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.

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 hops used for both flavoring and aroma. Five pounds of fresh Brewers Gold hops per barrel were added in three different additions in every batch. These fresh Brewers Gold hops 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 blackcurrant, fruity and spicy notes usually associated with Brewers Gold 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 Brewers Gold
OG: 1.061 TG: 1.013 ABV: 6.19 IBU: 60 SRM: 7
Spontaneous Generation Berliner Weiße
In the middle ages, thinkers theorized that life – if given the proper conditions – could spring up from lifeless matter spontaneously. For this beer, we’ve recreated the magic of spontaneous generation by storing our wort in the brew kettle overnight and adding lactobacillus to sour the liquid. From the lifeless wort, a tart, tasty, light Summer wheat has sprung forth with centuries of brewing tradition behind it.
OG: 1.031 TG: 1.004 ABV: 3.48
Munich and Crystal Malt provide a nice, bready, malt backbone that supports a piney and citrus hop profile provided by Simcoe and Chinook Hops. This IPA has a mild bitterness and a pleasant hop aroma.
OG: 1.064 TG: 1.013 ABV: 6.19 IBU: 78 SRM: 6
Window Seat Wheat
It is that time of year again, trying to get that last trip in before the weather begins to change. Take the window seat on this adventure and enjoy our new well rounded and flavorful Wheat beer! The taste of orange peel, and coriander, can be hinted at, along with some cinnamon on the nose to complement the floral and spice of the hops. There’s nothing like getting to take a break after a season of hard work, full of triumph and woes, and finally getting to relax. So fasten your seat belts, and unwind with our delicious wheat beer and enjoy the ride!
OG: 1.046 TG: 1.007 ABV: 5.03 IBU: 24 SRM: 5
On Nitro Tap:
Redcap’s Tooth Scotch Ale
A hearty, malt forward Scotch Ale with a rich amber color and earthiness from the peated malt, that finishes with a subtle hint of smoked malt. Watch the fog roll in while imagining the sound of a lone bagpiper on the hill.
OG: 1.077 TG: 1.025 ABV: 6.71 IBU: 20 SRM: 8
Edgefield Extra 2013 Barley Wine
The Extra’s roots go back nearly to the very beginning of the brewery’s founding in 1991. In its original form, the Extra was a 7-8% ABV strong ale that was famous for wreaking havoc at the 1992 company picnic and in tap houses around McMenamins. It’s been more than twenty years since that fateful day, but now it has returned as Edgefield’s Barley Wine and strongest offering at nearly 9.5%. This Extra is a traditional English Barley Wine that is huge on Maris Otter malt character and brimming with graham cracker and toffee flavors. This special link between the past and present has been one of our brewers’ favorite technical challenges to make and is a beer that promises to age extremely well. Cheers!
OG: 1.100 TG: 1.027 ABV: 9.42 IBU: 50 SRM: 16
Major Threat Double IPA
The latest installment in our DIPA 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!
OG: 1.078 TG: 1.016 ABV: 8.0 IBU: 71 SRM: 7
Bagdad Single Hop Series: Delta
Bagdad Ale is a benchmark beer for McMenamins, our Bagdad is one for the lover of light, crisp, and flavorful beers. 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.
OG: 1.049 TG: 1.008 ABV: 4.4 IBU: 29 SRM: 4
A classic Northwest pale ale, its signature Cascade hop nose and intense hopped flavor blend nicely with the caramel tones from the crystal malt.
