Black Widow Porter

Black Widow
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.
Malts: British Pale Malt, Munich, Flaked Barley, Wheat, 135/165 Crystal, Black, Roast
Hops: Chinook, Sterling Additional Ingredient: Licorice Root
OG: 1.074  TG: 1.017  ABV: 7.35  IBU: 41  SRM: 38

Scrub-Jay IPA
Like the scrub-jays that frequent the brewery, this IPA is so light bodied it can nearly fly. So enjoy the bright burst of citrusy hops and prepare to wing away.

Hops: Chinook, Amarillo, Falconer’s Flight
OG: 1.063  TG: 1.008  ABV: 7.10  IBU: 100+  SRM: 6

Sun Hammer Double IPA
Sun Hammer Double IPA is the result of the genesis and obliteration of two stars, the rise of our sun and its life-giving-mutation-spurring love from which sprang forth barley, hops, yeast, the Professor and myself. We combine to nourish you with a bold brew of barley orbited by resinous clouds of hop ether. Imbibe. Smile. Count our lucky stars.
Malts: 2-Row, Munich, Organic Crystal 60, Flaked Barley
Hops: Centennial, Simcoe
OG: 1.079  TG: 1.012  ABV: 8.64  IBU: 97  SRM: 11

McMenamins Irish Stout

On Nitro Tap:
McMenamins Irish Stout
McMenamins Irish Stout is our interpretation of the internationally renowned beer style that originated in Ireland. McMenamins Irish Stout is made as traditionally as possible with our own little twist. It is a very dark, ebony-colored stout with a thick, creamy and long-lasting head. The flavor is a fantastic fusion of coffee-like roasted barley bitterness and semi-sweet chocolate. A moderate hop bitterness balances pleasingly with this hearty backbone, while tiny nitrogen bubbles enhance the sensation on your taste buds with a smooth, silky creaminess. One sip will have your head in the Emerald Isle clouds. A touch of the Irish, the blessings of St. Patrick and a pint of McMenamins Irish Stout to you!
Malts: Pale Ale, Flaked Barley, Brown, Chocolate and Roast
Hops: Nugget and Delta
OG: 1.045  TG: 1.007  ABV: 4.90  IBU: 40  SRM: 34

Cascade Wheat
This crisp, easy-drinking American wheat beer is 47/53 malted white wheat and two-row barley. Generous flavor and aroma additions of Cascade hops give this beer a floral nose with hints of citrus.
Malts: Wheat, 2-Row
Hops: Cascade
OG: 1.046  TG: 1.006  ABV: 5.16  IBU: 21  SRM: 4

Barnstormer Pale Ale
Barnstorming was popular in the 1920s’ as pilots would fly from one farmer’s field to another offering airplane rides to the public. This pale ale is glowing golden amber in color and provides a complex malt flavor wonderfully balanced with 5 different hop varieties.
Malts: Premium Two Row, Flaked Barley, Oat Flakes, Caramel Munich 40, Organic 60L Crystal, 75L Crystal, 135/165L Crystal
Hops: Horizon, Amarillo, Mosaic, Tettnanger, Centennial
OG: 1.050  TG: 1.010  ABV: 5.16  IBU: 60  SRM: 8

Hammerhead
A classic northwest pale ale and one of McMenamins top selling beers. 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

Ruby Ale

Ruby
We continue to produce this top-selling ale with the same aims we had when brewing the first batch back in March 1986: To create an ale that is light, crisp and refreshingly fruity. Great Western Premium 2-row malts and 42 pounds of Oregon-grown and processed raspberry puree is used to craft every colorful batch.
Malts: Premium 2-row Malt
Hops: Vary
Fruit: Raspberries
OG: 1.039  TG: 1.005  ABV: 4.39

Terminator
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 that 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!
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
