Enjoy a pint of McMenamins' finest!
Beer available to go at all McMenamins locations.
Brewer: Hanns Anderson
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!

Blast Furnace Double IPA
It’s cold out there! And it’s only gonna get colder. I suggest you warm up with this high gravity, high octane Double IPA. Copious amounts of Pale and Pearl malts level out the heavy Amarillo hop additions. While the Caramel Munich gives this full bodied, decadent IPA a slightly bready character.

Black Widow Porter
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
Hops: Chinook, Sterling
OG: 1.074 TG: 1.017 ABV: 7.35 IBU: 41 SRM: 38
Turf Burner Amber
Some people call it fall, but I’ve always thought of this as football season. Heavy additions of Caramel Munich and Crystal malts give this amber a deep, rich pigskin-esque color, while the ever noble Sterling hops give it a crisp, clean finish. Turf Burner was inspired by the greatest season of the year, and is designed to be the perfect pint whether you like watching the leaves turn and drop from the trees or the Ducks put up out of this world numbers and drop the hammer on whoever is unlucky enough to be playing them on any given weekend.

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!
Malts: Pale Ale, Flaked Barley, Munich, C15 & C120 Crystal, Chocolate and Roast
Hops: Nugget and US Golding
OG: 1.050 TG: 1.011 ABV: 5.03 IBU: 17 SRM: 18
Sparky’s Brown Porter
Old Sparky is a much more mellow than most of his Porter brothers and sisters. He prefers blending his complex caramel flavors and traditional English hop steps to showing off huge malt and roast profiles, while maintaining a substantial amount of strength. So if you are in need of a good, easy drinking, old school Porter with a kick, Sparky has just the thing.
Malts: NW Pale, Crystal C-120, Crystal 135/165, Brown, Chocolate
Hops: Galena and Goldings
OG: 1.061 TG: 1.010 ABV: 6.58 IBU: 35 SRM: 24
Buzz Words: Brown, Chocolatey
McMenamins Irish Stout
Irish eyes will be smiling with this beer. 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.
Malts: Pale Malt, Flaked Barley, Brown Malt, Choco-late Malt, Roasted Barley
Hops: Nugget, US Golding
OG: 1.045 TG: 1.007 ABV: 4.90 IBU: 38 SRM: 32
Lucky Little Lizard Wheat
Equal parts 2-Row and Wheat malts give this little critter some body and a bit of Honey malt and C-40 for flavor and color. Topped off with just a touch of US Goldings and Nugget hops, to add some character. Easy-Peasy, Wheat Ale. Drink it up!
Malts: Great Western Wheat, Great Western 2-Row, Gambrinus Honey malt, and C-40
Hops: Nugget, US Goldings
OG: 1.043 TG: 1.005 ABV: 4.90 IBU: 21 SRM: 6

1 69/70 IPA
This is an IPA with a rebellious streak, full of attitude and bursting with hoppy flavor. Packed of the usual suspects of northwest hops, Simcoe, Chinook, and Centennial, it is crisp and citrusy, with enough balance to drink all day long. Pushing the limits, is what this big boy is all about!
Malts: Superior Pilsen, NW Pale Ale, TF&S Mari Otter, Crystal 15L

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!

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-liker flavors in every pint! The devoted swear by it, and it remains one of our top selling ales year after year.

Buzz Words: Roasty, Black, Coffee
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.
