Beer available to go at all McMenamins locations.
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 2014 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 five 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!

[served in a 10-ounce snifter]

On Nitro Tap:
McMenamins Irish Stout
McMenamins Irish Stout is our interpretation of the internationally renowned beer style that originated in Ireland. McMenamins Irish Stout is made as traditionally as possible with our own little twist. 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. A touch of the Irish, the blessings of St. Patrick and a pint of McMenamins Irish Stout to you!

Major Threat DIPA
The latest installment in our double IPA series is a true west coast double IPA. We blasted this brew with eight different kinds of hops late in the boil to get a wide range of hop flavor and aroma, from citrusy and tropical to earth and spice notes. We then dry-hopped the batch post-fermentation with Zythos hop pellets to really put it over the top. Sit back and enjoy, cheers!

Highlander Strong Scottish Ale
The Highlander Strong Scottish Ale is a great beer to enjoy in the cold fall and winter months. It is made from six different malts to produce a beer that is complex yet smooth. The malts are the star ingredient that warms the body and fills the pallet with various malt flavors. The hops in the Highland were added to keep the balance in the beer without playing a part in the flavor of the beer. So enjoy a pint and have good cheers.

Bagdad Ale is a benchmark beer for McMenamins, our Bagdad is one for the lover of light, crisp, and flavorful beers.

This series will be going A-Z until we’ve exhausted all the possibilities! Enjoy the ride with us.
