Black Widow Porter

Black Widow
Originally created at the Thompson Brewery on October 15, 1991, Black Widow has now become an expected and welcome Halloween treat at all McMenamins pubs and restaurants. 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

TKO Double IPA
The key to brewing a quality Double IPA is achieving a balance between malty goodness and hop flavor and aroma. This is crucial to offset the high alcohol content associated with double IPAs. Be respectful of this big bruiser or you may just find yourself on the canvas and down for the count.
Malts: Pilsen, Vienna, Wheat, 75L Crystal
Hops: Chinook
OG: 1.078  TG: 1.015  ABV: 8.13  IBU: 100+  SRM: 8

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

Simcoe Smash Pale Ale
This is a “smash” beer which stands for “single malt and single hop.” This batch follows up on the success of Citra Smash and Mosaic Smash employing the dual-purpose Simcoe hop. Look for herbal, earthy and fruity notes from this variety against the toasty Vienna malt in this hoppy golden ale.
Malts: Vienna Malt
Hops: Simcoe
OG: 1.041  TG: 1.007  ABV: 4.39  IBU: 42  SRM: 4

On Nitro Tap:
Back Porch Porter
Back Porch Porter is a superb sipping porter. Smooth and creamy with just the right chocolate/roast balance, this ale has the complexity that makes your tongue yearn for another chance to explore. Order your second pint now, it will give it a chance to open up while you sip your first. Cheers!
Malts: 2-Row Malt, 40L Crystal Malt, 120L Crystal Malt, Kiln Coffee Malt, Chocolate Malt, Black Malt, Flaked Barley
Hops: Centennial, Golding
OG: 1.059  TG: 1.010  ABV: 6.32  IBU: 23  SRM: 38

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, Superior Pilsen, CaraMunich 40
Hops: Nugget, Centennial, Chinook
OG: 1.064  TG: 1.012  ABV: 6.71  IBU: 77  SRM: 5

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
