Enjoy a pint of McMenamins' finest!
Beer available to go at all McMenamins locations.
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.

The synergy of Chinook, Crystal, and Santiam hops packs each sip with a seasonally appropriate spice character. Centennial hops give a mild citrus flavor while Horizon hops provide a delayed earthy bitterness to round out the beer. Beneath its dense head this beer glows a deep golden straw like wheat fields in fall.

OG: 1.060 TG: 1.010 ABV: 6.45 IBU: 75 SRM: 7
Amber Waves Wheat
Amber Waves displays a prominent Northwest hop aroma and a gentle touch of bitterness. Aromas of citrus and straw swirl above its dense creamy head. The addition of Red wheat to the grist adds a spicy earthy character to the beer resulting in greater complexity and layering.
Hops: Cascade, Centennial, Chinook
OG: 1.046 TG: 1.006 ABV: 5.16 IBU: 36 SRM: 4
The Single Hop Series Bagdad was designed as an educational exercise for both our brewers and for our guests. Delta Hops were first grown in the Hopsteiner Breeding program and are a cross between a Fuggle and Cascade. They are earthy, floral, and spicy. This series will be going A-Z until we’ve exhausted all the possibilities! Enjoy the ride with us.

Urlaub In Berlin Weiβe
For those unfamiliar with the style, Berliner Weiβe (Weisse) is a highly carbonated sour wheat beer native to Berlin. It is often served with fruit flavored syrup added to balance the acidity of the beer. The resulting brew is uniquely crisp and refreshing experience. Each pint of our Weiβe is served with your choice of syrup on the side. Mix in the syrup to your desired level of sweetness and enjoy. For added flavor all our syrups are made fresh from real ingredients and are therefore subject to availability. Ask your server about our current list of available flavors.
OG: 1.052 TG: 1.010 ABV: 5.42 IBU: 40 SRM: 3
River Rock Porter
Brewing salts carefully added to the kettle match our brewing water to that of London, a city renowned for its Porters. This ensures a crisper malt finish which keeps the beer from feeling too heavy or cloying. Hops make their appearance only on the tail end of this beer, providing a mild bitterness to the finish. Despite its deep dark color, this porter feels light on the tongue and deceptively drinkable.
Hops: Cascade, Goldings, Perle.
OG: 1.050 TG: 1.010 ABV: 5.2 IBU: 35 SRM:26
On Nitro Tap:
Working Man’s ESB
This beer is a very dark ebony colored stout with a thick 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 smoothness.
Hops: Chinook, Golding
OG: 1.045 TG: 1.007 ABV: 4.9 IBU: 43 SRM: 31
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.
Malts: Premium 2-row Malt and 75L Crystal Malt
OG: 1.056 TG 1.010 ABV: 5.93 IBU: 44 SRM: 11
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 , Munich Malt, 40L Crystal, & Black Barley
Hops: Chinook and Cascade
OG: 1.065 TG: 1.015 ABV: 6.45 IBU: 30 SRM: 35
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!
Malts: Premium 2-row Malt
OG: 1.039 TG: 1.005 ABV: 4.39
