Ales on Tap

Enjoy a pint of McMenamins' finest!
Beer available to go at all McMenamins locations.

Farmstead Wheat
This beer was first fermented with a Belgium Wit yeast strain for a fruity nose and complex flavor and then pitched with an American yeast strain for a surprisingly clean finish.
Malts: Wheat, 2-Row, Vienna, Honey Malt
Hops: Perle
OG: 1.047 TG: 1.006 ABV: 5.29 IBU: 18 SRM: 6

McMenamins Irish Stout (on Nitro tap)
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.
Malts: Pale Malt, Flaked Barley, Brown Malt, Chocolate Malt, Roasted Barley
Hops: Nugget, US Golding
OG: 1.045 TG: 1.007 ABV: 4.90 IBU: 38 SRM: 32

Indian Summer IPA
And the fall brought an Indian summer where it's cool at night and warm all day. What a perfect time of year to kick back and enjoy this ultra hoppy brew featuring a clean, crisp taste along with prominent hop aroma and a lingering bitterness.
Malts: Premium Two-Row, Pale, Pilsen, Honey malt
Hops: Chinook, Mosaic, Centennial, Chinook (dry hop)
OG: 1.061 TG: 1.007 ABV: 6.97 IBU: 87 SRM: 6

Spiny Norman Double IPA * (HG)
Named after the giant hedgehog from Monty Python fame. Enormous in warmth and packed with wonderful fruity esters and an earthy, spicy subtleness provided by 4 different hop varieties.
Malts: Premium Two Row, Vienna, 75L Crystal
Hops: Horizon, Chinook, Sterling, Mosaic
OG: 1.076 TG: 1.012 ABV: 8.26 IBU: 93 SRM: 9

Ben's Fresh Hop Pale Ale
The perfect collaboration between grower and brewer. Pesticide, spray, and cage free from an estate in Warren, these hops were hand-picked by Chris to ensure the utmost in quality and freshness. The result is a pale ale with a fruity aroma and a mellow, lingering bitterness finishing crisp as an Autumn night. Try some!
Malts: Pilsen, Two-Row, Honey malt
Hops: Chinook, Organic Nugget and Cascade
OG: 1.048 TG: 1.008 ABV: 5.16 IBU: 17 SRM: 4

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: Ultra
Additional Ingredient: Licorice Root
OG: 1.074 TG: 1.017 ABV: 7.35 IBU: 30 SRM: 38

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

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

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
