Half Shell Golden
Half Shell Golden Ale is a light and refreshing Golden Ale perfect for a warm summer evening. It is brewed with Pale Ale malt, a touch of Crystal, Crystal Rye, Rye and Oat malts give it a golden color reminiscent of the awning over the “Half Shell” stage at Stewart Park in Roseburg where local residents can see world class musicians perform on Tuesday evenings throughout the summer. This ale is “first wort hopped” with Citra and Mosaic hops, a process in which hops are added to the kettle before it is heated, rather than when they are typically added (after the wort has begun to boil). This process provides a unique hop character and leads to more hop flavor and aroma. Additional hops were added during the boil and after to maximize the hop flavors and aromas, and “dry hopping” in the fermentor with Meridian to round out the hop profile.

Copper Moon has a bit more malt quality and hop character than most other summer seasonals, giving rise to a re- freshing, flavorful beer style that we like to identify as a Summer Pale Ale. A flavorsome yet summery smooth sweetness is the first thing you’ll taste. The hop flavor and aroma intermingle delightfully to gen- erate a dazzling citrusy, floral and slightly spicy olfactory experience. There’s a Copper Moon risin’ again this summer across McMenamins, make sure that you check it out.

On Nitro Tap:
McMenamins Irish Stout
This is our Halfway to Saint Patrick’s Day Seasonal and will pour exclusively on our nitro taps for the occasion. 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!

A classic Northwest pale ale and McMenamins top selling beer. 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 unfor-givable sin.

One of our most popular standards, we still make Ruby with the same aims we had when brewing the first batch back in March 1986: To create an ale light, crisp and refreshingly fruity. Great Western Premium 2-row and 42 pounds of Oregon-grown and processed raspber-ry puree is used to craft every colorful batch. Simple but delicious. Taste the original!

Edgefield Hard Apple Cider
Locally grown apples are juiced and fermented into a light, crisp and refreshing hard cider.
Edgefield Black Cherry Cider
Production Notes: The inspiration to create a dry cherry cider came di-rectly from the poster, pictured above which hangs at our cornerstone es-tablishment, the Barley Mill Pub. This poster was drawn and donated by a loyal customer and fan many years ago.
The Juice: The apples pressed off for fermentation were a blend of Red Delicious, Golden Delicious (added for color), Granny Smith (for acidity), and Fuji, Galas, and Honey Crisp (to increase sweetness). The fermented hard cider is then enfused or finished with Black Cherry juice.
Fermentation: We employ a cool fermentation, aerating the juice for the benefit of yeast cell growth. Typically a bit of malic acid (the predominant acid in green apples) is added to keep a good acid balance in the finished cider. We then allow the juice to ferment totally dry and just before filter-ing added a generous addition of Dark Cherry Juice for sweetening, color and flavor. The dark garnet color presents a deep cheery nose followed by a hint of fresh apples, in the mouth the cider has prominent cheery flavors and rounded sweetness.
