Mosaic Solo Pale Ale
This refreshing and flavorful pale ale is hopped exclusively with one of our favorite varieties at the Old Church, mosaic hops. Flavorful and complex, mosaic hops display a pleasant berry aroma along with notes of evergreen, citrus, and a mild floral earthiness. A daughter of Simcoe and a Nugget derived male, Mosaic hops have seen an explosion of use in craft beer. Look for them in just about any hop forward beer, especially IPA's and Pale Ales.

McMenamins Irish Stout
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.

Thundercone Fresh Hop Ale
Fresh (or wet) Cascade hops were frantically delivered straight from the hop fields to every McMenamins Brewery and each batch of "Thundercone Fresh Hop Ale" was brewed within hours of the hops being picked off of the vine. The resulting beer is an absolute fresh hop showcase. This beer starts with a smooth foundation and just a slight maltiness. The real star of this show is the fresh Cascade hops used for both flavoring and aroma. Five pounds of fresh Cascades per barrel were added in three different additions in every batch. These fresh Cascades overwhelm "Thundercone Fresh Hop Ale" with an earthy, raw hop decadence that can only come from fresh hops. It is a greener and more unadulterated flavor and aroma than comes from dried hops. The citrusy, flowery and grapefruit notes usually associated with Cascade hops are still present but with an amazing fresh hop funkiness added into the mix. This beer is so refreshing and hop-filled that you may think you are dreaming but "Thundercone Fresh Hop Ale" is in reality a short lived dream come true.
Malts: Superior Pilsen, Caramel Munich 40
Hops: Chinook, Fresh Cascade
OG: 1.061 TG: 1.013 ABV: 6.19 IBU: 56 SRM: 7

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.

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.

Hard Cider & Perry

Edgefield Hard Apple Cider
Produced in 3,500 gallon batches 6 or 7 times per year, the Edgefield Winery has been producing hard cider since 1992. Relying on the bounty that the Columbia Gorge offers us, we work with a local cider house that sources apples from cold storage to obtain fresh pressed apple juice throughout the year. The apples pressed off for our cider are primarily a blend of Red Delicious, Golden Delicious (added for color), Granny Smith (for acidity), and Fuji, Galas, and Honey Crisp (to increase sweetness).

The freshly pressed juice arrives at the Edgefield Winery, where it is pumped into temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks. Employing a cool fermentation to maintain as much of the fresh apple aromas as possible, we ferment the cider until it is completely dry. A bit of fresh-pressed apple juice is then blended back into the hard cider for some sweetness and to balance the acidity. We keg the cider with some CO2 spritz, and ship it off to all of our locations to enjoy!
ABV: 6.8%

Edgefield Blackberry Cider
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.The freshly pressed juice arrives at the Edgefield Winery, where it is pumped into tempera­ture-controlled stainless steel tanks. Employing a cool fermentation to maintain as much of the fresh apple aromas as possible, we fer­ment the cider until it is completely dry. We then blend in a gener­ous addition of Blackberry juice for sweetening, color, and flavor.
