright orange with an inviting frothy white head on top. Orange Goblin starts with a reserved fruity, almost spicy aroma. At first sip hop bitterness wells up over a malty undercurrent reminiscent of baking bread. The finish is hoppy and bitter and full of citrusy grapefruit like notes.
Malts: Premium Pale Malt, Victory Malt
Hops: Brewers Gold, Centennial, Cascade
OG: 1.065 TG: 1.011 ABV: 6.97 IBU: 80 SRM: 5
Thundercone Fresh Hop Ale
Fresh (or wet) Simcoe hops were frantically delivered straight from the hop fields to 20 McMenamins Breweries and each batch of "Thundercone" 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 Simcoe hops per barrel were added in three different additions in every batch. These fresh hops overwhelm "Thundercone" 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. This beer is so refreshing and hop-filled that you may think you are dreaming but this beer is in reality a short lived dream come true.
Malts: Superior Pilsen, Caramel Munich 40
Hops: Galena, Cascade, Fresh Simcoe
OG: 1.061 TG: 1.013 ABV: 6.19 IBU: 58 SRM: 7
Electric Orange Weizen
A generous amount of high quality wheat malt is employed to give this beer a rich body and frothy white foam head. Spanish sweet orange peels are allowed to boil in the kettle for several minutes before this ale is sent to the fermenter. The result is a flavorful but citrusy and refreshing American style wheat beer.
Malts: Premium Two Row, Wheat, Crystal 40L
OG: 1.045 TG: 1.008 ABV: 4.77 IBU: 15 SRM: 4
This golden hued ale uses Cascade hops in modest amounts to create a subtle flavor and bitterness. It is named after SW Nebraska Street, the street that the Fulton Pub and Brewery is located, and where it was first brewed.
Malts: Premium Two Row, Crystal 40L
OG: 1.044 TG: 1.009 ABV: 4.52 IBU: 20 SRM: 4
Oatmeal Pale (on Nitro tap)
This NW style pale ale is characterized by a floral, as well as citrus like hoppiness. This beer has a medium body with a mildly bready malt quality. The use of rolled oats gives this beer a nice smooth texture and drinkability.
Malts: GW Pale, Cara-Munich 40L, Baird 135-165L, Rolled Oats
Hops: Chinook, Golding, Cascade
OG: 1.050 TG: 1.007 ABV: 5.55 IBU: 37 SRM: 8
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
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. Great Western Premium 2-row and 42 pounds of Oregon-grown and processed raspberry puree is used to craft every colorful batch. Simple but delicious. Taste the original!
Malts: Premium 2-row Malt
OG: 1.039 TG: 1.005 ABV: 4.39 IBU: 5 SRM: 3
Black as the darkest night, rich as the most decadent dessert, Terminator is for the true stout lover. This is a full bodied and flavor packed ale which draws its robust complexity from kiln-baked specialty grains. Look for a wide array of toasted, chocolate, nutty and coffee-like flavors in every pint! The devoted swear by it, and it remains one of our top selling ales year after year.
Malts: Premium 2-row Malt, Munich Malt, 40L Crystal, and Black Barley
Hops: Chinook and Cascade
OG: 1.065 TG: 1.015 ABV: 6.45 IBU: 30 SRM: 35
Hard Cider & Perry
Edgefield Hard Apple Cider
Locally grown apples are juiced and fermented into a light, crisp and refreshing hard cider.
Seasonal: Blackberry Cider
Dark garnet in color, the aromas of fresh blackberries burst from the glass. The slightly tannic and tart blackberry component is balanced out by a small amount of residual sugar, while the fermented apple rounds out the mid-palate and finish.
