Oak Hills Brewpub
Ale & Cider on Tap
This is a beer to showcase the Mosaic hop. 11 pounds of this coveted hop strain were used in the brew. An offspring of the wildly popular Simcoe hop, Mosaics display an incredibly fresh, pineapple aroma and flavor. The bitterness of the beer comes from a pound and a half of Nugget hops. I wanted to use as much of the 11 pound box of Mosaics I have been saving for the flavor and aroma additions as I could. Mosaics are the most tropical, passion fruit, pineapple flavored hop I have ever tasted. The Mosaics are in very short supply right now as they are one of the newer hops on the market. This brand of IPA has been very popular and won't be around for long. Enjoy!!

To celebrate the 24th year of the Oak Hills brew pub we have concocted yet another original recipe. The Red Rhino is a red ale so rich in color and flavor that it has earned the Oak Hills patented "Rhino" moniker. Just the right combination and amount of crystal malt gives this ale its signature, deep red hue. Red Rhino is hopped with pungent Centennials and Cascade hops and in an attempt to round off this pure "C" hop beer, Centennial pellets were added toward the end of fermentation.
Malts: Maris Otter, Organic Crystal-60, Crystal 135-165 and Chocolate
Hops: Centennial, Cascade,
OG: 1.061 TG: 1.012 ABV: 6.32 IBU: 82 SRM: 16
This McMenamins classic has taken on a transformation out here on the Westside. This is a stronger more full flavored interpretation of the original. This version is more of an English style Pale. The Munich and Vienna malt provide a slightly toasted malt character, while the Willamette and Sterling hops add spice and floral qualities. This beer finishes smooth with just a touch of sweetness.
Malts: Two Row, Munich, Vienna
Hops: Chinook, Willamette, Sterling
OG: 1.055 TG: 1.010 ABV: 5.8 IBU: 39 SRM: 5
Dream Girl Wheat
The Dream girl wheat will put a smile on your face rain or shine. Brewed with Vienna and wheat malt, this American style wheat ale is sure to quench your summer thirst. Brewed with bitter orange peel and coriander, the Dream Girls has just the right amount of spice and flavor. Pairs wonderfully with any pub menu but is also unique enough to stand alone.
Malts: Premium Two-Row, Vienna, Wheat
Hops: Citra, Meridian
OG: 1.048 TG: 1.008 ABV: 4.9 IBU: 25 SRM: 3
Bike Commute Barley Wine
High Gravity Ale Glass sale only
Bike Commute Barley Wine is the first offering of this style from Oak Hills since I started brewing here in 2012. I only filled the kettle up half way to make this style. Less liquid means a higher octane product. The Bike Commute comes in at 10 percent and has a dark, complex malt flavor. Raisin and Oak flavors highlight this strong ale. Served in an 8 oz. Goblet, the Bike Commute is a slow sipping Delicacy.
Malts: Premium Two-Row, C-120, Melanoidin, Munich, Roast
Hops: Nugget, Chinook, Cascade, Horizon
OG: 1.102 TG: 1.023 ABV: 10.00 IBU: 41 SRM: 27
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 is 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!
Malts: Golden Promise, Vienna, Flaked Barley, Crystal C15
Hops: Chinook, Centennial, Mosaic, Falconer's Flight
OG: 1.047 TG: 1.010 ABV: 4.77 IBU: 51 SRM: 4
L-Train Cascadian Dark Ale
This batch of Cascadian Dark Ale is blazing a new trail at the Oak Hills Brewery. Brewed with Briess Black Prince malt, a dark porter like color is imparted without a heavily roasted and astringent flavor. This gives center court to the wonderful array of hops that makes the L-Train such a stand out brew. A moderate bittering addition lends a good opening hop bite while copious amounts of centennial hops in the flavor and aroma additions give a double-doubles worth of piney, citrus character.
Malts: Premium Two-Row, Black Prince
Hops: Centennial, Nugget
OG: 1.060 TG: 1.011 ABV: 6.32 IBU: 59 SRM: 30
Cole Miner's Porter
You like dark beer? This one’s for you. Over Thirty pounds of combined Chocolate and Roast malts give this porter a very dark, smooth traditional flavor. If you don’t think you’re a dark beer lover, grab a sample and give it another shot. Close your eyes and think of coffee, chocolate, and toffee. With the absence of Black malt, the bitterness you sometimes detect in dark stouts will not be present. Lightly hopped with low IBU Perles, the Black Perle Porter gives center stage to the Chocolate, Roast and Crystal malts. Cheers.
Malts: Two Row, Brown, Melanoidin, C-120, C- 135/165, Roast, Chocolate
OG: 1.051 TG: 1.016 ABV: 4.51 IBU: 27 SRM: 27
On Nitro Tap:
Brucifer Jalapeño Stout
The Brucifer is a devilish beer. Named for my good friend and longtime Edgefield brewer Bruce Loux, this robust Stout is infused with green Jalapeño peppers. Sure to pack a flavorful punch, the Brucifer is close to 7% ABV, and packed with pepper flavor. Jet Black in color, malt and hops take a back seat to the satanic pepper infusion.
Malts: 2-row malt, Black malt, C-40, Munich
OG: 1.064 TG: 1.012 ABV: 6.7 IBU:20 SRM: 19
Strawberry Short Cake Ale
Growing up, my Dad always requested Strawberry shortcake for his April 14th Birthday. So for April's special beer tasting, I have made the beer version of Dads favorite dessert. Victory malt gives the beer a bready shortcake flavor. Strawberry puree and fresh vanilla beans round out this decadent treat. The addition of Lactose and being on the Nitro tap adds a velvety, smooth mouthfeel. Happy Birthday Dad!
Malts: Pale malt, Victory, C-15
Hops: Centennial, Goldings
OG: 1.054 TG: 1.010 ABV: 5.6 IBU: 20 SRM: 6
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 Malt, Munich Malt, 40L Crystal, and 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
Hard Cider & Perry
Edgefield Hard Apple Cider
Locally grown apples are juiced and fermented into a light, crisp and refreshing hard cider.
The inspiration to create a dry cherry cider came directly from a poster drawn and donated by a loyal customer many years ago, that hangs at our cornerstone establishment, the Barley Mill Pub. We then allow the juice to ferment totally dry and just before filtering added a generous addition of Dark Cherry Juice for sweetening, color and flavor. The dark garnet color presents a deep cheery nose followed by a hint of fresh apples, in the mouth the cider has prominent cherry flavors and rounded sweetness.
ABV: 6.7% Gluten Free
