Jam Session ISA
Spring is in full bloom and its song plays the soundtrack to a beautiful season. Wanting to add our instrument to the collaboration, the McMenamins brewers were inspired to produce Jam Session ISA, a light and easy drinking beer that embodies the spirit of spring as it fades into summer. Being an India style, expect our quartet of hops to be the front man of this band, providing strong riffs of floral and pine and a beat of citrus. A majority of the hops is added in late additions, which provides full flavors and aromas without the bittering astringency. Whether you’re a hard-rockin’ IPA drinker or a classical golden ale drinker, you’ll find the essence and song of the season in every pint. Enjoy a Jam Session ISA and turn the volume of your day up to 11. A one, a two, a one, two, three, Cheers!

A light, crisp and refreshingly fruity ale made with boysenberries. Purple Haze is very lightly hopped to allow the berry flavor to shine. Slightly more tart and fuller bodied than our Ruby recipe, this is a pub favorite.

Auspicious skies and open patios signal winter’s end, celebrate the growing light with this crisp and clean tasting IPA. Simcoe hops give off mild citrus flavors and a balanced bitter finish while the Caramel-Vienna malt gives a golden glow and a hint of sweetness. Take heed and enjoy.

Plattsmouth pale is a light refreshing ale made for all the lovers of the Nebraska Bitter. Cascade hops were used liberally towards the end of the boil to increase the floral and citrus notes while keeping the bitterness in check. Balanced malt flavor and light body give this beer such broad appeal that even Ruby drinkers will be tempted to try a pint.
Malts: Pale. Maris Otter and C-15
Hops: Chinook and Cascade
OG: 1.047 TG: 1.008 ABV: 5 IBU: 31 SRM: 5
White Van Wheat
This Belgian style wheat beer was brewed with traditional malts and yeast which gives it a light color and crisp, slightly fruity finish. Crushed coriander seeds and dried bitter orange peel were added late in the boil to compliment the yeast. Cascade and Centennial hops give the beer some Northwest flavor and Tettnanger hops finish with a continental aroma. It may take a few sips to taste it all.
Malts: Pilsen, Wheat, and Rye
Hops: Centennial, Cascade and Tettnanger
OG: 1.049 TG: 1.007 ABV: 5.4 IBU: 28 SRM: 4
This brown porter makes a perfect session style ale with its smooth taste and low alcohol level of about four percent you can enjoy this beer for hours on end. Made with the English originals in mind the Pounder is comprised predominately of brown malt and English 2-row with a little crystal-40 for sweetness and a pinch of chocolate malt to round out this brown bliss. The hop presence is slightly more pro-nounced than the average porter to balance out the residual sugar and low amount of alcohol. So get your mates together and have a session with the Pounder Porter.
Malts: British Maris Otter, Brown Malt, Crystal 40, Chocolate
Hops: Galena, Cascade
OG:1.045 TG:1.015 ABV: 3.9 IBU:15 SRM:27
Bagdad Ale is a benchmark beer for McMenamins, inspired by the Pilsner style, our Bagdad Ale is one for the lager lovers. Its fine hop aroma and crisp, light finish makes this a great ale for hot weather. It has become a favorite at McMenamins Bagdad Theater in Portland.

Hops: Chinook and Golding
OG: 1.045 TG: 1.006 ABV: 5.03 IBU: 22 SRM: 7
A classic Northwest pale ale. This rich chestnut colored gem is a model of harmony between hops & malted barley. Hammerhead's signature Cascade hop nose & intense hop flavor blend nicely with the caramel tones from the Crystal malt. To run out is an unforgivable sin.

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

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 & processed raspberry puree is used to craft every colorful batch.

Edgefield Hard Apple Cider
Locally grown apples are juiced and fermented into a light, crisp and refreshing hard cider.
Edgefield Perry – 100% Pear Hard Cider
Just as “hard apple cider” is fermented apples, “perry” is fermented pears. We started with a freshly pressed blend 82% Bartlett and 18% Anjou pears, and feremented this to dryness. Pears, unlike apples and grapes, contain a higher percentage of unfermentable sugars (mainly sorbitol), so the finished fermentation contains a higher level of sweetness from these residual sugars. To balance out the acidity, additional fresh-pressed pear juice was also blended back into the fermented perry.
