Rock Creek
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

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

Squeeze Play IPA (Dry-Hopped)
In the 9th inning with the home team on third base in a tie ball game CPR Brewery steps up to the plate and offers up the Squeeze Play IPA to welcome home our beloved Hillsboro Hops. This crisp, summer-style IPA swings big with citrusy NW hops and brings our base runners home with a clean, dry finish. So hoist a pint and root, root, root for the home team!
Malts: Superior Pilsen, 2-Row
Hops: Chinook, Cascade, Centennial
OG: 1.061 TG: 1.009 ABV: 6.71 IBU: 63 SRM: 4

Dark Star
Lovers of hop, your star has risen. Dark Star's solid malt backbone is laced with black malts for unmatched robustness and complexity, allowing it to shoulder a bounty of NW hops with unparalleled grace. Big, bold, and brimming with flavor, this is our definition of Cascadian Dark.
Malts: 2-Row Malt, 75L Crystal Malt, 120L Crystal Malt, Carafa Special II
Hops: Centennial, Simcoe
OG: 1.074 TG: 1.014 ABV: 7.74 IBU: 93 SRM: 30

Hop Blossom Lager
Pungent floral aroma tinged with citrus zest invites you to drink deeply. When you do you will find NW hops dancing around a crisp, light, refreshing malt body with just a touch of bittering for balance. This is a perfect summer cooler. Cheers.
Malts: 2-Row, Dextra Pils
Hops: Simcoe, Citra, Crosby #004
OG: 1.044 TG: 1.006 ABV: 4.90 IBU: 43 SRM: 3

Thundercone Fresh Hop Ale
Fresh (or wet) Simcoe hops were frantically delivered straight from the hop fields to 20 McMenamins Breweries and each batch of "Thundercone" was brewed within hours of the hops being picked off of the vine. The resulting beer is an absolute fresh hop showcase. This beer starts with a smooth foundation and just a slight maltiness. The real star of this show is the fresh hops used for both flavoring and aroma. Five pounds of fresh Simcoe hops per barrel were added in three different additions in every batch. These fresh hops overwhelm "Thundercone" with an earthy, raw hop decadence that can only come from fresh hops. It is a greener and more unadulterated flavor and aroma than comes from dried hops. This beer is so refreshing and hop-filled that you may think you are dreaming but this beer is in reality a short lived dream come true.
Malts: Superior Pilsen, Caramel Munich 40
Hops: Galena, Cascade, Fresh Simcoe
OG: 1.061 TG: 1.013 ABV: 6.19 IBU: 58 SRM: 7
Buzz words: Medium-bodied, Citrusy, Fresh

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
