Kris Kringle
The 2015 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 two 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!

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.
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

Haze Berry Wheat
We Crossed two of oureasy drinkingbeers to create this refreshinglydelightful fruit beer.Made with 42 pounds of boysenberries, it is very similar to its stable mate the Purple Haze,but adding white wheat to the grain bill increases the body and head retention.
Malt: Premium Two Row, White Wheat Fruit: Boysenberries
Hops: Cascade
OG: 1.039 TG: 1.005 ABV: 4.2 IBU: 4 SRM: 3

Dandy Amber Ale
This fancy auburn ale is the sensible and refreshing choice to satisfy the sophisticated. Malty but not overly sweet, mild hop flavors and medium bodied make this a smooth, delicate drink to be savored. If you are looking for something different, something classy, if you dress like Mr. Peanut, then this is the beer for you. Cheers.
Malts: ESB. Maris Otter, Oats, Chocolate and Honey malt
Hops: Horizon and Cascade
OG: 1.053 TG: 1.011 ABV: 5.4 IBU: 31 SRM: 12

Impromptu Porter (on Nitro tap)
Smokey, rich, oaky and dark, this beer is fantastic take on the classic Porter style with a winter twist. Baird's Peated malt and Thomas Faucett Smoked malt give this beer subtle smoke-y undertones. Smooth, Full Bodied and Delicious, this beer is best gulped by the campfire on a cool winter night.
Malt: 2 Row, Vienna Malt, Smoked Malt, C-40, Brown, Chocolate, Blackprinz, Heavily Peated, Black
Hops: Columbus, Cascade, Perle
OG: 1.056 FG: 1.015 ABV: 5.29 IBU: 25 SRM: 25 

Daydream IPA
Drifting along? Fell asleep amongst the flowers for a couple of hours? Awake and inhale the swirling floral aromas and discover the pungent, tropical hop flavors of this well-balanced IPA. We tamed the bitterness and malt flavors to showcase the blend of late addition Northwest hops (pine, citrus, grapefruit) in the kettle and Australian Galaxy pellets (passion fruit) in the fermenter.
Malts: Pilsen, Wheat, Munich and Amber
Hops: Centennial, Mosaic, and Citra
OG: 1.062 TG: 1.009 ABV: 6.8 IBU: 100 SRM: 5

Gemini DIPA
This Double IPA was brewed with a Pale malt base, Munich, Amber and Honey malts were added to give the beer flavor and color. A low final gravity means there is very little sweetness allowing the twin hop flavors of pine and citrus to mix with the perceptible alcohol taste while still keeping the beer crisp and light in body.
Malts: Pale, Munich, Honey, Amber
Hops: Centennial, Horizon, Golding
OG: 1.069 TG: 1.012 ABV: 7.4 IBU: 81 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.

Hops: Cascade
OG: 1.056 TG 1.010  ABV: 5.93  IBU: 44  SRM: 11

Ruby Ale

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!

Hops: Chinook

Terminator Stout
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

Edgefield Hard Apple Cider
Locally grown apples are juiced and fermented into a light, crisp and refreshing hard cider.
ABV: 6.8%

Seasonal Cider: Blackberry
What says "late summer" in the Pacific Northwest more than the scrumptious taste of wild blackberries?? Utilizing two iconic Northwest fruits - apples and blackberries - we have crafted this delicious new seasonal cider bringing together the crisp bite of the apple with the overt fruitiness of the blackberry.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.
