Black Widow Porter

Black Widow
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.

This pale ale is a tropical escape in a glass, light and refreshing like an ocean breeze. The combination of Simcoe, Mosaic and Cascade hops creates notes of tropical fruit and citrus.

The Raven Porter
McMenamins East Vancouver Brewery
“And the Raven, never flitting, still is sitting, still is sitting. And his eyes have all the seeming of a demon’s that is dreaming....” Dark and mysterious, but light on the palate. Dry, but with the hints of sweetness, smoothly blended with flavors of chocolate and a touch of roast…. Don’t let it scare you! Drink it up and nevermore!
