Jam Session ISA

Jam Session ISA
Spring is in full bloom and its song plays the soundtrack to a beautiful season. Wanting to add our instrument to the collaboration, the McMenamins brewers were inspired to produce Jam Session ISA, a light and easy drinking beer that embodies the spirit of spring as it fades into summer. Being an India style, expect our trio of hops to be the front man of this band, providing strong riffs of floral and pine and a beat of citrus. A majority of the hops is added in late additions, which provides full flavors and aromas without the bittering astringency. Whether you’re a hard-rockin’ IPA drinker or a classical golden ale drinker, you’ll find the essence and song of the season in every pint. Enjoy a Jam Session ISA and turn the volume of your day up to 11. A one, a two, a one, two, three, Cheers!

OG: 1.040  TG: 1.006  ABV: 4.39 SRM 3

On Nitro Tap:
Palmer Lift Porter

Served via the nitro tap, this velvety brew will glissade over your palate delivering the dark goodness of chocolate. Named after the Palmer Chairlift that brings skiers up to the Palmer Glacier on Mt. Hood for year round shredding at 8,470 ft.

Hops: Chinook, Golding
OG: 1.058  TG: 1.010  ABV: 6.19  IBU: 21  SRM: 33

Flatlands Wheat
(Edgefield Brewery • Recipe by Nathan Whitney)
Flatlands Wheat is a American Wit with a twist! Coriander and orange peel were thrown into the boil just before flame off to give a spicy, citrusy aroma. Willamette hops were sparingly used, giving off a woody, spicy hop flavor. The hop presence doesn’t overpower the winter wheat that comes straight from the flatlands. Golden in color with a nice citrusy flavor, this ale is sure to quench.
Malts: 2-row, Red Wheat, Marris Otter, Pilsner, C15
Hops: Brewers Gold, Willamette, Ultra.
Adjuncts: Coriander, Bitter Orange Peel.
OG: 1.044  TG: 1.006  ABV: 4.90  IBU: 22  SRM: 4

Solar Sail IPA
Hold your pint up to the light and you will see sunshine in a glass. Tip it back, and enjoy the journey.
Malts: 2-Row Malt, Munich, Crystal 75, Flaked Barley
Hops: Centennial, Simcoe
OG: 1.067  TG: 1.010  ABV: 7.35  IBU: 91  SRM: 7

Worker Bee Pale
A crisp and dry-finishing pale ale that welcomes Spring and is loaded with hop bitterness and aroma. Inspired by a radio personality who urges the “worker bees” around the world to stand their ground, and tell their pigdog lizard bosses to stick those forked tongues back into their lizard heads.
Malts: Premium 2-row Malt and 75L Crystal Malt
Hops: Cascade
OG: 1.055 TG 1.008  ABV: 6.06  IBU: 40 SRM

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
