Kris Kringle
Just in time for the holidays, the busy-as-elves McMenamins brewers have created another wonderful gift for your taste buds this holiday season. The 2015 version of Kris Kringle is a hearty and robust ale with a big and bold malt complexity as well as an intense and flavorful hop profile. This "winter warmer" highlights the rich, toasty, aromatic and chocolaty malt flavors as its very sturdy foundation. Generous amounts of two different hop varieties were added in five different additions, which delivers a magnificent and massive hop assault. McMenamins brewers hope you enjoy this years' version of our old Holiday favorite, Kris Kringle. Happy Holidays and a Wonderful New Year!

Dunkelweizen directly translated means "Dark Wheat." It's a beer that has a long and storied history in Germany; specifically, the region of Bavaria. This beer is very low in hops yet still high in flavor. The Weihenstephan yeast is the real star of the show. It gives off soft and pleasant flavors of clove and banana. Dark crystal and chocolate malts give the Dunkel its color and slight roast flavor. Prost!
OG 1.048 TG 1.012 ABV 4.6 SRM: 20 IBU: 10

This Weizen has medium body with flavors and aromas of banana and clove. The texture of wheat imparts the sensation of a fluffy, creamy fullness that may progress to a light, spritzy finish aided by high carbonation. This style is always effervescent and always satisfying.
OG: 1.052 TG: 1.009 ABV: 5.5 IBU:28 SRM: 7

Green Room Gold
This is our easy drinking golden ale, featuring a soft malt body and a balancing noble hop profile. It is named after our famous Crystal Ballroom green room that has been the home to countless amazing musicians before and after they perform upstairs.
OG: 1.053 TG: 1.009 ABV: 5.68 IBU: 34 SRM: 4

Red Rhino
The Red Rhino is a Red Ale rich in color and flavor. It has just the right combination and amount of crystal malt to give this ale its signature deep red hue. Red Rhino is hopped with pungent Centennials and Cascade hops. In an attempt to round off this pure "C" hop beer, Centennial pellets were added at the end of fermentation.
OG: 1.061 TG: 1.012 ABV: 6.32 IBU: 82 SRM: 16

Leafhound IPA
A light straw color greets you in the glass and gives way to balanced flavors of citrus and soft pilsner malt.
OG: 1.063 TG: 1.011 ABV: 6.7 IBU: 80+ SRM: 7

Onward Caravan Barrel-Aged Turkish Coffee Ale
We teamed up with McMenamins Coffee Roasters Martyn Leaper and Kelly Ockinga to make an ale based on traditional Turkish coffee. Along with a nut brown ale base full of smooth caramel malt tones, we highlight flavors and aromas of fresh nuts, chocolate, heavy cream, and golden syrup from our Kenyan and El Salvador locally roasted coffee beans. A slight roastiness rears up at the end, along with the full floral spiciness of ground green cardamom seeds added during the brewing process and post-fermentation. A unique, satisfying brew. This batch aged in an American white oak barrel for five months.
OG: 1.057 TG: 1.013 ABV: 5.68 IBU: 19 SRM: 16

Another Day Malt Liquor
The sequel to our Make It Through the Night Light Lager, based on the touring tales of Portland punk supergroup, P.R.O.B.L.E.M.S. Another Day Malt Liquor features the same soft Pilsen malt and grassy noble hop flavors as its smaller cousin but with a bigger wallop. To "stay true to style," we added some flaked corn. Come by the Crystal Ballroom for a show and a snifter, and check out P.R.O.B.L.E.M.S.' album, Another Day, for a heaping dose of energetic punk rock.
OG: 1.080 TG: 1.020 ABV: 7.74 IBU: 26 SRM: 8

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.
Malts: Premium 2-row , Munich, 40L Crystal, and Black Barley
Hops: Chinook and Cascade
OG: 1.065  TG: 1.015  ABV: 6.45  IBU: 30  SRM: 35

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!
Malts: Premium 2-row Malt
Hops: Vary
Fruit: Raspberries
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.
ABV: 6.8%

Seasonal Blackberry Cider
Dark garnet in color, the aromas of fresh blackberries burst from the glass. The slightly tannic and tart blackberry component is bal- anced out by a small amount of residual sugar, while the fermented apple rounds out the mid-palate and finish.
