Hop Nova IPA

Attention hop heads! Prepare to be blow away by the explosive hop aroma of this NW style DIPA. Notes of apricots, fresh pine tips, and pineapple radiate from the beer's dense head. Each sip shines beautifully with flavors of tropical fruit and citrus slowing morphing to a smooth, yet dry, spicy hop finish. Despite its high alcohol content, a medium to light body ensures the beer remains crisp and drinkable. Just be sure to pace yourself, at 9% abv this is one beer you don't want to underestimate.

Gleeful Goat Porter
It's a little known fact that all the spent grain from the Old Church Brewery gets recycled as goat feed. Thus when a big malty Porter such as this one gets brewed the left overs make a special treat for our furry friends. This porter is packed with seven different specialty malts to add a generous amount of color and depth. A modest hop presence balances the beer without over powering it. Expect notes of caramel, coffee, chocolate, and a hint of spice in this complex full-bodied porter.

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 are 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!

Red Shift Amber Ale
This crisp amber ale exhibits flavors of toasted hazelnuts, caramel, candied dates, and a subdued hop woodiness. Red shift finishes dry with a prominent crystal malt character and only a suggestive hop bitterness to balance. This beer is a great option for those looking for something in-between the extremes of super hoppy and super malty.

On Nitro Tap:
Dark Matter CDA  (Nitro)
For those unfamiliar with the style, Cascadia Dark Ales combine the hop forwardness of American IPA with the roasted malt character of a stout. Beneath its creamy off-white head hides hop notes of evergreen, pine, and spice. Oats provide a smooth mouthfeel and enhance head retention, while black malts contribute the necessary color with minimal roasted flavors. Dark Matter finishes with a mild malty sweetness before fading to robust hop bitterness. Who says dark beers can't be hoppy?!
Malts: Premium 2-Row, Rolled Oats, Munich, Caramel Vienna, Black-Prinz, Black
Hops: Centennial, Chinook, Citra, Columbus, Simcoe
OG: 1.063 TG: 1.015 ABV: 6.20 IBU: 80 SRM: 34

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

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. 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.

Ruby Ale

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!

OG: 1.039  TG: 1.005  ABV: 4.39

Hard Cider & Perry

Edgefield Hard Apple Cider
Produced in 3,500 gallon batches 6 or 7 times per year.
Slight variation in batches, but cider is ~ 6.8% abv
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 Black Cherry Cider
6.7 % abv. Lightly carbonated. Always gluten-free

The apples pressed off for fermentation were a blend of Red Delicious, Golden Delicious (added for color), Granny Smith (for acidity), and Fuji, Galas, and Honey Crisp (to increase sweetness). The fermented hard cider is then enfused or finished with Black Cherry juice.

Edgefield Ciders are available on draft at all McMenamins locations and also sold in growlers to-go for home enjoyment. Recently, we have been able to increase our production and kegging capacity to be able to offer them to home draft customers by the 5gal Sanke keg. Please call the winery at 503.492.5467 for more information regarding dock sales of kegged cider.
