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. 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.

Antigoon’s Belgian Ale
Our Belgian ale is named after Druon Antigoon, a one handed giant whose myth gave the city of Antwerp its name. Malty and spicey with classic Belgian esters and notes of banana and cocoa, this smooth ale is strong enough for a giant. Finishing with hints of dark chocolate and smoke, you may find yourself transported to the center of Antwerp, facing the statue of Brabo forever clutching the severed hand of an ancient giant.

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.
